El Rodeo

BandAlternativeRock

El Rodeo is an ever-changing beast. Not wanting to limit ourselves to one sound, one song may be punk based, the next psychadellic, and the next a trance-like desert rhythm. We bring our all to the stage and enjoy making music as much as we do playing it for people.

Biography

Three friends from the same high school who are now in three different colleges get together when available outside of four jobs, three girlfriends, and a multitude of other hobbies to do what they love: play music. We take our influences from bands like Kyuss, The Strokes, 31knots, The Mars Volta, and even Franz Ferdinand. We've been playing together since July of 2007 and feel we're ready to bring our sound to the masses to see what they think. Regardless of their reaction, we'll play for a room of 300 moshing teens or a sitting party of ten as long as people want to hear what we have to put out.

Lyrics

I Smell The Devil

Written By: El Rodeo

I never said that I would stick around
And if I did, I sure as hell don't mean it now

I never lead a life that I cared for much
And I never truly bled until I felt your touch

It's people like you who give girls a bad name
It's people like you who make the rest of us look sane
I can't save you and I don't wanna be your friend
I won't be there at the bitter end

"Better off dead, I been run over too many times"
That's what she said "I been run over too many times"

"I've got a whole in my head and it won't go away"
"I've been mislead by all the things that you do and say"

It's people like you who give girls a bad name
It's people like you who make the rest of us look sane
I can't save you and I don't wanna be your friend
I won't be there at the bitter end

They say the devil's in the details and that's half true
'Cause the devil is here but he's in you
I can see him in everything that you do

God's there too for all we know
But only as much as you wanna show
But I wouldn't expect him in somebody so low

Into The Kudzu

Written By: El Rodeo

80 miles per hour in the wrong lane
I told you "Don't let Bobby drive, he's insane"

No more midnight rides
I'd rather stay inside

'Cause I don't wanna die tonight

Bobby be nimble, Bobby be quick
Bobby don't know how to drive a stick

Yeah I fear ghosts
But being one myself is what I fear the most

'Cause I don't wanna die tonight

Speeding down the road lit up like a match
Bobby crashed into a kudzu patch

We didn't know him too well
So we opened up the doors and we ran like hell

Screaming I don't wanna die tonight

Into the Kudzu, march right on

Lost in the dark for what seems like days
Stumbling around in a god damned maze

I see bright lights
Bobby turned us in for a handsome prize

And I don't wanna die tonight
