"No Hits" as written by Stephen Gordon Mcbean, Amber Erica Webber, Joshua Mark Wells, Jeremy Victor Schmidt and Matthew Camirand....
No hits,
In the modern age.
No hits,
No hits,
On the frequencies.
No hits,
No hits,
Halt the dancing crowds.

Terror,
Terror,
Making it in the shade.
Terror,
Terror,
Won't you fall for me?
Terror,
Terror,
Have you been faking the sounds?

No hits,
In the modern age.
No hits,
On the TV screens.
Lemme holler,
Lemme holler,
Lemme holler,
Against the pop star dream.

No hits,
In the modern age.
No hits,
No hits,
On the frequencies.
No hits,
No hits,
Halt the dancing crowds.

Terror,
Terror,
Making it in the shade.
Terror,
Terror,
Won't you fall for me?
Terror,
Terror,
Have you been faking the sounds?

No hits,
In the modern age.
No hits,
On the TV screens.
Lemme holler,
Lemme holler,
Lemme holler,
Against the pop star dream.

No hits.

    Song MeaningThis one's a tough nut to crack.

    No Hits is about as far away from the mainstream of Black Mountain's oeuvre as
    I've heard, n00b as I am to their stuff. No Hits is also more open to interpretation than many of their songs; Tyrants for instance seems like it is not aiming for symbolism or multiple meanings--a great song but very direct.

    No Hits starts off so disco-fied and synth-y compared to the other 70s/grunge/grind Black Mountain is so good at, which makes me love both their more typical material as well as this even more. A conscious effort at self-mockery? Mockery of others? Then it explodes like Gut Feeling.

    No Hits could be:
    No desire for a hit song (Holler/ against the pop star dream)
    No hits on their website ("in the modern age", hey I'm the first one to comment on this AWESOME song)
    No hits off the pipe (they work with homeless and drug-addicted folks according to Wikipedia)
    No violence (terror terror) - ok I'm stretching this to make my point

    But the "Making it in the Shade" bit - reference to the Rolling Stones album, yet another Stones compilation regurgitation?
    "Have you been faking the sounds" - disillusion with the state of pop music?

    Is it a lament that they have no hope for hits (won't you fall for me?), or a cry that they would never sell out for a hit (halt the dancing crowds)? But so many great songs are like this, hard to pin down, open to multiple interpretations.

    I just want to get the ball rolling to see if anyone else can get the combination. A very simple song of few words but for me it raises nothing but questions.

    So looking forward to the Seattle show November 29th!
