I want you so hard
I want you so good
But can you trust me?
Yes, you know you could
My friends are talkin'
And they're tellin' you

Don't waste your time 'cause the boy's bad news

My friends are talkin'
And they're tellin' you

Just leave him alone 'cause the boy's bad news

I want you so hard
I want you so good
Now take a chance, momma
You know you should
Trust your instincts and let me in
Just be my ride and I'll be my friend
My friends are talkin'
And they're tellin' you

You're wastin' your time, the boy's bad news

My friends are talkin'
And they're tellin' you

Leave him alone, 'cause it's just bad news

I want you so hard
I want you so good
But can you trust me?
Yes, you know you could
Trust your instincts and let me in
Just be my ride and I'll be my friend
My friends are talkin'
And they're tellin' you

Don't waste your time 'cause the boy's bad news

My friends are talkin'
And they're tellin' you

Just leave him alone 'cause the boy's bad news

Bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news
Ooh, the boy's bad news

    Very good song...

    I found out about the Eagles of Death Metal through Queens of the Stone Age...

    It's about how the protagonist wants to be with the woman, but his friends are telling the woman he's no good, backstabbing him, if you will...

    Jack Black has a little cameo during the chorus...

    Awesome song!

    I read in a Jesse Hughes interview how this song came to be: before they started recording DBS, he was trying to date a girl, however his friends were telling her that he was "just bad news". He decided to write a song about it and it ended up on DBS.

    ElderOblivion: Dave Grohl has a cameo as well, he's one of the patrons at the bar and he sings a part of the chorus =]

    I first heard this song in the film "John Tucker Must Die" and now the HBO series "True Blood" has used it on their soundtrack. I like the beat and the lyrics and love the singer's gravelly voice.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
