  • Enter the arena and hit the lights
    Step up now you're in for a ride
    This is war, ain't no fun and games
    We get it up, you go down in flames
    Party time, going down
    You better not mess us around
    The stakes are rich, take a hit or stay
    The price is high, someone's gonna pay

    Heads I win, tails you lose
    Out of my way I'm coming through
    Roll the dice don't think twice
    And we crush, crush'em

    Looking for trouble, now you've found it
    You're a drum and we're gonna pound it
    Last one standing wins the fight
    Hear us scream and shout all night
    Down on the floor and eat the grit
    This is gonna hurt a little bit
    Heads I win, tails you lose
    Out of my way I'm coming through
    Roll the dice don't think twice
    And we crush, Crush'em
    Now we lay you down to rest
    You'll never be more than second best
    Step inside you're in for a ride
    And we crush, crush'em

    Crush, crush, crush
    Don't need reason, don't want names
    Just a John Doe to put to shame
    Step aside let me explain
    The name of the game is pain
    Now we've found you
    We're gonna pound you
    We're gonna beat you
    Gonna defeat you
    We're gonna bust you
    We're gonna crush you
    We're gonna crush'em

    Heads I win, tails you lose
    Out of my way I'm coming through
    Roll the dice don't think twice
    And we crush, crush'em
    Now we lay you down to rest
    You'll never be more than second best
    Step inside you're in for a ride
    And we crush, crush'em

    Crush, crush, crush, crush'em
    Crush, crush, crush, crush'em
    Crush, crush, crush, crush'em
    Crush, crush, crush, crush'em

    Crush, crush, crush, crush'em
    Crush, crush, crush, crush'em
    Crush, crush, crush, crush'em Writer/s: BUD PRAGER, DAVE MUSTAINE, MARTY FRIEDMAN

  • Dan Gillespy. from Courtenay Bc.A very very super good and a very super cool song that deserved more credit than it got.
  • Jason from Denver, CoThis should be the official song of the Colrado Crush arena football team
  • Ringgo from Montclair, CaYou guys are mostly right on your comments. The wrestler Goldberg used it for a bit when he was in the now-dead WCW promotion; it was also the theme for "Universal Soldier: The Return" (and i dont like that movie, BTW..i wanted Lundgren back somehow..anyways...) and yeah, i dont think Dave would want it turning the way it is now. Cool tune, though
  • Amd from Colorado Springs, CoThis song is the one that dave regrets the most. He originally came up with the idea of an anthem for hockey, but the song was quickly put into the hands of the exects that made the record, and it ended up sucking pretty bad.
  • Snake from Custer , SdI heard it was written for the wrestler Goldberg
  • Steven from Middleboro, Maactully it was written for the nfl to use in commercials and other things like that.
  • Wilfred from Melbourne, AustraliaWas used in the closing credits of the Jean-Claude Van Damme film, "Universal Solider: The Return".
