about

From the FuMP .com, 8/3/2007,

For those who are new to funny music, this is a history lesson. For those of you who have been fans of funny music for years, you now have a block-rocking anthem song to pump your fist to as you scream the refrain at the top of your lungs while you and your friends riot and burn down every Clear Channel and Entercom radio station in your city. The instigators of this La Resistance movement are Dr. Demento's hit-man, the great Luke Ski, and major nerdcore rap playa, MC Lars. Meet us at the hideout at 1300 hours. The password is 'BACONspiracy', which is the title of Luke Ski's new album containing this track, which was released today. Pick yours up at www.LukeSki.com. Also note the cameos by other such dementia revolutionaries like Devo Spice of Sudden Death, Chris Mezzolesta of Power Salad, Jared Ringold of Possible Oscar, Chris Waffle of Hot Waffles, Carrie Dahlby, and Dr. Pinkerton and Drumbot from the Consortium of Genius.

lyrics

Dementia Revolution
An original rap song by the great Luke Ski and MC Lars,
about the history of comedy music, and the current
underground nerdcore rap & dementia music scenes.
Lyrics by the great Luke Ski & MC Lars
© 2007 Luke Sienkowski & Lars Horris
(4 measure intro)
Verse 1:
MC LARS: Every generation's pop-culture defined,
LUKE SKI: And the audio they heard is what stuck in their mind.
MC LARS: Back in the old days, you'd hear the comedy tones
LUKE SKI: Of Stan Freberg,
MC LARS: Tom Lehrer,
LUKE SKI: Allan Sherman,
MC LARS: Spike Jones.
LUKE SKI: On your FM dial, a Flying Saucer attack
MC LARS: By a Purple People Eater and a Yakety Yak.
LUKE SKI: A Witch Doctor threw a Monster Mash every day.
MC LARS: So many novelty tunes, they'd come and take you away!
(LUKE SKI: (under last line:) Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha HA HAAAA!!!)
Chorus 1:
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! (Devo Spice: I've joined the "Dementia Revolution!")
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! (Power Salad: You've joined the Dementia Revolution!")
Verse 2:
MC LARS: In 1970, the radio, saw the birth of
LUKE SKI: "The Dr. Demento Show"!
MC LARS: Monty Python didn't care that Rocky Horror was gay,
LUKE SKI: Because he was a lumberjack, and he was okay.
MC LARS: Star Trekkin' with some Tribbles? Nope they ain't got none,
LUKE SKI: Cause they're really dead puppies, and they aren't much fun.
MC LARS: I saw streakin' Ray Stevens,
LUKE SKI: Showin' off his bum?!
MC LARS: More disgusting than fish heads!
LUKE SKI: Eat 'em up, yum!
MC LARS: When "Weird Al" Yankovic did his thing,
LUKE SKI: He became the all-time pop comedy king!
MC LARS: With parodies of Michael Jackson,
LUKE SKI: Queen, Madonna,
MC LARS: The Police, Cyndi Lauper,
LUKE SKI: REM, and Nirvana.
MC LARS: Julie Brown wasn't blonde, she had hair of red.
LUKE SKI: Made my heart beat harder than a boot to the head!
MC LARS: It was a golden age, and everyone had a ball!
LUKE SKI: Until grunge came along and had to ruin it all.
Chorus 2:
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! (Bud Sharpe: I've joined the "Dementia Revolution!")
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! (Power Salad: You've joined the Dementia Revolution!")
Verse 3:
MC LARS: Depression rock, like a cancerous tumor,
LUKE SKI: Killed all radio's sense of humor.
MC LARS: With FCC deregulations,
LUKE SKI: Soon corporations owned all the stations.
MC LARS: No more novelty tunes to be heard by you folks,
LUKE SKI: 'Cept Jeff Foxworthy tellin' Redneck jokes.
MC LARS: Or Adam Sandler listing off the whos-whos
LUKE SKI: in a holiday list of celebrity jews.
MC LARS: But Dr. D was still rockin' his stacks,
And playing new independent comedy acts.
LUKE SKI: Like the Four Postmen,
MC LARS: and the Arrogant Worms, Power Salad,
LUKE SKI: Sudden Death, and Throwing Toasters.
MC LARS: Then the great Luke Ski…
LUKE SKI: Hey, that's me!
MC LARS: Realized sci-fi cons were the place to be,
Cause the fans of funny filk would frequently rock
LUKE SKI: To the songs of Tom Smith and Ookla The Mok!
Chorus 3:
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! (Chris Waffle: I've joined the "Dementia Revolution?")
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! (Power Salad: You've joined the Dementia Revolution!")
Verse 4:
LUKE SKI: Lars, what's "nerdcore?"
MC LARS: I'm glad you asked! A hip-hop revolution happening fast!
LUKE SKI: A comedy rap type fusion thing?
MC LARS: A genre for nerds who can't really sing.
Part KRS-One, and part Chuck D,
LUKE SKI: Ah, part Rakim, and part Eric B?
MC LARS: Check MC Frontalot and mc chris,
LUKE SKI: Optimus Rhyme on the nerd-rap list!
MC LARS: MC Paul Barman, Beefy, YTCracker,
LUKE SKI: Dare to Stupid and bring some laughter!
MC LARS: Hip-hop's not dead, it's just too serious,
The underground's growing, and the labels are fearing this.
LUKE SKI: Novelty rap?!
MC LARS: Well maybe so, then why are all these kids here at our show?
LUKE SKI: Uh, love and theft?
MC LARS: Stealing like a Hobbit!
LUKE SKI: Ha! You can't stop it!
MC LARS: That's the hot topic!
LUKE SKI: Yeah!
Chorus 4:
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! (Power Salad: You've joined the Dementia Revolution!")
(Members of the Consortium Of Genius speak over Chorus 4:
Dr. Pinkerton: Are you ready?! Are you ready?!
Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?!
Drumbot: Well I've joined the "Dementia Revolution!"
Dr. Pinkerton: Drumbot! I didn't authorize you to enlist in this Revolution!
Drumbot: Hey relax Dr. Pinkerton, everyone's doing it!)
Verse 5:
LUKE SKI: Now we're all online, like an internet borg,
MC LARS: Streaming shows from Dementia Radio Dot Org
LUKE SKI: And the FuMP Dot Com, where it won't take long, for all you guys to
MC LARS: "Download This Song!"
LUKE SKI: Started by Rob Balder, the webcomics geek,
MC LARS: Like Jonathan Coulton with his Thing-A-Week.
LUKE SKI: Subscribe to PodCasts, cause they're all the bomb.
MC LARS: And of course there's
BOTH: Dr. Demento Dot Com!
LUKE SKI: Playin' Possible Oscar and Worm Quartet,
MC LARS: Weird Al's "White and Nerdy" was his biggest hit yet.
LUKE SKI: JB and KG of Tenacious D,
MC LARS: Want to pick the music of your destiny!
LUKE SKI: So if the Emo Krunk Idol rock on MTV
MC LARS: Makes you yearn for a different kind of MP3
LUKE SKI: Something out of the norm, let us make a suggestion,
MC LARS: By asking you the following question,
LUKE SKI: Are you?! -
MC LARS: Sick and tired of the music they play?
LUKE SKI: On the TV and the radio, every single day?
MC LARS: All that corporate schlock trying to make you a clone?
LUKE SKI: When all you want is funny music you can call your own?
MC LARS: All the stand-up and skits,
LUKE SKI: Parodies by the best?
MC LARS: Maximum hilarity,
LUKE SKI: All right at your request?
MC LARS: Does that fit you to a tee?
LUKE SKI: I got a question for you.
BOTH: Are you ready for your dream come true?
LUKE SKI: ARE YOU?!
Chorus 5, 6, & 7:
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! (Carrie Dahlby: I've joined the "Dementia Revolution!")
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! (Power Salad: You've joined the Dementia Revolution!")
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! (Luke Ski: I've joined the "Dementia Revolution!")
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! (Power Salad: You've joined the Dementia Revolution!")
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! ('Gilbert': I've joined the "Dementia Revolution!")
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! Ready for the Dementia Revolution?!
Are you ready?! Are you ready?! (Power Salad: You've joined the Dementia Revolution!")
