Buy YACHT’s “Party at the NSA” Single, Support the Electronic Frontier Foundation

August 15, 2013 | Kyle Chayka

American rock band YACHT has released a new single in response to the ubiquity of our countries’ government surveillance programs, specifically the National Security Administration. The catchy synth-driven single aptly titled “Party at the NSA” even features some surprise guitar work by popular podcaster Marc Maron.

The song’s lyrics aren’t too shabby either:

Did you read my mail again?
How do you find the time?
I lost my signal yesterday,
But it was never mine.

We don’t need no privacy.
What do you want that for?
Don’t you think it’ll spoil our fun
If you let that whistle blow?

P-P-P-Party at the NSA,
Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours a day!

There is a rainbow at the end of every P-R-I-S-M.

Be careful where you look today,
Careful what you share.
We’re gonna make history.
But it won’t know we’re there.

The world looks stranger when you look
Through electronic eyes.
There’s a place in the Beehive State
Where the network goes to die.

P-P-P-Party at the NSA,
Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours a day!

All proceeds from downloads of the new song will go towards supporting the Electronic Frontier Foundation and their mission of “defending your digital rights.” In addition, online design journal Nothing Major has partnered up with designer Tim Lahan to produce a limited-edition t-shirt to accompany the single.
