Camper Van Beethoven - "Take the Skinheads Bowling"

"It's about nothing, really," Camper Van Beethoven frontman David Lowery once said of "Take the Skinheads Bowling." "But it's one of those songs that the more you repeat the mantra the more you understand it." Me, I've always seen the song as being weirdly optimistic: Maybe even skinheads would change their ways if you just invited them to throw a few frames. But mostly, it's just a really catchy song.
