You Can’t Bring Me Down dei Suicidal Tendencies

I Suicidal Tendencies fanno parte di quelle band che ho perso di vista negli anni ’90, ma che leggo essere ancora in attività. In quella decade, fecero capolino nella scena trash, anche se avevano elementi appena accennati di quella corrente metal. In comune, avevano soprattutto il fatto di essere ascoltati dagli skater durante le loro evoluzioni o contribuire ai lividi dei pogatori in pista.

E se mi chiedeste qual è il pezzo che ricordo di più, non potrei che rispondervi You Can’t Bring Me Down, la loro hit del 1990. La cosa buffa è che anche una delle band che ho visto dal vivo, durante il loro tour con i Guns n’ Roses. Eh sì, o Suicidal Tendencies aprivano il concerto dei Guns e suonavano prima di Brian May.
Vi lascio con testo e video di You Can’t Bring Me Down, e se avete altre notizie, scrivetele pure nei commenti.

You Can’t Bring Me Down

What the hell’s going on around here?

First off-let’s take it from the start
Straight out-can’t change what’s in my heart
No one-can tear my beliefs apart, you can’t bring me

You ain’t-never seen no one like me
Prevail-regardless what the cost might be
Power-flows inside of me, you can’t bring me

Never-fall as long as I try
Refuse-to be a part of your lie
Even-if it means I die, you can’t bring me

You…can’t…bring…me…down!

Who the hell you calling crazy? You wouldn’t know what crazy was
If Charles Manson was eating fruit loops on your front porch….

Time out-let’s get something clear
I speak-more truth than you want to hear
Scapegoat-to cover up your fear, you can’t bring me

You ain’t-never seen so much might
Fight for-what I know is right
What up-you got yourself a fight, you can’t bring me

Stand up-we’ll all sing along
Together-ain’t nothin’ as strong
Won’t quit-we ain’t in the wrong, you can’t bring me

You…can’t…bring…me…down!

Bring me down-you can’t bring me down!
Bring me down-you can’t bring me down, no!
Bring me down-you can’t bring me down!
Bring me down-you can’t bring me down, you can’t bring me down!

Tell them what’s up Rocky!

You…can’t…bring…me…down!

Bring me down-you can’t bring me down!
Bring me down-you can’t bring me down, no!
Bring me down-you can’t bring me down!
Bring me down-you can’t bring me down, you can’t bring me down!

So why you trying to bring me?
Well you can’t bring me down…No, no, no, no
Can’t bring me down….No, no, no, no, no, no
Can’t bring me down….No, no, no, no, no, no
Can’t bring me down….No, no, no, no, no, no
So why you trying to bring?
Well you can’t bring me down

Just cause you don’t understand what’s going on don’t mean it don’t make no sense
And just cause you don’t like it, don’t mean it ain’t no good
And let me tell you something;

Before you go taking a walk in my world
You better take a look at the real world
Cause this ain’t no Mister Roger’s Neighborhood

Can you say “feel like shit”?
Yea maybe sometimes I do feel like shit
I ain’t happy ‘bout it, but I’d rather feel like shit than be full of shit!

And if I offended you, oh I’m sorry…
But maybe you need to be offended
But here’s my apology and one more thing…fuck you!

Cos you…can’t…bring…me…down!

Bring me down-you can’t bring me down!
Bring me down-you can’t bring me down, no!
Bring me down-you can’t bring me down!
Bring me down-you can’t bring me down!
Bring me down-you can’t bring me down, no!
Bring me down-you can’t bring me down, no!
Bring me down-you can’t bring me down, you can’t bring me down!

Can’t bring me down!
Can’t bring me down!
Can’t bring me down!

Suicidal!

    Mi hai appena ricordato 2 cose, la prima è che a Modena a vedere i guns ormai 22 anni fa c0ero anch’io e la seconda è che i Suicidal Tendences mi hanno sempre fatto scarezza! 🙂

    1. Oddio, tra loro e Brian May, ho preferito di gran lunga loro 😀
