Default TV Party as performed by Black Flag

These flag wavers needed some way to appeal to the meatballs out there, what with all the songs about ****ty cops, misery, not getting laid, and horrible things in general. The beauty of course is that all those things are potentially implied in this one too, it's just sort of brushed aside. They dont even watch the news. And they have beer. Beerbeerbeer. 99 bottles and the chips ain't some. What else have they to do? Not much given what else they have to sing about. They don't do **** and they don't go outside. They are usually so close to the edge that a push might be it. Everybody's gonna be there though. The whole gang. And they even gave the fight club a rest for awhile. As we all remember, they kicked the **** out of each other so cops might think they didn't have to. And because it was better, in the long run, then trying to kick the **** out of cops (or someone the cops might care about more). They were fighting a war and couldn't win. Except Henry, hes doing ok. Probably because his name sounds like a chocolate bar. Ambiguously so too.

Or maybe they were looking up North Korea and people got anxious so they thought house arrest and boisterous drinking songs were a good idea. They chant like a bunch of pirates at the beginning. To be fair, pirates are better than cowboys. In the end, meatheads will like this one. Until they realize it's only one. A big fat one.


P.S. This one has a riff...oooh fancy. Look whose moving up in the world.

Rollins sang on the Damaged album. I don't know the TV shows. To some extent the exact shows were probably beside the point. But maybe not.

Because what you wrote left me with the impression that you’ve never heard the song.

What about the pirate chanting? And the fact that many of the other songs off the Damaged album don't have riffs per se. I also paraphrase some of the lyrics.
