I completely agree with bighead. People who listen to pop music aren't stupid, no matter how much people believe them to be. I think their age is gonna kill it.
That said, it's a catchy enough song to be a minor hit anyway.
I really think they should have gone with a different angle lyrically. People are good at picking up on when bands are insincere, i.e., singing about stuff that's totally unrelatable to them. I know that Dexter doesn't like writing autobiographical lyrics, but still, wouldn't it be cool if it was a shout-out to the 80s-90s punk culture of Orange County in the style of a Katy Perry pop song? That would be awesome and it would actually be funny. Rap about fighting with skinheads, skateboarding, and vandalism at Huntington Beach! And yet, keep the style exactly the same! Sure, the lyrics wouldn't be relevant today and it might be less likely to be a hit, but I think a lot of people would have appreciated the sincerity and the irony of it. Shit, now I'm mad that they didn't do this. I mean, I guess there's a Ramones quote, sorta ("Hey, ho, let's go!") but as it is, it's basically a Katy Perry song by the Offspring.
