"I Know It's Diesel" is the latest song released by Portland, Oregon based underground rapper MC Radiation. MC Radiation writes satirical verses on a wide variety of subjects, and this one is a satire at a subject not often touched on in rap music: emo kids and their lifestyle.

The song also makes reference to a number of things that would only make sense to Portlanders, such as the Buffalo Exchange (Note: I have been informed that this is actually a West coast Franchise).

Despite the occasional non-sensical verses, the overall structure of the song, together with its catchy chorus, make it a fun listen. It can be downloaded from a number of places, including:
