Head bangers in leather
Sparks fly in the dead of the night
It all comes together
When they shoot out the lights
Fifty thousand watts of power
And it's pushin' overload
The beast is ready to devour
All the metal they can hold
Reachin' overload
Start to explode

[Chorus]
It's your one way ticket to midnight
Call it heavy metal
Higher than high, feelin' just right
Call it heavy metal
Desperation on a red line
Call it heavy metal noise

Tight pants and lipstick
She's riding on razor's edge
She holds her own against the boys
Yea, cuts through the crowd just like a wedge
Ohh, can you feel the static
So many contacts being made
We've got up front fanatics
Tearing down the barricade
To reach the stage
Can you feel the rage

[Chorus]
