lyrics

Old skool Boom boom

Now I like punk rock
And I like guitars – (duh nuh on a real guitar)
Expressing my beliefs in all the rocking bars

But I like hip hop too
Scratchin up the beats – (quick scratch)
Throwing out rhymes, talkin politics

Bringing back the old old school
Anarchist beliefs
Louis Lingg, he was there, fighting the police

Back in the day
Yeah, it’s 1885
They’re dying for the cause, they’re giving up their lives


Chorus
Boom boom tick tick boom (kick kick snare snare kick) whiny noise thing
Takin out the banks – oh yeah! (scratch interlude)
Boom boom tick tick boom
Taking out their tanks – Oh yeah!
Boom boom tick tick boom
Takin out the corporations
Boom boom tick tick boom
I’m talkin bout an end to exploitation

Yeah, I know things are different,
It ain’t the same world
Still too many people
Follow too many rules

People nowadays
they got too much to lose
With the world burning up
That’s just a goddamned excuse

Blowing up the world bank
Blocking out the G8
Stopping coca cola
fuckers gonna get a taste

We gotta hit hit the streets
Take the power back
Government warning
This anarchist will attack!




Bridge
Chorus

(in radio voice apart from acronyms shouted together!)
“GGG good morning slaves
This is your C E O
This is a newsflash for you
Your life is P O O (double O)
Dddd do what we say
I’ll call the I M F
All your social programs
Can fuck O F F (double F?)
All that we be feedin ya is G M O
You better all respect the status Q U O
Yer fuck with us I’ll send the C I A
Yer joke book democracy is D O A
Cccc consume and die
enter your P I N
Believe all the hype
Rebellion’s an S I N”

Chorus x2:
Boom boom tick tick boom (kick kick snare snare kick) whiny noise thing
Takin out the banks – oh yeah! (scratch interlude)
Boom boom tick tick boom
Taking out their tanks – Oh yeah!
Boom boom tick tick boom
Takin out the corporations
Boom boom tick tick boom
I’m talkin bout an end to exploitation

about

Louis Lingg and the Bombs Paris, France

Louis Lingg and the Bombs are goddamn punk-rock-garage-pop-anarcho saviours of the 2 and half minute pop song. The bombs they throw are musical, they come from Paris (they could only come from Paris!) and they'll grab you and demand your instant attention.

Their sound is a mix of ultra-political anarchic punk rock and fizzing children's nursery rhyme riot-pop.
