Diss Me – Mysterex

The Granny Herald (dressed up as new digital lamb these days) had a story about songs written in response to celebrity feuds.

Don’t panic I.  I’m not going to reference any songs by Taylor Swift.

Don’t panic II.  The rules are if the link is from the home page, that is acceptable.  It’s a worry if I actually go looking for this type of tripe.

I digress (which of course is another word for “blog”).  There’s all sorts of songs about feuds but naturally I’m going to use this as a cheap opportunity to reference a song that I live.  Correction love.

Anyway, long story short or, as they say around here, long story not quite as long.

A song about real bile, so the man says below.  Man joins band.  Man joins punk band. Man then leaves said band to pursue a career!

So you leave a band playing dismissive songs about dreaded nine to fivers to become a nine to fiver.  Say no more:

Well i think you know enough to sing about hating nine to fivers
Well you’re a bloody hypocrite just a dirty social climber
Nine to fiver social climber oh yeah

Well you think you’re the next big up and coming thing
You’re the beautiful people you really think you’re hip
With all your trust fame and fortune too
Well if that’s what you think then you ain’t got a fucking clue
Nine to fiver social climber oh yeah

Mysterex you think you are but we know you’re not
Mysterex you think you are but we know you’re not
Mysterex you think you are but we know you’re not

Or better still, watch the video on Youtube:

The Scavengers – Mysterex

Here’s (I think) the original version.

And here’s the – in my opinion, superior AK79 version – naturally, NZ in late 1970’s there’s no video to go with this version:
