Featuring Nova Social and half of SNMNMNM.
Kids, let me take a break from these jive epigrams to apologize for the hoariness of this conceit. when i wrote this song back in the late (and roaring!) nineties, painting BMG as an advancing horde of nazi stormtroopers was kind of funny, if a little mean-spirited.
Now it just seems laughable.
the modern rock street team is parked outside
the double bill concert of sublime and live
they're offering the keener kids a ride
and some MP3's for their new hard drives
who am i to think i can resist
when they're better than i am at shaking my own fist
they're out shaking hands with the kids at the mall
each smile a sales pitch for a content utopia
the indie rock street team will help us rebel
they took away the bass but left us all the treble
they're outside the club in gap and dockers
reminding us that lou barlow wore khakis
who am i to think that this is wrong
i did a bad job of selling my own song
i tried to be cool but i took too long
now the other boot has dropped so i'd better sing along
the interscope street team is taking names
teaching the children to play new games
the bertelsmann street team is covering the bases
with signs and paint in old familiar places
who am i to think that this is bad
when there's millions of kids
who need to feel sad
and i let them down when instead they chose
to turn to third rate bland
or counting crows
or even axl rose
or maybe even ben folds
the indie rock street team is bound to win
when my own kid sister turns me in
she's off to the playdium again
