For real, I've had this album since it came out and I've never seen this
Spanish parts: 1st Verse. [Yo supe que nadie iba a comprender tu música, pero tú no me hiciste caso. Yo te dije, no te vistas en color rosa]. "I knew that nobody would understand your music, but you wouldn't listen. I told you, don't dress in pink". 2nd Verse. [Yo te dije. No debes de firmar con una compañía de discos tan grande, ellos no te aprecian. Yo no te veo en MTV]. "I told you. You shouldn't sign with a record company so big. They don't appreciate you. I don't see you on MTV". 3rd Verse. [¿Dondé está todo el dinero que me debes? ¡LADRÓN!. Y ademas, ¿Dondé está todo el dinero que me debes? ¡LADRÓN!] {FADING}. "Where´s all the money you owe me? THIEF!. And Besides, Where´s all the money you owe me? THIEF!".
+Lucas Arturo Melgarejo Albornoz Pues la verdad decir y asegurar pues no... a mi interpretación lo es.... El video y la canción es como un ataque a lo popular, y MTV es para bandas populares y yo lo veo como un sarcasmo por eso de las grandes compañias.... pero bueno, el Español de Celia Euringer no es muy bueno, asi que las intepretaciones sobraran. yo he visto quienes dicen "Yo no creo en ti". La verdad es que es dificil saberlo :v haha

+Darby Petersen It's a metaphor, my friend.. Mark David Chapman has been described as "killing the music industry" because of his assassination of John Lennon. Not everything is as it seems. I feel the title fits seeing as music of now-a-days is just killing music for me.. I have so much trouble trying to find unique bands. If you read the lyrics, it's basically saying we need to get rid of a lot of the usual and same stuff/bands we see in the music industry. MSI is saying they want to see more creativity.  Here's the lyrics as to why Mark''s name is the name of the song: Hey When the world's overrun With too many bands Who is it time for Mark Chapman Hey When they all seem absurd He will thin out the herd Ladies and gentleman Mark Chapman It's a joke, really.. saying to just get rid of all the same trash (factory produced bands) and help clear the way for the unique bands. In some of their other lyrics they describe "being in prison" as basically saying they're stuck in an industry full of carbon copied bands and they can't really get recognized for their creativity cause there is just too much garbage in the music industry.  I hope you understand, now..

I feel like the movie adaptation of Scott Pilgrim was heavily influenced by this music video.
