#SLS ~ Martian Masters?

Thanks to Jim Adams, for hosting Song Lyric Sunday. Ben still isn’t sleeping well and so neither am I. He’s on break from school now until the 29th. When he goes back he will officially be in NINTH GRADE (mind blown). Puberty and Autism make for an interesting life, but that’s for another post. This post is about Music, so let’s get on with it, shall we?!

The prompt words this week are – Pets, Names, Memories

Going with an earworm that sneaks up on me and hangs out often. From their 1993 self-titled album, I give you Pets, by Porno For Pyros. The band name is in reference to the looting and burning during the L.A. riots. The song was actually #1 on Billboard’s Modern Rock chart in the U.S.

Copy Pasta straight from wiki we have: Porno for Pyros is an American alternative rock band formed in Los Angeles,  California, United States in 1992, following the break-up of Jane’s Addiction. The band comprised former Jane’s Addiction members Perry Farrell (vocals) and Stephen Perkins (drums), as well as Peter DiStefano (guitar) and Martyn LeNoble (bass), until LeNoble was replaced by Mike Watt during the recording of 1996’s Good God’s Urge.

Porno For Pyros only released the two albums, then Jane’s Addiction got back together.

Children are innocent, yeah
Teenagers fucked up in the head
Adults are even more fucked up
And elderlies are like children

Will there be another race
To come along and take over for us?
Maybe Martians could do
Better than we’ve done

We’ll make great pets (×8)

My friend says we’re like the dinosaurs
Only we are doing ourselves in
Much faster than they ever did

We’ll make great pets (×8)

We will make great pets
We’ll make great pets
We’ll make great pets
We’ll make great pets
We will make great pets
We’ll make great pets
We’ll make great pets
We’ll make great pets

I saw Jane’s Addiction in the early 2000s. The tickets were free, so I went. I like them but I’m not a super fan. What song would you choose for this prompt? Are you a Jane’s Addiction fan? Thanks for stopping by!

HUGS!
