Calibretto 13

Calibretto 13 (later, simply Calibretto) was a Christian folk punk band from Kokomo, Indiana, United States. The acoustic punk style of the band and the peculiar vocal style of singer Joe Whiteford gives the band their signature sound. Another signature mark of the band is themes in their lyrics, which often are about B-movies and problems in pop culture and Christianity. The band also incorporates a bit of influence from folk music. more »

Why can't I be on MTV?
Why can't I be on MTV?
Why can't I be on MTV?
'cause they just don't like me
Why can't I be on MTV?
Why can't I be on MTV?
Why can't I be on MTV?
'cause I'm trying to help you see
Coporate capitalistic pigs, all you ads are fake
Keep lying to the sheep out there
But I won't take the bait
Use Pepsi and Nike, oh and VH1
Calvin Klein and Tommy Jeans make it look so fun!
By using all of the popular bands
They're selling out for more money
When will all of this end?
Let's exploit sex and more through our videos...
Why can't we be on MTV?
Why can't we be on MTV?
Why can't we be on MTV?
'cause we won't lose integrity
What you like is popular 'cause you have all the dough
Turn the kids to zombies they don't care 'cause they don't know
Feed us lies and greed and garbage on the radio
There's better music out there but you don't want us to know!
So advertise through mainstream movies, show off your logo
Stick it to some dumb pop superstar that everybody knows
Totalitarian America that's just how it goes!
Why can't we be a part of your game?
Why can't we have your fortune and fame?
Why can't we all just be the same?
'cause we're not clones and we can think for ourselves
