"Bad Company (Bad Company Cover)" as written by and Paul Bernard/kirke Rodgers....
A company always on the run.
A destiny, oh it's the rising sun.
I was born
A shotgun in my hands.
Behind the gun
I'll make my final stand.
Yeah
That's why they call me

Bad company
I can't deny
Bad company
Till the day I die
Until the day I die.

Rebel souls
Deserters we've been called
Chose a gun
And threw away the song.
Now these towns
Well they all know our name
The death punch sound
Is the claim of fame.
And that's why they call me

Bad company
I cant deny
Bad company
Till the day I die [Repeat x4]

'Eye for an eye.'
'Tooth for a tooth'
'Blood for blood'
We've all gotta die

And that's why they call me
Bad company
I won't deny
Bad company
Till the day I die

    General CommentLet me just say that I think Five Finger Death Punch took song and "souped" it up with modern methods. Very cool song. The lead singer's voice travels all over the vocal spectrum covering the "high's and low's." I think this band has some awesome talent. Probably my second or third favorite song by them. Pure awesomeness that's easy on the ears.

    General CommentThis song is sick! Way better than the original. In the second stanza, on the third "Until the day I die" gives me chills every time I hear it. It is very rare to hear a cover better than the original but this one defies the odds. GOOD SHIT!

    General Commentthis song is fucking insane and really intense live. and yeah i heard the original a few times before and it wasn't really memorable. but this song really adds life and makes it a damn better song. 5FDP for life! Love for the troops as well (see 5FDP bad company video)
