“Futurum Est Nostrum” by Scooter
The title of this track (“Futurum Est Nostrum”) translates from Latin to “it is our future”. And as to be expected with such a name, it reads sort of like one of those songs rock acts tend to put out from time-to-time asserting the strength of their generation.
Or more accurately in terms of what we’re dealing with today, this is the type where the vocalist is presenting his generation as being superior to their forefathers, even if he doesn’t go as far as to actually say it.
For instance, he makes a lofty statement like they “are the light”. But more importantly is the aforementioned idea that the future does belong to them.
So Scooter comes off as if, as generally deduced, they are identifying with the youth, despite the fact that the act is relatively aged.
But it can also responsibly be said that, even though this is a generational song, the vocalist is not talking of one based on age. Rather what he is speaking to is the “rave” generation. And he apparently holds himself and his ilk in such high regard, as possessors of the future, due to the perceived viability in the culture they practice.
