Boys in Bands Lyrics

Everybody’s down and feeling it tonight
The rhythm is a moving and the mood is right
A little guy on guy action, up there on the stage
We are in our fantasy land and don’t wanna behave

We can’t help it, moving to the song
We can’t control it, oh we turn them on
We give all our favorite bands electricity
They feed off of all our, all our energy

We are super
We are super fans
Of those boys in bands oh yes
Those boys in bands
Ya gotta gotta gotta gotta
Gotta gotta love
Those boys in bands
Boys in bands, boys in bands
Ya gotta gotta gotta gotta
Gotta gotta gotta gotta
Gotta gotta gotta gotta
Gotta gotta gotta gotta
Love, those boys in bands

Everybody knows
We go to show after show
We just can’t get enough
We wanna watch ‘em all grow
Like a mommy watches her baby
Get bigger and bigger and bigger
But we bounce around those
Boys in bands with
Moves just like a Tigger

We can’t help it
Moving to the song
We can’t control it
Oh we cheer them on
Maybe we’ll OD on them
We’ll have to take our chance
But we don’t think we ever will
Cuz we are super fans

We are super
We are super fans
Of those boys in bands oh yes
Those boys in bands
Ya gotta gotta gotta gotta
Gotta gotta love
Those boys in bands
Boys in bands, boys in bands
Ya gotta gotta gotta gotta
Gotta gotta gotta gotta
Gotta gotta gotta gotta
Gotta gotta gotta gotta
Love, those boys in bands

Ya gotta love those
Boys and their bands
Ya gotta love a man
And his band

Story Behind This Song

Following my Surfer Boys song, I wrote another song about Boys, specifically Boys in Bands. This song was inspired by Iration, as I’m just a huge fan of them personally and they have amazing music! They even wrote a song about their fans called “Automatic”. Therefore when I heard that song, I was like, well I’m gonna write a song about Iration and those boys in bands and the fans that fuel them – it’s a team effort! I injected some verbiage from Iration’s tunes like referencing the word electricity as a nod to their song “Electricity” and adding the phrase “the mood is right” from their “Summer Nights” song. The “guy on guy’ action was in reference to a question I had asked the band when they used to do their fan Q&A’s with Fanbridge. I asked Adam and Micah if there was some sort of bromance going on between them as they were totally jamming face to face at a show, just getting down with each other to the music and getting it on!  I love when guys in bands do that!

This song was one of the tunes I had the opportunity to record at Castaway 7 with J.P Hesser, who had produced lots of songs for Iration. It was super cool and surprising that the bassist Adam and drummer Joe happened to stop by and say hi while I was recording there. It was funny when Adam asked me, is that “moves just like a tigger” line in your song a reference to “Moves Like Jagger” from Maroon 5. I just smiled inside when he asked that because he got it, and I said, yep you got it. I almost wanted to say, yep, you got it dude with a thumbs up sign like Michelle from Full House would always say but I restrained myself. 

Oh, and just in case you’re curious, I think I say the word “gotta” about 46 times in this song, so if you don’t get the message that ya just “gotta” love those boys in bands, then I don’t know what else I can say to get through to ya! I feel like when I’m saying gotta, it’s almost like a “Yabba Yabba Doo” kind of thing from the Flintstones, it just fell into place in the song and I just couldn’t stop saying it, ha!

This song is so appropriate to most all of the boys in bands out there and even girls in bands! It’s just amazing to go see a show and the energy that happens and how the audience and the band just feed off each other! Live music is the best!
