Boxing by Redbox and the Chilipeppers is a Single released on August 6, 2009. It is a song about the different styles of "boxing" that phone phreaks used to be into. It is a parody of The Coloring Song by Petra.
RBCP wrote it in the mid 2000′s and finished it up in 2009. The background music mostly came from a MIDI file of the song, but he added in the drums and changed some of the sounds and layouts.
The original recording instrumental and vocals were so horrible that in 2012 he re-did it so that only the vocals were horrible.
|Red is the color of a box that's known,
For giving free calls from pay phones,
It's the perfect box for beginning phreaks,
Make them from tone dialers or mp3's,
Just as long as they are the frequency,
That will fool your telephone company.
By playing at 2600 hertz,
You could stack 50 tandems and call overseas,
It's just too bad that they're obsolete,
'Cause they stopped working in 1993,
After upgrades to switching technology.
That's been modified so that it is cloned,
It can make calls to anywhere, it even roams,
And I don't have to pay for it on my own,
It's like free nights and weekends every day,
Only there's no bill that i have to pay.
That shines down on the boy who's beige boxin',
He's been on a conference for eleven hours,
Camouflaged by bushes and lots of flowers,
Him and friends have been talking all night long,
Calling test lines and RBOCs from dusk til dawn.
Making prank calls to Wal-Marts and Auto Zones.
And he starts to think that he should probably go.
Through their driveway and back yard and down the road.
