Underneath the cheesy pop tune, terrible lyrics (“Marconi plays the mamba”), and perhaps the worst video in history - complete with a coked out Grace Slick and lip-syncing Abe Lincoln - lies a message about corporate power and greed. Despite whatever sympathies one might have for the message, we’re supposed to follow Starship (nee, Jefferson Starship; nee Jefferson Airplane) on a socialist revolution? Please.
The epitome of anti-corporatist corporate rock.
