"Wannabe in LA" as written by Jessie Everett Hughes and Josh Homme....
I came to L.A. to be rock and roll
Along the way I had to sell my soul
I made some good friends that make me say
I really wannabe in L.A.

I took the time to get to Beverly
Laid some rocket tape roll on the 180
Allen and Natasha always make me say
I really wannabe in L.A.

( I really wannabe in L.A wahahoo)
( I really wannabe in L.A wahahoo)
( I really wannabe in L.A wahahoo)

I take the city in the dead of night
I'm burning gas until I feel all right
The sunset honeys always make me say
I really wannabe in L.A.

I came to L.A. to be rock and roll
Along the way I had to sell my soul
I made some good friends that make me say
I really wannabe in L.A.

    General Comment"Wannabe in L.A." is the first single from the Eagles of Death Metal's third studio album Heart On. It reached number 38 on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart.
    Hughes credits inspiration to the song on drummer Joey Castillo:
    "Dude, listen. I’m the fuckin luckiest hillbilly on the face of the Earth to be in this touring band right now, with this cast of criminals. Joey Castillo… he’s one of the fuckin reasons I wrote Wannabe In L.A., dude. Cause L.A. is the great irony of my life. How it is that I came to the phoniest fucking environment ever made by man, Hollywood, and was able to find the best examples of friendship, integrity, truth… I was able to find role models and a family of friends who’ve looked out for me above and beyond anything I’ve ever experienced in my life. That shit doesn’t happen everyday, and you’d be an asshole to miss that."
    The song is featured in the video game Midnight Club: Los Angeles which was released seven days before the song was released. It can also be heard in the video games MLB 09: The Show, Colin McRae: Dirt 2, and is a playable selection in Guitar Hero 5 .
    The music video contains two versions directed by Liam Lynch. The Standard version is the original version and the Pins version uses CGI pins recreating images from the original music video.
