No Bad News
02/24/07 at 13:44:23
 
Do any of you think (like me) that the first verse could be about our dear old President Bush?
 
---------------
 
Don't bring me bad news...no bad news
I don't need none of your bad news today
You're a sad little boy.  anyone can see
you're just a sad little boy, that's why you're carrying on that way
 
Why don't you burn it all down
burn your own house down,  
burn your own house down
Try to kill your own disease
 
Leave the rest of us --  
there's a lot of us who want to live in peace --
to live in peace

In concerts and interviews, Patty has hinted that the song was written about our President.

Before anyone said anything about it being written about Bush, I always thought it was just another anti-relationship song. But now I think it's hilarious and clever if it's written about Bush. At first the song seems to far too vague to be written about the president, but if you look again... why the hell not  Tongue

I had always loved the song for the music/guitar part of it, but when Patty said she wrote it for our president, it gave me a newfound appreciation for the song and a "duh!" moment because it's totally clear.

She more than hinted at it, she has stated it outright in a radio interview from a year or so ago that she wrote it about Bush.

If it's true, it's one more reason to love Patty.   The guy is a waste of human skin.

Well, in a fairly recent interview, this is what was said:
 
Quote:
Griffin also mined deep wells for inspiration. Like an airport bathroom stall.

"(I was) relieving myself in between flights and hearing, 'Today is an orange alert. Please report any suspicious activity to - ,' and I just thought, 'What the hell are you talking about?' It's really completely bogus (and) meant to inspire fear."

She was pissed.

To alleviate her stress, she funneled her fuming feelings into rattled rock tune "No Bad News," which blames peace problems on a "sad boy." Some may see the bashing as a Dixie Chicks-inspired moment. But Griffin won't name names.

"Oh, that could be anybody," she laughs.

 
But she actually already had named names in a radio interview on, I think it was BBC radio or something like that, when she was in Europe touring for Impossible Dream:
 
Quote:
Q. Anyway you’re going to do another song… what’s it called?

PG: This is called No Bad News. I wrote this for our president.

Q. Does he know about it yet?

PG: No, he really probably doesn’t care too much about it!

WinkI love it when she says:
 
You can't have my fear
I got nothing to lose
Can't have my fear
I'm not gettin outta here alive anyway!
 
Now, that is the right attitude, I agree 100%

Bad news?  Good thing you did not live during WWII or the great depression. Time for my song again.
   
 
They wannabe hippies  
Cause they missed out on the sixties  
Protest be what they all about  
To me its just a lot of shout  
They wannabe hippies  
 
 They wannabe yippies  
A little left of the hippies  
Narcissists and trippies  
Give me a break show me your t i t s  
They wannabe yippies  
 
 They wannabe yuppies  
Driving Volvos with a chocolate lab  
Been there done it, hey ya look real rad  
Truth is you’re sad not even close to bad  
They wannabe yuppies  
 
 They wannabe libbies  
Global warming and no war worth while  
I tell ya man it makes me really smile  
To know there is people that are that darn  
 vile  
They wannabe libbies  
 
Me I wannabe away  
No TV telephone or cable  
Me myself and I unstable  
Me I wannabe away.
