    It's a reference to a reference. DK referencing Orwell.

    It depresses me how few people get the DK reference.

    It occurred to me tonight that really, it's a reference to a reference to a reference. "Flashback 1984" is a line in "We've Got a Bigger Problem Now," which is a re-do of "California Uber Alles" done up to be about President Reagan instead of Gov. Jerry Brown. "California Uber Alles" refers to Orwell with its 1984 reference, but also because the year 1984 was just a few years away.

    it actually says "Welcome to 1984" and "Now it is 1984" but i'm sure the song refers to both dk's song and orwell's book... btw DK is one of my favorite bands and i think i like We've got a bigger problem now more than California uber alles, and Plastic Surgery Disaster is one of my all time fav punk albums...and i like orwell's books too..:)

    My memory is going in my old age. Is there a convalescent home for cranky old recovering punk rockers?

    Still, incepted.

    I assumed this was in reference to the book.


    But the word "flashback" to me could reference the band, although they formed in '83, they began picking up a following in '84.
