THIS

It's almost like he walked into the recording studio with no ideas at all and just made it all up in there

It looks to me like he was only interested in making things rhyme.
The lyrics make no sense.

They make sense. You just have to know the references. It's about the transformation of the culture from the 50's to the 70's.


it is about leading the pac 10 in scoring and taking your team to the elite eight only to be run out of the building by indiana.
they are very veiled references, but if you listen a few times you start to pick them up.

These are just a few of the musicians who have died in plane/helicopter crashes.  They were all flying in small/light aircraft.  Don't fly in small aircraft. Farking death traps is what they are.

The song itself is fine.  The way some people deify the song is obnoxious.

And those of you biatching about it being too long - it could always be Alice's Restaurant.

I once got trapped at an event in Pennsyltucky where the warm-up entertainment was a guy who did a 14-minute version of that song. how did I know he did a 14-minute version? He told us he was going to play his famous 14-minute version of that terrible, terrible song but first he had to tell the story of why his 14-minute version was so famous and how it was mentioned in some local newspaper and then he just proceeded to jerk that song off for 14 goddamn minutes.

The song is not about what you think it is about. It is about hippies destroying American culture.

I always get the lyrics confused with the Weird Al parody.

"... and good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye.  Soon I will be a Jedi."
