Pinhead Gunpowder

Pinhead Gunpowder is an American punk rock band formed East Bay, California, in 1990. The band has consisted of Aaron Cometbus (drums, lyrics), Bill Schneider (bass), Billie Joe Armstrong (guitar, vocals) and Jason White (guitar, vocals) for the majority of its existence. Mike Kirsch (guitar, vocals) was the original guitarist, in place of White, but left the band citing personal differences with Green Day (the band for which Billie Joe Armstrong and Jason White are most famous) and their major label debut album Dookie (1994). The band's name comes from a brand of "high octane" green tea served at the Arcata co-op and discovered serendipitously by Aaron Cometbus during one of his many dumpster diving adventures. more »

Home of the braves, land of the free,
Where "freedom of choice" just means coke or Pepsi...
But I'm not buying it.

They say if you're not working
You're just wasting away,
"Employment gaps look bad on your resume"...
But I'm not buying, I'm not buying,
I'm not buying their incentives, their lies,
Their empty promises -- just chains in disguise
-- while we let them steal away our very lives!

Tell me why there's still a 40 hour work week
While unemployment's on the rise?
Why do we keep overproducing
But still it's hard just to survive?
Why does "surplus" food rot
While hungry people die??

We're stripped of human dignity,
Forced to live in poverty,
'cause in this land of the free
Our "freedom" is all fake.
We're wage slaves to the company,
Land slaves to the property,
And tax slaves to the economy
Of the capitalist state!

It's illegal to squat or live on the street,
But rent is extortion when you have to pay to sleep...
But I'm not buying it. ..

We're just endentured servants
Living on the master's land,
Serfs trying to buy back
Our freedom on the lay-away plan...
But I'm not buying, I'm not buying, I'm not buying
