Billionaire Boys Club is about honest, catchy, guitar-driven/harmony-laden rock with street credibility. They have a sound and image that go hand-in-hand, but they are definitely not all style and no substance.

Biography

BILLIONAIRE BOYS CLUB, or the BBC, as some say, was formed in the summer of 2002 by four like-minded young men, tired of being told what was cool and hell-bent on having their own say. Bored with the same lame sounds being peddled over the airwaves, our friends in Billionaire Boys Club resolved to be at the forefront of a revolution years overdue—the re-birth of Rock & Roll. What they stand for is simple: honest, catchy, guitar-driven/harmony-laden rock with street credibility. They have a sound and image that go hand-in-hand.

As luck would have it, the boys of the BBC have recently completed a four song EP that showcases their unique style and sound. From the breakneck, hyper-speed assault of “Don’t You Wanna” to the pristine chorus harmonies of the mid-tempo rocker “Quittin’ Drinking” to the chunk and groove of the powerful “Super OK”, Billionaire Boys Club display an understanding and love of the things that make for great rock music. They believe that the music they make can be appreciated and enjoyed by just about anyone with an open mind and an ear for tuneful rock.

TV? Yes, BBC has been there too. The Billionaire Boys Club has done a number of television appearances in it’s existence as one of the East Coast’s most hard rockin’ bands. With two appearances on NBC’s late night talk show “Last Call With Carson Daly”, several appearances on NYC’s Time Warner Cable show, “Fearless TV”, and a 13 week run on VH1’s commercial for “The Best Week Ever”, BBC is all over the airwaves.

The BBC has conquered many of the most famous venues in their native Northeast. CBGB, Starland Ballroom, the Mercury Lounge, Arlene Grocery, Maxwell's & the Stone Pony have all have played eager hosts to the boys. They have toured extensively on the east and west coasts playing prominent venues in Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Diego, and many other cities, and have had the opportunity to play with some of their favorite contemporaries, including: Fountains of Wayne, Superdrag, Marvelous 3, Dramarama, OK Go, Reel Big Fish, the Smithereens, Longwave, The Dandy Warhols, and many others.

Billionaire Boys Club is coming to a town and venue near you in the very near future. They look forward to the opportunity to prove themselves and to rock your god damned face off. Don’t believe? Come and see and tell them what you think--they’ll be happy to see you.

Lyrics

Super OK

Written By: Billionaire Boys Club

Woke up this morning falling off the wrong side of the bed
I reached for my lighter and I lit my first cigarette

Stumbled down the stairs I was looking for my cellular phone
To call my baby but my baby, well, she's never at home
She's always bitchin' but it's better off just being alone
But that's OK there comes a time when we all reap what we sow

(Now I'm) Super alright
I'm super OK
I don't care what you think about me, don't care what you say
Super alright
I'm super OK

Woke up on the stairs and I'm wondering how I made it home
This feeling it's alright but I could use just a little more

And last thing I remember I was mackin it to my biggest fan
She said to call her so I got her number out by the van
'Hey man you rocked tonight' she said but she still don't understand
Just how a guy like me could end up in a rock & roll band
...well Goddamn

We Used To Play Guitar

Written By: Billionaire Boys Club

I want to be different, just like everyone else
The product of my history, the future of Generation X
Well I'm a little know-it-all so don't you try and match wits
I'm smarter than I look, though it's something I'm ashamed to admit

I wear the coolest clothes and I'm hip to New York trends
This party's almost over but the fun it never ends
We used to play guitar and we�d write our stupid songs
But now you've gone too far, yeah you know where you belong
So come on... you're wrong

If you serve it up to me, you best serve it up with a smile
Take a look at yourself in the mirror once in a while
You're such a little know-it-all but you don't know shit about me
You're smarter than you look and I don't think you�d disagree

Don't You Wanna

Written By: Billionaire Boys Club

ell I found your phone number in the back of my pants
And I'll have no regrets if you recall who I am
I'll be true to you now
Come on baby, work it out, work it out

Well I'll call you on Thursday it'll be quite a thrill
If you call me on Wednesday it'll be better still
I'll be true to you now
Come on baby, show me how

She makes me feel like I'm alive
She makes me feel so good inside

Don't you wanna
Are you gonna
Don't you wanna make me bleed oh yeah
