Van 'the Man' Morrison
His career should be done
His complaints of the trappings of fame
all sound so annoyingly the same

David Byrne
who used to churn
out hits as a Talking Head
now is forgotten instead

Genesis' Peter Gabriel
as fat and bald as a cue-ball
Once Watcher Of The Skies
Now Eater Of The Pies

or...

Genesis' Peter Gabriel
as fat and bald as a cue-ball
"Sledgehammer" made his fame heady
but he loved to hear "Supper's Ready"

Adam and the Ants
Punk rockers wanted to kick them in the pants
Then burn them up in a righteous fire, leaving no trace
Of that poseur supreme and his cod-piece face

The Who
Was there anything they couldn't do?
Pretty much, you name it and they did it
Too bad it all went to crap after the drummer bit it

Haircut One Hundred
Had a really big hit but then blundered
After MTV brought them into millions of homes,
They were eaten by cannibals who gnawed their skinny bones

Remember Keith Emerson & Carl Palmer had a band called "3"?
Who was that cheeseball on bass, Rick Springfield, maybe?
How could they just replace Greg Lake with a complete stranger?
Come to think of it, maybe it was the guy from Night Ranger

Jandek, aka "The Representative of Corwood Industries"
Are his records good for anything except killing trees?
His 35 albums have wasted a lot of natural resources, that's for sure
The next documentary about him will probably be made by Al Gore

For a buncha funny lookin dudes, King Crimson
Always scored top quality trim, son
The ladies would line up outside their hotel room door
And beg to be fucked in 17/4

The Starland Vocal Band
For one brief shining moment the world lay at their command
Now they stand on the corner in fishnets, looking wearily left and right
"Twenty bucks for some afternoon delight!"

Morningwood
Their first album is actually pretty good!
Good clean power pop fun like your Raspberries and your Cheap Tricks
And a hot femme singer who goes topless for kicks

Come on - you know you wanna!
All for Dirty Kabbalah
Stand up and holla!

Bikini Kill
To some male punkers, they were quite a bitter pill
"They called me a rapist! They hate men!"
Why don't you just put on another Mentors album then?

Fallout Boy
If they all died I would jump for fucking joy
Four more soulless, spineless corporate little shits rotting atop the fetid heap
But four replacement mannequins will be coming soon, these days they make 'em cheap

Bauhaus
That lead singer needs a trip to the chow house!
What does he weigh, like 86 pounds?
Instead of drinking blood all day, try eating a Mounds

Crosby, Stills and (Especially) Nash
Without Young, about as exciting as three day old hash
They wore fur coats to the hippie festival
Crapping in golden toilets that emptied out on the rest of y'all

Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac
Used to fill her arse with gak
Given that excessive cocaine abuse can rot a person's septum
I'd hesitate to contemplate the state of Stevie's rectum

Frank Zappa, arty fuck,
Went 30 years, chancing his luck,
All the wankers fawned at his too big feet,
Duncan, Werewolf and The Mojo Elite.
