  • Lyrics
  • Spinal Tap often opened their concerts with this. It's about how they're going to rock the audience - tonight.
  • This song is used in the video game Guitar Hero II. There is a special surprise at the ending of this song in that game. >>

    What a line! You seriously couldn't get away with writing that today, even for a spoof film like Spinal Tap.

  • Jeff from Austin, TxWow!! cool! this song is on Guitar Hero!! Otherwise who would have ever known about it???
    Seriously, this is an awesome song! guitar hero and those who play it are retarded.
  • Christopher from Glasgow, ScotlandThis song is about young groupies who the band is going to have sex with after the show. Tonight they'll be in another town but tonight they're going to rock them.
