Megatron

BandRockPop

80s-influenced rock band that's bringing back those killer guitar solos, powerful vocals, and energy-packed performances.

Biography

After playing the club scene for years in their home town, guitarist Brian Gresh and vocalist Melissa Williams decided to form a band together to play the music they were truly passionate about. They knew that by combining their musical talents they would stand out from the rest of the bands in their scene. So in January 2005, MEGATRON was created. Since then, MEGATRON has launched their Rock n' Roll assault on the Tulsa music scene and has claimed legions of devoted fans.

Not only is this music machine armed with an arsenal of rockin cover songs, they also have their own originals with lyrics written by Melissa and music composed by Brian. The four members of MEGATRON believe that the visual impact of a show is just as important as the musical impact, so they dress the part and their performance on the stage gives the audience a night to remember. The guitar player even performs back flips mid-guitar solo! All of MEGATRON’s members have a deep admiration for the music and stage performances of bands such as Van Halen, Heart, Led Zeppelin, Pat Benatar, Guns 'n Roses, and Yngwie, just to name a few.

Currently, MEGATRON is recording 11 of their originals at Armstrong studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Check out the official website, www.megatronband.com for their show dates and for more info about the band.

Lyrics

The Best of Me

Written By: Megatron

Now I ain't afraid to walk this road alone
And willingly give up everything I own
I'll never be just a lonely face in the crowd
I'm standing strong ain't nobody can bring me down
So I'm takin what I need

The shadows in my mind,
I won't look behind
Now I'm wilder and free,
You can't get the best of me, the best of me
I'm standing tall,
I've lived through it all
Someday you'll see
You won't get the best of me
The best of me

I can feel the burning deep within my soul
There's no turning back, it's time to take control
I won't let this pain tear me apart
And bring me down and take me right back to the start
Cause I'm startin to believe

The shadows in my mind,
I won't look behind
Now I'm wilder and free,
You can't get the best of me, the best of me
I'm standing tall,
I've lived through it all
Someday you'll see
You won't get the best of me
The best of me

I'm not about to waste my precious time
And nothing that you say can make me change my mind
You can't chase away my dreams

The shadows in my mind,
I won't look behind
Now I'm wilder and free,
You can't get the best of me, the best of me
I'm standing tall,
I've lived through it all
Someday you'll see
You won't get the best of me
The best of me

Revenge

Written By: Megatron

Well I know what I'm gonna do
I found a way to get back at you
It's my turn to tell you to do
After all you put me through

Said you never really knew my name
Walkin around like you ain't the same
You look at me sayin who's to blame
It doesn't matter just play my game

Watch out
Whatever you do
You'll never play me like a fool
Watch out, I'm comin for you

Bad thoughts and memories of you
Out with the old and in with the new
I think about what you put me through
What comes around gets back to you

Don't pretend that you don't know me
I'll give you a taste of misery
Revenge is sweet baby wait and see
I'll make you sorry that you messed with me

Watch out
Whatever you do
You'll never play me like a fool
Watch out, I'm comin for you

Watch out
Whatever you do
You'll never play me like a fool
Watch out
Oh baby,
Watch out
I'm comin for you

The Rebel Song

Written By: Megatron

So you're a rebel now,
living on the edge
You're in so deep,
way over your head
You're so dangerous,
you sin in your sleep
Devil running wild,
through the blood on the streets

Running wild
Out of control
Wreckless child
Out on your own

Well you're a rebel now,
don't take advice from me
You've got an addiction,
you think no one can see
You take your chance you're
a runaway on the street
Twisted illusions,
you fool the ones that you meet

Running wild
Out of control
Wreckless child
Out on your own

Chasing the thrill
always on the run
always on the run
Like a wolf hunts in the night
Living the dangerous life
Living the dangerous life

Lost in your world,
a rebel all alone
You're moving way too fast
a rebel on your own

Running wild
Out of control
Wreckless child
Out on your own
