Rolf Harris, Antipodian polymath
Covered Stairway to Heaven for a laugh
It would have been an interesting noise
Had Led Zep covered Two Little Boys

Korn
God I wish those assholes had never been born
They stink like shit, diarrhea, or something in between
And their songs are witten by the same people as Avril Lavigne

Dolores O'Riordan -
BCBers think her voice a weird one.
Apparently painfully shy, one wonders
Why she got married in her bra and punders.

David Johanson
Is better than those hos, Hansen
I'm sorry that was a crappy and unfair rhyme
I'll go back and edit if I get some spare time
You'd pay big bucks to know what you really think.

Mott the Hoople -
Their 'Best Of' was not a quadruple
Because though they were an interesting band
You can count their good songs on one hand.

Are still talked of to this day
But only as the band
Who gave birth to Franz Fricking Ferdinand

Lily Allen
Composes great songs fifty to the gallon.
All so-called songwriters should bow down and do her bidding.
(Only kidding.)

Caravan, Camel, Man and Greenslade
I seem to remember being played
By my brothers when I was just a brat.
They ought to be retrospectively charged for putting me through that.

George Harrison
When judged in comparison
With Lennon and Macca is something of a dark horse -
A polite way of saying 'far worse'.

Vini Reilly of The Durutti Column
Looks quite a bit like that hobbit Gollum.
Durutti should really be spelled Durruti which proves he has dyslexia
As well as anorexia.

Elton John
How many drugs was THAT guy on?
He had a glazed appearance and a zoned-out manner
But once in a while he played some great pianner

Gordon Sumner, known as Sting
How I hate to hear him sing
Songs about taking every breath
I wonder, Sting where is thy death?

Bobby Plant, voice of a siren,
Live? Sometimes great, others a dire 'un,
What did he care the good looking sod?
And he knew it - "I'm A Golden God!".
a bunch of dudes jamming but some of the abrupt edits serve as a reminder it owes a lot to technology. It finds ***** distancing himself from his musical past, but it sounds equally far from the dense abstraction his music would take on later

I would gladly buy Neil Innes
A million pints of Guinness
And would brook no rebuttals
About the greatness of The Rutles

Of The Vienna Boys Choir
At this time of year I rapidly tire
They sing about a 'tannenbaum' which is German for christmas tree
But as Midge Ure said about their home town, this means nothing to me.

The Wu-Tang Clan
Surprisingly popular with my gran
It took her a while to get past the swearing
But now the Wu-Wear's all she's wearing

Oh Nas
Why, since Illmatic, are you such a spaz?
Some have trumpeted returns to form
But greatness should have been the norm

Miles Davis
Never once said 'I can't play this'
How can you square those tangled-up quavers
With the celestial music he gave us?

James Brown
sure knew how to get down
But he'd get back up on the one
Sadly those days are now done
