Nova música do Red Hot Chili Peppers cita de Judas Priest a Taco Bell; veja referências

“Poster Child” faz referências a diversos artistas e bandas de rock e outros gêneros, bem como a personalidades do cinema e televisão

Liberada pelo Red Hot Chili Peppers nesta sexta-feira (4), a música “Poster Child” transporta o ouvinte para a época em que os músicos da banda se tornaram fãs, com suas primeiras experiências. A letra conta com várias citações a ícones da música dos anos 1970 e 80. Do lado do rock pesado e suas várias ramificações, há menções a Led Zeppelin, Motörhead, Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, MC5, Ramones e The Clash.

Também há referências a figuras do pré e pós-punk, como Richard Hell (Television, Johnny Thunder & The Heartbreakers), Billy Idol e Adam Ant. O funk e o hip-hop, outras influências na sonoridade do grupo, também não ficam de fora, com Flavor Flav (Public Enemy), Melle Mel (Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five) e Parliament. Outros nomes históricos da música são Steve Miller, Duran Duran, Van Morrison e Yoko Ono.

Ainda há espaço amplo para outras referências culturais, como cinema e televisão (Chico And The Man, Bernie Mac, Caddyshack), políticos (Ulysses Grant), o estúdio Record Plant e a rede de fast-food Taco Bell.

Confira a letra completa e viaje com os Chili Peppers:

“Melle Mel and Richard Hell were dancing at the Taco Bell
When someone heard a rebel yell, I think it was an infidel
Adam Ant and Robert Plant were center of a sycophant
Used to buy Ulysses Grant to record at the Record Plant
Islamabad is on the nod, Havana at the riot squad
And if you want to be a Mod, you’ll have to meet me at the quad

You got the best of my loco
I’ll take the rest of your showboat
You got the best of my Yoko
I’ll take the rest of your low notе

Parliament’s Atomic Dog that’s what’s filling up
Talk about the life and dеath of living
The seventies were such a win, singing the Led Zeppelin
Lizzy lookin’ mighty thin, the Thompson’s had another twin
I thought I won the lottery
The numbers never thought of me
Ramones had a lobotomy, so spin me like a pottery

I will be your poster child
You know the world is ours for a little while
And then I will be your poster child tonight, oh

A pocket piece, a Sandinista, me and a Mona Lisa
Judas Priest, was meant to be
So bubble gum, a cup of soup, dirty dandy nanda loop
Smoke banana in your hoop, and now I know the band is
Earnie, Mac and haversack dusty is the bric-a-brac
And if you ask me for the time, I tell you that the preacher’s back

You got the best of my loco
I’ll take the rest of your showboat
You got the best of my Yoko
I’ll take the rest of your low note

Steve Miller and Duran Duran, the dancing in the sand
Van Morrison, the Astral man, the festival of hurricanes
Speak of Chico, remember silence of a certain lamb
MC5 kick out the jam, a poncho full of contraband
Merry Queen was on the scene magazine
The Motörhead and mystic
I must’ve needed Valvoline

I will be your poster child
You know the world is ours for a little while
And then I will be your poster child tonight

You got me on this
But then I can’t get off
With no one else but you
You turn me on to
Well, then I can’t get up, ooh
For no one else but you

Creem magazine, A Love Supreme, the ballad of a Billie Jean
And now we know the Status Quo, but God would never save the Queen
Shaken, Copenhagen, cop a ghost of Ronald Reagan
All I say was Flavor Flav the cosmic rays were power saving
And my fist double kissed a listed number purple
Mr Chubby Checker do the twist, and everyone’s a narcissist

You got the best of my loco
I’ll take the rest of your showboat
You got the best of my logo
I’ll take the rest of your low note

The waterbed was takin’ meds
A beaver with the house of red a pocket full of knocking heads
MIA is making paper planes, addiction to the ways of Janes
My stuff is made of purple rain
Ten fingers in the lion’s mane
Giant squid, Karate Kid, Sid Vicious and the we did
The planet that we must

I will be your poster child
You know the world is ours for a little while
And then I will be your poster child tonight

I will be your poster child
You know the world is ours for a little while
And then I will be your poster child tonight”
