  7. How did you miss this the first time around?

    I think it was filmed in 2012,but man,I forgot just how cool that video is.HRP
     
  8. ZZ Top is one of my favorite bands.
    Here's how much of a genius Rev. Billy is. He heard this song and made his version and a Damn cool video too. Some of the lyrics don't make much sense because they come from a different place. From 2008- the original version of the song.

    Quoted...
    "This song is a revamp of fellow Texan DJ DMD's 1989 rap hit "25 Lighters," which is Houston ghetto slang for taking Bic Lighters apart, removing the innards and filling them with crack."

    Since they only got paid today and got only a pocketful of change they have to look at other means to subsidize the Rockin Kick Ass Lifestyle...joking aside those guys do know how to Rock n' Roll n' Blues it that's for sure and they have helped influence the Hotrod /Custom Big Ball of Excitement...

    This is more like it. The early ZZ Top stuff was cutting edge, they blew away old school rockers, nobody really dared to play with such raw grit as these guys did. Texas rock & roll heavily rooted in the blues. I could go on about it, but this is probably the wrong forum for that. Like 'em or not, ZZ pushed the limits for the time; and Billy has been a guitar tone legend ever since. The new song, eh, I could do without it. Cool video though. Hard to go wrong with hot rods and hawt chicks.

    I coulda been. Of course I would have had to be someone different and did soothing different but I couda been.

    I hate to say this in public but I seldom know the lyrics to most music. My ears are just not tuned that way. I did like the vid though.
