Seether – Sympathetic (album: Disclaimer I 2002)

This next song is by Seether, the lyrics of this song are just wonderful and full of meaning. The lead singer Shaun Morgan has a fantastic voice, he sounds even better on live performance and you can check it out in the live unplugged video that I’ve added.

Band’s official website: Seether

The meaning of the lead singer & bassist tatts:
The lead singer has a tattoo of a uterus so he’ll always remember where he came from and he won’t become an egotistical rock dick....check out this video.

Spiderbait – Jellybean drifter (Grand Slam 1999)

This song is a pure alternative rock song by the Aussie band Spiderbait!!! I can listen to it over and over again.
It is sung by the drummer named Mark Maher aka Kram. The way he rolls the words on his tongue is just unbelievable. I’ve tried singing it myself and it came out completely wrong!!! Check this out....
I’ve searched for the video clip of this song on YouTube all I could find is the following message:
“This video contains content from UMG. It is not available in your country”
Don’t really know what it means, anyway here is a link to the song:

Lyrics: Them Bones Lyrics

And now for the misheard lyrics version...

Band’s official website: Alice In Chains

What’s this song about?
This song was written by guitarist Jerry Cantrell, he was quoted saying the following:
“I was just thinking about mortality, that one of these days we'll end up a pile of bones. It's a thought for every human being, whether you believe in an after-life or that when we die, that's it. The thought that all the beautiful things and knowledge and experiences you've been through just end when you end scares me, the thought that when you close your eyes for good, it's gone forever” (Wikipedia – Them Bones)
