   M.T.V. - GET OFF THE AIR  by Dead Kennedys
   ------------------------
   (Biafra)
 
Intro:  F#    B  C#  (2x bass only)
 
F#                 B      C#
Fun Fun Fun in the fluffy chair
      F#
Flame up the herb
     B        C# 
Woof down the beer  (2x and continues on background)
 
 
(click!)
 
F#                 B  C#
Hi! I'm your video DJ
  F#                   B             C#
I always talk like I'm wigged out on quaaludes
F#             B        C#                  F#   B  C#
I wear a satin baseball jacket everywhere I go
 
   F#        B        C#
My job is to help destroy
       F#            B   C#
What's left of your imagination
   F#          B       C#
By feeding you endless doses
   F#                    B       C#
Of sugar-coated mindless garbage
 
   F#           B    C#
So don't create Be sedate
     F#                    B              C#
Be a vegetable at home And thwack on that dial
   F#                   B          C#
If we have our way even you will believe  (Fun fun fun... ends)
F#
This is the future of rock and roll
 
(M.T.V GET OFF THE AIR!)
 
    F#              B A
How far will you go
    F#                 B A
How low will you stoop
   B               A               B            A
To tranquilize our minds with your sugar-coated swill
 
       F#                             B A
You've turned rock and roll rebellion
     F#                 B A
Into Pat Boone sedation
B           A              B           D
Making sure nothing's left of the imagination
 
   C#     B
   M.T.V. Get off the
   C#     B
   M.T.V. Get off the
   C#     B           F#
   M.T.V. Get off the air  (2x)
 
          E           F#
          Get off the air
 
F#                     B A F#                   B A
See the latest rejects     from the muppet show
B                        A
Wag their tits and their dicks
        B            A
As they lip-synch on screen
 
        F#
There's something I don't like
 B    A F#                     B A
About a band who always smiles
  B         A
Another tax write-off
         B                   D
For some schmuck who doesn't care
 
  M.T.V. Get off the air...
 
         Get off the air 
         Get off the air 
                     F# F E D# C#
         Get off the air 
 
 
(bass break - following line twice: 1st time with bass only, 2nd time with
 guitar playing chords above)
 
 
  C#       B        C#       B        F#       E        F#       E

C#m  B  A  G#   (2x trumpet or something)
 
    C#    B
And so it was
    C#                B
Our beloved corporate gods
F#             E          F#    E
Claimed they created rock video
C#             B              C#       B
Allowing it to sink as low in one year
   F#         E         C#
As commercial TV has in 25
 
C#m                      B
"It's the new frontier," they say
     A                       G#
It's wide open, anything can happen
    C#m
But you've got a lot of nerve
            B
To call yourself a pioneer
                A
When you're too god-damn conservative
        G#
To take real chances.
 
C#        B 
Tin-eared   
      C#    B         F#
Graph-paper brained accountants
E                F#   E
Instead of music fans
C#           B              C#               B
Call all the shots at giant record companies now
    F#              E         C#
The lowest common denominator rules
 
C#m
Forget honesty
B
Forget creativity
    A
The dumbest buy the mostest
           G#
That's the name of the game
 
    C#m
But sales are slumping
    B
And no one will say why
A                                     G#
Could it be they put out one too many lousy records?!?
 
C#       B           F#
M.T.V. - Get off the air!
 
F#
NOW!

Some chords may be missing in the fast part and the bass line probably
isn't very accurate. At least it's played higher, I think. Corrections
are naturally welcome.
