Pop Goes the Evil inspires a kind of smile you can't replicate in a mirror. It's the kind of smile that stems from the gut. It grows from the seldom felt feeling of true delight and satisfaction. It comes from the darkness that you've been lead to believe is wrong and undesirable. The truth is that light and darkness, black and white, are one in the same. True happiness begins with utter darkness and radiates the brightest light. It's the same color, just different shades. It's the color of life, love, and happiness. It's the color of Pop Goes the Evil, and it's the color of you.
Pop Goes the Evil started with one man and his sorrow. After being beaten almost to death by misery and woe, he walked out of hell, cut his hair, and grew a smile. Sometimes you have to pretend to be who you want to be until it becomes a reality. Such was the birth of his love for himself. After learning to love himself, he found he was able to truly love others. He wanted to share this wonderful feeling, this simple mantra, "Be Yourself". Music became the medium.
While not the meaning, it is the means, and the music is the most. It's not rock or pop. It's love and happiness. It's more feeling than sound, more story than song. It's sexual. It's taboo. It's inspirational. It's remembering to dance, not dancing to forget. It's not let's ignore it, it's let's embrace it. Let's glorify it. Let's be proud of it. It's fun because it makes you happy. It's unforgettable because it's real. It's fucking beautiful.
This is not a cult. This is not a lie. This is not money. This is not a one night stand. This is not a trend. This is not a joke. This is not a religion. This is not a band. This is not the radio. This is not your television. This is not a commercial. This is not fear. This is not jealousy. This is not a crime. This is not decomposable. This is not the end. This is me. This is you. This is us. This is now.
