"Back In The Day" as written by Joseph W. Daniels and David Scott Lucas....
Well punk is dead
And yeah you're next
But it seems no one has told you yet
So hardcore
You must be sore
You come on like a major threat
Face I know you like it
Hard 'N' straight
Face Think I'll hang around and wait
Hey old school yeah you were cool
But that was back in the day
Well take a bow
Harder than thou
You scream "Guilty" like a Judge on high
Well beat them back
The New Jacks
More than music it's a way of life
Face

    General CommentThis is my favorite Local H song. The bass is so amazing. The song seems to be along the same lines of High-Fiving Mother fucker

    General CommentIt could be talking about the death of the Hair Metal scene in the early 90's, perhaps a band who is still hanging. I don't think the "punk is dead" line at the start means the person in question is a punk rocker, but probably refferring to the fact that, at the start of the 80's everyone was saying "Punk is dead". He's basically saying to this guy "yeah, punk is dead, but you're next".
