about

Don says:

The best and perhaps only New Year's Eve song since Auld Lang Syne.

lyrics

When we were born
On New Year’s Rockin’ Eve
The world was heard to say, “so what?”
So we gave the world some drugs
And a magic tambourine
We grew its beard
Removed its pants
And placed a yellow daisy up its butt

So what’s this crap they’re playing on our station?
“JUST ANOTHER GENERATION”?

Well, we were born
To see the end of time
We were chosen from the rest
Four hundred million years of “what’s up?” “Nothing much.”
Now we all seem to agree that we’re uniquely cursed
Or blessed.

The objects of eternal fascination
Not JUST ANOTHER GENERATION

So when you’re bored
And feeling pretty small
Don’t be The Boy Who Never Cried
“Wolf,” he never said.
And wolf, there never was.
Perhaps you’ve never heard of him
He never did some things, and then he died

Bequeathing his benumbed imagination
To JUST ANOTHER, Baby, JUST ANOTHER, Baby…
JUST ANOTHER GENERATION.

Oh, Look out: Here comes ANOTHER one!!!

about

The Shut-Ups Atlanta, Georgia

We're a five-piece new-wave power-pop band from Atlanta and Athens, GA and practice daily at 6AM. We do more before 8AM than most bands do all week.

We're not about Pleasure or Fun. You may enjoy listening to us. You may not. You may pretend to enjoy us because others you respect seem to. They may be pretending, too. In which case you may want to consider what else they're pretending about.
