The lyrics are incorrect in the first speaking part by the Disc Jockey. He says "bumper to bumper traffic" not "low amount of traffic". Get it right Pandora!! Lol

Sorry corperation games
I love Grace Slick she rocks " Cooperation games"
I love this song! I bought the whole album just for this song. I ended up liking other songs on it as well.
Noumpire down there obviously doesn't like classical I like this song
I love this great song! Actually, it was my idol *Elvis Presley* who built the city of Rock 'n Roll and this, we all know! ; )

It's not bad. Some of the lyrics are dumb and the musicianship seems to be lacking, but the chord progression and changes in tempo are great. I'd take this over Don't Worry Be Happy or that Do Do Do a Da Da Da Police song anyday.
To be sure, slightly corny--but I still love it. Seriously though, this is a really classic song, and I was so happy when they started playing it in the 2011 Muppet movie.

This is truly the worst song of all time, hands down.

My favorite line "Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember"

I have to agree with Lauren - not a big fan of this song! But I do like Jefferson Starship - or whatever their called!
Catchy? Yes. Obnoxious? Yes. I don't have the strong reaction to it that the rest of you do, though, apparently. So much hate!
It was over played
I loved all of their different incarnations - Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship and Starship.
One of the best tunes from when I was a kid back in the 80s. We had a make-shift band and we rocked to this tune...80s all the way!
