about

Some bands keep right on humping their legacy despite not having written a new song since 1985. That's fine. Teen rebellion is more about treading water than about making any progress towards shore.

lyrics

I wasn’t down with the mainstream, Baby. And neither were you.
Punk rock was a fashion show, so what the hell could you do?
We never had any goddamned movement. We were just rock’n’roll bands.
And pulling our heads out from our asses never figured into our plans.

So, whaddya wanna do now? Keep milking out that cash cow?
Stride out anew, or stay tried and true? There’s still hell to pay.
So, whaddya wanna do next? Can you remain in context?
And affect change or just rearrange that same old shit from yesterday?

I hung out with the rebels, Baby. They all looked the same.
They all wore the uniform and carried the rulebook in the game.
It transcends any punk rock song ‘cause stupid is as stupid does.
We never made any goddamned progress. The same as it ever was.
