Mountain Goats – The Best Ever Death Metal Band In Denton lyrics

The Best Ever Death Metal Band out of Denton
Was a couple of guys who'd been friends since grade school
One's was named Syrus, the other was Jeff,
And they practiced twice a week in Jeff's bedroom
The Best Ever Death Metal Band out of Denton
Never settled on a name
But the top three contenders after weeks of debate
Were Satan's Fingers, and The Killers, and the Hospital Bombs

Jeff and Syrus believed in their hearts
They were headed for stage lights and lear jets and fortune and fame
So in script, they made prominent use of a pentagram,
They stencilled their drumheads and guitars with their names
And this was how Syrus got sent to the school
Where they told him he'd never be famous
And this was why Jeff, in the letters he'd write to his friend,
Helped develop a plan to get even
When you punish a person for dreaming his dream,
Don't expect him to thank you or forgive you
The Best Ever Death Metal Band out of Denton
Will in time both outpace and outlive you

Hail Satan, Hail Satan tonight
Hail Satan, Hail Hail
