novapsyche: a young girl sitting with her fist up to her chin, her face turned away, ringed by a blue crescent (crescentgirl)
When I matriculated to my alma mater, I was a good fan of Faith No More, who was introduced to me when I was a sophomore in high school. Their music was one of the major influences that got me into alternative music.

In 1996, Merril Bainbridge came out with "Mouth". It was a decent hit, making it to #4 on the charts, if I'm not mistaken. Good song for the moment.

Then FNM came out with "I Started a Joke" not a year later. It took me a while, but I synced the two artists together & figured out that FNM was making fun of the other's release of "Sleeping Dogs". How else was it that they were using the exact same lyrics?

Then it was to come to this year, when I had access to Grooveshark & found that both bands covered a song by the Bee Gees, a band that I have more than nominal respect for. Their songs happened to come out within a year of each other, which is why FNM's song seemed to be a parody. Now I know. Knowing is half the battle.
