well... I dunno. in the words of paul simon about not arguing with garfunkel, 
"hey, that's your opinion, and I...respect that". 

It has to do with the attitude expressed. I know we've dissected this song 
before without agreement. Mark thinks it's a sunny invitation to party. 
Now here's somebody that says it's a punk statement. What do you think? Is 
that a punk attitude or not?

"come and join the party, dress yourself to kill". not sure on that one..
