"Let The Bad Times Roll" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
Well, the good times hide
And so do I
Out of my control
I dig a hole
I'm gonna let the bad times roll
I'm gonna let the bad times roll
If that's all the time that you've got
Then, I'd rather not
Waste my life on hold
I'm gonna let the bad times roll
I'm gonna let the bad times roll
Just add water
I'm disappointed
Just like my father
I missed the point
I need someone
not infection
Just add water
I'm disappointed
The good times hide
So will I
Watch the world roll by
From my hole
I'm gonna let the bad times roll
I'm gonna let the bad times roll

    General CommentThis song is about depression. When youre good times end what comes? The bad. After life is said and done and youve lived it the way you did, it has an outcome that you are upset or mad with. I relate to this song, cause when youre down, youre down. So just let it all hang out. Be beast, dont be yourself. Let yourself bleed, wallow in your sorrow cause you can. Dont wallow for attention wallow and be depressed cause your hurt or sad. Even blame it on your dad if you think he has something to do with the way you turned out. Screw you for teaching me my morales. I am my own pesron. And this is my sorrow song, if you dont like it then go to happy town. This is my dark corner and youre not invited. I feel like sleeping on the kitchen floor tonight, and tommorow I'll sleep in the backyard. Get the picture? Just let it all hang out. Youre depressed dont try to hide it with a fake smile. Become a beast!

    General CommentThe song is a play on the Cars "Let the Good Times Roll" which was released in 1978 when the Cars were new on the music scene. Westerberg wrote this song 20-25 years later. Perhaps as a slap to the fact that the Replacements and Westerberg never "hit the big time" like the Cars did. Westerberg is wallowing in his self pity in the song. But every Mats fan and Westerberg fan knows he DID hit the big time...we know it everytime we listen to one of his songs.
