The lyrics to “Corporate Whore” were written when I was outraged over my dealings with that corrupt landlord. The music came before the words. It’s roughly a tale about someone who once held fast to the hippie ideals of the late ’60s and then turned their back on them to become a crass, money-hungry pig. Someone who doesn’t hesitate to screw over hard working individuals if it means a fatter bank account. I saw plenty of that in L.A. On one hand I wish I’d been around to experience the hippie era, on the other I see the backlash. AIDS, corporate globalization, you name it. People call the ’80s the “Me Decade.” A lot of people are still way too self-absorbed.

And as a proud employee of mega corporation Boeing, I’m relieved to learn that “Corporate Whore” wasn’t written about me!
