No this song is not an ode to Garfield's hatred of the first day of the week. It's actually about a San Diego school shooting that happened in 1979. When the shooter was asked why she went on a rampage, she responded, "I just don't like Mondays."
This monster hit (currently it has 2.5 BILLION Youtube views) is actually a critique of the rampant materialism of Korean youth. It becomes pretty clear at the beginning of the video, when Psy tries to appear like a baller while treating a children's sandpit like a beach.
The '90s were a big time for abortion hits, and with lines like stop a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice, The Verve Pipe's "The Freshman" joined those ranks. I rate it better than Goo Goo Doll's "Slide," but worse than Ben Folds Five's "Brick."
This song was the summer anthem of 2011. Little did people realize the song isabout a teen plotting a shooting.It puts the lyricsAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks/ you better run, better run, outrun my gun into frightening context.
This song by the Canadian rockers Guess Who is not about an American woman, it's about America itself. With lines likeI don't need your war machines, this song is about rejecting the American culture they encountered when they became famous.
