Nevermind The Back Problems

Undefeated - 1:27
If I had a penny for every time that someone said,
“Didn’t you read the magazines? They said that punk is dead.”
I’d have the money to waste my time at punk shows every night,
So you give up and go home if you want, but I’m signed up for life.

And maybe punk’s a promise that was never fully kept;
Johnny Rotten been selling butter on telly while England slept.
I’ve seen the Damned with two original members in the band,
But nevertheless I’ll smash it up whenever I get the chance.

And If I had a penny for every time that someone said,
“Didn’t you hear the radio? They said that punk is dead.”
I’d have the money to go to indie venues every night,
So you give up and go home if you want, but I’m signed up for life.

I’ve spent my time at Cambridge Folk and seated classical shows,
I’ve got a taste for techno and I love Counting Crows.
But if I want to flex my head with a sense of community
While running round in circle pits, you know what it has to be.

Nevermind the back problems.

If I had a penny for every time that someone said,
"How the hell are you still standing? Go to fucking bed!"
I’d still wake up to ringing ears, shivering sweat and shame,
But I’d have the money to get back up and do it all over again.

So give me beer and straight edge kids and music that’s just noise,
Give me hardcore, grind and ska, and emocore and Oi!
I’ll find the money to waste my time at punk shows every night,
So you give up and go home if you want, but I’m signed up for life.
