about

This one's for the "lifers" who schlep gear on trains and drive untold miles through the middle of the night just for the opportunity to set up in the back of some dirty joint and crank up. We may be broke, my brothers and sisters, but we are forever young......

lyrics

Almighty Rock & Roll

You play guitar your fingers blister
Tape 'em up and play some more
Your senior prom you've gone and missed it
Fell asleep in your headphones

You don't fit no mold
You can't be bought or sold
Don't feel like doin' what you're told
Kid don't fight it it's almighty rock and roll....

You went and took a shot at college
Flunked right out and got a job
Playing shows and painting houses
Sleeping in your friend's garage

You don't fit no mold
You can't be bought or sold
Don't feel like doin' what you're told
Kid don't fight it it's almighty rock and roll....

Spend most of my life right here in this basement
Don't need no money to feel proud
Just do me a favor cue up some Replacements
And turn that shit up really LOUD!!!

You don't fit no mold
You can't be bought or sold
Don't feel like doin' what you're told
Kid don't fight it it's almighty rock and roll
