Screeching Weasel stream title track off upcoming EP

The newly reformed Screeching Weasel have premiered the title track off their upcoming EP, “Carnival Of Schadenfreude,” and you can check it out here.

The song is clearly about the SXSW incident that temporarily ostracized Weasel from the punk community and led to the ultimate new lineup of his band.  No surprise, they’re coming out swinging!  Here’s how the song ends:

Hey, go ahead and laugh
‘Cause guess what, ya chumps?
I’m back and I won’t forget who sold me out

You can read all the lyrics here.  This is turning into the punk equivalent of Biggie vs. 2pac! Time will tell if Dan Vapid and his new band will retaliate with a song of their own around the incident.

“Carnival Of Schadenfreude” will be released October 29th on Recess Records.

Lyrics:

Here in the Carnival of Schadenfreude

Everyone’s acting like they’re so annoyed

Looks like my name is mud

I can’t help but ask “So what?”

I’m trying to make a buck, not friends

Everyone’s piling on

If I had a magic wand

I’d offer to shove it up their ass

Deep in the ugly heart of Texas now

They called it a battle of the sexes – wow!

It all seems a little fake

I can’t seem to catch a break

My gosh and for goodness’ sake it’s silly

Fat kicked me in the pants

But I got paid in advance

Enjoy that 30,000 dollar mess!

Here in the Carnival of Schadenfreude

Everyone’s saying that I’m unemployed

Kick a man while he’s down,

You’d better make sure he’s out for good

Or you’re gonna have a problem

Hey, go ahead and laugh

‘Cause guess what, ya chumps?

I’m back and I won’t forget who sold me out
