Osaka Popstar - small album picOsaka Popstar and the American Legends of Punk are a band I can’t get enough of. Punk Rock that is cool, fun and of course… Rocks, is Osaka Popstar. I bought this self titled CD a while back at a flea market in Berks County, Pennsylvania… for around thirty three cents. Thirty three cents this Osaka Popstar cost me!!! Plus, as a Metal bonus, this CD was still factory sealed!!! How was this CD only thirty three cents you might wonder? The dealer I came across selling CD’s had a “three for a dollar deal” going down at his booth! Not too shabby and quite the find. So, with Autumn upon us, the insects are getting a tad crazy right now… especially those damn yellow jackets. I cannot stand yellow jackets, they either are buzzing around spoiled picnic food, outdoor garbage pails or looking to sting you. By definition alone, the yellow jacket is a predatory wasp!! I had one of these evil yellow jackets sting me in the right arm two weekends ago – for no reason at all. I was sitting down in my backyard, taking a break from some yard clean-up, sipping on a cold beer, then the burning sting sensation hit me! A yellow jacket chose me for it’s sting of the day. That is why I have decided once and for all, to choose Insects to be the Punk Rock song of the day. This song is just plain good Punk Rock fun. My daughters get the biggest kick out of listening to Insects… I do too. The way in which the bugs outside are acting up right now… Insects could very easily be the Punk Rock song of September!

OSAKA POPSTARINSECTS:

You better watch out or the insects will get you
You better watch out or the insects will get you

If you accidentally fall in the water, you’re in trouble
Spiders will come after you

You better watch out or the insects will get you
You better watch out or the insects will get you

Bees will sting you very hard, all over your body
Bugs are in the trees and they’re watching you

You better watch out or the insects will get you
You better watch out or the insects will get you

Black Widow, las pulgas, mosquito,………cucaracha

You better watch out or the insects will get you
You better watch out or the insects will get you

Flies will try to steal your food, we don’t like them, they’re disgusting
Get the bug spray fast ’cause they’re everywhere

You better watch out or the insects will get you
You better watch out or the insects will get you
you better watch out
you better watch out
you better watch out
you better watch out
you better watch out
