I sure do know a lot of nice people. And all of them post on Facebook. I don’t like to rain on their parade ... everyone should find joy. But I don’t think happy people ever stop to think how oppressive it can for those of us who are not always happy, to be force fed niceness. So here are some angry songs I like to listen to when it gets too nice out there.
Green Day, “Basket Case”. Sometimes I give myself the creeps.
Tonio K, “H-A-T-R-E-D”. Oh, yes I wish I was as mellow, as for instance Jackson Browne. But "Fountain of Sorrow" my ass, motherfucker, I hope you wind up in the ground.
Miranda Lambert, “Kerosene”. Forget your high society, I'm soakin' it in kerosene.
John Lennon, “How Do You Sleep?” Those freaks was right when they said you was dead.
DMX, “What’s My Name?”. I'm not a nice person. I mean I'd smack the shit out you twice, dog, and that's before I start cursin'.
Marianne Faithfull, “Why’d Ya Do It?” Every time I see your dick I see her cunt in my bed.
Fear, “I Don’t Care About You”. Fuck you!
Drowning Pool, “Bodies”. Let the bodies hit the floor.
L7, “Shitlist”. I write a list of all you assholes that won't be missed.
2Pac, “Hit ‘Em Up”. My .44 make sure all y'all kids don't grow.
(To be honest, none of the first nine come close to the last one.)
