Argentina Track number: 8 Year: 2020 Album: Little Monster Genre: Alternative
We can’t just fire all of the cops then have a bunch of unemployed psychos running around. And we can’t kill them, for some reason. And we don’t want to pay to keep them fed in prison for 50 years. So they need to do what all war criminals usually do, move to Argentina. You’re welcome
The Word is Out
The Word is Out Track number: 9 Year: 2029 Album: Little Monster Genre: Punk

Making a Killing
Making a Killing2FL - Making a Killing EP18 Welcome to episode 18 of 2FL’s 2020 50/50 project. I know you have questions: What’s a 50/50 Project?￼ Excellent question. We don’t know what the real meaning is but it in our case as 2FL we’re writing 50 new songs, recording them and posting them in 50 days.￼ What is 2FL? 2FL’s is an acronym with a number in it. The acronym stands for Second Floor Lounge￼. 2FL stands for all things rock ‘n’ roll and stands beside and behind everyone working to make the nightmare that is 2020 go away and hold those responsible for the tragency continuing to unfold accountable. Listen to the song. What’s 2020? We answered that in the last question: 2020 is a nightmare. If you voted for that guy and you’re still supporting him it’s your fault￼? Don’t have any/anymore children￼, please. To enjoy video from ￼2FL visit the YouTube: https://youtu.be/Hm_vHTy9IYA
And That’s All
And That’s All2FL - And That’s All EP17 Episode 17 in 2FL’s 2020 50/50 Project is a number called “And That’s All” folks. 2FL plays both kinds of music - punk and rock - and writes 2 kinds of songs - love songs and protest songs. This is probably a punk love song. It’s almost a power ballad. Gross. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm5CtimB2mkZt5BluIroJpQ
Loaded Gun2FL - Loaded Gun EP16 Episode 16 in 2FL’s 2020 50/50 Project is a song titled “Loaded Gun.” It sounds like a romantic ballad if you ignore most of the lyrics. It’s really an angry protest song. 2FL’s YouTube festivities ~ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm5CtimB2mkZt5BluIroJpQ
someday your prince will come
someday your prince will come2FL - someday your prince will come EP15 And here we have episode 15 of 2FL’s 2020 50/50 Project. “someday your prince will come” appears to tell the tale of one who is hoping for a prince to appear and dot dot dot happily ever after and all the nursery rhyme stuff after that. Watch 2FL at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm5CtimB2mkZt5BluIroJpQ
Like2FL - Like EP14 Episode 14 in 2FL’s 2020 50/50 Project has arrived. Without any sort of warning it just appeared here and that’s how things happen in 2020. Like the way stuffed animals and pictures of people suddenly appeared and replaced people in the stands at baseball games. I predicted robots would replace people. Because stuffed animals replace enough other things already. Enough about me, see how’ve every 2FL song is conceived at YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm5CtimB2mkZt5BluIroJpQ
Thank You 666MrDoom
Thank You 666MrDoom2FL - Thank You 666MrDoom EP13 13 is a special number. 2FL celebrates the special occasion that is episode 13 in the 2020 50/50 Project with “Thank You 666MrDoom.” This one is almost an instrumental and it’s almost doom metal. There are some unintelligible vocals in there somewhere, so it’s not quite an instrumental. And it’s not authentic doom metal because we didn’t use a Gibson SG and/or an Orange amplifier. Google it. What is a 666MrDoom and why are we thanking it/them? All we know is 666MrDoom is an amazing YouTube channel we’ve discovered via the free time afforded by the global pandemic. Who knew there were so many really good doom metal bands? So much great music on the 666MrDoom channel. And nothing comes close to how fantastic music videos in that genre are. Wow! Pondering the logistics of setting up a drum kit in a forest continues to confound, but every doom band seems to make that happen at least once. Lucky for us the magic is captured on video and shared. If you know about a special woodland area somewhere with drum sets permanently installed waiting for bands to show up, keep that information to yourself. Some of us prefer to believe a band can still haul their own gear into a forest and get loud. The day 2FL acquires an SG and an Orange amp we are heading to whatever forest is closest to Los Angeles immediately. Seriously, 666MrDoom, thank you for the awesome music and videos, wherever you are.
Wear OffLife in 2FL is not without its challenges. Sometimes things seem to drag on endlessly. Like the making of episode 12 of the 2020 50/50 Project with the catchy title “Wear Off.” This song was about a woman at first. Then it became a song about LSD for some unknown reason, then a commercial on TV for an erectile dysfunction pharmaceutical seemed to take over for a minute. It’s probably not a song about LSD. What is that an acronym for, again? So many of those to learn. Our banjo player just found out what ATM means. The hard way. See it all at 2FL’s YouTube channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm5CtimB2mkZt5BluIroJpQ
You’re In My Coma
You’re In My Coma“You’re In My Coma” is the 11th song of a planned 50 original tunes written and recorded by 2FL as a part of it’s 2020 50/50 Project happening right now. As you may have gleaned from the title, “You’re In My Coma” tells the tale of a man in a coma surprised to find somebody else in his coma, too. We’re not really sure if this is fiction or nonfiction. We don’t know if a coma buddy is good news or bad news. So much we don’t know See exciting 2FL visuals at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm5CtimB2mkZt5BluIroJpQ
The Opposite of You
The Opposite of You2FL - The Opposite of You EP10 “The Opposite of You” is the 10th installment in 2FL’s 2020 50/50 Project. I’m going to take a leap here and call this a love song. It’s not a protest song and 2FL only really seems to do love songs and protest songs, so this one could go either way.
Nothing to Lose
Nothing to Lose2FL’s 2020 50/50 project appears right here right now In the form of episode number nine. This fun little number called “nothing to lose” talks about how our society has pretty much been destroyed and we don’t have anything left to lose￼. Thanks to the people in those lame red hats. If you like angry Protest Songs you might enjoy this one. See what it looks like at ~ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm5CtimB2mkZt5BluIroJpQ
Panic Attack“Panic Attack” was supposed to be the feel-good hit of the summer before a global pandemic elevated a less feel-goody song into the cultural zeitgeist. For more word salad visit the 2FL YouTube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm5CtimB2mkZt5BluIroJpQ
Smoking Gun“Smoking Gun” is another angry protest song from 2FL. Because everybody should be angry today. Really angry. What a nightmare. If you voted for that guy eat a big bag and tell everyone so we will know who you are after this is all done. It won’t be pretty. Unlike this beautiful protest song.
