Where were you when it happened? Where could you be found? Were you at the front of the stage? Or in the underground
From SF out to Old Bridge NY back to LA The world of metal changed forever Back in the day Well that was back in the day
And if you weren't there It doesn't matter anyway Because you wouldn't understand Live to die and die to play Every day and place Leave a path of metal Across the world from stage to stage Well that was back in the day
And if you weren't there It doesn't matter anyway Because you wouldn't understand In denim and leather We were all part of one force Knocked Rock and Roll on its ass And put metal on the course
Higher! Higher! Higher! Higher!
Back in the day You weren't there It doesn't mater Because you wouldn't understand This is our way of life A life that was born free To follow orders how to live Was never meant to be Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh Peals of thunder, sheets of lighting
The power hits the stage The music was exciting The mania raged On, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh We all had the fever Our ears started to ring Feeding this wildfire Consuming everything
Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh Metal's King back then And still is this today Others imitate or challenge But it never goes away On, oh-oh, oh-oh

Ronnie Van Zant wrote the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic "Gimme Three Steps" after making the mistake of dancing with a girl whose boyfriend was in the bar and probably had a gun. He asked for a 3-step head start.
The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
