    So very repetitive. I like the music, but the lyrics? It's like he ran out of ideas.

    This song is best when it's about a fridge and sung by Weird Al. Al at least removed the pompous, saying absolutely nothing at all "social commentary" and cut the song down to three minutes instead of the ridiculously unwarranted six.

    Something wrong with the world TODAY, not then, in 90's. [4] If in the 90's was good, then i rather neither spoken in 70's and 80's...[2] 70s were the best years in music: Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Whitesnake, Bad Company and many more...
