hackers and crackers

After a few weeks of silence, the Musical Geek Friday is back! This time it's a song dedicated to all the hackers and the crackers!

The song is written and performed by a guy calling himself Zearle. It's very interesting to read his autobiography, where, among other crazy things, he says that during his childhood FBI was closing in on his family and his first years were spent underground, going from one small town to another. It's very interesting reading.

The Song for Hackers and Crackers was recorded in 1999 and it is included in his "Class War" music album (downloadable for free).

He says that the song was written as a praise for warez groups. Thanks to them, he was able to refine his computer skills and get software for making music.

The music tracks he uses in his songs are mostly created by unsigned hiphop beatmakers with R&B/soul, reggae, folk, and acid jazz backgrounds.

This song is NSFW -- Not Suitable for Work, as it contains explicit language. Though, you can still listen to it on your headphones :)

Contextually, this song is similar to another song I posted on Musical Geek Friday #2: Leech Access is Coming At You.

Here it is! Song for Hackers and Crackers:

Song lyrics (I censored the explicit language, see the 'download lyrics' link at above for uncensored version):

UH! This is dedicated to all the hackers and the crackers.
You know what i'm sayin'.
If you hear this, want you to.. bump this and do your dirt dog, do your dirt.

You can fill a stadium with cats using s**t cracked by Radium.
Liquid Sky will never die.
Before the crackers and the hackers, life was wacker.
Software we could never stack for.
We were floored by the evil hoards.
All the best s**t we could never afford.
The internet and mp3, they set us free.
I'm downloading Windows ME right now off FTP.
You b*****s will never find me!
Because I'm everywhere, see.
Yo dog, you got something new?
Hit me off on ICQ.
I'll help you back in jive.
I got some top-notch s**t on i-drive.
You shut one site down, we multiply.
Like a phoenix from a different place we rise.
Then you got the squares;
"Yo dude, your stealing, don't you care?"
L-O-L, b***h. I got a terabyte of warez.
I like my files zip, sit, or rar.
I download seven hundred segments from a thousand sites.
I drink coffee, snort speed; I'll stay up all night.
I'll hack a companies site, and blank it white.
Ghost ISP's; Find me, please...

Dedicated to the hackers and the crackers.
This is dedicated to the hackers and the crackers.
The ones that set us free.
Thanks G for setting us free.
This is dedicated to the hackers and the crackers.

I see in binary, I speak source code.
Step on my toes, I'll post a million jpg's.
If you in a fag pose.
And your digital stance getting firewalled hoe.
Cause I'm ridin' the net and my six four (old school car sixty four is the year).
I was a dick with my 56(K).
Now with my cable -- I'm able to get that stable.
On the out my name is Ace and I'm a Leo.
On the digital highway, my name is Neo and I'm a hero.
In a flash I'll school you on burning dreamcasts.
You need some ISO's?
Let me through my hard drive rifle.
Our exchange, you could never stifle.
With a digital hug, you just caught the lovebug.
I've bootlegged your CD.
I caused the fight between UN and Jay Z.
You see G?
It's all gonna be free.
Whether we take it with force or we take it nicely.
You feel that rattle in you bones?
When I tell you we just hacked DOW Jones?
And NASDAQ leaves you fighting on your back?

Cause I'm the he who loves to hack and crack.
Cause I'm the he who loves to hack and crack.
This is dedicated to the hackers and the crackers.
Serial codes, source codes, ISO's, rar's, zip's, sit's.
This is dedicated to the hackers and the crackers.

Your encryption is primitive egyptian.
I'll do more with a 486 and a Plextor.
We've won when six billion got Athlons.
And we tell each other how to get it on.
Cyber-army's and the Pentagon were storming.
I just found out who killed JFK.
The smoking gun will have it within a day.
All the lies they've been faster.
Go check the name "truth" on Napster.
Digital-disaster.
The p****s will never find me in this matrix.
A million keyboard voices all named Morpheus.
This is dedicated to those who set me free.
Got a buzz? Your always my cuz.
Radium, if i could only say to them; Thanks.
Kalisto, you know!
Utopia, and all my digital dogs.
My netgangs, my cybergangsters, my I/O-warriors, my computercomrades.
This is for you, this is dedicated to the hackers and the crackers.
I wouldn't be able to do s**t without ya'll man.
I'll be sittin' in front of my f**king computer doing a goddamn thing, playing games.
You have all made it possible. This is dedicated to you!

The concept of the post is unique. Word stuffing and sentence framed are nice.
Pretty adequate post.
