Bernando and Miami Herald reporter Rian argue over the merits of being crowned “the worst band in America”.


Bernando: If there was a sound
Made by people you hate
That set your teeth on edge
Could you flip it around?
What if music was war?
Rian: What if they were your friends?

Bernando: Shining, uncontested stands the awful truth
Elected and infected wears the crown
Three horsemen bring apocalypse
Three horsemen ride into your town

Rian: It was decided back in ninety three
A porn lit heir put forth the call
For all the worst, there has to be a first
Someone to bravely take the fall

Rian: If there was a band
Made of people you loved

Bernando: But their music was shit
Would you still remain true?
Would you still come around,
If the joke was on you?
