Lyrics
This is the ballad of Hollywood Jack and the Rage Cage
Nothing could stop them when Jables and Rage hit the stage
and Hollywood Jack hit the big time and when to make movies
Rage Kage was left far behind in the dust of his dreams

And he grumbled and growled and watched Hollywood Jack on Jay Leno
He bellowed and said he'd be nothing without help from Kage
he burned up the photos of Jables and Kage doing mushrooms
"**** him, I don't need no Hollywood jack anyway"

So Hollywood Jack lived up high on a hill in a bubble
and Rage Kage live deep in the broiling valley below

Yes, the rage Kage bubbled with rage
He looked at the ground
and he looked on the stage
The lava was throwing
and boiling inside the old Kage

As Hollywood Jack climbed the ladder of stardom before him
He watched as his indie credentials flew right out the door
He'd make millions and then he'd go out and he'd make even more millions
He'd screened KG's calls and snorked coke of the *** of a whore

No one respected him
They just rejected him
No one would represent Kage
Left on the streets of his dreams
He'd would cry, and he'd rage for the stage

Ahahaaa

Then Hollywood Jack got a message that Kage was in trouble
They send Kage away cause he had gone completely insane
So Hollywood Jack jumped upon a jetplane and flew all that night through
the rain
To be with his friend to see what remained of his brain
Then Hollywood Jack told the doctors: You got to retrieve him!
You've got the technoligy, use the techniques of your trade
He grabbed the Lapelles and he screamed "BY GOD YOU MUST SAVE HIM!"
Because Rage Kage and I can't you see that were one and the same!

Aaaah!

RAGE KAGE!
OH RAGE KAGE!
There'd be magic inside that old name
And you know that you know
That you're going completely insane

Oh the Rage Kage!
Oh the Rage Kage!
All the line we rolled once again

And you know
Yes you know
That you're going completely insane

Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Nothing and no one could harm the old Rage Kage again,
Hollywood Jack and the Rage Kage were out once again.
