The Gentle Art of Making Enemies

What we do better than anyone else. At home. And abroad.

Crap....what the hell was that guy singing about? I couldn't understand any of it. Am I getting that old?

Randal Graves said...

Now wait just one damn minute. Like Louie, Louie was a model of intelligibility. :)

Mary Ellen said...

randal...ok, now you're looking for trouble. How can you compare that screaming to Louie, Louie???

Louie Louie, oh no
Me gotta go
Aye-yi-yi-yi, I said
Louie Louie, oh baby
Me gotta go gotta go. See ya later. ;-)

Tom Harper said...

Cool. Who was that? Sounds sort of like a cross between Korn and Faith No More.

Randal Graves said...

Oh ME, perhaps you don't rock as much as I thought. ;-)

The words are so familiar/all the same greats, the same mistakes/
it doesn't have to be like this

If you don't make a friend now/
one might make you/so learn the gentle art of making enemies

Don't you look so surprised/happy birthday...fucker!/Blow that candle out, we're gonna kick you, kick you

Don't say you're not because you are/don't say you're not because you are/history tells us that you are/history tells us that you are

And all you need is just one more excuse/you put up one hell of a fight/you put up one hell of a fight/I wanna hear you very best excuse/I never felt this much alive/I never felt this much alive

See? Piece o' cake with ice cream on the side!

Tom, Korn? Ugh! Blasphemy! Keep your eye on the drumkit.

And everyone, read those rants, dammit! Fucking good stuff!

You headbangers.

What else can I say?


Mary Ellen said...

Don't you look so surprised/happy birthday...fucker!/Blow that candle out, we're gonna kick you, kick you

You're right...I guess I'm not so cool afterall. Something about the words...happy birthday fucker just doesn't do it for me.

In my best American Bandstand reference, I'd have to give it a 1 for lyrics and a 0 for the beat. I don't think you can dance to it. ;-)

And, hey! I DO ROCK! Just to the beat of a different that can actually play music. :-)

Great music. Great linkage. Great post.

Aren't you fecking great Randal Graves? (the answer would be oui)

Randal Graves said...

ME, I refuse to dignify your disdain of us, er, um, young? people with - dammit!

Fran, yay, someone else digs the mighty FNM! And if a great post constitutes tossing up a YouTube and linking to the hard work of others, sign me up for this blogging thing. :)

Oh. OK, then I was half right. I thought the voice sounded like Mike Patton, but the last time I saw a video of him he had a long ponytail and no shirt, so I didn't think this cleancut guy could be him.

And Goddamnit I like Korn. Their first album from '94 kicks ass. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
