"We're wild, reckless men, we're on a rampage againSomeone who is going for being a Rebellious Spirit but whose rebellion is mildly inconvenient at best, or so minor to be unnoticed at worst. This may be a fumble on the writer's part where they genuinely think the act is impressively rebellious but due to Values Dissonance the audience doesn't think so. However, usually it's used as a characterization trope to show that the character himself is either so out-of-touch or self-important that they believe they're edgy and pushing the envelope even when it's unimpressive. They may also be too timid to really commit to a truly rebellious act. Maybe they don't even really believe in their cause but just want to fit in. Compare Poke the Poodle, where someone's attempt at doing evil is similarly unimpressive. Also compare The Man Is Sticking It To The Man, where a company encourages rebellion by following their own rules and buying their products. See also Supposedly Rebellious Series, which was formerly named Rule-Abiding Rebel.
We drive with just one hand on the wheel
Danger's in our soul, we're going out of control
Swimming right after a big heavy meal"
