Marconi plays the mamba,
listen to the radio,
Don't you remember we built this city,
we built this city on rock and roll
Now we know why this song was voted one of Blender Magazine's 50 worst songs of all time.

Marconi plays the mamba
It's about radio, right? ok. Guglielmo Marconi developed practical radio transmission around the turn of the last century. Fair enough. But what's this 'mamba'? A Mamba is a kind of poisonous snake. Hey, maybe they mean 'Mambo', a form of Cuban dance music of the 1940s and '50s, typically featuring Hammond organ, out-of-tune brass and a lot of shouting. Not very Rock'n'Roll. Not very Edwardian either. So I guess they must mean the snake...
