When the Schumer Hits the Fan – The Circle Jerks

Back when I was young, I never took a liking to the saccharine sweet pop music or the just as useless hair bands of the era. I liked to think of myself as thinking a couple layers deeper than most of my teen counterparts.

This led to the discovery of many punk bands such as the Circle Jerks, Minor Threat, Black Flag, The Vandals, etc., and their social commentary often seen from the “working mans” point of view. I am sad to say that this sort of music’s equivalent now days is just a tool of the socialist movement essentially making it a neutered lapdog to the Left.

But, here’s a blast from the past when punk thought for itself and belonged to no one. It could almost be the theme song for America right now, even though it is from almost three decades ago. Pardon the “French” though… perhaps someone could remake it as “When the Schumer Hits the Fan.” Hey, I got an idea 🙂

Lyrics:

in a sluggish economy
inflation,recession
hits the land of the free
standing in unemployment lines
blame the government for hard time

we just get by
however we can
we all gotta duck
when the shit hits the fan

10 kids in a cadillac
stand in lines for welfare checks
let’s all leach off the state
gee!the money’s really great!

soup lines
free loaves of bread
5lb blocks of cheese
bags of groceries
social security
has run out on you and me
we do whatever we can
gotta duck when the shit hits the fan
