"I had to visit a bar on the Barbary Coast, it was a horrible place with some of the worst scum on the face of the earth. Worse than Detroit."
"Now, now, lay off Detroit. Them people is livin' in Mad Max times."
"In the real world they're shuttin' Detroit down
While the boss man takes his bonus pay and jets on out of town
And DC's bailing out them bankers as the farmers auction ground
While they're living it up on Wall Street in that New York City town
Here in the real world they're shuttin' Detroit down
Here in the real world they're shuttin' Detroit down"
—John Rich, "Shuttin' Detroit Down"
It's so cold in The D
How the fuck do we 'pposed to keep peace?
—Tbaby, Cold In The Dnote
At least we're not Detroit!
