I am having trouble to understand the meaning of the word "saga" in the following excerpt of a Queens of Stone Age lyrics:
How we feeling out there? How's your drive time commute?
I need a saga, what's the saga?
It's songs for the deaf, you can't even hear it
("You Think I Ain't Worth A Dollar, But I Feel Like A Millionaire"
- written by Josh Homme and Mario Lalli)
These are actually the words of a fictional radio host introducing the song, and "songs for the deaf" is the name of the album.
"Saga", in that context, doesn't seem to match any of the following meanings in The Free Dictionary:
1a. A prose narrative usually written in Iceland between 1120 and 1400, dealing with the families that first settled Iceland and their descendants, with the histories of the kings of Norway, and with the myths and legends of early Germanic gods and heroes.
1b. A modern prose narrative that resembles a saga.
- A long detailed report: recounted the saga of their family problems.
Neither it matches the definitions in Urban dictionary, supposing it is a slang.
I can only interpret that the radio host wants to listen to something epic.
