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!
