  • Before his death, Jason Thirsk wrote this song about three friends who died in a car accident. This version was first released on Pennywise's self-tittled debut album Pennywise in 1991 as "Bro Hymn." After Thirsk's death, Pennywise re-wrote this song about their fallen bandmate and re-named it "Bro Hymn Tribute." >>
