    This is another '80s song about how that generation of kids were so misunderstood. Told what to wear, how to look, what to say. This song is about fighting that; go wild and do what you want. This song reminds me of the late '60s a lot, not with the sound but with the lyrics. Like the whole Helter Skelter time period; take back your life period. This generation, the late '80s, were the "problem child," they were considered punks because they fought a lot of the congressional thinking. Them, and the '60s kids, are the reason our generation can act the way we do. Why we can stand up to teachers and our parents without getting beaten. Why we can fight for what we think is right with less consequence. They broke that barrier for us, and how do we repay them? By not giving a damn about any of it.
