The Music sucks in Iraq

Like a party with a bad DJ.. the people are starting to tire of the same old tune.

Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and President Bush would have you believe that it is Peoples fault that the US will withdraw in failure from Iraq. They say that this attitude is only making things worse. That its’ a self-fulfilling prophecy.

But yet, who’s directing the show? Who’s playing the tunes.

When I show up with a whole bunch of friends to a party that’s supposed to be freakin’ awesome… and at first it is, the booze is good… the food too, and I’m with all my friends, so that’s got to be good too. But then the DJ keeps playing this really crappy music, over and over. Soon enough my friends and I grow tired… it’s not fun anymore, I tell my friend this, he agrees… he tells his friend, who is a little more drunk… but not so drunk to realize that yes, the Music really does suck.

So we go ask the DJ, is there any better music coming?

The DJ says: “What are you talking about! I spin the best disks this side of Peoria!”

So you say “Well, actually it was pretty good at the start, but since then it’s really gotten bad”

The DJ says: “Well, what do you mean, it’s been the same the whole way through! We’re really rocking here! Just sit back, enjoy, I guarantee you’ll get into it.

You: “Well, no actually, we’re really not enjoying ourselves, in fact, I think we’re just going to leave, and most of my friends are too cuz they think the same as I do.”

“The DJ: “Well if you do that, my club will go out of business. It’s not my fault you guys don’t like the music… the music is great! People just need to realise that this is the greatest music this side of Peoria!”

You: “Sorry, we’re outta here”

Here’s a verse from “BYOB” by System of a Down.

Marching forward hypocritic
And hypnotic computers
You depend on our protection
Yet you feed us lies from the tablecloth
La la la la la la la la la la
Everybody is going to the party
Have a real good time
Dancing in the desert
Blowing up the sunshine
Kneeling roses
Disappearing into Moses’ dry mouth
Breaking into Fort Knox
Stealing our intentions
Hangars sitting, dripped in oil

I highly recommend checking out the preview at the iTunes Music Store.
