If Motorhead and Zeke crossed with Lynyrd Skynyrd and The James Gang you would have the music of The Skullcranes.

Biography

Genre: Trailer Park Punk, Dirt

Ah, The Skullcranes.

Formed by weekday benders going into the 4 A.M. hour disguised
as “practices” in the year 2000, The Skullcranes has since done a few
good things here and there. They have toured the upper Midwest when it
was possible for the young men and have released 3 full length records
as well as been part of three compilations.
Staying true to the blue collar vibe that comes with living in a
working class part of town just outside of Northeast Minneapolis, The
Skullcranes have always did it their own way without too much
consideration of outside “advice” or “ideas”.
Releasing their fourth full length on Crustacean Records in May
of 2009, The Skullcranes continue to pay homage to the “choice-ness”
and the “faults depending on how you look at it” of where they are
from. “Columbia Heights Nights” takes you on a ride in a huge gas
guzzling pick up, drops you off at a bar where there is Belgian Beer
on special then slaps you around before leaving you at a giant house
party in the northern suburbs of Minneapolis.
Loud, fast, beer and cars, enough said. Sleeves optional.

Lyrics

Maplewould't

Written By: The Skullcranes

Ten miles north of the capital city
where the grass is green and the girls are a little slutty
(nothin' wrong with that,outstanding,i'm on it)
I heard that it's nice this time of year

AND I'VE READ THEY
sing it fast and they sing it loud
and you bet mother fucker they sing it proud
this aint your grandma's northern suburb anymore

+++bridge+++
well maybe i should'nt or maybe I should
pack up my shit and move to Maplewood
the City pages said that I could if I wanted to

+++chours+++
say goodbye to the twin cities lost and found
And say hello to the bed,bath and beyond
DO IT!!!

+++MELODIC STOCK PUNK RIFF+++
+++BRIDGE+++
+++CHOURS+++
DO IT!!!

You, me and the 763

MY TRUCK IS BIGGER THAN YOURS!
and on my mudflaps I have a pair of....

shiny chrome sluts

MY TRUCK HAS GOT A C.B. ANTANEA!
and with a wide open mouth it.......

kisses the sky

+++chours+++
You and me and the 763
we're walking hand and hand (AND HAND)
into history
We don't have ten bones, but you know we got stones
we won't back down from a dare
Do you have an extra square?

MY OTHER CAR IS A FIREBIRD
and that makes me super kick ass...

in case you haven't heard

THERE IS THREE THINGS THAT WE LOVE
its doing keg stands, motor sports and...

wearing jean shorts

+++chours+++
+++solo+++

I see you standing on the side of the road
I could pick you up but I'll probably just keep going
hey grandma I saw you fall down that really sucks
I would help you up, but, I need

ASS CASH GRASS
NO RIDE FREE
ASS CASH GRASS
NO RIDE FREE

Hey Bon Scott, man I like that song
you know that one you call Ride On
and just like you I'm gonna change my evil ways
one of these days, until then I need

ASS CASH GRASS
NO RIDE FREE
ASS CASH GRASS
NO RIDE FREE

+++SOLO+++
+++QUIET PHASE PART+++
ASS, CASH, GRASS
