    UNSUNG by HELMET 
    From their Album "Meantime" released in 1992
    
    Your contribution left unnoticed some
    Association with an image
    Just credit time for showing up again
    Attention wandered I'm left with it
    
    Gone by sin too slowly
    Can't pass it up
    Then I thought nothing is right
    I turned it off
    
    To die unsung would really bring you down
    Although wet eyes would never suit you
    Walk through no archetypal suicide
    Die young is far too boring these days
    
    Your will to speak clearly
    Exposed too much
    Unsung once too often
    Could not rub off
    
    =====================================
    PERSONAL JESUS by DEPECHE MODE
    From their Album "Violator" released in 1990
    
    Reach out and touch faith
    
    Your own personal Jesus
    Someone to hear your prayers
    Someone who cares
    Your own personal Jesus
    Someone to hear your prayers
    Someone who's there
    
    Feeling unknown 
    And you're all alone
    Flesh and bone 
    By the telephone
    Lift up the receiver
    I'll make you a believer
    
    Take second best 
    Put me to the test
    Things on your chest
    You need to confess
    I will deliver
    You know I'm a forgiver
    
    Reach out and touch faith
    Reach out and touch faith
    
    Your own personal Jesus
    Someone to hear your prayers
    Someone who cares
    Your own personal Jesus
    Someone to hear your prayers
    Someone who's there
    
    Feeling unknown 
    And you're all alone
    Flesh and bone
    By the telephone
    Lift up the receiver
    I'll make you a believer
    I will deliver
    You know I'm a forgiver
    
    Reach out and touch faith
    
    Your own personal Jesus
    
    Reach out and touch faith

    MIDLIFE CRISIS by FAITH NO MORE
    From their Album "Angel Dust" released in 1992
    
    Go on and wring my neck
    Like when a rag gets wet
    A little discipline
    For my pet genius
    My head is like a lettuce
    Go on and dig your thumbs in
    I cannot stop giving
    I'm thirty-something
    Sense of security
    Like pockets jingling
    Midlife crisis
    Suck ingenuity
    Down through the family tree
    You're perfect, yes, it's true
    But without me you're only you
    Your menstruating heart
    It ain't bleeding enough for two
    It's a midlife crisis...
    What an inheritance
    The salt and the kleenex
    Morbid self attention
    Bending my pinky back
    A little discipline
    A donor by habit
    A little discipline
    Rent an opinion
    Sense of security
    Holding blunt instrument
    I'm a perfectionist
    And perfect is a skinned knee
    You're perfect, yes, it's true
    But without me you're only you
    Your menstruating heart
    It ain't bleeding enough for two
    It's a midlife crisis...............

    I'm the smiling face on your T.V.
    I'm the Cult of Personality
    I exploit you still you love me
    
    I tell you one and one makes three
    I'm the Cult of Personality
    Like Joseph Stalin and Gandi
    I'm the Cult of Personality
    Cult of Personality
    Cult of Personality
    
    Neon lights a Nobel Prize
    A leader speaks, that leader dies
    You don't have to follow me

    You gave me fortune
    You gave me fame
    You me power in your God's name

    PRETEND WE'RE DEAD by L7
    From their Album "Bricks Are Heavy" released in 1992
    
    Whats up with what's going down
    In every city, in every town
    Cramping styles is the plan.
    They've got us in the palm of every hand.
    
    When we pretend that we're dead 
    When we pretend that we're dead 
    They can't hear a word we've said 
    When we pretend that we're dead
    
    (c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon)
    (c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon)
    
    (c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon)
    (c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon)
    
    We turn the tables with our unity,
    They're neither moral nor majority.
    Wake up and smell the coffee
    Or just say no to individuality.
    
    When we pretend that we're dead
    (pretend we're dead)
    When we pretend that we're dead
    (pretend we're dead) 
    They can't hear a word we've said 
    (pretend we're dead)
    When we pretend that we're dead 
    
    (c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon)
    (c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon)
    (c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon)
    (c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon)
    
    When we pretend that we're dead
    (pretend we're dead)
    When we pretend that we're dead
    (pretend we're dead) 
    They can't hear a word we've said 
    (pretend we're dead)
    When we pretend that we're dead

    HELLRAISER by OZZY OSBOURNE
    From his Album "No More Tears" released in 1991
    
    I'm living on an endless road
    Around the world for rock and roll
    Sometimes it feels so tough
    But I still ain't had enough
    I keep saying that it's getting too much
    But I know I'm a liar
    Feeling all right in the noise and the light
    But that's what lights my fire
    
    Hellraiser,
    In the thunder and heat
    Hellraiser,
    Rock you back in your seat
    Hellraiser,
    And I'll make it come true
    Hellraiser,
    I'll put a spell on you
    
    Walking out on another stage,
    Another town, another place
    Sometimes I don't feel right
    Nerves wound up too damn tight
    People keep telling me it's bad for my health
    But kicking back don't make it
    Out of control,
    I play the ultimate role
    But that's what lights my fire
    
    Hellraiser,
    In the thunder and heat
    Hellraiser,
    Rock you back in your seat
    Hellraiser,
    And I'll make it come true
    Hellraiser,
    I'll put a spell on you

    it's gonna be too dark to sleep again
    cutting my teeth on bars and rusty chains
    i'm gonna break my rusty cage and run
    
    When the forest burns along the road
    like God's eyes in my headlights
    when the dogs are looking for their bones
    and it's raining ice picks on your steel shore
    
    But i'm gonna break
    i'm gonna break my
    i'm gonna break my rusty cage
    
    Yeah, i'm gonna break

    Well, it's just a simple fact. 
    When I want something,
    I don't want to pay for it. 
    
    I walk right through the door. 
    Walk right through the door. 
    Hey all right! If I get by, it's mine. 
    Mine all mine! 
    
    My girl, she's one too.
    She'll go and get her a skirt. 
    Stick it under her shirt.

    We sat and laughed and
    Waved it into the air!

    We don't want to pay for it.
    
    We walk right through the door. 
    Walk right through the door. 
    Hey, all right! If I get by, it's mine,

    Gold's just around the corner
    Breakdown's coming up round the bend 
    
    Sometimes you have to try to get along dear
    I know the truth and I know what you're thinking 
    
    Down down down down da down down down 
    
    I'm standing alone

                  04 --- SONGS LEFT OUT?
                  ***************************
    There are alot of bands and songs that should have been put into the game.
    I dont know why Nirvana or Pearl Jam were left out, why there wasnt any
    ACDC, or why they didnt have more GNR, or RATM (since they had alot 
    of Dr. Dre tracks on another station).  Still, the songs they have put in
    the game are a very good selection.
