Biography

StankBot Tyranny was created February 11, 2010.

Brothers, Ben and Will Holle, were searching for a bass player that could match their intensity and drive. After searching for over a year they discovered Nick Anjewierden. Nick turned out to be the missing link necessary for the band to reach the next level.

The band is unusual and turns heads every time they play. Why? Because their amazing double kick drummer is a mere 10 years-old, the lead guitarist is amazing and only 13 and the bassist is the eldest of the group at the ripe age of 17.

SBT played their first show after 2 months of working together and haven't slowed down since. Their sound has been compared to the Ramones, Mudhoney, The Clash and Black Flag. StankBot combines their old school punk sound and clever lyrics to create a completely fresh and memorable sound that will keep you humming their songs long after you've stopped listening.

Set list currently includes 10 original songs and covers of bands such as White Stripes, Ramones and Nirvana. This band is the future and we are living in the future RIGHT NOW!

Rockers they want to meet some day:
Ben - Slash, Jack White, Jimmy Page, and wishes he could meet Jimi Hendrix

Will - Dave Mackintosh (drummer for Dragon Force), Lars Ulrich, Dave Grohl

Nick - John Paul Jones, Flea, Jack White

Lyrics

Did You Take Your Medication

Written By: Nick Anjewierden, Ben Holle, Will Holle

Did you take you medication
x4

I went to school and I could not stay awake
So I missed a test I had to take
Could not stay awake in class
So I missed a test I had to pass

Did you take you medication
x4

Woke up in the morning thought every thing would be fine
Till I started acting out of line
Came up to me said something’s wrong with your head
Came up to me and this is what they said

Did you take you medication
x4

I can’t remember the words to this song 3x
Cause I didn’t take my medication

Did you take you medication
x4
The next day I went to school
Thought everything was gonna be cool
Slapped my palm up to my head
Cause I forgot to take my meds

Did you take you medication
x4

The Fake and the Beautiful

Written By: Nick Anjewierden, Ben Holle, Will Holle

Managed forest
In beautiful rows
Illusion of the natural
How careful it grows

CHORUS:
The fake and the beautiful
x3

Beautiful woman
Manicured nails
They charge her a fortune
To pay she never fails

CHORUS

All your latest trends
And your pretty friends
It’s getting so old
But it never ends

CHORUS
CHORUS

Too Late

Written By: Nick Anjewierden, Ben Holle, Will Holle

A guy and a girl sit on opposite sides of an invisible wall
A love that could never be ‘cause the world’s too big and they’re to small

CHORUS:
Too late
x2

Timing is everything but it’s not us
x4

A missed opportunity a small window of time
What could I have said what could have done to make you be mine

CHORUS

Timing is everything but it’s not us so we’re nothing
4x

StankBot Tyranny

Written By: Nick Anjewierden, Ben Holle, Will Holle

Robots came down from outer space
They came to enslave the human race
They hailed from the infamous planet Stank
That’s why the robots smelled so rank

CHORUS:
Don’t waste your time trying to escape
Once we’ve arrived it’s already too late
StankBot Tyranny
x8

Now that they’ve imposed their iron rule
The rest of us all know just what to do
Tyranny might not seem so fun
But it’s what the robots have begun

CHORUS

The humans planned to take back planet earth
Their movement would begin the new rebirth
But the robots had always known
They quickly crushed their spirit and reclaimed their mighty throne

CHORUS

Rumble Strip

Written By: Nick Anjewierden, Ben Holle, Will Holle

You were driving
Fell asleep
Almost died
Thank the rumble strip!

You almost died
But you survived
Wanna know why?
Thank the rumble strip!

CHORUS:
Thank the rumble strip!
x2

Went for a ride
Started to slide
Mom would have cried
Thank the rumble strip!

Your head dips
Head for the lip
Your heart skips
Thank the rumble strip!

Kick the Head

Written By: Nick Anjewierden, Ben Holle, Will Holle

Kick the head
Cause its dead
Your full of dread
So I said
Repeat

Friendly Ghost

Written By: Nick Anjewierden, Ben Holle, Will Holle

Wake up in the morning
And you’re there
You don’t care about the rules
You don’t care what’s fair
Where could I go
To escape you
When you know
The things that I do

CHORUS:
Friendly ghost, friendly ghost
Where else could you be
Where else could you be
That wasn’t close to me
Repeat

You’re always with me
All the time
Nothing I do or say
Is ever mine
No one can see you
Cause your in my mind
You’ll always be with me
Till they end of time

CHORUS

You’re always with me
I can’t shake you
You’re always with me
So what can I do?
Except be a good host
To you my friendly ghost
Except be a good host
To you my friendly ghost

Ice Cream Man

Written By: Nick Anjewierden, Ben Holle, Will Holle

Ice cream man x2
Driving down the road at 80 miles an hour
Ice cream man x2
Rough smoky voice that make the kids all cower
Ice cream man x2
Bad attitude, ya he’s always sour
Ice cream man x2
Should just go home and take a needed shower

Ice cream man x2
Hates his job and he hates those kids
Ice cream man x2
Wishes they would all just shut their lids
Ice cream man x2
Should have gone to college ya he wished he did
Ice cream man x2
Hates his job and he hates those kids

Ice cream man x2
Ice cream man x2
Ice cream man x2
Ice cream man x2

No Mono

Written By: Nick Anjewierden, Ben Holle, Will Holle

I don’t have mono so leave me alone
Don’t need a doctor so let me stay home
I just want to sleep so stop bugging me
I’d sleep all day if you’d let me be

CHORUS:
No mono
No no
No mono
No no

Don’t offer me pills or any drugs
I’ll be on floating and give to many hugs
Just cause I’m tired it don’t mean a thing
You’d be tired too if you couldn’t sleep

CHORUS

Loss of appetite that I don’t have
Put away the cure put away the salve
Just call my girlfriend she’ll set you straight
Just call my girl friend don’t call Kate

CHORUS
