Lyrics: "S.C.O.O.T.E.R. infect ya!" Or, "Rough bad on the case, I wanna hit your face / Music that's the law, we're gonna rock the place." Or even -- my personal favorite -- "Rocking to the, rocking to the, rocking to the beat I, rocking to the rhythm of a groovy beat / Beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat." Music: carbonated dance jingles trying to cash in on all that hip "rave" culture. Think Casio beats, T2 keyboards, and fake crowd noises piped in at every break. Best song: "Fire." Like Pop Will Eat Itself at Nuremberg; an oddly catchy refrain of, "Back to the family, a guaranteed emergency, the radical MC HP's got the melody" is situated right next to a Motley Crue riff that growls like it's waiting for the school bell to ring. Conclusion: Messiah never sounded so good.
