  • Parody of Green Day's "American Idiot" (belowaveragedave)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Don’t want to be on American Idol
    Don’t want to sellout their way for success
    Don’t want to sing like Clay Acken
    Don’t want to wear a fancy suit or dress

    I don’t care about Simon Cowell
    What he says has really been often wrong
    Someone does a really good performance
    He acts like it was a lousy song
    And Paula is a eighties has been
    Who flirts with all the men who are young

    I'd rather be an American Comic
    Then try to
    sing like a top forty sellout
    I'd rather play some Bluegrass or Heavy Metal
    I think some songs should be sung with a loud shout

    Welcome to music in a vacuum
    Telling the consumer what to buy
    Using the TV media
    To brainwash every girl and guy
    But it’s mostly just sappy love songs
    No lyrics about what's important

    I’d like to see Dylan on Idol
    Or Weird Al or
    Bruce Springsteen
    I think they would have turned down
    I think they don’t know what music is keen

    Welcome to the new TV show
    Telling your kid who can sing
    So they give up their desire to be
    The next hot rock punk king
    But I’d rather have a Ramones album
    Then go listen to an Idol song

    I'll take care of that tonight along with the rest of my songs that came out over the past several months, and the songs I remember adding that weren't mine during the time (or any others I just happen to have as I'm surfing this site as I often do)

    Stavro Arrgolus:

    The function is fixed, so the merge is done.

    Merges tend to zap mp3s, so this needs a new one.

    The merge function is still out. Can't fix this at the moment.

    Everything else is working after yesterday's fixes (helping with the fixes is what caused me to forget this for a while), including everything show related, so it's not all bad. He's gorn orff this weekend, so I'll ask him about this when he returns.

    This page can be combined with which will attribute it as a collaboration as opposed to my song. . sorry for that
