A homage to all those rebel songs. Available on iTunes and Spotify 3/18.

lyrics

Mama said turn that hell-bent rock 'n roll noise down
You ain't gonna listen to that garbage in this house
So when the lights went out
I'd sneak those headphones on
Sing along in my head to all them rebel songs

The Stones and The Band and the drink in my hand
And that don't give a damn, yeah you hold onto it
Highway to Hell and Stairway to Heaven
Up to eleven in Daddy's old Buick
Saved my soul and cut right through it
Thank God for devil music

Saved up all summer for a fifty dollar pawn shop shit guitar
Jeff's mom, she was cool enough to let us be garage band stars
We were bad, we were loud
Had all the neighbors saying
Turn it off, cut it out
Ah, but we kept playing

The Stones and The Band and the drink in my hand
And that don't give a damn, yeah you hold onto it
Highway to Hell and Stairway to Heaven
Up to eleven, it's so therapeutic
Saved my soul and cut right through it
Thank God for devil music

Thank God for The Stones and The Band and the drink in my hand
And that don't give a damn, yeah you hold onto it
Highway to Hell and Stairway to Heaven
Up to eleven and that's when I knew it
Saved my soul and cut right through it
I still get high when I listen to it
Thank God for devil music
