"Buck Rogers" is a song performed by the English cock band Feeder. They practise in Grant Nicholas' moms basement every tuesday if he has finished his homework that night, and they get to practise on Wednesday too but sometimes they don't get to because band drummer, Karl Argentina, is often grounded for not doing his chores. The band used to have 4 members until the bassoonist was sacked for taking up the hobby of smoking as Grant's mom doesn't allow smoking in her basement.

edit Song Analysis

This song was written as a progressive alternative experiment in combining emocore post-punk and thrashcore pre-jazz with classical remixes in a four over 4 time signature. Grant's unexpected modulation to the major A after the middle 8 is particularly poignant preceding a crescendo from mezzo forte to forte, not mezzo mezzo forte to mezzo forte as his style usually conveys. This is a drastic turnaround for the troubled lead singer and is probably a metaphor for the emotional turmoil suffered when his cat Whiskers was run over by his dads pimped Ford F150 truck.

One unique point about this song which laymen often gloss over is the subtle way in which bassist Taka Hong uses a Lydian mode on top of a Minor chord progression during the second verse, but not anywhere else in the song. Some experts claim that he simply played the wrong note but this was renounced by Taka himself when he struck a journalist across the face with a salmon in a sushi bar. Leading Psychics claim they foretold this event before it happened but they did not.

edit Lyrical Interpretation

The song is about the frustration lyricist Grant Nicholas felt when he had to choose the song title from the lyrics, which he has always struggled with in the past. He decided to throw away the rule book and write a song which does not actually include the title in the lyrics. He started off with the song title and then wrote a completely unrelated song round about it. He actually found this more difficult as he couldn't think of anything suitable. He had however just bought a car so decided to write about that.

Other so-called experts at Wikipedia believe the song is actually about Mr Feeder's anguish after buying his new car. He soon realised that he had made a terrible mistake when he noticed that he had in fact not bought a Jaguar, but had in fact foolishly bought a Japanese car instead. Silly Grant. Not long after, he realised that he should have bought an efficient German car, instead of a nasty Japanese one, because the lack of Torques ended up giving him bad wind - this made him a sad man.

Grant of course didn't realise this until a month after the song was released, so those so-called experts are wrong. He was heckled immensely for one metric while for confusing Japanese cars with Jaguars. Also, turns out that it was half leather and didn't even have a stereo.

edit Trivia

Grant found whilst performing this track on the album that he was physically unable to sing the entire song without the lyrics 'Buck Rogers' because he was so used to singing songs with the title in the song. In the end the only way to complete the song for the record was to add those lyrics in the post chorus then edit them out in post production. The original lyrics were masked by a distorted vocal line added later with Grant singing "Meh - meh - meh" over the top of "Buck - Ro - gers".

edit Myths

Many people believe that Feeder's drummer is from Argentina. But they are Wong. Like the bassist.

Grant Nicholas is 3 times divorced, he is not a racist.

AC/DC once toured with Feeder in the 90s.

The name Feeder was inspired by the Argentinian breakfast cereal that the band's drummer ate as a child.

Feeder once fired their bassist and needed a replacement, but they couldn't find one because so had to ask him back.

Feeder's drummer is in fact from Mexico, not Argentina. And definitely not from India.

Feeder, while performing Buck Rogers live, have a secret third verse they add which features lyrics discussing the deeper meaning of Grant's racism.

Feeder used to have to use telephone support because their drummer, Karl, was broken. Drum samples would be fed down the phone from India to the band for every gig until they got him fixed. This caused massive delays to the start of each gig as they had to wait in a queue, get a case number, and follow instructions to unplug and plug the drummer back in and diagnose the problem every time they wanted to perform. They knew they had to find a way round this problem but they didn't know Which Way. Now they have a working drummer again they don't have this problem. But if they do they will surely Rise to the occasion and combat these technical difficulties better than Paul Gilbert on speed and crystal meth.

It has been ascertained that Grant Nicholas does in fact sing the lyrics "Buck Rogers" on the official single recording of this song. People who assert this are Wong also. Like all bassists.
