Decade Lyrics Commentary

Simply written lyrics about the treachery of the subconscious world of sleep and dreams set against a heavy metal head-pounder, Enter Sandman projects a sense of foreboding, political and social breakdown, and a bit more than a hint of child abuse. It is one brilliantly creepy song. The eerily light guitar opening, ominous enough, is […]

We had what we consider a great year at Decade Lyrics! In our first full year of operations, we finished up the year with more money than we spent! Our biggest expense as a lyrics and music website is content licensing – it’s how we are able to legally list the lyrics of 145,000+ songs […]

Are you a great beats creator and want to sell your music online to others? You would be surprised how easy it is to get started selling beats on your own. This can be a great side hustle if you make the right decisions while you start to plan to sell beats online. There are […]

We’re taking a break today from talking directly about music and it’s lyrics to focus in on the trials and tribulations of running a lyrics-themed music website spanning from 1940 to the present. No, we’re not going to sit here and lament on this website still being in the incubation stage and not making any […]

A good-sized portion of the online community contains content you probably do not want your young children seeing or interacting with. We agree here at Decade Lyrics that even a large portion of our famous lyrics database contains sentences, phrases, slang and straight-up profanity that you don’t want to hear coming out of your kids’ […]

  • Enter Sandman by Metallica ( December 29, 2021)
    Enter Sandman was written by Metallica band members James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett and is a pretty transparent song that is not that full of metaphor. The song, its lyrics and its ominous music and beat are all about nightmares and the things that go bump in the night. Besides that, one of […]
  • 99 Biker Friends ( December 14, 2021)
    Such a big man, such a little chick. I think it all goes back to your tiny Pick-up truck in the driveway, With a sticker on the window “Rest in Peace Number 3”. Tell all your friends How you put her in her place. 7 pounds of makeup Just to hide her beat up face. […]
  • Biker Like An Icon ( December 14, 2021)
    There Was A Girl Who Loved A Biker She Used To Follow Him Across America But The Biker Didn’t Like Her. She Didn’t Care, She Still Persisted Though Her Brother Said She Was Twisted And The Family Said They Wouldn’t Miss Her Anyway. She Loved The Biker Like An Icon Gazing At His Picture Everyday. […]
  • Gypsy Biker ( December 14, 2021)
    The speculators made their money on the blood you shed Your momma’s pulled the sheets up off your bed Profiteers on Jhames Street sold your shoes and clothes Ain’t nobody talkin’ because everybody knows We pulled your cycle up back the garage and polished up the chrome* Our gypsy biker coming home Sister Mary sits […]
  • Master And Servant by Depeche Mode ( December 8, 2021)
    Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan performs with a high level of sexuality on almost every single Depeche Mode song, but Master and Servant takes the feeling to new heights. There is a direct theme of outright domination and submission with parallels drawn between power dynamics and everyday life. Dave Gahan’s Master and Servant waxes philosophically about […]
  • Rotten Apple ( November 24, 2021)
    Hey Ah Na Na Innocence is over Hey Ah Na Na Over Hey Ah Na Na Ignorance is spoken Hey Ah Na Na Spoken Hey Ah Na Na Confidence is broken Hey Ah Na Na Broken Hey Ah Na Na Sustenance is stolen Hey Ah Na Na Stolen Hey Ah Na Na Arrogance is potent […]
  • Pineapple Head ( November 24, 2021)
    Detective is flat No longer is always flat out Got the number of the getaway car Didn’t get very far As lucid as hell These images moving so fast Like a fever So close to the bone I don’t feel too well And if you choose To take that path I will play you like […]
  • Apple ( November 24, 2021)
    Hi, my name is Sean Daley and you might know me from such films as “I Can’t Sing, But Neither Can You.” Haha yea, heheheh what are you lookin’ at? Don’t look at me, don’t even talk to me Oh you rap too? Heheh I should’ve known I ca, I can tell. Nah, it’s in […]
  • Apple Of Your Daddy’s Eye ( November 24, 2021)
    I remember when you were born I felt like one lucky Son of a gun And when you turned into two I was so happy When you said I love you Held you in my arms so tight I’d never forget The best years of my life Apple of your daddy’s eye Wanna be the […]
  • Get Smashed Gate Crash by Hadouken! ( November 17, 2021)
    Get Smashed Gate Crash is a party song to its core. The music video for the song is based on a very similar style to Blink 182’s The Rock Show, where the band is given a bunch of cash to blow with their friends. The video documents the group going to 4 different pubs and […]
  • Wonderwall by Oasis ( November 16, 2021)
    Wonderwall, a huge hit by Oasis in the 1990s, definitely belongs on a playlist of the most popular singalong songs. We’ve always found the actual sound of the song and vocals to be a little whiny sounding, which probably makes it so popular for singing along by both women and men. The lyrics to Wonderwall do […]
  • We Will Rock You by Queen ( November 16, 2021)
    Following an experience at a venue in the UK where fans chanted and sang the classic football anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone on their own after their performance, members of Queen wanted to come up with their own song that fans could sing, stomp or chant along with. What they noticed that night in the […]
  • Pour Some Sugar On Me by Def Leopard ( November 16, 2021)
    The year was 1987. It was a simpler time. Glam rock bands didn’t put a lot of time into hiding metaphors in their music and lyrics. The lyrics to Pour Some Sugar on Me are about pretty much what every other glam rock band’s lyrics were about in the 1980’s, having sex. Pour Some Sugar […]
  • Mr.Jones by Counting Crows ( November 16, 2021)
    When you’re first, you’re the best. Mr. Jones was the first single released by Counting Crows in 1993, and was also their biggest hit from all of their albums. The lyrics for Mr. Jones were written by lead singer Adam Duritz and guitarist David Bryson, with the other 3 Counting Crows band members getting composer […]
  • Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas ( November 16, 2021)
    Carry on Wayward Song, released in 1976, was the first major hit for Kansas. The song was a last-minute addition to the album Leftoverture. Kansas had a way of almost leaving out their biggest hits from their albums. The song Dust in the Wind, a huge hit for them and their second major hit after […]
  • Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen ( November 16, 2021)
    Bohemian Rhapsody is the kind of song that creates vivid images in your head when you listen. The song goes on in multiple chapters almost like a play, and the more you listen to it, the more curious about the song you get. The world heard this song as a great interpretation of different musical […]
  • Everlong by Foo Fighters ( November 16, 2021)
    Dave Grohl, frontman for Foo Fighters, himself has said in interviews that he wrote Everlong during one of the lowest points in his life. The time was Christmas of 1996. Dave Grohl was fresh off of a divorce from photographer Jennifer Youngblood, and was literally a homeless rock star. He had been a leading member […]
  • Bad, Bad Leroy Brown by Jim Croce ( November 15, 2021)
    Released in 1973, Bad Bad Leroy Brown is a song set in the rough section of the city of Chicago that tells the story of the “baddest man in the whole damn town.”  Unfortunately, the baddest man in town made a move on the wife of someone else who appeared to be bigger and badder […]
  • Born To Be Wild by Steppenwolf ( November 15, 2021)
    The term “heavy metal” was most likely first used in pop culture by William Burroughs in 1961, who used it in his novel The Soft Machine as a description of Uranian Willy, “the heavy metal kid.” Along with another Steppenwolf song, The Pusher, Born to Be Wild appeared on the 1969 soundtrack to Easy Rider, […]
  • Old Time Rock And Roll by Bob Seger ( November 10, 2021)
    There’s a ton of reasons why Old Time Rock & Roll belongs on every playlist that dares to call itself a list of the most popular singalong songs.  The 1978 song by Bob Seger is the most recognizable song out of his entire discography; if you grab a random person off the street (we don’t […]
