The Beatles meet The Foo Fighters, with just a dash of The Replacements thrown in for luck!

Biography

Fatgrip is a band whose priority is writing radio friendly, catchy pop-punk songs that the everyday, blue collar worker can identify with. Our pop-punk comes from a mature vantage point, which separates us from most teen-angst pop-punk.

We use top of the line gear, with very little effects thrown in, which gives us a natural and warm feel.

Our major influences are easily heard in our songs.... The Beatles, The Foo Fighters, The Replacements, Cheap Trick, Ramones and Sex Pistols.

Lyrics

Same Old, Same Old

Written By: Fatgrip

Verse I
When life is so stale, it’s time for a change
Soak it now, new days are strange
We can always be singing, Fountains of Wayne
Standing outside in the pouring rain
Lies and Scams, same old same old

Verse II
We can always forgive but never forget
How many monks did the Chinese get?
When I think of you, I wish we never had met
Saying goodbye, to my favorite regret
Lies and scams, the same old same old

Chorus 1
I just do what I’ve been told
Same old same old
Work 40 hours drowning my soul
I just do what I’ve been told
Same old same old
Doing my time, towing the line

Verse III
I’m watching the news and it’s all the same
Leaders lie and live so lame
A flood to the left, fire to the right
Dream in the day, live through the night
Lies and scams, the same old same old

Verse IV
Americans know we’re the world police
Ignore our own while were selling peace
Checking out the game if it’s not blacked out
Hearing the neighbors scream and shout
Lies and scams, the same old same old

Chorus 2
I just do what I’ve been told
Same old same old
Work 40 hours drowning my soul
I just do what I’ve been told
Same old same old
Doing my time, towing the line

Bridge
Feeling alone cause we’ve sold out
It’s a crying shame that we’re burned out
Debt piling up and its cuts like a knife.
Watching the news it’s a big lie,
Media says that were gonna die
Deaths piling up and I’m so confused.

Gina's Got It Bad

Written By: Fatgrip

Verse I + II
It was a Saturday night when I first had that feeling
My senses were reeling
She gave me a look from across the bar
Took a sip of her drink and looked up at me
Was that lust in her eye or what could it be?
Bartender said she wants to buy you a drink
She was so cute and cool; I had no time to think

Chorus
Gina’s got it bad (She got it so bad)
Gina’s got it bad (She got it so bad)
Gina’s got it bad, But she so bad for me.

Verse III and IV
Sundered over the bar then I grabbed a seat
Said to myself “I knew we had to meet”
Talked for two hours then she took me home
No one around, we were alone
Hurried for her keys, fumbling at the door
Made it inside, she threw me on the floor
Hours turned to weeks, weeks into years
Next thing you know, we’re married without fear

Chorus

Verse V + VI
As the years rolled by, things weren’t so great
My hot little girl had let our love go away.
Said she needed new, she needed it now
She told herself that she do it without
She went away and found someone new
Some local flunkie with a bad attitude
He wanted to fight, and I barely made it out
She got what she wanted; now I scream out a shout.

Chorus
Bridge/Doo Wop
Chorus
Chorus
She’s got it bad, bad for me (bad for me)

Days Like These

Written By: Fatgrip

Verse 1
My momma told me there was gonna be days like this…
I’m know I’m older but it’s harder to get over this mess
I’ve always gone alone, but took this one little chance..
Hope I don’t pay dearly for this life regress.

Chorus
What have I, done this time
This time is different; I know I really lost my mind
Why can’t I, seem to move on
Your thoughts are with me and your heart is always on my mind…

Verse 2
Looking back at the days when we were so in love
So carefree and we always found time to make love
Taking chances every minute just to feel so damn good
Never hurried always dirty and it felt so right…

Chorus

Mind…. You’re always on my mind.. Mind…. You’re always on my mind…

Chorus
