    It's not the song per se, it's because it's the Spock-kicking-ass scene music. I believe.

    Spock's thing was to always kick asses very calmly.

    Understood & Confirmed! Thank you, sir.

    ...Your knowledge of the STAR TREK franchise knows no equal, sir! I thank you, also.

    I knew this, too. : pouts, pats self on back: ;) Also, if you want to see something weird, look over his IMDB.

    And it isn't Weird Al *at all* - it was made because Kirk Thatcher didn't want some cheesy pop song at that point in the movie, but something sincerely representing the actual punk rock that was supposed to be there. And having listened to the whole track many times, as well as other examples of the genre, I would say he did a good job and that if he failed in any way, it might be that the track is actually slightly too enjoyable and listenable compared to most punk. :klingon:

    Also Kirk is credited in the film and on the Intrada album. This isn't really secret information.

    Funny thing is, it's a song about hate, written by a guy we love for writing it, apparently.

    It's more convincing than the Kurgan listening Queen (of course, Hard Rock material, but too sophisticated for the purpose) in Highlander.

    No, it is the song, and specifically the fact that someone managed to get "eschew you," "screw you," and "blue too" to rhyme.

    I know how he acted in the movie, but he *was* hundreds of years old. He probably had whole years or even decades where he just chilled and enjoyed stuff without killing anyone - and he liked Sinatra, apparently, too.

    This.

    I'm guessing no one saw that one coming back then.
