COVIS and its after-effects are going to last a long, long time. and people will be nostalgically listening to these lockdown songs for years to come.

i mean, i still get nostalgic for some good ol' 9/11 W. iraq bullshit from time to time. that's what anti-flag is for.

I'll always have to live with rhyming "lockdown" with "knocked down" and "the food truck downtown"

"lockdown too short to last long"

Now that I'm listening to it on Spotify, I'm getting the similarity with Pennywise, I think it's in how the song is sung by Mark. Instrumentally it sounds like NOFX (2000-2003 era) to me. 

Instrumentally it sounds the most like Pennywise to me (something I never ever thought I would say lol).  Because of the drums. Their drummer goes balls to the wall with the toms like Travis is doing here. It definitely sounds like NOFX and Pennywise though!

if you nix every single they've ever released, some of the deep cuts are pretty baller. and both ignition and smash are 85% great.

i agree that dexter, personally, is annoying. but also versatile. the guy's a scientist, he flies planes, he sells hot sauce.

Yea he’s definitely no slouch

I think music would be very boring if ALL the songs were about generic stuffs and never got into specifics, referring to events that were happening when they were written.

I recently noticed how young people and young bands (mostly hardcore bands) are already looking back with nostalgia at the NuMetal music and style from the early 2000s, when, at the time, most of it was considered crap. 

Edit: and by the way Davey, you won 🎉 because you're the one who got closer with the rhyme. You said 19 and Mark said 2019.

all art gets reappraised on a twenty to twenty-five year cycle. just wait for "that 90s show" that is a seinfeld send-up.

also, consider this. we are as far from seinfeld's first season as marty was from the 50s in back to the future. or against the grain, for that matter.

Here are the official lyrics:

I guess I'm blessed to be so fucking bored
And hiding from this phantom antigen
That wants to send us to the morgue

Quarantine, fuck this disease
I'd rather be on Star Tours or stuck at the DMV
Quarantine, no, not for me
I thought that things were fucked up in 2019
Fuck quarantine

Some people hit the bottle, some people hit the books
Some people storm The Capitol, some second guess parenthood

It'll disappear in April, just like a miracle
We don't need social distance, we don't need old people
So throw the shop doors open and save our economy
We don't need ICU beds or PPE

Quarantine, fuck this disease
I'd rather watch some magic or do press in Germany
Quarantine, no, not for me
I thought that things were fucked up in 2019
Fuck quarantine

It'll disappear in April, just like a miracle
We don't need social distance, we don't need old people
So throw the shop doors open, save our economy
We don't need ICU beds, we don't need PPE

Quarantine, fuck this disease
I'm never shaking hands again and don't kiss me on the cheek
Fuck quarantine

I do like those lyrics though.

I still think it’s corny to an extent but I rather see Mark genuinely pissed off about something then have some impersonal lyrics written with a co-writer.

Honestly, that's better than I expected from him. I actually want to give it a spin now.
