FREAKS👻 in uniforms!
In most cases, people feel more comfortable with guidelines and rules on how to do things. And if you venture outside those societal expectations...you are considered strange or difficult or worse. The music industry is no different and actually can be quite brutal. For example, another favorite musician of mine was told she was shit, she was told to leave the US because she would never amount to anything here. She did. She moved to London and played and garnered an audience, a huge following and released an incredibly successful debut album...at which point she was promptly welcomed home to continue her success here. Now 17 albums later...she’s still successful on her terms. Never conformed to the pressures of the industry. She still lives overseas though😂 Just giving an example of how fickle I know the industry to be.
Being a Horrorpops fan...I’m sure you’ve heard people say “oh they aren’t a real psychobilly band” or “you’re not a true psycho if you like them” blah blah, but I’m not exactly sure they ever claimed to be a purely psychobilly band. It’s pretty clear they draw influences from yes psychobilly...but also new wave, punk rock, ska...rock n’ roll in general, even horror films. It truly feels like they play for arts sake and not to fit into one box, one genre. That is the magic of the Horrorpops and why they appeal to such a large audience. Plus their shows are super high energy, fun, dramatic and visually pleasing. Art👻
So...i think that is what the song is about. The idea that you don’t have to fit into one particular genre or subculture to belong and/or embrace it all. Thoughts?🖤
It's low self esteem
A zombified closed community
A brainwashed breed of hypocrisy
It's misguided loyalty!
But love singing “You can go "Na-Na-Na-Na" yourself” of course!!
