Song Lyric Sunday

I missed the last two Sundays I think…bad me! Anyhow, join in on Jim’s site: https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2023/01/14/metalhead/

This week the theme is to find Metal songs. 

I typically do not like any Metal songs but I’m sure there are a few mixed in there that I can say I DID like!

Here is a list of the best 100 Metal Bands: https://digitaldreamdoor.com/pages/best_metal-art.html

I remember liking Twisted Sister:

I wanna rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)

Turn it down you say
But all I got to say to you is time and time again I say No!
No! No! No!
Tell me not to play
Well, all I got to say to when you tell me not to play I say No!
No! No! No!
So, if you ask me why I like the way I play it
There’s only one thing I can say to you

I wanna rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)

There’s a feelin’ that
I get from nothin’ else and there ain’t nothin’ in the world that makes me go!
Go! Go! Go!
Turn the power up
I’ve waited for so long so I could hear my favorite song so, let’s go!
Go! Go! Go!
When it’s like this I feel the music shootin’ through me
There’s nothin’ else that I would rather do

I wanna rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)

I wanna rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!

I wanna rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)

I wanna rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
I wanna rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)
Rock!(Rock!)

We’re Not Gonna Take It sort of has a good message embedded in there….

We’re not gonna take it
No, we ain’t gonna take it
We’re not gonna take it anymore

We’ve got the right to choose, and
There ain’t no way we’ll lose it
This is our life, this is our song
We’ll fight the powers that be, just
Don’t pick on our destiny, ’cause
You don’t know us, you don’t belong

We’re not gonna take it
No, we ain’t gonna take it
We’re not gonna take it anymore

Oh, you’re so condescending
Your call is never ending
We don’t want nothin’, not a thing from you
Your life is trite and jaded
Boring and confiscated
If that’s your best, your best won’t do

Woah-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh
We’re right (yeah)
We’re free (yeah)
We’ll fight (yeah)
You’ll see (yeah)

Whoa-whoa, we’re not gonna take it
No, we ain’t gonna take it
We’re not gonna take it anymore

We’re not gonna take it
No, we ain’t gonna take it
We’re not gonna take it anymore
No way!

Woah-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh
We’re right (yeah)
We’re free (yeah)
We’ll fight (yeah)
You’ll see (yeah)

We’re not gonna take it
No, we ain’t gonna take it
We’re not gonna take it anymore

We’re not gonna take it (no!)
No, we ain’t gonna take it
We’re not gonna take it anymore (just you try and make us)

We’re not gonna take it (come on!)
No, we ain’t gonna take it (you’re all worthless and weak)
We’re not gonna take it anymore (now drop and give me 20)

We’re not gonna take it (a pledge pin)
No, we ain’t gonna take it (on your uniform)
We’re not gonna take it anymore

  1. The other night, a radio station was playing music by sister acts, First Aid Kit etc, and the host snuck in a Twisted Sister song to see if anyone was playing attention. He got a few texts and calls 😂
