"Cheat" as written by Rufus Moore, Brandon Howard, Marques B. Houston and Darryl Meyers....
I get violent when I'm fucked up
I get silent when I'm drugged up
I want excitement
When I don't get none I go wild

I don't know what the fuck can be done about it
If you play the game, you get nothing out of it
You'll find out for yourself tryin' to be good

You gotta cheat, cheat
No reason to play fair
Cheat, cheat
You can't get anywhere
Cheat, cheat
If you can't win

Nobody knows what the fuck they're doing
It's beyond your control and Friday night's a ruin
If you wanna survive you better learn how to lie

Don't you use their rules
They're not for you, they're for the fools
You're a fool if you don't know that
So use the rule you fucking fool

    General CommentI didn't know Rancid did a cover of this song. Like it as an original + I like Rancid, so I guess it must sound nice.

    General CommentIts pretty close to the original. Rancid is a great Clash fan, so as I. In this song MAtt Freeman do a pretty good bass solo.
