    So I heard this song a few weeks ago, and it's been stuck in my head. Part of me looks at the song and finds it motivational, and a reminder to keep working, particularly with the grind of always rolling or sparring with people better than me. Part of me thinks about back when I was fencing, how I'd feel listening to this song after I lost a match, and i'm pretty sure it would have made me furious. I don't know if the change is because I'm no longer competing, so I'm not putting as much pressure on myself (which is definitely true), or if it's a maturity thing.

    What's everyone else's thoughts on this song?

    Warning: if you have kids and don't want them to hear curse words, don't listen to this song around them. There's not a lot, but there is some.

    Since you ask: I didn't find it musical enough to think of it as s "song."

    Any thoughts on whether or not you'd find it motivational, if it was more musical?

    I am sorry, it struck me as funny, Maybe with different music it might be motivational.

    The band actually is a comedy band. The lyrics felt out of place to me, compared to their normal songs

    Yeah, it felt 50% comedy, 50% motivational to me. I can't really decide if it made me want to work harder, or that's just the endorphins from laughing at the first verse.
