Rock & Roll Band
Boston Lyrics


Well, we were just another band out of Boston
On the road and tryin' to make ends meet
Playin' all the bars, sleepin' in our cars
And we practiced right on out in the street
No, we didn't have much money
We barely made enough to survive
But when we got up on stage and got ready to play, people came alive

Rock and roll band, everybody's waitin'
Getting' crazy, anticipatin'
Love and music, play, play, play, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Dancin' in the streets of Hyannis
We were getting pretty good at the game
People stood in line and didn't seem to mind
You know everybody knew our name
Livin' on rock and roll music
Never worried 'bout things we were missin'
When we got up on stage and got ready to play everybody'd listen

Rock and roll band, everybody's waitin'
Getting' crazy, anticipatin'
Love and music, play, play, play, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Playin' for week in Rhode Island
A man came to the stage one night
He smoked a big cigar, drove a Cadillac car
And said boys, I think this band's outta sight
Oh, sign a record company contract
You know I've got great expectations
When I hear you on the car radio you're gonna be a sensation

Rock and roll band, everybody's waitin'
Getting' crazy, anticipatin'
Love and music, play, play, play, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

A absolute beast of a song sung by the great Brad Delp. A band that should have been inducted into the Rock Roll Hall of fame years ago. A travasty that it's taken this long. Hopefully the boys get the recognition they so truly deserve. .class of 22

Boston is without a doubt the MOST underrated band of all time.

Michael Bradley

Never ceases to amaze me. Mention any band on YouTube and someone inevitably chimes in with the "omg they're SO underrated" comment.

ben mcdowell

Bro there not underrated

Canis familiaris

One of the best albums ever recorded!

Randy Arms

The best. I will be 59 in a few days. No comparison.

outlaws9295

Easily one of the best and yet most underrated bands of their time.

Hugo González García

@samyooelle If you look at a video like 100 best rock songs and see the comments everyone is mentioning queen, the Beatles, nirvana, Guns N'Roses, KISS, etc but rarely boston

Matt Kalina

@samyooelle You are right. Boston has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide. That is not underrated.
