I vaguely remember thinking exactly what the description says at the time this came out. Don't recall this one lasting too long.

When the narrator starts with "they're hip" you know you're in for some pain.

I've listened twice, and I hear:
We're the band who knows how to rock /
Lots of fags /
Lots of suck
Yeah, its like that "blinded by the light, wrapped up like a douche" effect.

This seems like a likely place to ask: does anyone remember the name of that Ninja Turtles ripoff movie from the mid 90s that has, I think, kangaroos that travel in time or across dimensions or something and use kung fu? The villain is a really flamboyant, fabulous borderline drag queen who quotes T.S. Elliot. It was written, produced and directed by a Japanese expatriate whose name I forget. My girlfriend and I watched it back in 2001 and were blown away but forgot the title and I can't track it down.
Based on your description, I found "PRE-TEEN DIRTY-GENE KUNG-FU KANGAROOS," but that was a spoof (rip-off?) comic book that was published during TMNT's heyday.
YES, thank you memedumpster!
My girlfriend was an English major specializing in renaissance lit and modern poetry, and I thought she was going to shit her pants at the end when Fabulous Shredder says "the center cannot hold" and then explodes.
Good news, it has a sequel.
Warriors of Virtue: The Return to Tao

Anyone get a vaguely racist vibe off of these guys, as if some confused producer who was witnessing the dawn of rap and hip-hop decided that troll dolls dressed as Run DMC was a great idea?
You just described all entertainment aimed at kids in the early and mid 90's.
Executive A: "Sir, the latest Nielsen ratings indicate that the blacks and the poors watch cartoons! Probably between drug deals and thefts!"
CEO: "My GOD man, we have to make up for lost time! What do the blacks and poors like these days?"
Executive A: "Well, I remember seeing some blacks on TV wearing gold chains, and the poors, well they're really into this PUNK thing, my kids love the stuff! Well, the DID, I haven't seen them in eight years because of the restraining order from my GOD DAMN BITCH OF AN EX WIFE!!"
CEO: "Keep your head in the game! Alright, bring in the urban studies consultants and those young kids from Yale we just hired as interns, they'll have their fingers on the pulse of what's 'groovy'.
Executive A: ...
CEO: "DID I JUST SEE YOU TAKE A SWIG FROM A HIP FLASK?!!"
Executive A: *Cough* I ...
CEO: "... because there's a decanter of cognac right there on my desk, use a glass for Christ's sake, we're not animals.
Executive A: "Sorry sir, force of habit. ... habit my bitch ex wife drove me to..."
More like "SIR! The white kids are enjoying this hippity-hop with its oversized jewelry and funky fresh attitude!"
"WE MUST CO-OPT IT FOR A CRAPPY CARTOON AT ONCE!"

Bands in cartoons are always singing about themselves and how great they are. The chorus always includes at least two mentions of the band's name.
This is, of course, a tribute to the classic Beatles single, "Hey Dudes, Check it Out We're the Beatles," where the boys each introduce themselves, their instrument, and the mystic power beast which gives them each control over one of the elements. Although the song is credited to John and Paul, many historians think it was actually written by George's familiar, Gregor the Eagle of Fire. George's ability to combine with the eagle into order to become a flying flame robot caused tension with in the band, although it was undoubtedly an asset in their struggles to save 1960's Liverpool from the forces of Lord Darque and his Spider-Beasts.
Good thing they did. Lord Darque's band sucked. There wasn't ONE member of the Arachnos who was worth a shit. Totally cookie cutter.
Interesting side note: The battle to rescue Princess Alexandra from Darque during the dedication of the Silver Jubilee Bridge in 1961 stands as the first time a laser was used during a rock performance. It also marks the first and only time a SUPER laser was fired during a performance, AND the only recorded instance of a super laser being deflected by the power of music.
I think some teenage girls (who likes the Beatles) posted a shitty comic about that on DeviantART!
