Where were you when it happened?
Where could you be found?
Were you at the front of the stage
Or in the underground?

From S.F out to Old Brit
New York to L.A
The world of metal changed forever
Back in the day

Well that was back in the day
And if you weren't there
It doesn't matter anyway
Because you wouldn't understand

Live to die, die to play
Every day and place
Leave a path of metal across
A world from stage to stage

Well, that was back in the day
And if you weren't there
It doesn't matter anyway
Because you wouldn't understand

In denim and leather
We were a one for all all for one force
Knocked rock 'n' roll on it's ass
And put metal on the course

Thrash, thrash, thrash, thrash

Back in the day
If you weren't there
It doesn't matter
'Cause you wouldn't understand

This is our way of life
A life that was born free
To follow orders how to live
Was never meant to be

Ah ah oh oh oh

Hints of thunder, seeds of lightning
The power hits the stage
The music was exciting
The mania raged

Ah ah oh oh oh

We all had a fever
Our ears started to ring
Feeding this wildfire
Consuming everything

Ah ah oh oh oh

Metal's king back then
And still is to this day
Others imitate or challenge
But it never goes away

Ah ah oh oh ohh

Songwriters
Mustaine, Dave
