Song of the Day: Rocket Scientist by Teddybears (feat. Eve)

Rocket Scientist is the first track from Devil’s Music the sixth studio album by Swedish band Teddybears.

Lyrics:

I’m not a rocket scientist
I rock the house and sign the tits
And that’s it

Don’t take no astrophysicist
To make your ass throw fits
Now sistas kick it

I keep it cool like Eskimo chicks on Discovery Channel
I’m hot like Telemundo chicas on a solar panel

See me on daytime TV chillin’ in my Bob Marley tee
I’ll slap you silly, I’m from Philly
I’m not sorry, that’s me

I am the robot Elvis rockin’ my bionic pelvis
I’m technotronic sippin’ vodka tonics (yeah, I’m selfish)
I am the killer shakin’ up some old rock and roll fool
Them drum machines ain’t got no soul

I’m not a rocket scientist
I rock the house and sign the tits
And that’s it (that’s it, y’all)

Don’t take no astrophysicist
To make your ass throw fits
Now sistas kick it

This is mission control, what is your status? Super bitchin’
We read you loud and clear, permission’s go to hit ignition
We gettin’ static, please repeat your last confirmed position
I’m ten feet tall and solid gold and I demand submission

I am the robot Elvis rockin’ my bionic pelvis
I’m technotronic sippin’ vodka tonics (yeah, I’m selfish)
I am the killer shakin’ up some old rock and roll fool
Them drum machines ain’t got no soul

I am the robot Elvis rockin’ my bionic pelvis
I’m technotronic sippin’ vodka tonics (yeah, I’m selfish)
I am the killer shakin’ up some old rock and roll fool
Them drum machines ain’t got no soul

I am the robot Elvis rockin’ my bionic pelvis
I’m technotronic sippin’ vodka tonics (yeah, I’m selfish)
I am the killer shakin’ up some old rock and roll fool
Them drum machines ain’t got no soul

Teddybears (formerly Teddybears STHLM) is a Swedish band formed in 1991, known for mixing pop, rock, hip-hop, electronica, reggae, punk and many other genres.
Teddybears began as a grindcore group called Skull. As for the name Teddybears, Joakim Åhlund says, “If you’re familiar with the Swedish or Norwegian black metal scene, you know back then every band was called things like ‘Corpse Grinder From Hell’. So we called ourselves the Teddybears as an ‘anti’ thing. We were the hardest rocking [band] in Sweden and we’re calling ourselves the Teddybears.” The band members started to wear large bear masks in album art and promotional photographs sometime after 2006, before that they appeared in concert and on photos without disguises.  The band initially consisted of Patrik Arve and brothers Joakim and Klas Åhlund, before drummer Olsson joined them. They released their debut album You Are Teddybears in 1993 and their second album, titled I Can’t Believe It’s Teddybears STHLMfollowed in 1996. Their third album Rock ‘n’ Roll Highschool came out in 2000 and consisted of electronic elements, which were a departure from the band’s previous hardcore sound. A fourth album, Fresh, was released in 2005 and included the singles “Cobrastyle” and “Hey Boy”.
