"Dose Of Thunder" as written by Paul Westerberg, Tommy Stinson and Chris Mars....
Goin' down the the pool hall
Lookin' for the eight ball
When it comes, when it comes
Only want a little, you need a ton
Gimme one good dose of thunder
Gimme one good dose of thunder

Gimme, gimme in a hurry
Texas added to Missouri
When it comes, when it comes
Only takes a little 'til you want a ton
One good dose of thunder
Gimme one good dose of thunder
I can feel it start to rumble

When it comes, when it comes
It only takes a little 'til you need a ton
Gimme one good dose of thunder
Gimme one good dose of thunder
And I can feel it, oh
Gimme one good dose of thunder
Gimme one good dose of thunder
I can feel it start to rumble

    General CommentActually, the song is about Johnny Thunders, so it is kinda about drugs... Also see 'Johnny's Gonna Die' for another great tribute to Thunders

    My InterpretationWord play. Listening to Johnny Thunders as simile for cocaine.

    General CommentProbably dual meaning. The Mats worshiped Johnny Thunders, like they did Alex Chilton. So, "dose of thunder" on the surface could sound like a tribute to Johnny, them wanting to hear his music. However, the context does seem to imply they are talking about narcotics.
