"Badd Beat" as written by and Huffman Darling....
We'll book this tour to be oh, oh so good.
We're gonna steal your guaranted shit.

Oh steer clear, we're on a wicked path.
We've got plans, wicked plans
It's the least we could do.
Cause we gotta get ours somehow.

It would be too easy making 10 percent off the tours we book for you.
So we figure we'll take as much as we can because it's not up to you.
The music the band provides brings the kids to the shows,
You know we just don't care.
There are a lot of other bands we can use if you don't want this tour.

The point is even though everyone knows,
We treat the bands like shit and nobody has the guts to speak out.
Cause they're afraid that they won't get the tours at the end of the day.

You fucking kids, you've gotta learn the golden rules.
You gotta use who you can on your way to the middle.
You only give a favor for a favor in return.
You get burned if you turn the other cheek.

We don't believe you kids are so naive to think that things could change
Cause nothing ever changes in the real world,
Oh, we're gonna drive the message home,
Cause money fills the gas tank in the van.

Oh steer clear, we're on a wicked path.
We've got plans, wicked plans
It's the least we could do.

    General Commentit sounds like the music industry speaking to the "kids", the "kids" being members of bands such as GAD. the "golden rules" of the business is to look out for yourself at other's expenses. only do favors for people if they will do you a favor in return. "use who you can on your way to the middle" meaning step on other's shoulders while working your way to the top, even though you will only make it to the middle. "you get burned if you turn the other cheek" - if you dont play by these rules, your band will get "burned" meaning you wont be successful

    GAD is obvious proof that you dont have to play by these "rules"...hell, they gave up signing to a major label because the label told them that they have to write choruses in their songs. rather than conform and give up their musical integrity, they gave a big "fuck you" to the label and stayed with fearless
