Barroom Hero

Album: Do Or Die (1998)
  • This song is a tribute to the drunken fool at the bar who starts fights with people twice bigger than him for no reason. Although he's a complete idiot, he's respected for his drunken courage and looked at as a hero. >>

  • Willie from ScottsdaleThis song played during the closing credit of the Afghanistan War documentary "Restrepo." The lyrics are a tad off, but the spirit of Battle Company and the DM's fighter is close. RIP Juan "Doc" Restrepo.
  • Sarah from Bedford, NsLoL I'm glad there's still bands out there that write songs about other things then just drugs and ex girlfriends. Great song!
  • Johnny from Ft Worth, TxAaaah, beer muscles. Love the DKM's
