Surveillance Race, Surveillance Race: Parody Tribute to Motorhead’s Lemmy

Lemmy is already giving ’em hell down there! A true legend, and I really hope he would have liked this one.

If you are a hacker, and a freedom-loving man
Woman, child, poor, rich, all the same to me
The pleasure is to play, and punk the NSA
Surveillance Race! Surveillance Race!

Surfed another data flow, reached another level
Mainframe walls are gonna blow, it’s all a game to me,
Storm the gates of Heaven, Big Data is Watching You
I ain’t gonna quit, NSA ain’t got shit!
Surveillance Race! Surveillance Race!

You know the government’s gonna lose, state espionage is for fools
They sure ain’t gonna like this baby,
Big Snooping, it won’t last forever
A freedom lover ain’t no joker!

Cruising up the wires, No way in hell they’ll see me,
Your screen goes blank, lost the trail again,
Wonk tears are in your eyes, your last connection dies!
‘Cause web freedom ain’t no sin, and we are gonna win!
Surveillance Race! Surveillance Race!


I’ve also made an alternative parody of this song on AmIRight. Also, watch out for our story on Peter Gabriel & Bono tomorrow at Glossy News!
