When you were in high school people called some music alternative. It was a genre. It actually meant something. I think Pariah Piranha sounds like that.

Lyrics

R N Arg

Written By: Pariah Piranha

I remember when rock n roll mean
setting fires and smashing guitars
it was unadulterated rebellion
there was a spark and a need to listen
to relate to a general interest
to resist and become united
what the fuck happened?
who's going to save music?
i remember when the music was loud
feedback and tinnitus proud
wed come alive in the sound
im so excited and my pulse is pounding
i am sweating hard and my fists are raised up high
who's going to save music?
