Just off the top of my head, I would suggest "People try to put us down" from The Who's "My Generation";

"Girls won't touch me cos I've got a misdirection" from Rocket From The Tombs' "Final Solution"; and

"Hey what's your problem baby" from Honcho Overload's "Brain Bath."

darkness at the break of noon, shadows even the silver spoon, the handmade blade the child's balloon, eclipses both the sun & moon, to understand you know too soon, there is no sense in trying.

hey kids shake it loose together, the spotlight's hittin' somethin' that's been known to change the weather-we'll kill the spotted calf tonight so come along, where we fight our parents out in the street to find who's right & who's wrong.
