Yup, aggressive and vitriolic. I love it. In context of 1997 I’d wager they are indeed aimed straight at Oasis. On a separate note.... Man, I had forgotten how awesome it is when the drum fill comes just before the guitar solo. You really feel the power of the song crest there. The solid drum sound just fills up the room and brings a sense of relief after the building tension of all the fast-paced lyrics. Is this the most words-per-minute of any song in their catalog? Then the guitar solo helps dissipate some of that tension and suddenly the song feels a little less angry and a little more joyous somehow.
