Cut Your Hair - Pavement

Cut Your Hair

Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain
indie indie rock 90s Lo-Fi alternative


"Cut Your Hair" is a song by American rock band Pavement from their second album, Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. It was written by Pavement songwriter and lead singer Stephen Malkmus. The song snidely attacks the importance of image in the music industry.[citation needed] In one verse, Malkmus sarcastically recites a fictitious ad looking for a musician to join a band: "advertising looks and chops a must/ no big hair". The song was released as a single and became the band's best-selling and most popular song. Both B-sides are included on the reissue Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain: LA's Desert Origins. The unlisted B-side track on the 12" version of the single is an instrumental recording of "Rain Ammunition," and has never been reissued. In May 2007, NME magazine placed "Cut Your Hair" at number 28 in its list of the 50 Greatest Indie Anthems Ever.


Pavement are an American indie rock band that formed in Stockton, California in 1989. For most of the period to 1999, the band consisted of Stephen Malkmus (vocals, guitar), Scott "Spiral Stairs" Kannberg (guitar, vocals), Mark Ibold (bass), Steve West (drums) and Bob Nastanovich (percussion, vocals). During that period, and since, they have frequently been described as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the American underground of the '90s. Show more ...

Cut Your Hair - Pavement

Darlin' don't you go and cut your hair

Do you think it's gonna make him change?

"i'm just a boy with a new haircut"

And that's a pretty nice haircut

Charge it like a puzzle, hit me wearin' muzzles

Hesitate to die, look around, around, the second drummer's drowned

His telephone is found



Music scene is crazy, bands start up each and every day

I saw another one just the other day

A special new band

I remember lying

I don't remember a line

I don't remember a word

But I don't care, I care, I really don't care

Did you see the drummer's hair?



Advertising looks and chops a must

No big hair!!

Songs mean a lot

When songs are bought

And so are you-

Bitch, rant down to the practice room

Attention and fame so

Career, career, career....
