The Best Ever Death Metal Band In Denton
The Mountain Goats Lyrics


The best ever death metal band out of Denton
Was a couple of guys who'd been friends since grade school
One was named Cyrus, the other was Jeff
And they practiced twice a week in Jeff's bedroom

The best ever death metal band out of Denton
Never settled on a name
But the top three contenders after weeks of debate
Were Satan's Fingers, and The Killers, and The Hospital Bombers
Jeff and Cyrus believed in their hearts
They were headed for stage lights and lear jets and fortune and fame
So in script that made prominent use of a pentagram
They stenciled their drum heads and guitars with their names

And this was how Cyrus got sent to the school
Where they told him he'd never be famous
And this was why Jeff, in the letters he'd write to his friend
Helped develop a plan to get even

When you punish a person for dreaming his dream
Don't expect him to thank or forgive you
The best ever death metal band out of Denton
Will in time both outpace and outlive you

Hail Satan
Hail Satan tonight
Hail Satan
Hail, hail

One of my favorite lines in music.

Truer words have never been spoken or sung

This is better audio quality than the album version...

RK Beck

In fairness, All Hail West Texas was filmed on a boombox!

At the time I am watching this video it has 666 likes. Wondering whether to show my support but ruin it or leave what is good to be good.

I'd quit my job to see them

I had a fever of 104F and went to the show last year, because I was NOT missing them.
