Post Pavement Indie Rock makes my blood boil.. I’ve been trying to articulate an argument as to why for years now…to say “it sucks” is not sufficient. The following song is a good starting point.

Can’t take it anymore!

If you meet the Buddha on the road,
Kill him!
If you meet the Buddha on the road,
Kill him!

Open day and night
Makes me want to puke
I’m looking for a fight
Maybe build a nuke

The look in your eyes
So fucking satisfied
The wine is delicious
Everything’s so precious

I can’t take it! I can’t take it! I can’t take it!
Can’t take it anymore!

If you meet the Buddha on the road,
Kill him!
If you meet the Buddha on the road
Kill him!
