The 98 is an upbeat punk rock song with a double time switch up.

Lyrics
I stayed up all night drinking the black brew
There's a big test tomorrow in calc two
I'll be feeling much better if things went my way
and without my money wasting away
if I can bring home a 98

and I know it it makes me so pathetic
that I need to bathe in antiseptic
but if you were me and all your life
your whole damn body was covered in hives
maybe you could score a 99

the biggest nerd reputation is at stake
I am pushing myself to get the best grade
I'm feeling much better I'm happy to say
by breaking the curve and wrecking the scale
now that I got 98

and I know it makes me sound pathetic
when I only want white bread and lettuce
but if you were me and all your life
you had no guts, or friends you liked
maybe your SAT would be like mine

I have the courage to ask my best friend
if she finally wants to commit and become my girlfriend
I think she's impressed that I get all A's
and that my life is not partied away
since I scored 98.

and I know it makes me sound psychotic
I make her take antibiotics
but if you were me and held her hand
that touched the rides at Disneyland
maybe you wouldn't think I am insane

I formed a clan on world of warcraft
to make new friends the plan was so daft
I've racked up twenty thousand kills
and even honed my people skills
maybe you could fight my 59

I know it makes me so pathetic
I have no life except a gimmick
I pretend to be some one I'm not
This life sucks it's all I've got
Maybe I can trade this 99

Double-time on chorus
is cool each time in comes along. And I like the synth lead--it was a little unexpected.

I can't tell--is this song anti-nerd or pro-nerd? Or both? (I'm not sure I can personally support the anti-nerd movement, out of self-preservation, although I respect your right to an opinion:))
Check out my latest song called Till the Tap Runs Dry (album version)

:)
This song was inspired by what I like and hate about myself, so I guess you are right, it's both.

I think you bring up a good point: let's say it is pro-geek, anti-nerd. Thanks for listening!

the black brew
yeigermeister? great chorus, great synth break, great drop out with just the bass at the end. Cool mature punk, meaning you sound more like the vandals than green day, high praise.

Thanks Tempie
I'm a Parry Gripp wannabe. I also love The Queers and Screeching Weasel.

cool
great sounding guitars and vocals, drumming impressive.
lyrics are funny, particularly the "rides at disneyland" part. antiseptic hand wipes might be more effective though.
agree that the synthesizer part really jumps out, in a good way.
enjoyed!
