In 1993, a teenager from Newcastle penned a beautiful, droning grunge anthem with lyrics so garbled and indecipherable, he did the late Kurt Cobain proud.
This was an age before internet lyrics websites. So as far as anyone could tell, the Daniel Johns refrain in the massive Silverchair hit “Tomorrow” went: “yaaaaargle-glargle-blaaa, yaaaaargle-glargle-blaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaaaah”.
For the record, the lyrics were “very hard hard to drink”. So cut forward almost 20 years, and Johns has penned something even harder to swallow. It’s the new Qantas anthem, and instead of going “yaaaaargle-glargle-blaaa” it kinda goes “ooooh-ooooh aaaaah”.
