Liar

by

Rollins Band



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Henry Rollins performs this song from the perspective of a guy with a great deal of anger who preys on vulnerable women. He tells them exactly what they want to hear and gains their trust, but in the end he will hurt them, because he's a liar. Rollins delivers the verses in his spoken-word style, then explodes into the chorus, displaying the different personalities of the character.
This became the best-known song from the Rollins Band. It gained success after appearing on the MTV show Beavis and Butthead and going into moderate rotation on MTV. (thanks, Austin - Smallsville, New England)

Mike Watt of the Minutemen tells the story of the song that became an Indie Rock touchstone. It's also the story of what Mike calls "The Movement."

Justin wrote the classic "Nights In White Satin," but his fondest musical memories are from a different decade.

Did Marvin try out with the Detroit Lions? Did he fake crazy to get out of military service? And what about the cross-dressing?
