Rebound

Album: Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a cover of a song originally recorded by American punk band Teenage Bottlerocket. Volbeat guitarist Rob Caggiano explained to Metal Hammer: "We took them out on one of our European tours on the last album cycle and they're a really awesome band. They very much have the spirit of the Ramones in their music and we love that vibe.

    Rebound is a song that we all love, too. The lyrics are great, and it's really funny and really catchy. We'd talked about covering it in the past but for whatever reason we never got around to it. We got the news while we were in the studio that their drummer [Brandon Carlisle] had died, and that really hit us hard. So we learnt the song and recorded it as a tribute to those guys. That's the story with this song."
