Heck, you even make exceptions when performing, considering the topicality of "You're Not A Fucking Vampire", for example. I'm not knocking you, mind you, just pointing out that none of us have set-in-stone rules when it comes to personal taste.Kyle Motor wrote:I'm talking stuff specifically aimed at politics, protest songs, etc. The more specific the song's topic, the more dated and ultimately useless it becomes in my mind.
"Eve Of Destruction" is just so corny that I kind of like it. Plus it's topic is wide-ranging, which helps a lot. Much like "Revolution" by The Beatles.
"You're Not A Fucking Vampire" is more about the futility and destructively transitive nature of fads; which is an enduring topic. Also, I get a drum solo on it.
