LOLOLOL @ Crude, Rude Anon | Reviewer: Lele | 7/10/10
Thank God there are people like Beck etc. who can laugh at themselves and others and not take life so seriously. They counter-balance freaks like this dude. Seriously. WHAT?! You read all that into THIS song? Tv commercials must really drive you up a tree.
what an idiot... | Reviewer: Bridie | 6/25/10
ok i think some poeple are misinterpreting the song a wee bit, if you really want to know the meaning of the song it is ~Intense drum roll~ NOTHING! ~shock horror!~ dude this song is just complete gibberish. no hidden meaning driving you into a cult, sorry to be bursting your bubble.
ok | Reviewer: tonks | 6/4/10
crude rude ?
Ok whom ever posted that big long explanation of what this song is about is a nut. Seems to me you come from a poor background (as do I) and you are touchy almost paranoid about it. Get over it. This song is nonsense and fun. The whole thing about the termite is funny cause what kind of a termite chokes on wood? Thats it!!! no hidden huge meanings no social terms to fall on, just silly fun. I swear its the people so so serious about everything that ruin most stuff!!!!!!!!!

There is actually no real meaning whatsoever in this song. In the early 90's he was in his studio playing slide guitar and he decided to try and freestyle rap. He thought it sounded dumb but his producer thought it was cool and so they turned it into a song. Its just a bunch of gibberish.
over interpretation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/11/09
Someone is interpreting this song way too deeply and is looking for something that he WANTS to find there. It's these kind of people that find inuendo in Neruda's Ode to an Artichoke.
back to the song ... i think it's a much more light-hearted version of Nirvana's Dumb. I mean, Beck clearly sees the lighter side of how much of a loser he is. Is he making fun of trailer trash? maybe, i do on a regular basis so why shouldn't he be allowed?
imho "And my time is a piece of wax fallin’ on a termite/who's chokin’ on the splinters" are key lines in the song. the termite represents him, and it's choking on splinters, basically it's terrible at what it's here for, it sucks at being a termite. that goes back to being a loser, failing at life.
Crude, Rude Parody | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/3/09
I dont know ppl.. being that he's a fascist scientologist who believes in eugenics (and dont tell me i dont know what im sayin, ive been there).. yes! the lyrics are genious, as with the music, and the placement of the composition as a who piece. Morally though, it's pretty f'ed up, parodizing the poor- if he was comin from there fine, if he was using it as a political representation than cool- but this is not that. The song could still be humorous and abstract while holding honest meaning & a sort of empathy. Instead of doing that, he makes it into a sarcastic/sardonic portrait of the 'humor' of lower class living- its not the humor thats sinister, its the mocking sense the lyrics give. When I was younger I loved the meaningless lyrics, though they all have meaning despite being abstract. Here're some examples of the intentional mocking coming from a fascist prospective in this song: "dogfood stalls with the beefcake pantyhose"- implying that the lowrclass have steriotypical dirty sex. "Stock car flamin' with a loser and the cruise control" flamin- as in outrageously over-the-top with... well, the cruise control implies a trucker as the loser as made know with the cruise control part; im starting to wonder why he has a loathing for truckers. The song parallels to "Truck Driving Neighbors" here, the song he also calls "Yellow Sweat." And I dont give a sh-t that this isnt offensive to some ppl, if he called you yellow sweat how much would you like that? "Gotta a couple of couches, sleep on the love seat" mocks how the lowerclass often are without furniture, and implies that they are sexually umappealing. "You get a parking violation-" so ppl living in the city dont always have driveways and have to find a spot to parallel park, yeah, okaaay.. what of it? "So shave your face with some mace in the dark" paradizes not having electricity, and the idea that poor men have no value for themselves in their own eyes or value to anyone else for that matter. "Ban all the music with a phony gas chamber" a direct reference to eugenics- if you dont know what that is maybe it time you look it up. "A slab of turkey neck and it's hangin from a pidgeon wing" so having to scrape up your meals is now something to laugh at apparently. "You cant write if you cant relate"- oh really Beck? Look whose talking. "Trade the cash for the beef for the body for the hate," making it seem like a pointless cycle to keep yourself alive if you are homeless or on the verge. So someone scrapes up some cash and buys some food, which goes to their body, keeping them alive to offer their 'hate.' "And my time..." a restatement of how pointless it is for the so-called weak to stay alive. Yeah, I guess the song kinda does remind me of Bob Dylan because Im thinkin that it might be educational for Beck to listen to Dylan's "Rolling Stone." ..or even "Hurricane." Okay now, go ahead and get mad if you want, when you kids go and join the cult if you ever come back I wont be saying I told you so. I dont need to prove myself, just gotta give a shout out to those being descriminated against in this sick and twisted song.
smack in the mouth, shut it all the way | Reviewer: jo | 7/6/09

BECK=AWESOME. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/11/09
Beck is one of my favorite songwriters, and if you got a problem shut up and take in the awesome lyrics. His style of songwriting is simply to portray irony and random points he feels like writing about.

FYI | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/25/08
If you actually listen to the one verse in reverse "?em llik uoy t'nod yhw os ,ybab resol a m'I adanaC revo raoS" It doesn't say what is written here. It's just the chorus. He singsSoy un perdedor I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me?
Loser | Reviewer: slip | 9/3/08
Becks lyrics are supposed to give you impressions instead of being literal. He uses words that have abstract connotations to make you feel a certain way. For me this song brings to mind trash can fires and lousy cars, and how cool those things are.
Super goofy | Reviewer: the little panda | 4/2/08
hey, this guy must do a lot of acid and meth and cocaine and huff glue and cut himself to dump alcohol directly into his veins and heroin and opium and cigarrets dipped in caugh medicine and do all of it at the same millisecond or 2.
cociane is a hell of a drug.
funny | Reviewer: jesuszilla | 3/13/08
Beck's melody is always awesome, and his lyrics usually are; but a lot of the lyrics are pulled out of thin air just to rhyme I swear. It's hilarious though. My favorite band did it(Smashing Pumpkins); that song 1979 really doesnt have to do with that specific year he just picked it cause it rhymed.
beck | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/7/08
yo. everyone. cut it out. beck is not trying to convey any deeper meaning by this song. have you heard any of his other songs? mtv makes me wanna smoke crack? satan gave me a taco?? this guy is the shit, and just writes incredible lyrics because he feels like it.
The Greatest | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/14/08
This is one of the most awesome-ass songs i've ever heard. Love it love it love it.... love beck he's the shit and maybe it's just me noticing this but WHY DOES EVERY FUCKING PERSON OUT THERE ALWAYS ASSUME THINGS ARE ABOUT SUICIDES AND HURTING THEMSELVES? People aren't all into that kinda shit...
