Oh, did you need some perspective for the lyrics to this song? The Warriors
is a film that tells the story of nine members of a New York street gang known as the "Coney Island Warriors," who are part of a plot to unite every single street gang into an army capable of ruling New York, but who are later framed for the gang leader's murder and subsequently have to make their way across the city while being hunted by police and gangs alike. Pretty heavy material for the same guy who gave us "Life's Been Good
The film The Warriors
has achieved cult classic status, even spawning a video game of the same title, released by Rockstar Games on October 17, 2005. Twenty-five years after the film!
