The Decemberists The Crane Wife

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

The album was inspired by a Japanese folk tale, and centers on two song cycles, The Crane Wife and The Island, the latter inspired by William Shakespeare's The Tempest.

National Public Radio listeners voted The Crane Wife the best album of 2006

In addition to their lyrics, which often focus on historical incidents and/or folklore, the Decemberists are also well known for their eclectic live shows. Audience participation is a part of each performance, typically during encores. The band stages whimsical reenactments of sea battles and other centuries-old events, typically of regional interest, or acts out songs with members of the crowd.

Damn their lore is insane...


In late 2017, the band contributed "Ben Franklin's Song", with lyrics by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, to Miranda's monthly "Hamildrops".

The feud culminated in a December 20 guitar solo competition on Colbert's show, with lead guitarist Funk representing the band. After Colbert feigned a hand injury, Peter Frampton took over for Colbert and won an audience vote. Show guests got involved, with New York Governor-elect Eliot Spitzer and Dr. Henry Kissinger declaring, "Tonight, I think the American people won."

I liked the first three albums, but this one made me Seinfeld gif

I kind of admire their commitment to the bit of being horrifically pretentious and dweeby

it always makes me laugh when John Roderick talks on Roderick on the Line about all the times he's messed with Colin Meloy

i was steps away from getting engine driver lyrics tattooed on me at age 16 but chickened out

now the lyrics remind me of incels, thank you cowardice

sometimes i'll sing "I was made for the stage" when I'm trying to make my team laugh and loosen up before a big stressful presentation
