Recorded by Klaus Flouride for the 1998 "All Punk Rods!" compilation on Lookout! Records (LK193), this song was meant to demonstrate how little we cared about cars.


Certain Year’d Something

I've got a certain year’d something,
and i think its a Dodge yea.
It sits inert,
in my folks garage-uh.
It's got four tires, and a big beige steering wheel
The outside's gold, but the interior is teal!

(short beeps)

My old lady’s ultimatum
was to get any car.
An’ all my gearhead buddies said
“Solve it with Mopar!”
I’ll tell you what, I don’t think they’re being mean
I guess it takes more parts to solve anything

More parts to solve anything


Now the ol’ lady left,
it’s just me and the Swinger.
I got Mopar,
but less parts for dinner.
And though i may not be quite licensed to drive
It’s that Certain Year’d Something keeps the hope alive.

Certain Year’d Something keep hope alive.
