The Best Ever Death Metal Band Out Of Denton

by The Mountain Goats

Capo V


The best ever death metal band out of Denton
Was a couple of guys, who'd been friends since grade school
One was named Cyrus, the other was Jeff
And they practised twice a week in Jeff's bedroom
The best ever death metal band out of Denton
Never settled on a name
But the top three contenders, after weeks of debate
Were Satan's Fingers, and The Killers and The Hospital Bombers

/ D - / G A / : {end with riff x2}

Jeff and Cyrus believed in their hearts they were headed
For stage lights and Lear jets, and fortune and fame
So in script that made prominent use of the pentagram
They stenciled their drumheads and guitars with their names

And this was how Cyrus got sent to the school
Where they told him he'd never be famous
And this was why Jeff, in the letters he'd write to his friend
Helped develop a plan to get even

/ G A / D G / :

When you punish a person for dreaming his dream
Don't expect him to thank or forgive you
The best ever death metal band out of Denton
Will in time both outpace and outlive you

{with riff}
Hail Satan!
Hail Satan, tonight!
Hail Satan!
Hail, hail!
