Track Name: Intro.
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Keeping The Dream Alive
COAL CHAMBER PLAYED AT CHOACELLA THIS YEAR
WE DRANK SOME BEERS AND CHECKED THEM OUT
SAW WHAT THEY WERE ALL ABOUT
GO CHECK THEM OUT DUDE AND YOU'LL SEE
THEY'RE WORTH CHECKING OUT

TALKING NONSENSE
FOLLOWING THE STENCH OF INCENSE
THROUGH A CORRIDOR
TO FIND THE HIPPIE JAM BAND INSIDE
KEEPING THE DREAM ALIVE
HEY YOU GUYS ARE DOING A GOOD JOB
KEEPING THE DREAM ALIVE

WE TEND TO KEEP OUR MINDS CLOSED
TO SO MANY AWESOME BANDS THAT WE'LL NEVER GET TO KNOW

COAL CHAMBER PLAYED AT COACHELLA THIS YEAR
WE DRANK SOME BEERS AND CHECKED THEM OUT
SAW WHAT THEY WERE ALL ABOUT
NOW WE CAN SAY UNEQUIVOCALLY
THEY'RE WORTH CHECKING OUT
Track Name: They Only Play For Beer
THEY CLAP THEIR HANDS WHEN THEY APPROVE
NO ONE QUESTIONS THAT IMPLEMENTED CONVENTION
SOCIOLOGICALLY WE ARE ALL TOOLS
BUT NO ONE DARES ADMIT THAT THEY'RE PART OF THE CONSPIRACY

THEY STRIKE A CHORD
AND NO ONE GIVES A DAMN
ABOUT THE BAND WHO PLAYS IN THE BACK OF THE CLUB FOR BEER
THEY ONLY PLAY FOR BEER
Track Name: Guns & Fuckin' Roses
BACK IN THE DAY WHEN THE HAIR BANDS RULED
ONE CLEARLY DOMINATED THE SCENE
WELCOMING THE WORLD TO THE JUNGLE
THEY SHOT TO THE TOP LIKE A ROCKET QUEEN
FOR YEARS THEIR CAREERS CONTINUED TO FLOURISH
THEY FUCKED A LOT OF BITCHES AND RECORDED MANY HITS
BEFORE THEIR LEGIONS OF FANS BEGAN TO DISSIPATE
THEY CASHED IN THEIR CHIPS AND WALKED AWAY

YO AXL ROSE
DUDE WHERE CAN YOU BE?
WE'RE WAITING FOR YOUR NEW ALBUM PATIENTLY
I LOVE GUNS & ROSES
YOU GUYS FUCKING ROCK
SKIN TIGHT WHITE BIKER SHORTS
STUFFED WITH A SOCK

WELL THEIR TROUBLES BEGAN WHEN ADLER GOT CANNED FOR DANCING WITH MR. BROWNSTONE
THEN IZZY LEFT THE BAND TO FORM THE JU JU HOUNDS
PAYING TRIBUTE TO THE ROLLING STONES
DUFF'S FIRST SOLO ALBUM WAS A PIECE OF SHIT
NOBODY PAID MUCH ATTENTION TO IT
SLASH JUMPED KNEE-DEEP INTO THE SNAKE PIT
AND FOR SOME REASON THEY RELEASED "THE SPAGHETTI INCIDENT"

YO AXL ROSE
PLEASE HEAR MY PLEAS
I'M ANXIOUS TO HEAR "CHINESE DEMOCRACY"
GUNS & FUCKIN' ROSES ON EXTENDED HIATUS
THANKS FOR ALL THE ROCKING SHIT THAT YOU GAVE US

I HEARD AXL'S EGO CONTINUED TO SWELL
HE HIRED MOBY TO PRODUCE AND THEN TOLD HIM
TO GO TO HELL
BUCKETHEAD JOINED THE BAND
FANS HOPES WERE HIGH
BUT SHOWING UP LATE FOR PRACTICE LED TO HIS DEMISE
BACK IN 1999 WE GOT A LITTLE TASTE
WHEN A SONG APPEARED ON THE SOUNDTRACK FOR "END OF DAYS"
SPECULATIONS OF THE ALBUM'S FATE FUELS THE RUMOR MILL
SOME SAY IT WILL NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY BUT I'M SURE IT WILL

YO AXL ROSE
PLEASE KICK IT IN THE ASS
THE PUBLIC IS LOSING INTEREST FAST
I RECOGNIZE A GOOD ALBUM CAN TAKE A LONG TIME
BUT FOR FUCK'S SAKE MAN
IT'S BEEN FIFTEEN FUCKING YEARS
THIS SHIT BETTER BLOW MY FUCKING MIND
Track Name: Playing In This Band
THIS IS A SONG THAT WE'VE BEEN PLAYING SINCE WE BEGAN
SINCE WE BEGAN PLAYING IN THIS BAND
THIS SONG IS GETTING BORING MAN
LET'S CHANGE THE FUCKER UP
WE'LL GIVE THE PEOPLE SOMETHING DOPE AND FRESH TO TALK ABOUT

WE'LL PLAY THIS SONG A NEW WAY LIKE WE'VE NEVER PLAYED BEFORE
BECAUSE THAT'S THE WAY THAT PEOPLE PLAY WHEN THEY DON'T WANT TO BE IGNORED
THE NEW CHANGES THAT WE'VE ARRANGED WILL FUCK YOU PEOPLE UP
YOU'RE GOING TO LEAVE AND TALK ABOUT HOW GREAT IT WAS THAT YOU PAYED TWENTY BUCKS TO SEE US

WE'RE GONNA PLAY THIS FUCKER LIKE WE'VE NEVER PLAYED BEFORE
BECAUSE THAT'S THE WAY THAT PEOPLE PLAY WHEN THEY DON'T WANT TO BE IGNORED
THE NEW CHANGES THAT WE'VE ARRANGED WILL FUCK YOU PEOPLE UP
AND YOU'RE GONNA LEAVE AND TALK ABOUT HOW GREAT IT WAS THAT YOU PAID TWENTY BUCKS TO SEE US
Track Name: When The Dead Died
A LOT OF PEOPLE USED TO GO TO GRATEFUL DEAD SHOWS
THEY LOVED TO SEE THEM PLAY
EVERY TIME THEY CAME AROUND, FIFTY-THOUSAND FANS WOULD GO
MAN THEY LOVED TO SEE THEM PLAY

WHEN THE DEAD DIED
PEOPLE STARTED GOING TO PHISH SHOWS
I NEVER HEARD MUCH ABOUT PHISH
BEFORE THE DEAD DISBANDED

IN WICKER PARK CHICAGO I SAW AN EXCELLENT SHOW
BY THE WESLEY WILLIS FIASCO
IT WASN'T LONG AFTERWARD THAT THEY BROKE UP
AND THEN THEY LOST A GUITAR PLAYER

MANY YEARS BEFORE THE FIASCO BAND BROKE UP
A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE INTO DANIEL JOHNSTON
AND WHEN DANIEL JOHNSTON FINALLY GOT FAMOUS
A LOT OF PEOPLE GOT INTO WESLEY WILLIS

I THINK I'D MAKE A POOR EXCUSE FOR A ROCK STAR
I'VE GOT THE WRONG ATTITUDE
I DON'T THINK THAT I COULD GO FAR
I THINK I'D MAKE A REALLY POOR EXCUSE FOR A ROCK STAR
I CAN'T PLAY VERY WELL

I'LL JUST STAND HERE ON THE SIDELINES ADMIRING YOU ALL
YOU'RE ALL SO TALENTED SO I SAY
THANK YOU I'M GRATEFUL FOR ALL THE GREAT WORK THAT YOU'VE DONE
Track Name: What An Ugly Scene
WHAT AN UGLY SCENE
WHAT A REPUGNANT THING
THAT YOU'RE PRESENTING TO ME
WHAT AN UGLY BAND
AND UGLY FANS
THIS BAND ATTRACTS TO THEIR SCENE
BEHOLD THE FUTURE OF ROCK & ROLL

WHAT AN UGLY SCENE
WHAT A BUNCH OF MEAN
LOOKING MOTHERFUCKERS AT THE LIP
OF THE BANDSTAND
PROPPING UP ANOTHER BAND
MAN I'M FUCKING SICK OF THIS SHIT

IT'S A SHAME
THIS IS THE GAME
BEHOLD THE FUTURE OF ROCK & ROLL
THESE BANDS ALL SOUND THE SAME
UGLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
