Screeching Weasel - radio blast

  Just back from a game of 5 a side football, bed soon then up at 4.45 for work so i can't be bothered writing much on today's update. So here's a band everyone should know, Screeching Weasel. This song, Radio Blast, was a 7" single that they put out in 1992 and was their show of distaste at the state of rock radio.


The product you're trying to sell
Isn't going over to well with me
And I just wanna see it explode
The stations have the feel of the pulse of the nation
And I'm losing my lunch
It's a rip off and I wanna see it exposed
Classic rock for balding farts
Who need to feel young
Plastic rock for snotnosed brats
Fat DJ's deciding what's hot
Spinning snake oil that the suckers forgot
Is the same slop they've been shoveled for thirty five years
The public doesn't know any better
But so what cause who's gonna let them
Hear anything that's not bought and paid for up front
The rancid puke that you're peddling 
Makes me sick and I'm telling you
I wanna see it blown up
Radio blast
I wanna say I'd like to see it explode
I'd like to say I wanna see it explode
Bought off by alternatives reps
Don't you ever forget
Who is really standing behind your paycheck
It's time for a structural change
It's time for a pipe bomb in the basement
I think it's time to smash you
Don't worry about inflation
Take a well desreved vacation
And sign off from a crater
