THAT GOOD OLD-FASHIONED DUBSTEP

you can have your post-grunge grindcore
you can dance the night away to your anti-trip hop
let the acid jazz wash over your bluetooth system
it’s always been that good old-fashioned dubstep for me

you can sway and swing to your nerdcore all night
you can sing aloud those industrial gospel blues
and ride down the freeway
with your tapedeck playing your neofolk gypsy punk
it’s always been that good old-fashioned dubstep for me

i’ll take my iPhone five off the shelf and dust it off
and press play on my spotify
because it’s that dubstep fade-in
and that dubstep drop
that really soothes my weary soul

you can have your bikutsi lo-fi
and your bossanova reggaetone
you can keep your experimental k-pop
and your happy hardcore freak folk
it’s always been
that good old-fashioned dubstep for me
