A winning combination of lyrics and riffs
“[i]When I was a kid, I was a dick/And nothing changes[/i]” wins lyric of the week by a country mile. When I was a kid, I once put my finger in a pencil sharpener to see if it’d go pointy (it went flappy), so I sympathise with singer James Brown. The brilliant idiocy of the lyrics is matched by a riff that sounds like Bloc Party’s ‘Helicopter’ made over by Michael Bay, lurching and screaming like a monster truck being ripped in two.
