Bang Bang Bang

BandRockPop

Rooting their style in a vintage sound, this tightly wound group attacks the stage with their punchy, high-energy songs. With melodic writing backed by seasoned musicianship, this power trio is often compared to the Police. And, like the Police, Bang Bang Bang reminds us that rock n' roll is fun.

Biography

Michael, Jamieson & Ira met nearly ten years ago amongst the community of DC's working class musicians. Cutting their teeth in the local club scene, they've sustained a living as musical chameleons, so to speak. However, their passions run much deeper than that of mercenaries.

It's evident in the emotion and fearless exhibition of their original music that they have the potential to reach a significant level of recognition as an identifiable band within the industry. Their unique sound teases the textures of vintage punk while aimed in a fashion that’s all their own. The stories told are that of addiction, desire & illicit romance, all of which are served in the flirtatious allure of rock n' roll. They describe their music as "...our place to cut loose, play hard & have fun. Bang Bang Bang is not concerned with what others think, we're not trying to make a dollar or impress anyone. We're playing from our gut and it feels right ...it's real."

Lyrics

Merry Go Round

Written By: ira g

there is a merry go round where i'm from - and i think it still has your name on it - now and then i'll take spin if i'm in the mood - you seem to never remove yourself - merry go round and around 'til it drowns you - spinning it's web in your dizzy head - dare to look back in the past where it haunts your merry go round 'til you step off it - brother don't forget to breathe - no the breeze aint gonna be that easy - i'm gonna hold your hand - no better time to face the days behind you - no better time to stop this merry go round - there is a merry go round where i'm from - and i think it still has your name on it - now and then i'll take spin if i'm in the mood - you seem to never remove yourself - brother don't forget to breathe - no the leap aint gonna be that easy - i'm gonna hold your hand - it's bound to be a bumping landing - oh you'll be much more the man you are - love is given to the willing - lord knows you're tossed and tired - no better time to face the days behind you - no better time to stop this merry go round - no better time to stop this merry go round

Misbehave

Written By: ira g

punk rock, soul shock, all night rock n' roll - we cut a rug in the empty kitchen of a night club - you think it's all fun and games, you never loose you're appetite - it aint your cash, it aint your car, it's your fiance's - don't waste no time with small talk or flattery - i know you're cold, i heard you loud and clear the first time - you walk away but you keep coming back again and again and again - hey where's your man, i don't think that you give a damn - you don't care to hide the fact - you pay the tab and i keep laughin' - he's blowin' up your phone - you're tippin' back the champaign bottle - i think i'm hip to the compromise - you wink at me and i realize - i can't remember your name - i don't think that you give a damn - i can't remember your name - i guess i'll call you mis'behave - well you know i'm a decent guy - but if you give me my way tonight - it's gonna be something more than you expected - yeah just like that , i tell you once, don't make me tell you twice - you're the one with the fiance offering me the ride - you don't care to hide the fact - you pay the tab and i keep laughin' - he's blowin' up your phone - you're tippin' back the champaign bottle - i think i'm hip to the compromise - you wink at me and i realize - i can't remember your name - i don't think that you give a damn - i can't remember your name - i guess i'll call you mis'behave - i can't remember your name - i don't think that you give a damn - i'm gonna pour it all out there i don't care if i distort the microphone...
