Critical Mass Song
(should be yelled at high volume)

by Stephen LaMarca of Santa Cruz, CA

Come on y'all
and get your ass
straight on down to the
Critical Mass

You don't need a car
You don't need gas
Just to ride around town
in the Critical Mass

Throw away your petrol machine
and live the best life you've ever seen
Livin', lovin' with Mother Earth
Using the tools she gave you at birth

It's a celebration
Movin' in rotation
Going clear across the nation

Talking evolution revolution
It's a celebrations
What a revelation revolution

So come on y'all
and get your ass
straight on down to
the Critical Mass

You don't need a car
You don't need gas
Just to ride around town
in the Critical Mass

Now we're taking back the street
with the power of our feet
coming from --your spot here--
where we meet

We go slow
yo' mellow don't you know
we don't go fast
don't matter if you're last
you won't get past
the Critical Mass

Now beauty in the midst of motion
People got the power of the ocean
Power to the people with the people power! (2x)

bikes not bush" by crucial unit
wish you were dead.
skid on your head.
you start a war.
in the name of oil.
we want bikes not bush.
ride a bike instead of supporting his greedy oil industry.

"Bike Punx" by Divide and Conquer
Trash the El Camino because the kids are ready to ride
Go two-wheeled disaster! Shout it out: Bike Pride!
Pissing every car off, We'll call them nasty names
Extend the middle finger and ride in every lane
Bike Punx!
With freedom on our minds and wrenches in our hands
fuck highway construction
Let's go take the land
We'll peddle through the cities
this war-cry we will send
when internal combustion meets the bitter end
Bike Punx!

"Bike militia" by Divide and Conquer
U-locks by our sides, we're hitting the town
Power-crazed motorist is gonna frown
windsheilds, mirrors, kicked-in doors
face down, eating street
You know what for?
We've had enough of you threatening our lives
with wheels and steel and clouds of black
Prepare to die! The Bike Mitilita has now declared:
All Out Attack!
Think of the millions who met their end
smashed across the grill of a Mercedes-Benz
The biking batallions are here to heal
the four-wheeled disease: the automobile
Nothing in the world could stop this rage
Grovel! Cel-phone shattered. We want a
Victory in blood. Pray to your lord
Bring me the head of Henry Ford

"Helter Smelter"- by Fifteen
I just drive my car to work every day, didn't mean to hurt nobody
Like 100 million other people just like me,
I could tell there wasn't any other way,
I just couldn't realize but now I think I'll throw it away
Cuz there's 6 billion other people just like me
I was thinking about blowin' up all the automobiles
It seemed like such a good idea
You said hey man wouldn't that be hypocritical
No way man cuz mines' the first to go
Do it, Now, Stick the rag in, Light the fucked up
I was thinking about melting down all the cars in the whole world
Making brand new mountain bikes for all the boys and girls
You said hey man wouldn't that be helter skelter
No way man all we need is a giant smelter
Send it to Peoples Park, Berkeley CA, 94704
Ride a fucking bike
I just lit my car on fire today I didn't mean to hurt nobody
Just like 100 million other people just like me, I could tell
there wasn't any other way
I finally realized and now it's going up in flames
Cuz there's 6 billion other people just like me
Having fun, since I was six, We're only bike terrorists
Five thirty, second Friday, Berkeley Bart

"bike lane" by Dead Things
River road, it streaches far and narrow,
my wheels are bald and my brakes worn thin.
The road is winding as the cracks open wide for me,
they're trying to swallow me whole.
The thorns and the briars scratch at my side as I try to ride on by. There in the bike lane I think of you, trying to make time.
In the bike lane, it's my place and
I'll fight 'till the death before you take it away.
The price on my head keeps rising every day
as I cut off another car on my way to your place.
The bike lane always leads to my baby.
The bike lane always takes me home.
