I had never heard of the hardcore punk/garage punk outfit The Veggers before today, but I’m glad I came across “Yes“.
The music video graphically depicts school bullying and the consequences of it on the bullied, including depression, self-harm, thoughts of violence, and then expressing that violence.
It’s a powerful message in its own right, but I do enjoy the lyrics to the song more:
“Mass media breaks one person’s creative mind,
Television breaks one person’s creative thought.
No more ‘Yes Sir’, no more ‘Yes Ma’am’.
Senior system forced to be ‘yes’ to each other,
Hypocrite forced to be ‘yes’ to each other.
No more ‘Yes Sir’, no more ‘Yes Ma’am’. (x8)
REAL HEP-HAP SWEG
