I think people tend to look for funny things in
music, and that's why the more serious Anvil songs get
Maybe they all see that the world is a sick, dirty
place. And maybe they all had enough of that.
So, instead of listening to a song like "No One to
Follow" - which I think is one of the best lyrics you
ever wrote -, people prefer banging their heads to
"Show Me Your Tits".
I get the same problem with my lyrics (I also have
a band). The ones I think are the best, more focused,
just get overlooked in favor of the funny rock'n'roll
anthems I also write.
That is to remind us that most people face music
just as another form of entertainment, nothing more,
