SWL #12: Wimps, "Stop Having Fun"
Wimps don't necessarily write songs for the punk or alternative youth, in my opinion. This song, which features the yelling break "Everyone! Stop Having! Stop Having! Fun Right Now!", is made for those of us who have grown up, gotten "adult" jobs, and find ourselves thinking those things we swore we never would, like "Pull your pants up! I can see your underwear!", etc. Of course the song is tongue-in-cheek. That's what makes it fun (despite the demand to stop having said fun). Hand on my hip, finger wagging, I quote the line from the song "It's that time of the month for you to shut up!" whenever I'm feeling silly.
