So it's probably old news but I think Shazam is the best iphone app in the world. Thanks to Shazam I was able to find this little gem today:
Ok, so yeah this song is a little creepy. When Pearl Jam came out with "Jeremy" the video was pretty intense. Jeremy was inspired by a true story of a teenage boy who killed himself in front of his classmates by shooting himself in the mouth. I always thought that in the video, Jeremy killed his whole class because they never showed him dead, just a lot of blood. But that was due to some rules on MTV where apparently, they can't show kids shooting themselves in the mouth. Only now, as I googled "Jeremy Pearl Jam" did I read an article by the director who explained the final scene and pool of blood. Anyhoot, this song broaches a similar topic. Kid & guns = bad times. Jeremy came at the right time, the idea of kids and guns was scary and so the song was a little scary. Now we're so used to it, we're able to make catchy surfer songs about it. I remember in school they'd say things like "Guns don't kill people, people do". Kids kill people too (and themselves). Sad sad sad. But this song makes me happy. Yay me.
