  • The Dead Kennedys - Holiday in Cambodia

    3:45

    Lyrics:

    So you been to school
    For a year or two
    And you know you've seen it all
    In daddy's car
    Thinkin' you'll go far
    Back east your type don't crawl

    Play ethnicky jazz
    To parade your snazz
    On your five grand stereo
    Braggin' that you know
    How the niggers feel cold
    And the slums got so much soul

    It's time to taste what you most fear
    Right guard will not help you here
    Brace yourself, my dear

    It's a holiday in Cambodia
    It's tough, kid, but its life
    It's a holiday in Cambodia
    Don't forget to pack a wife

    You're a star-belly sneech
    You suck like a leach
    You want everyone to act like you
    Kiss ass while you bitch
    So you can get rich
    But your boss gets richer off you

    Well you'll work harder
    With a gun in your back
    For a bowl of rice a day
    Slave for soldiers
    'Till you starve
    Then your head is skewered on a stake

    Now you can go where people are one
    Now you can go where they get things done
    What you need, my son.

    Is a holiday in Cambodia
    Where people dress in black
    A holiday in Cambodia
    Where you'll kiss ass or crack

    Pol pot, pol pot, pol pot, pol pot, etc.

    And it's a holiday in Cambodia
    Where you'll do what you're told
    A holiday in Cambodia
    Where the slums got so much soul

  • Dead Kennedys - Viva Las Vegas

    2:43

    lyrics:
    Twilight City gonna set my soul
    It's gonna set my soul on fire
    Got a whole lot of money that's ready to burn
    So get those stakes up high

    There's a thousand pretty women waiting out there
    They're all waiting, they'll never make air
    And I'm just the devil with a lung to spare, so

    Viva Las Vegas
    Viva Las Vegas
    Viva Las Vegas

    How I wish that there were more
    Than the 24 hours in the day
    Even if I ran out of speed, boy
    I wouldn't sleep a minute of the way

    Oh that blackjack and poker and the roulette wheel
    I'll poach your money lost on every deal
    All you need is sonar and nerves of steel, so

    Viva Las Vegas
    Viva Las Vegas
    Viva Las Vegas

    Viva Las Vegas
    Where the neon signs flash your name
    The one-arm bandits cash in
    All soap's down the drain
    Viva Las Vegas
    Turning day into nighttime
    Turning night into daytime
    If you see it once
    You'll never be the same again

    Gotta keep on running
    Gonna have me some money
    If it costs me my very last dime
    If I wind up broke
    Then I'll always remember that
    I had a swingin' time

    Oh, I'm gonna give it everything I've got
    Lady Luck's with me, the dice stay hot
    Got coke up my nose to dry away the snot, so

    Viva Las Vegas
    Viva Las Vegas
    Viva Las Vegas
    Viva, viva Las Vegas

  • Dead Kennedys: Soup Is Good Food

    4:18

    We're sorry
    But you're no longer needed
    Or wanted
    Or even cared about here
    Machines can do a better job than you
    This is what you get for asking questions

    The unions agree
    'Sacrifices must be made'
    Computers never go on strike
    To save the working man you've got to put him out to pasture

    Looks like we'll have to let you go
    Doesn't it feel fulfilling to know
    That you-the human being-are now obsolete
    And there's nothing in hell we'll let you do about it

    [Chorus]
    Soup is good food-(We don't need you any more)
    You made a good meal-(We don't need you any more)
    Now how do you feel-(We don't need you any more)
    To be shit out our ass
    And thrown in the cold like a piece of trash
    We're sorry
    You'll just have to leave
    Unemployment runs out after just six weeks
    How does it feel to be a budget cut?
    You're snipped
    You no longer exist

    Your number's been purged from our central computer
    So we can rig the facts
    And sweep you under the rug
    See our chart? Unemployment's going down
    If that ruins your life that's your problem

    Soup is Good Food, Etc.
    We're sorry
    We hate to interrupt
    But it's against the law to jump off this bridge
    You'll just have to kill yourself somewhere else
    A tourist might see you
    And we wouldn't want that

    I'm just doing my job, you know
    So say uncle
    And we'll take you to the mental health zoo
    Force feed you mind-melting chemicals
    Til even the outside world looks great

    In hi-tech science research labs
    It costs too much to bury all the dead
    The mutilated disease-injected
    Surplus rats who can't be used anymore

    So they're dumped (with no minister present)
    In a spiraling corkscrew dispose-all unit
    Ground into sludge and flushed away
    Aw geez:.

    Soup is good food
    You made a good meal, etc:.
    We know how much you'd like to die
    We joke about it on our coffee breaks
    But we're paid to force you to have a nice day
    In the wonderful world we made just for you
    Poor Rats, we human rodents chuckle
    At least we get a dignified cremation
    At yet
    At 6:00 tomorrow morning
    It's time to get up and go to work

  • Dead Kennedys- I Am the Owl

    4:53

    Music owned by whoever the Hell currently owns the Dead Kennedys songs, since they were taken away from Alternative Tentacles, where they belong.

    Lyrics:

    I am your plumber
    No I never went away
    I still bug your bedrooms
    And pick up everything you say
    It can be a boring job
    To monitor all day your excess talk

    I hear when you're drinking
    And cheating on your lonely wife
    I play tape recordings
    Of you to my friends at night

    We've got our girl in bed with you
    You're on candid camera
    We just un-elected you

    I am the owl
    I seek out the foul
    Wipe 'em away
    Keep America free
    For clean livin' folks like me

    If you demonstrate
    Against somebody we like
    I'll slip on my wig
    And see if I can start a riot
    Transform you to an angry mob
    All your leaders go to jail for my job

    But we ain't the Russians
    Political trials are taboo
    We've got our secret
    Ways of getting rid of you
    Fill you full of LSD
    Turn you loose on a freeway

    I am the owl
    I seek out the foul
    Wipe 'em away
    Keep America free
    For clean livin' folks like me

    We'll send you spinning
    We'll send you spinning
    We'll send you spinning all over the freeway
    Spinning on the crowded freeway
    Spinning on the freeway
    Spinning on the freeway
    Spin
    Spin
    Spin
    Spin
    Spin-Lookout

    The press, they never even cared
    Why a youth leader walked into a speeding car
    In ten years we'll leak the truth
    By then it's only so much paper

    Watergate hurt
    But nothing really ever changed
    A teeny bit quieter
    But we still play our little games

    We still play our little games
    We still play our little games
    We still play our little games
    We still play a lot of games

    I am the owl
    I seek out the foul
    Wipe 'em away
    (Keep America free)
    For me!

  • Kill the Poor - Trivium guitar cover - Chapman MLV

    3:15

    Thanks for stopping by. Pretty goofy cover in my opinion but its Trivium so of course I'm playing it. Interesting choice for them to cover this. Added in a little improvised octave riff thing at the end too, seemed to fit pretty well.


    Drop C# tuning.
    Not 100% sure what tuning Trivium used on this version. The original Dead Kennedys version is E standard tuning and you can actually still play this version in E as well, Trivium tend to stick to Drop C# and A# Standard these days so I went to use a guitar in Drop C# that I usually use for these covers and learned it while accounting for the lower tuning by just moving everything up one fret (3 frets up for the 6th string seeing that its dropped to C#, get it??)

    Track 10 - Stars And Stripes of Corruption

    Lyrics:
    Finally got to Washington in the middle of the night
    I couldn't wait
    I headed straight for the Capitol Mall
    My heart began to pound
    Yahoo! It really exists
    The American International Pictures logo

    I looked up at that Capitol Building
    Couldn't help but wonder why
    I felt like saying Hello, old friend

    Walked up the hill to touch it
    Then I unzipped my pants
    And pissed on it when nobody was looking

    Like a great eternal Klansman
    With his two flashing red eyes
    Turn around he's always watching
    The Washington monument pricks the sky
    With flags like pubic hair ringed 'round the bottom

    The symbols of our heritage
    Lit up proudly in the night
    Somehow fits to see the homeless people
    Passed out on the lawn

    So this is where it happens
    The power games and bribes
    All lobbying for a piece of ass

    Of the stars and stripes of corruption
    Makes me feel so ashamed
    To be an American
    When we're too stuck up to learn from our mistakes
    Trying to start another Viet Nam
    Whilke fiddling while Rome burns at home
    The Boss says, You're laid off. Blame the Japanese
    America's back, alright
    At the game it plays the worst
    Strip mining the world like a slave plantation

    No wonder others hate us
    And the Hitlers we handpick
    To bleed their people dry
    For our evil empire

    The drug we're fed
    To make us like it
    Is God and country with a band

    People we know who should know better
    Howl, America riles. Let's go to war!
    Business scams are what's worth dying for

    Are the Soviets our worst enemy?
    We're destroying ourselves instead
    Who cares about our civil rights
    As long as I get paid?

    The blind Me-Generation
    Doesn't care if life's a lie

    so easily used, so proud to enforce

    The stars and stripes of corruption
    Let's bring it all down!
    Tell me who's the real patriots
    The Archie Bunker slobs waving flags?
    Or the people with the guts to work
    For some real change
    Rednecks and bombs don't make us strong
    We loot the world, yet we can't even feed ourselves
    Our real test of strength is caring
    Not the toys of war we sell the world
    Just carry on, thankful to be farmed like worms
    Old glory for a blanket
    As you suck on your thumbs

    Real freedom scares you
    'Cos it means responsibility

    So you chicken out and threaten me

    Saying, Love it or leave it
    I'll get beat up if I criticize it
    You say you'll fight to the death
    To save your worthless flag

    If you want a banana republic that bad
    Why don't you go move to one
    But what can just one of us do?
    Against all that money and power
    Trying to crush us into roaches?

    We don't destroy society in a day
    Until we change ourselves first
    From the inside out

    We can start by not lying so much
    And treating other people like dirt
    It's easy not to base our lives
    On how much we can scam

    And you know
    It feels good to lift that monkey off our backs

    I'm thankful I live in a place
    Where I can say the things I do
    Without being taken out and shot
    So I'm on guard against the goons
    Trying to take my rights away
    We've got to rise above the need for cops and laws

    Let kids learn communication
    Instead of schools pushing competition
    How about more art and theater instead of sports?

    People will always do drugs
    Let's legalize them
    Crime drops when the mob can't price them
    Budget's in the red?
    Let's tax religion

    No one will do it for us
    We'll just have to fix ourselves
    Honesty ain't all that hard
    Just put Rambo back inside your pants
    Causing trouble for the system is much more fun

    Thank you for the toilet paper
    But your flag is meaningless to me
    Look around, we're all people
    Who needs countries anyway?

    Our land, I love it too
    I think I love it more than you
    I care enough to fight

    The stars and stripes of corruption
    Let's bring it all down!
    If we don't try
    If we just lie
    If we can't find
    A way to do it better than this
    Who will?

  • Holiday In Cambodia - The Dead Kennedys

    3:54

    Wyatt Scott grateful for many things with Holiday In Cambodia by The Dead Kennedys.

    The song is an attack on a stereotypical, moralizing, privileged American college student. Its lyrics offer a satirical view of young, well-to-do and self-righteous Americans, contrasting such a lifestyle with the brutal dictatorship of the Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot (depicted on the original single's label and mentioned in the lyrics), which is estimated to have been responsible for the deaths of some two million people in Cambodia between 1975 and 1979.

    The re-recording of this song that appears on Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables is different from the single version, being fifty-five seconds longer, at a higher tempo and featuring an extended, surf-influenced intro, as well as an extended bridge and guitar solo. While the original lyrics include the satirically quoted word niggers, subsequent performances by the reformed Dead Kennedys (post-2001, without vocalist Jello Biafra) and various other artists who have recorded the song over the years have omitted it substituting other words in its place. When the song was featured in Rock Band 2 as a downloadable track, along with two other songs by the group, the word was replaced with brothers, and in performances over the years with other groups, Biafra has often used blacks. The song also mentions the Dr. Seuss short story The Sneetches.
