After I started my list of the Top 13 Punk Rock Songs last week, it’s now time to present the next song on my list.
It’s a song by the Swedish band Satanic Surfers: Hero Of Our Time.
- Position: 12 (of 13)
- Song Title: Hero Of Our Time*
- Band: Satanic Surfers
- On Album: Hero Of Our Time*
- Year: 1996
- Lyrics: Satanic Surfers – Hero Of Our Time
I really like this song because it combines fast guitar riffs with nice clean parts. And the melodies (guitar and voice) are catchy as hell 😉
Little things like the “Goodbye” in the first verse, the bass line before the guitars start again, or the final drum beat at the end of the song make it fun to sing, speak, tap and hum along.
And don’t forget the catchy chorus: “He flies by outside my window – da-daaa-da-da-daaaa” 😀 I simply can’t help but sing along!
This song is a good example of a fast punk rock song with a positive mood – despite the band’s name.
So, what do you think of this song? Isn’t it catchy? 🙂
