Note 513

Christian Kruse

It’s quite interesting to see how political the bands of my youth have been. A lot of the songs have a very political message and I only ever noticed it years later. For example today I was listening to Rage Against The Machine today, in a nostalgic mood and stumbled over this line:

This time the bullet cold rocked ya
A yellow ribbon instead of a swastika
Nothin’ proper about ya propaganda
Fools follow rules when the set commands ya

This one is from „Bullet In The Head.“ Another line from „Just A Girl“ by No Doubt is this:

‘Cause I’m just a girl, oh, little old me
Well, don’t let me out of your sight
Oh, I’m just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don’t let me have any rights

And I can still remember the lyrics of a lot of these songs.

What I actually want to say? That I am on a nostalgic trip.
