10/31/93 - A fragment from my pre-accordion would-be-punk days, part of the one-man show “Laundry Night.” Date is approximate.

Alternative’s a target market group now group now
Homogenized and packaged till you puke now puke now
A format on the radio a look sold off the rack
What we really need is an alternative to that!

Every generation the voices of rebellion
Are soon appropriated by the folk who do the sellin
A format on the radio a look sold on T.V.
I’m tired of being a target don’t you market to me
I’m more than just a market baby don’t target me!
