Funny / Minor Threat

  • "Cashing In" is a rare overtly humorous song in their catalog, and if you know the context, it is a pretty funny, sarcastic response to some perceived Fan Dumb: After briefly breaking up, then reuniting, the band were accused of having done so to milk their fanbase for more money.... So they closed their first post-reunion album with a song where they sarcastically admit to doing just that. The most dryly humorous passage may be "Letís raise the price at the door / How much a night, three thousand or four? / You know we'll make a million when we go on tour" - to explain the joke, if you charged $4,000 per ticket and your profits at the end of a tour were a million dollars, you would have only sold 250 tickets in total.
