Refused Lyrics


Just like the political theorists and philosophers
(Baudrillard, Foucault, Derrida, Debord and so on) we also
managed with a sort of self fulfilling prophecy. A
manifestation of an idea to a concrete action. When
Quilapayuns in 1972 realized the importance of widening
their spectrum of action by dividing the band into five
different sections to be able to spread their ideas on as
many locations and to as many people as possible they had
realized the principle of collective massorganization. A
division into five new directions means More...

Review about Refused songs
what | Reviewer: Guy Debord
    ------ About the song New Noise performed by Refused

The lyrics on this songs are a mashup of situationist philosophy of art (which the singer has said he's into) and punk (whose art was designed by situationist influence)

they critique art as institution alienated from artists, making everyone into a spectator. you have to pay to be an actor, because the scene isnt yours. new noise for real people means a break with mass culture and making our own underground forms of appreciating art that cannot be recuperated (another situationist term)by capitalism

thats just my opinion though, but i encorage anyone interested in it to look it up, namely revolution of everyday life by vaneigem or society of the spectacle by debord. theres actually another song on this album called derivé, which is a situationist concept created by guy debord about walking the city, or experimenting modern art "as is". pretty cool imo

    ------ About the song New Noise performed by Refused

Love this song! It's used by the "Axman" (John Axford), Milwaukee Brewers closing pitcher. Whenever it's played and he comes out of the bullpen, the frikin' house EXPLODES and the stadium starts shaking. Great song for getting pumped.

    ------ About the song New Noise performed by Refused

I just watched the movie crank again, it was on t.v. and this song came on! It took me back when I used to rock out w/ friends to this song,etc music. I should have known it was Refused, but 1st thought was Reveille. Still a badazz song/group

The real meaning | Reviewer: Riley
    ------ About the song New Noise performed by Refused

Actually this track was designed to be a mission statement for the band. It deals with how their progressive lyricism simply didn't belong in punk music anymore.

The music had been coopted by this point to be utilised by lame pop bands singing vague song about love and drinking beer. As such, there was a need to forge a new musical direction

"How can we expect anyone to listen
If we're using the same old voice?
We need new noise"

not to work out too? | Reviewer: zach
    ------ About the song New Noise performed by Refused

This is one hell of a song, the meaning and just the adrennaline rush you get from hearing it. Oh and for all you liberal/hippie sounding people saying it wasn't meant to pump you up, why the hell would they allow it to be played in Friday Night Lights when Dallas Carter and Permian are coming out at the end? They cant just put it in the movie without their consent, and if they didn't want to be remembered for this being a song to pump people up they wouldn't have let them put it in that particular movie.

end of the song is thank you peace, and instead of about half of those new beats, its thank you ____ sounds like pete but its not. and just to quell this arguement.. its a great song with lots of political and self indulged meanings but its just too pumpin not to work out too

Lol | Reviewer: Jonas Friis-Jeppesen
    ------ About the song New Noise performed by Refused

Lol, whatever this song means, it can be used as workout- or skating- or whatever-song.
What you say is, because some song has a deep, special meaning, it can't be used for lifting weights? That's ridicolous!

Great song by the way

    ------ About the song New Noise performed by Refused

Awesome song! Not their best, but probably the most popular.

After the line "If we can afford the luxury of turning our heads Lyxzen says "If we can if we can if we can!"

Also missed out the "Hey!" after "when the day is over", but good other than that :P
