"Greetings from the future. I come from a society consisting entirely of D.J.'s" "WHAT?!?? You don't mean..." "Yes Dr. Pinkerton... in my time THERE ARE NO MORE M.C.'s! So you will have to rap for us!" "Of course... a rhythmic discourse - about the brain!"
Here's another remake of a song from the original cassette, and a very popular song as well. The lyrics to this song were originally written back in 1991, in Calculus class (I failed calc that year...) and grafted onto a ridiculous beat that was derived from Depeche Mode's 'Master and Servant' in an attempt to annoy Kirk's girlfriend. We ended up slowing the beat, and everything else, down, generating a real brain dead delivery.
We have had a lot of fun with this one onstage since the very early C.O.G. shows. My old guitarist Dr. Wissenschaft used to wear a large digital clock (blinking 12:00) around his neck during this song. I remember people at early shows pointedly ignoring us during the heavy metal songs, then getting up and getting down when the beat started for Brain Wrap!
As funny as the original version of the song was, it was getting pretty moldy by 2000, and so Jeff decided to freshen it up by giving it a Limp Bizkit rap/rock treatment with heavy guitars and revised lyrics. Jeff actually performed the lyrics on the CD. Onstage, I do the rap, and lately the 'party' namecheck has had 'ODB' replaced by 'Dr. Z' (ODB couldn't make it... he's dead!)
