    Default Misfits: We Are 138

    I've always had this on a homemade tape I've had since highschool and never knew the song title. I always thought he was saying "We All Want .38s".

    Anyone know if this is a movie reference or something?

    "This song is about violence and rioting. It may have been based on THX-1138, the first movie by George Lucas."

    Definetly a movie reference. I cant remeber from what movie though.

    At the part where he says " Do you think we're robot clean" I used to think he was saying " Do you think we rub our feet"

    i also read that it refers to the number of fans in the Misfits fanclub, in their early years.

    I heard it was the police call # for a lunatic/killer on the loose... ie: "we have a 138 in such and such" urban myth I guess

    I finally looked the lyrics up for this annoying song about 2 months ago after years of hearing him say douche. It was totally disappointing.

    Yes, the original lyric was written by Jerry or Doyle I think.
    It refers to the film THX-1138 where people are all numbers and such. This also happens to have been George Luca's License plate. In the movie Star Wars - Princess Lei is kept in cell 138.

    I like the Rollins/Glenn Whitman Live version of the song on Evilive best.
