". . . someone puts you down . . . that's so high school . . ."

  • When Max Hsu (keyboards, guitar and turntables) was on the road with his former group, Church of Rhythm, he heard firsthand about issues teen-agers face . . . issues like growing up in a culture where being good-looking is valued more than being good. Around that time, he heard of a female fan whose email was Superchick11 . . . she shared this story. "The popular people at school told me that I could be part of their group if I dressed like them. The next day, I showed up with my gym clothes on over my clothes." She made her point, won her fellow students respect, and was even elected homecoming queen. This story is said to have inspired Max to start Superchick[k] and send the message to teens everywhere that it is okay to be yourself. The word Superchic[k] has become a gender-neutral term used to describe someone who isn't controlled by culture.

 

HIGH SCHOOL

Lyrics:

[chorus]
It's high school (high school),
could be (could be)
a mini me of the rest of society
there's always (always)
a prom queen (prom queen)
there'll always be, always be sororities
sadly (sadly)
some will be (some will be)
eternally keeping score for popularity
and just 'coz (just 'coz)
they all do (they all do)
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school

High school is like a big competition
beauty contest prom court is the mission
there can only be one queen, one king
everyone voting, everyone competing
but these are the rules, the way of high school
if someone puts you down, that's so high school
someone talks behind your back, that's so high school
thinking you have to get them back that's also high school

I know (I know) I'll be (I'll be) graduating early

[chorus]

High school is like the state of the nation
some people never change after graduation
believing any light you shine makes theirs lesser
they have to prove to everyone that theirs is better
these are the rules the ways of high school
if someone puts you down, that's so high school
believing their too cool for you, that's so high school
if you believe it too that's also high school

I know I'll be graduating early

[chorus]

We've all got bad yearbook photos
which we've forgot to let go
and just like acne our insecurity
should be something left with the jv
so here's to letting go of yearbook photos
things we kept that hold us down
so that was yesterday there's always tomorrow
we are tomorrow we are tomorrow

So I know I'll be graduating early

[chorus]
