Despised Icon - MVP Lyrics

Welcome to my team.
The game is on.
Play by the rules or you're gone.
I'm aiming for gold.

I'll pursue my goal and see how our night will finally unfold.
Stay cold or you'll get caught in this deceiving old game.
Extinguish that flame.

The road drew my muse away from me.
I gave up on us to live free.

Cursed with the appetite of a shark.
I'm looking out for the catch of the day.
All it takes is a clever remark and a smile to lure my prey.
Looks can betray.

I must fill the void.
Your bedroom, I enjoyed.
Please don't take this wrong.
For you, I wrote this song.
So long.

Oh yeah!
The game is on.
Play by the rules or you're gone.
Make way for this years MVP.

Oh, baby don't you know this party's picking up.
You be a classy looking hoe.
Girl, I promise that I'll be gentle and take it slow.
Put this thick member in your mouth and start to blow.

I'm the smouldering underdog you all dread,
plaguing your dreams with visions of the dead.
A violent pervert;
psycho-narcissistic scum of loathsome nature.

One more shot then let me aim for your weak spot.
One last key, now lets hit the parking lot.
You don't know my name, you don't know my game.
Ecstasy won't ever be the same.

It's hunting season.
An unsuspecting victim is in my sight.
Despite our slight conversation,
tonight we'll dance and end it in romance.

  1. Luke Dale

    Trolling bars with this on touch tunes. 👍🏻

  2. LoomisPC

    I think I'm in love. First time hearing this song.

  3. A Sz

    Fill at 1:36 is iconic

  4. Ursoc

    10 years old today and still slaps as hard as the day it dropped

  5. Da_PorkChop Xpress

    I felt my sperm forming a circle pit in my testicles during the intro

  6. Wilson Cardoso

    1:04 sick drumming

  7. Lewis ito

    I always think this is the heaviest song I've ever heard

  8. moon baby

    Listening to this on set and being that one loser silently playing air drums and head banging on the set of a movie right now in a dress..oh well this shit still goes in

  9. Ruben Martinez

    Facebook brought me here to check if this actually gets deathcore peeps turnt. Not disappointed

    Ovidiu Mihailescu

    hahahah saw the same post and had to come back for a nostalgic trip of my teenage songs lol

    Ruben Martinez

    @Ovidiu Mihailescu oh yeah man lol literally typed in deathcore song mvp

    Ovidiu Mihailescu

    not gonna lie tho, these still are bangers to this day. I guess one never outgrows their deathcore phase lol

  10. Floral Music Group


  11. Ibrahīm al-Ameriki

    My friend's a slam kinda guy, but he *loved* this song.

    A good counterpart these guys is Beneath the Massacre.

    Gabe Kennedy

    Ion Dissonance as well. All from Montreal!

    James Bohigian


  12. outherefilms

    They should've made this into a video, I'd of preferred this to Days

  13. Zueus Hellhim

    Quem ta aqui graças ao Jean Patton?

  14. christopher crane

    At 2:10 it just completely disintegrates into a minimalist caricature of itself leaving only the undead bones to carry the song till its end


    2k19 niggas

  16. Salat Niko

    Oh shit

  17. David Carrubba

    Still heavy

  18. Michael P.

    I remember back in mid 2000's, had to before 2007, maybe even 2006 who knows, but the whole band was in town staying with a dude we knew for the night and I gave them all free Chipotle and then they came to our town's tattoo shop hung out and they hooked us up with hoodies and shit. Cool dudes and they were killer live, too.

  19. bbqbeers

    so brutal

  20. Chris Adams

    Anglemaker blaze
    Anglemaker a bridge between us

    Check them out !

  21. Djenk

    This fucking song man idk how it still gets better every listen lol

  22. Memento Mori

    You know we're in business when half the song is a nasty breakdown

  23. Definitely a George Soros funded bot

    Dude this has to be one of the fastest and hardest songs to play on drums

    David Corriveau

    Lol listen to infant annihilator

    James Bohigian

    @David Corriveau I'd say this isn't too far off from IA.

    Chronic Culcha

    @David Corriveau IA's drumming was programmed.

    A Sz

    Chronic Culcha obviously for studio shit a lot of drum work is quantified by the producer. Aaron Kitcher is still an extremely clean and fast drummer. Definitely on the same caliber as Alex. I don’t think one is better than the other.

  24. Kamerzysta Poziomki 13

    fuck yeaa

  25. bigwillblahblahbla

    Live these dude are amazing. You prolly like my chemical romance and shit if your hating on them.

  26. JogInTheFog

    Such a catchy melody, always found this a real toe-tapper.

  27. Jasper-Holland

    Underrated song

  28. 2TrailerParkGirls

    If you listen to this at 0.5x speed it's just a normal metal song.

  29. BrazenBullXXX

    Can't airdrum it as a DC drummer.

  30. Daniela Prince


  31. Yg Kurlzz

    That drummer hitting them poly rhythms 🔥🔥 not even the drummer from IA got shit on this guy

  32. Carnal Carnage

    Came here cause I'm fuckin hardcored.

  33. Chad Stokes

    that drummers feet after this song are probably calloused and smoking

  34. YungScarecrow

    Takes me back to high school! Breakdown is still groovy af

  35. TamaGeed

    prossies aye

  36. Jonathan L'Espérance


  37. Amanda Simon

    i love this band i wish they would come to nova scotia

  38. Dominic Wood

    Straight brutal

  39. Tim Taylor

    when I heard this band when I was 17 I started moshing hardcore on the bus an spewing jizz.

  40. Masquerade of Angles

    What vine are y'all talking About? I WANNA see

  41. Jay_ Hawk

    2:44 best part of the song.

  42. Riley Chew

  43. BigFisher Won

    saddens me to see people cant recognize true deathcore og"s

  44. PHVNTUM dubs


  45. PHVNTUM dubs


  46. Matt Hocken

    Welcome to my team :)

  47. Dylan Elsner

  48. meggie callaghan

    this warms my heart

  49. Kief Demon

  53. olduselesschannel foreverdead

    What's fucking vine?

  54. olduselesschannel foreverdead

    Jesus that was heavy and unexpected loved it

  55. David Fancher

    Talk shit about it but Alex Grind plays with his sticks backwards for more that implies something about skill.. been listening to this shit since the day it came out..

    First to Infinity

    David Fancher and he uses magnum sticks which are used for matching. He’s one of the most technical and fast drummers ever

  56. Christian Todd

    I'm here cause of Jared dines


    Christian Todd mee too hahahaha

  57. PHVNTUM dubs

    .........the fckin' PANTERA of DEATHCORE !!!!

  63. Filip Daněk

  66. Cole Lutz

  67. WhiteEagle FN a.k.a Jon Lockhart

    Jbiv2 Flying Anarchy

    Jonathan Lockhart double bass pedals

  68. Ivars Jumītis

  69. Dylan Jewell

  70. Danny Bedwell

    I wish more breakdowns were drawn out like this!

  71. tristananvilcaster

    Love it!

  72. Marius Ritterrath

    is this dethmetal or dethcore? Or maybe something else?

    Marksman 5147

  73. DeaFX

    Their best album by far

  74. DVN00985

  87. Orthodox Apologetic

    if you found this due to the vine you're poser

    Em Dee

    @Zach Vegoe you haven't even hit puberty yet. Little faggot.

    Rick Seville

    I mean yea probably means you're a poser. Despised Icon was pretty popular as far as deathcore goes so if you're into that you should know who they are. It's not new.


    ok boomer

    Cole Train

    Been listening to desoised icon ever since consumed by your poison

    Juan J.

    You sound obese.

  88. Luis Pantoja

    Vine brought me here haha xD

  89. Atomikenrtia

    That breakdown at 2:10 though...

    Digital Nemesis

    I know :/ that's the ONLY bad thing about them but they're legit af!


    +Digital Nemesis What you objectively don't like about their breakdowns? Why are they bad?

    David Garvin

    +Cutt Cut idk bout this guy but a lot of metal elitists think if there are breakdowns then it is not real metal. If there was no breakdowns in this song it would prolly b classified as death metal. Details details

    David Garvin

    +Cutt Cut I like breakdowns if it doesn't take up the whole song


    @David Garvin HAHAHAHAHAHA breakdowns make it not real metal? Thats the dumbest shit ive ever fucking heard HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  90. KHfan4ever23



    Those are from forever ago but thank you so much!

    Metalhead Kangaroo

    Why did you stop dude?


    Got sick of it, honestly. I'll eventually come back and do something else.

    Metalhead Kangaroo

    Okay cool. How was 70000 tons of metal?

    Jessica Danzie

    thank you for posting!

  91. Dallen Miller

    Tyler Boyd

    Kelly Sprong


    Entu .z

    Hey Guys, just wanted to Thank You for guarding the True Metal Scene While I Was Away. I am 15 years old and probably one of the Most TRUE Metalheads You Ever Fucking Met. Life is all about being grim and true, so let's face it we don't need any new or happy people in our community; we like our scene DEAD BECAAUSE DEATH IS DARK AND DARK IS SO COOL!!!!!! These other childish kids will NEVER understand the TRUE DARK METAL community >:D

  93. wexenhex

    Wow. so mush possible talent to waste. there's like 2 decent riffs in this whole song. the vocals are shit. the drums sound triggered and lifeless.


    +Chase Griffin
    that's very true man, but calling this a whole new level of brutality is straight ignorance

    Chase Griffin

    +wexenhex I don't think anyone did, although if you were into the scene back then you'd realize that this was advanced for the time.


    "Into the scene" lol yeah I was in a technical death metal band at the time. This isn't advanced.

    X x__Dr_Acula__x X

    Lol nah homie. The production here is better than any of the new shit actually the production here is some of my favorite of any other bands ever. Even professional articles list despised icon as having far superior songwriting and production. You think this is shit go listen to new thy art.

    X x__Dr_Acula__x X

    I actually heard of this band from my trigger hating elitest friends as well this drummer is just good as fuck

  94. Sarah Mathena

    Fucking sick! 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼

  95. FernTheYoutuber

    Are the drums done on a computer?


    @unholymunk Pretty brutal.


    no but the drum tone is fucking terrible


    @wexenhex I like it.


    +FernTheYoutuber he uses 2x double pedal

    First to Infinity

    Look up Alex grind. It’s him
