Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Somebody Gotta Save My Soul

Does this song have the greatest first line in rock history, or is your opinion wrong? Because I’ll never write a line as good as “I’m a street-walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm,” and neither will you. Proust wrote 14 volumes of bullshit and didn’t have a line that good, but he was handicapped by writing in French and not having the Asheton brothers in his band.

Look out, honey, cuz I’m using technology.


  1. pretty good, but my favorite has been from Zappa’s Camarillo Brillo:

    She stripped away
    Her rancid poncho
    An’ laid out naked by the door
    We did it till we were un-concho
    An’ it was useless any more

    guess it’s not a line, maybe
    a couplet?
    Pure Poetry!
