Um misinterpreting it at 15 is fine, the fact that you STILL don't get it at whatever the hell age you are now is what people were pissed about. You imply that you didn't understand it then, but you do now? If you get it, why did you write it?

ooo ooo I feel like Morrissey! Band-aids on my nipples 'cause I feel like Morrissey!

I wish I could go through and "Like" all these comments. I'm 35. I listened to Rancid, NOFX (my brother had all the posters for Heavy Petting Zoo.. so gross but funny!) I discovered Me First through NOFX My now husband toked it up with Less Than Jake on their tour bus in Houston when we were teenagers and we still go see them as often as we can!
All I can say is FUCK BLINK they are over-rated radio shit!

My parents were dicks, I got picked on all through school for being what the kickers referred to as "hair fucks" and I was told by everyone in my family that the best I could hope for was to find "a good man to take care of me." and I believed it! I did it!
I married well, had 3 kids and at 30 I woke up and said "I didn't want any of this" I divorced my husband, my parents told me it was the biggest mistake I ever made. They told me I was selfish and not thinking of my children's well being and that they would suffer for my decision. Nevermind that I was so very unhappy that I had, lets just say, done some things I'm not proud of. All out of desperation. No one cared!

Shortly after I got all my shit together I got laid off. I lost everything. Kids had to go to dad, I lost my place to live and my car. Instead of loving open arms from my family I got a big fat "I TOLD YOU SO" and a door to the face. I lived in a shed in a friend's back yard!

3 months later, I had a job, an apartment, my kids AND my car back. Everyday I was determined that I would prove them all wrong with one great big FUCK YOU!
When I got that job and got into my car and turned on the radio the same song played, and still does. Message in a Beer Bottle. It was my drive, it pushed me to do everything on my own because when I could look my mother in the face and say "I've done ok IN SPITE of you!" I felt my heart beat for the first time. I became who I always wanted to be and never believed I could.
I live my life how I want. I don't have a lot of money but we have everything we need, a lot of what we want and do my kids care that we don't have what we had 6 years ago? NOPE they care that they have a happy mom who is able to be their friend and have fun! I have learned how little I truly NEED to be happy, and even more surprised at how few of those things cost money.
As a teen, as woman, as a mother I would like to say THANK YOU TO SCREECHING WEASEL for being my "Eye of the Tiger", forever pushing me. I didn't want to just prove them wrong I wanted to say FUCK YOU! I never saw it their way and I always walked the path that I was told I shouldn't walk. Above all I DO wake up everyday with a smile on my face! That song inspired me to change my life and I always felt like Screeching Weasel had my back pushing me to do what had to be done!

Please don't write a story if you are an idiot that doesn't know how to interpret shit! Peter Brady is a sarcastic view of how society forces you to conform or be ostracizes you for it! He is actually on your side idiot! Please dont listen to my favorite bands as you are too stupid to understand them.
"I'VE GOT A MESSAGE FOR YOU! I FUCKED IT UP AND I STILL TURNED OUT OK! AND I'M HAPPY BEING EVERYTHING YOU HATE! I'M STILL WALKING LIKE A JERK OUT IN THE RAIN. I STILL WAKE UP WITH A SMILE ON MY FACE!"
