Well I'm an axegrinder Piledriver
Mother says that I never never mind her
Got no brains I'm insane
Teacher says that I'm one big pain
I'm like a laser 6-streamin' razor
I got a mouth like an alligator
I want it louder
More power
I'm gonna rock ya till it strikes the hour

Bang your head! Metal Health'll drive you mad
Band your head! Metal Health'll drive you mad

Well I'm remonstrated
Outdated I really want to be over-rated
I'm a finder and I'm a keeper
I'm not a loser and I ain't no weeper
I got the boys to make the noise
Won't ever let up
Hope it annoys you
Join the pack
Fill the crack
Well now you're here
There's no way back

Bang your head! Metal Health'll drive you mad
Bang your head! Metal Health'll drive you mad

Metal Health'll cure your crazy
Metal Health'll cure your mad
Metal Health is what we all need
It's what you have to have


Bang your head
Wake the dead
We're all metal mad
It's all you have
So bang your head
And raise the dead
Oh yeah!
Metal Health
It's not too bad
Bad Bad

Oh get your straight-jackets on tonight Oh
Bang your head! Metal health'll drive you mad
The bad boys are gonna set you right Rock on Rock on Rock on
Bang your head! Metal health'll drive you mad
Bang your head!

    General Commenti don't know this song, i only wanted to know something about QIET RIOT, a band which i only knew by name till this point in time) only know what i looked up at AMAZON.COM:

    there are two albums by QUIET RIOT called METAL HEALTH and GREATEST HITS with the same song on it:

    Bang Your Head (Metal Health). For the love of god, people.

    But, fair as i am, i looked it up at the CDDB (gracenote.com/music/…). It lists over 20 QUIET RIOT songs called METAL HEALTH and only 1 called BANG YOUR HEAD. 3 songs in this database carry a double title with brackets.

    i don't know why i post this, i am too amiable or tired, i suppose. good night

    General Commentthe song IS called Metal Heath. if you look on the back cover of the 1983 record entitled METAL HEALTH, track one on side one is called METAL HEALTH. no brackets or anything else.
