In the song Hopeless is that Dexter Holland singing? I know it is, but my friend doesn't believe me so I had to post this.

At first I thought it was Doug Thompson singing and Dexter drumming.

No, and neither do you.
I didn't say I still think that, I said I did at first.
I thought it because it sounds like Dexter's drum kit.

Seriously, you have to either be deaf or an idiot to think that it's NOT Dexter singing.. You can clearly hear it's him.

These lyrics might not be correct as I found them here (http://www.songmeanings.net/lyric.php?lid=3530822107858554374)

Everything must regulate
Maybe so, I need you!

Give me all the fixes the therapy,
I'm needing more and more

Advertise and specialize,
Just tell me what to do.

Confucious think you're up the shack,
They got you where they really want to.

Well, life is structured, everything you own has been manafactured,
you have no say,
Your progress here is guaranteed.

(Hopeless!) Just let me out of this fucking world, this is
(Hopeless!) Rot away in front your T.V., you're gonna be
(Helpless!) Do anything for yourself,
I'm trapped in your society!

You run your life, hey!, you're on a ride,
Hey, it's just like Disneyland!
You see the car, but you turn around,
And it's all been safely planned.

Regeneration is the game; Your nation will endure,
You freedom has been convienantly shacked,
So show it some damn respect!

Well, life is structured, everything you own has been manafactured,
you have no say,
Your progress here is guaranteed.

(Hopeless!) Just let me out of this fucking world, this is
(Hopeless!) Rot away in front your T.V., you're gonna be
(Helpless!) Do anything for yourself,
I'm trapped in your society.

Yeah...I can make a slight connection between the two in the song. The song itself has a Dead Kennedys feel to it.

It kinda reminds me of '80 Times' ... anybody else? and it wasn't so much the voice that made me know it's Dexter, more the way it's sung, he sounds so young :p

I think it sounds like DK, too... not shocking, though, seeing as they based a lot off of DK, especially the idea of Beheaded. I'm glad they changed their sound, though, and made it their own.
