The Vandals – Behind The Music

Well we finished up the record and we think that it’s the shit
And we want it to go huge, but to play it off legit
And the guy in A&R’s got the CD in his car
And he thinks track 4 and 6 are contenders
Put the play lists are so tight that we gotta do it right
And he’s getting a good feeling so we’re gonna take a meeting
With the radio promo and the marketing Homo’s
To see if we can get a green light

So we waited by the phone and they finally let us know
That the label is quote “Really excited”

This could be the big one, time to celebrate perhaps
Our fate is in the hands of strangers
Going gold or down the hole – you can kiss my ass

So we got a couple stations, we’re in medium rotation
But the P.D. isn’t sure if the single’s gonna work
Cause he’s gotta play The Cure and The Psychedelic Turds
For the 80’s flashback weekend
And our ad’s are in the trades, and a video got made
And it cost a hundred grand, but we never got it played
And we’re trying to hit the road, but the agent doesn’t know
If there’s enough in the budget for tour support

So we’re playing local clubs, and we’re trying to get a “buzz”
And we got a good review in “Music Connection”

This could be the big one, time to celebrate perhaps
Our fate is in the hands of strangers
Going gold or down the hole – you can kiss my ass

In a last ditch effort to rally up the troops
We ignored our last statement – 7 figures unrecouped
Cause we’re in it for the art, but we’d like to see if chart
In the billboard “top one thousand”
So we gave it our best shot, but the label says we’re dropped
And the drummer quit the band, and he’s working for his dad
So we’re holding auditions

This could be the big one, time to celebrate perhaps
Our fate is in the hands of strangers
Going gold or down the hole – you can kiss my ass

This could be the big one, time to celebrate perhaps
This could be the big one – you can kiss my ass
