Here Are the Lyrics to AJR’s ‘Bang!’

News

When AJR cooked up the theatrical coming-of-age anthem “Bang!” with bombastic horns and choppy production, quinoa was the real key ingredient.

“The quinoa line in ‘Bang!’ is pretty apt. It’s a terrible food. It’s one of those things that we gotta start eating. It’s a superfood,” Ryan Metzger told Billboard in an interview about their highest-charting hit. “When we were writing the lyrics, we were trying to figure out how to encompass adulthood in one word, and it was quinoa.”

Check out the lyrics and music video below.

I get up, I get down and I’m jumpin’ around
And the rumpus and ruckus are comfortable now
Been a hell of a ride but I’m thinkin’ it’s time to grow
(Bang! Bang! Bang!)
So I got an apartment across from the park
Put quinoa in my fridge, still I’m not feelin’ grown
Been a hell of a ride but I’m thinkin’ it’s time to go
(Bang! Bang! Bang!)
(Here we go)

So put your best face on, everybody
Pretend you know this song, everybody
Come hang
Let’s go out with a bang
(Bang! Bang! Bang!)
I’m way too young to lie here forever
I’m way too old to try, so whatever
Come hang
Let’s go out with a bang
(Bang! Bang! Bang!)

Feel like I’m gonna puke ’cause my taxes are due
Do my password begin with a one or a two?
Been a hell of a ride but I’m thinkin’ it’s time to grow
(Bang! Bang! Bang!)
(Metronome)
Man, I’m up to something (up to something), ooh-dee-la-dee-doh
Thank you all for comin’ (all for coming), I hope you like the show
‘Cause it’s on a budget, so ooh-dee-la-dee-doh
Yeah, come on here we go, yeah, come on (here we go)

So put your best face on, everybody
Pretend you know this song, everybody
Come hang
Let’s go out with a bang
(Bang! Bang! Bang!)
I’m way too young to lie here forever
I’m way too old to try, so whatever
Come hang
Let’s go out with a bang
(Bang! Bang! Bang!) (Bang! Bang-bang)
(Bang! Bang! Bang!) (Bang! Bang-bang! Bang! Bang!)

Been a hell of a ride but I’m thinkin’ it’s time to go

So put your best face on, everybody
Pretend you know this song, everybody
Come hang
Let’s go out with a bang
(Bang! Bang! Bang!)
(Here we go)

So put your best face on, everybody
Pretend you know this song, everybody
Come hang
Let’s go out with a bang
(Bang! Bang! Bang!) (Bang! Bang-bang)
I’m way too young to lie here forever
I’m way too old to try, so whatever
Come hang (come hang)
Let’s go out with a bang
(Bang! Bang! Bang!)
(Here we go)
(Bang! Bang!)
