This song is still just as apt

June 10, 2024

It’s been fourteen years since Flobots released Handlebars, and it’s just as relevant now as it was then.

Starting with a fun, almost childish brag about riding a bike, the song constantly escalates until it becomes about control, power and war.

We said it’s just as relevant now as then, with it’s themes of sliding into authoritarianism and militarism, but let’s face it, this song has been relevant for thousands of years.

A song about how humans have the capacity for great creativity and great destruction and tend to choose the latter.
