It also means that the shithole bar in the expensive part of town that I hear it at has stopped service.
And also the douchebros in said bar are singing along to it as a reminder of what a shithole crowd you're surrounded by in that shithole place.
From what I understand, the guy who wrote it came out and said it wasn't about closing time at a bar, but his impending fatherhood. Which makes it all the more worse as he implies that this banal song has a deep meaning. Also, what, sex is over after the wife has a baby?
That's what Elvis thought.
Endut! Hoch Hech!

I feel that, had he lived, John Lennon would have loved Donkey Kong.

Whatever, you guys just don't *get* the 90's.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I'm happy none of this makes any sense to me because I don't know what song you're talking about and I prefer to keep it that way.

Id be down with half of them. Fuck those two headliners though. Never heard Save Ferris alwsys hated the name and left it at that. Goldfinger as I recall were underwhelming. TMMB, Fishbone, Aquabats and Hepcat though should be a good time though.

I saw Goldfinger open for the Pistols! :mrgreen:

I remember they were indeed quite underwhelming...

Aren't Aquabats a mormon band or something?

Ska, not mormon.

Faux addendum: actually, they're a kid-friendly band. Super fun.

You might be confusing them with Gwar.

I had a mormon friend that was super into them, I guess that's the connection. I thought they were religious somehow.
