    This from An Automated Response If You Will by sadly deceased punk band The Rise:

    "Shut down this assembly-line quality, coin-flipping, paper-scissors-rock mentality.
    You justify through cognitive dissonace, lost in the sound of machine-gun resonance."

    You go.

    Back with another one of those block-rocking beats.

    I have another one, from the same band, this time in the song Goals Methodology Assessment:

    "This is your social system, the unconsciousness of the commodity of form, a form of ideology.
    This is your social symptom, fantasy as a support of reality, objectivity of belief.

    You only die twice in this revolution, as repetition centers around these truths:
    Objective conditions, repetition of history, reflexive descriptions, the image and gaze form each other.

    Forget what you've been ingrained with.

    Names will be meaningless."

    Awesome :D

    Jennifer Lopez, a woman so conceited she likes to be known as J-Lo. :mad:

    I tried something similar and I ended up as S-Wil. Which isn't so street, but kind of works in the wilds of Gloucestershire.
    I've been implicated in 3 drive by muck spreadings, but the pigs ain't got nothing on me man.

    Don't be fooled by the norks that I got
    I'm still, I'm Jenny with a C***
    I don't sit to piddle, you see I'm standin' up
    There's something no-one knows about J-Lo...

    ^My eight year old cousin's version. GENIUS!

    I guess I could post any of Morrissey's lyrics, but that's why I love him so much.
