Overall Meaning

In Screeching Weasel's song "Something Wrong," the band expresses their disillusionment with the touring lifestyle and the monotony of their performances. The lyrics reflect the frustrations and disappointments that come with the pressures of the music industry, including financial stress, lack of inspiration, and the constant presence of problematic individuals.


The opening line of "Another night, another town, another gig, another day" establishes a sense of repetition and a feeling of being trapped in an endless cycle. The band is always on the move, performing shows and trying to make ends meet, but it feels like they are stuck in the same place. The line "now I'm out of cigarettes" highlights the mundanity of everyday tasks that become magnified when living on the road.


The lyrics also touch on the relationships that develop while touring, specifically the frustration with "another stupid girl" and "another fucked up little world." These lines speak to emotional burnout and the ways in which the touring lifestyle can impact personal relationships. Overall, the song is a commentary on the struggles of being a musician and the difficulties of maintaining creativity and inspiration in the face of pressure and repetition.

another night another town another gig
Going to different places, performing gigs every night


another day of f.r. asking what the frig?
Constantly attempting to make sense of things


another stupid girl another fucked up little world
Meeting people who are difficult to deal with and in difficult situations


now i'm out of cigarettes
Running out of essentials, like nicotine


another 15 hour drive through nowhereland
Spending long, tiring hours in transit between places with nothing notable happening


another 27 bucks into the band
Investing money into the band and musical aspirations


another stupid world another fucked up little girl
Encountering more negativity and difficult people


and i've been up all night again
Unable to sleep due to constant stress and strains of touring


there must be something wrong with us
Questioning the sanity of the lifestyle, as it can be mentally exhausting
