New California theme song

New California theme song

June 25, 2012

By John Seiler

In a column, George Will waxes nostalgic about the Golden State of the 1960s, whose theme song was the Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations.”

We’re long past that and need a new theme song for the rapidly decomposing Pyrite State. Here it is, from another great California band, Metallica. Turn up the volume.

    Wow John, that is not what I would have chosen, but heck “Let it be written, let it be done.”

    I would have gone with AC/DC Shook me all night long, only because when we finish destroying the RAGWUS we will once again be the best state around. 🙂

    This could be the only instance in history of synchronicity between George Will and Metallica.

    Not a big Metallica fan (does that make me a bigger square than Seiler?) but the title of this head cracking tune does fit the sorry state of the state.

    Donkey: AC/DC is from Down Under. Metallica is from Calif.

    What is RAGWUS?

    Saw AC/DC on ther firt American Tour in 1978, opening band (of 5 bands) at Day on the Green.

    AC/DC, Van Halen, Pat Travers, Foreigner and Aerosmith………little did we know then AC/DC and Van Halen would become super groups like Aerosmith………

    I would have chosen AC/DC Highway to Hell.

    Rizzo is Wonder’s hero. City of Bell boss with high salary and benefits. Google this endearing chap!

    What is wrong with honest hard working migrants toiling at fast food joints? The elitism of cubicle worker’s vile posts leaves one breathless!

    Oh yes, that dedicated public servant.

    I don’t live in Southern Colliefornia so Rizzo didn’t get the coverage where I live as you people saw.

    Most public servants are great people. Only a few posters on this site demean them. They are tolerated as “evovling”, an excruciating slow process for most of us. Encourage them to tolerate diversity, fairness and living in harmony.

    Another great song for California and specifically the boondoggle High Speed Rail to Nowhere, is the old Blue Oyster Cult song “Hot Rails to Hell.” Maybe Eric Bloom and Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser could tweak the lyrics a wee bit for us in California. Meanwhile enjoy it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0naTTRXIvU

    Before I forget–Blue Oyster Cult is from the Big Apple–maybe a good first runner-up to Metallica!

    Bob, Robert Rizzo was a big fat RAGWUS crook, along with his Chief of police, tried to steal every bit he could fron the hard working people of Bell, half of which could not even speak English.

    Eric, I would like to see the words of the BTO song “Taking Care of Business” changed to, Stuffing all our pockets, With government pay, Stuffing all our pockets everyday!” 😉
