because many of them are macho pricks?
the following vid is of the Uranium Savages, an Austin legendary band, that has been around for decades. This is their song, "Policeman."
"I want carry a big stick, drive a fast car. I wanna be a macho man"!
" On December 12, 1974, knowing that if they lost the Battle of the Bands to the more veteran Marsh Mongrels, that they might never play again, the Uranium Savages nervously took the stage of the Ritz Theatre first that cold night 30 years ago, complete with their accompanying skits, their colorful costuming and a hovering band security force known as the Shrovinovers dressed entirely in white with red fezzes and matching red sashes to protect and serve the Uranium Savages should any problems arise. Their first song was accompanied by 27 rhythm guitar players and female dancers that called themselves “The Ritzettes”. Some dazed audience members still adamantly claim that the Uranium Savages pumped massive clouds of marijuana smoke out through the air conditioning system (employing a technique known as “Hot Knives”) during the Savages performance to influence the response of the large crowd that evening but, 3 decades later, no reporter can confirm the truth of these claims. After finishing their set, the Savages left the stage to their archrivals, the Marsh Mongrels; they were exhausted and hopeful about their chances to win the Battle of the Bands. Fortunately for the Savages that night, shortly after the Marsh Mongrels began playing, the stage very mysteriously lost all its’ power and their music could not be heard so the Savages won the Battle of the Bands by default.
The Uranium Savages won that night and went on to open at the Ritz on New Year’s Eve 1975 and have kept on playing – to blindly go where no band has gone before – until today, 3 decades later, when they remain…..”The band to dumb to die “. . . .
Over these last three decades, the Uranium Savages have played with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Dr. Hook, Darryl Rhoades and his HahaVishnu Orchestra, the Austin Lounge Lizards, Joe Ely Jerry Jeff Walker, Timbuk 3, Omar and the Howlers the Rhythm Rats, Doug Sahm, the Sons of Sahm, Augie Myers, Marsha Ball, Ray Campi, Alvin Crow, the Geezenslaw Brothers, Steve Fromholtz, Steam/Extreme Heat, Harry Anderson, Chubby Checker, Balcones Fault, the Big Boys, Bubble Puppy, Shiva’s Head Band, Greezy Wheels, Wavy Gravy, Texoid, John Kelso, Joe ‘King” Carrasco. The Explosives, Esther’s Follies, the Next, Ponty Bone, Beto y los Fairlanes, Ro-tel and the Hot Tomatoes, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Bugs Henderson, Rusty Wier, Tex Thomas, Ben E. King, the Leroi Brothers, Ray Benson, the Texana Dames, the Tailgators, the Cherry-Poppin’ Daddies, Willie Nelsons …and dozens of other wonderful groups.
The Savages have so far as yet only played in the towns of Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Amarillo, South Padre Island, Corpus Christi, Fredericksburg, Nacogdoches, Manor Downs, San Marcos, Luchenbach and Creedmoor. They look forward after their first 30 years to finally playing out of the state of Texas. There have been over 100 of Austin’s finest musicians that have played in the Uranium Savages group - a list to long to enumerate here – but everyone in the Uranium Savages still is proud of the award given to them in the year 2000 by the Austin Chronicle…'The Uranium Savages - The Best Proof That Drugs Don’t Kill You!'"
(and there are folks on here who think everybody in Texas is some dumb redneck hick -- wish you would quit dissing us. there are probably just as many idiots in any of the other states)
