From Wikipedia: This song is an example of Newman’s ambivalence toward the American Dream, as it celebrates living the dream (“look at that mountain, look at those trees”), while giving a nod to those who have been unable to fulfill the dream (“look at that bum… he’s down on his knees”). Newman also presents this dichotomy by incorporating the names of LA’s Century Boulevard, Victory Boulevard, Santa Monica Boulevard, Imperial Highway and 6th Street into the lyrics of the song. Traversing any one of these roadways from end to end will reveal some of the wealthiest and some of the poorest areas of the city. In the , after Newman says the name of each street, a crowd shouts “We love it!” Notwithstanding the arguably satiric message of the song, Newman confessed an affection for Los Angeles: referencing more of the song’s lyrics in a 2001 interview, he explained, “There’s some kind of ignorance LA has that I’m proud of. The open car and the redhead, the Beach Boys… that sounds really good to me

i know that, but there are thousands, millions of people in L.A. who were not born yet or not old enough to remember the last time the Dodgers won the World Series, the Dodgers have not won nor have they reached the World Series since 1988, almost 25 years, the reason why I brought up Lakers because the Lakers are very extremely recent, they have made the NBA Finals 7 times since the year 2000, winning 5 Championships

That’s funny this song talks about what a superficial shithole LA is but its the Kings theme. LA has a good sense of humor about itself lol

Congrats to the L.A. Kings on finally winning the Stanley Cup!!!, although i have a controversial view of L.A., it’s about damn time L.A. won a Championship in a sport other than Basketball, L.A. has been spoiled way too long by the Lakers already
