Sometimes, you want the world to know just how damn powerful you are. You’ll find that in “Truck Fulla Amps” by Self. The song, which plays at the end of the Weeds episode “Game-Played” has a lot of chaotic energy, and it’s a strong anthem with a whole lotta attitude.

Song: “Trunk Fulla Amps” by Self

Significance of the lyrics: The format is easier to describe first. It’s a declaration with a cuss at the end. (Do I sound like an English teacher that’s trying to play it safe? I am. ) That seems pretty on par with Nancy Botwin’s attitude towards life. She never  freaking cares too much about what other people think, only what they have or can do for her. (It must be nice to be so selfish, though.) We aren’t working with a lot of different lyrics here, let’s be honest. The song mentions Freddy Mercury, Glenn Danzig and Lenny Kravitz. They are all talented and command respect.To me, the song is all about what a person has and why you should kind of bow down to them and let them take the lead. We can read into this more by the fact that Nancy as Silas are both trying to make a power play, and Nancy has that bag full of explosives. (I would not want them.)
