Song Notes: I think it was this song that actually made me a Sparks Fan. I'd heard a few of their albums before and I liked them OK, but this song basically made me go "Oh, wow, these guys are awesome!". It's a really hilarious, overblown operatic song about those kids who live in the suburbs and basically haven't been anywhere near "The Streets" and think that they're Bad And Tough because they listen to gangsta rap; it's just kind of silly—not that they're listening to that, but that they're trying to ape that culture and embrace it as their own when they and their parents are the exact folks the culture's rebelling against. I really like this album a lot. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
