  • You can't kill the metal
    The metal will live on
    Punk rock tried to kill the metal
    But they failed, as they were smite to the ground
    New wave tried to kill the metal
    But they failed as they were stricken down to the ground
    Grunge tried to kill the metal
    They failed, as they were thrown to the ground

    Ah, yeah
    Ah, yeah

    No one can destroy the metal
    The metal will strike you down with a vicious blow
    We are the vanquished foes of the metal
    We tried to win, for why? We do not know

    New wave tried to destroy the metal
    But the metal had its way
    Grunge then tried to dethrone the metal
    But metal was in the way
    Punk rock tried to destroy the metal
    But metal was much too strong
    Techno tried to defile the metal
    But techno was proven wrong
    Yeah
