I hope the Starship and the writers of We Built this City are paying attention

You can bet your dollars that the GOPers will play that song next week and my money would be on them not paying for the rights to play it.

That is what they do!

Songwriters: PAGE, MARTIN GEORGE / TAUPIN, BERNIE / LAMBERT, DENNIS / WOLF, PETER F.Chorus:
We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Say you don't know me or recognize my face
Say you don't care who goes to that kind of place
Knee deep in the hoopla sinking in your fight
Too many runaways eating up the night

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember
We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Chorus:
We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

Someone always playing corporation games
Who cares they're always changing corporation names
We just want to dance here someone stole the stage
They call us irresponsible write us off the page

1. That might be the worst song ever written.

 

If they actually played it at the RNC, it would prove, once and for all, what a bunch of brainless dorks they actually are! Starship and the writers SHOULD allow them to play it, because it is a total embarrassment.

2. +1

Atrocious song from an awful sequel band. Without Kaukonen and Cassidy the Airplane was grounded.

3. If the GOP wants to go knee deep in the hoopla, then by all means, let them.

We just want to dance here, after all.

4. Hmmmmm....

Yeah, it's a terrible song, but the image of Grace Slick going off on a bunch of Republicans warms my heart! She could do it too... she'd put them ALL in their place!

5. The GOP will play whatever song they want, then deal with the

aftermath with a pithy apology (after they've been told never to play a certain song again). By then it's too late to do anything; the 'musical moment' they wanted is over. They've done this many times.
