Monster Magnet Lyrics. You know you're quite a hot topic You gotta nothin' in your head You got your ass in the back seat We all agree you're over fed. You're from the suck generation Like a doggie with a bone You like your lame fuckin' music You love talkin' on your phone. You're stone monolithic I smell it on your breath You gotta 'bout nothin' to say Keep spending all your money And love yourself to death 'Till daddy takes your T-Bird away.
So it goes with Monolithic Baby!, which marks a couple of superficial transitions for Monster Magnet - off a major and back to an indie; new rhythm section (Jim Baglino on bass and Bob Pantella on drums) - but still upholds Wyndorf's highly entertaining mass of contradictions and vices. Simultaneously whip-smart and cementhead-stupid, smirking and sincere, he can challenge your intellect with an inspired arrangement or pseudo-political left-field lyric, then bash you over the head with a fat, greasy guitar riff; such is his genius.
Not that Monolithic Baby! is short of laughs. The ludicrous, po-faced blasphemy of On the Verge is beyond parody with its "Take me Jesus, take me harder, rape me in your womb" chorus, while Unbroken (Hotel Baby)'s pseudo-misogynistic tale of groupie lovin' tries so hard it almost works. The band continue their lifelong Black Sabbath obsession with a few killer riffs on Supercruel and Monolithic, but betray their roots with what sounds suspiciously like a drum machine on the über-cheesy Master of Light. Where is the punchline? Topics.
