The F-Bomb


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
i grew up in one of those tiny communities where the church is the center of all manner of recreation. 4-H and Boy Scouts met in the basement of the church, we played church league softball, met all of our friends in youth group, you get the idea. anyway this arrangement worked swell until high school and then everybody went to pieces in their own way. my way was rock 'n roll, which meant to most of the adults in the community that i had forsaken my swimming pool baptism for good times with the devil. which was fine with me. here's the story.

musically i was going for that avril lavigne post punk teeny bopper pop sound. i really like that stuff, it's energetic and beats the hell out of the do run run.

Lyrics
we were a couple of hayseeds
beaver and wallys
aw shucks and oh golly
what will aunt b think?
we wanted glory
locker room stories
the kind that would get us dates
the kind you can't find in 4-H

so we cooked up a plan
we started a band
(we asked the devil to make us rock stars)
something witty and sanguine
CVB meets Duran Duran
we learned how to play
we dropped out of FFA
and in our first song
we dropped the F-Bomb
(see you at the rock show)

a couple of short hair
bible club corsairs
first kiss at the county fair
what would Jesus do?
we wanted station
school reputations
the kind that would get us dates
the kind you can't find at 4-H

so we cooked up a plan
we started a band
(we asked the devil to make us rock stars)
something witty and sanguine
CVB meets Duran Duran
we learned how to play
we dropped out of FFA
and in our first song
we dropped the F-Bomb
(see you at the rock show)

ah, now I see
... how you came by your talent. a satanic pact.
great song, music and lyrics both. I like the way you concisely put all those evocative sociological details into a funny, entertaining package.
long live rock n roll!

Fantastic -
Cheap Trick and Fountains of Wayne have got nothing on you. Love the production and the lyrics are priceless. Listening in stocking feet.

Hell and Yes
This is bad ass. I'm really impressed with the production of it all. Tons of detail. How did you get that clicking sound in the plinky guitar breaks? I've listened to this like 9 times and can't figure out what it is. And who wouldn't be intrigued with keywords like "FFA, Jesus, Devil, 4-H, Rock Show"?

the click
so i used to drop picks all the time during live shows, and spill my beer, i was a mess, so i simplified and quit using picks altogether (kept the beer) and that clicking sound is the sound you'll ALWAYS get when you use the back of your nail to pick out a lead on the B or the high E string. if you listen to concrete blond, you'll hear the same sound here and there 'cause jim mankey plays bare, i guess he has similar pick dropping issues.

F-ing brilliant!
I love this, one of your strongest to date. I like that the stop/start style you've used before has evolved here into something that flows smoothly - it's a really nice contrast that retains the unique Tempie groove but ploughs new territory.
Typically layered and witty - dis da bomb!

F-ing shite
Joking, of course. Possibly one of your best. Aunt B had a wild side. I've seen her wolf her fair share of pickles. Huh?

If you ask the Devil to make you a rock star and he doesn't, does that mean you're still saved? Or is there a time limit? What if you become a rock star on your own accord? Like he hasn't done it within the last 15-20 years so is he no longer accountable? Aw hell. Someone get Daniel Webster on the ringer.

Love That Guitar Solo!
Read the fine print on that contract with the devil, dudes. Just sayin'.

The power of the Word That Dare Not Be Spoken. Crazy awesome song, real and funny and full of the reasons why geek yoots pick up the guitars in the first place. Those pumping guitars are full of energy, crisp and clever lyrics fired like bullets with frantic glee.

The Fountains of Wayne and Cheap Trick references echo true, but the story echos Frank Zappa's "Joe's Garage" too. I really think Frank would love this.

I sure do.
tempie said 2881 days ago (September 29th, 2009)
now
i've got to go listen to Joe's Garage. and if Frank would love this, then my job here is done...

funny thing...turns out that the girls you really want to date are in church after all...when those pent up religious girls decide to let loose you better hang on tight.

the tempie pic
that's a photo of drag racer shirley muldowney. when i was a kid i idolized her - a hot chick in a top fuel dragster. if there was something better than that in 78 i hadn't heard about it. i'm hoping some day she'll sue me over that picture so I get a chance to talk to her on the phone.

Wasn't Jesus fronting a band called the disciples ?

most people could not cram in a novel what you put in a song.

I'm glad to have this ocassion to make my Avril Lavigne coming out. So I'm not the only one.

kind of like eddie and the cruisers, except he only disappears for 3 days.

really glad you like the lyrics, coming from a guy with a killer imagination.

and i'm not surprised at all by the avril lavigne thing. she's got verve.
