Megadeth – Back In The Day lyrics

Where were you when it happened?
Where could you be found?
Were you at the front of the stage?
Or in the underground?

From sf out to Old Bridge
New York back to la
The world of metal changed forever
Back in the day

Well that was back in the day
And if you weren't there
It doesn't matter anyway
Because you wouldn't understand

Live to die and die to play
Every day and place
Leave a path of metal
Across the world from stage to stage

Well that was back in the day
And if you weren't there
It doesn't matter anyway
Because you wouldn't understand

In denim and leather
We were all part of one force
Knocked rock and roll on it's ass
And put metal on the course

This is our way of life
A life that was born free
To fellow orders how to live
Was never meant to be
Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh

Peals of thunder, sheets of lightening
The power hits the stage
The music was exciting
The mania raged
Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh

We all had the fever
Our ears started to ring
Feeding the wildfire
Consuming everything
Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh

Metals king back then
Still to this day
Others imitate or challenge
But it never goes away
Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh
