Been coping a bit of Misfits as I trawl my mp3 library for ol’ timey folk songs…. Haven’t heard this song in about 10 years, but now I appreciate it a lot than I used to. We are 138.
Jerry Only told a story to a fan after the July 27, 1996 show:
“‘138’ is like people being treated as androids where you have a number instead of a name, so it’s like the human number would be a 138… We had buttons made once, they were robots with ‘138’ that looked like half human android kinda things, long before your Terminator or stuff like that.”
