Misfits - American Nightmare Lyrics




Hot cherry on Friday night
When the sun goes down my spine
I put an axe in my baby's head
I'm gonna end up doing time

She looks so good in red
American nightmare running scared

She shoulda been hard to get
She shoulda been hard to kill
She shoulda been hard to kill, hey

I had to split your head
American nightmare running scared

I'm heading down the highway
Sign has three inverted nines
If the lord don't get me the devil will
But not without a fight

This highway never fucking ends
American nightmare running scared
American nightmare running scared

I'm heading down the highway
Sign has three inverted nines
If the lord don't get me the devil will
But not without a fight

This highway never fucking ends
American nightmare running scared
Hey, American nightmare running scared

    ACTUAL LYRICS:
    Hot Chevy on a Friday Night
    And the sweat drips down my spine
    I put an axe in my baby’s head
    I’m gonna end up doin’ time

    She looked so good in red
    American Nightmare runnin’ scared

    Shouldn’t oughta done it
    Shouldn’t oughta played
    Shouldn’t ought I said hey

    I had to split your head
    American Nightmare runnin’ scared

    Headin’ down the highway
    Sign has three inverted nines
    If the law won’t get me the devil will,
    But not without a fight

    This highway will never end I say
    American Nightmare runnin’ scared
    American Nightmare runnin’ scared

    Headin’ down the highway
    Sign has three inverted nines
    If the law won’t get me the devil will,
    But not without a fight

    This highway will never fucking end
    American Nightmare runnin’ scared
    American Nightmare runnin’ scared

    The explicit lyric tag is a joke because this was recorded in a way that only those with the lyric sheet could understand it and only their true fans and fiends knew what they were saying

    Hot cherry on Friday night
    When the sun goes down my spine
    I put an axe in my baby's head
    I'm gonna end up doing time

    She shoulda been hard to get
    She shoulda been hard to kill
    She shoulda been hard to kill, hey

    I had to split your head
    American nighmare running scared

    I'm heading down the highway
    Sign has three inverted nines
    If the lord don't get me the devil will
    But not without a fight

    Does this highway never f*cking ends
    American nightmare running scared
    American nightmare running scared

    I'm heading down the highway

  4. Justin Ethnostate

    Swell tune man, the sickest

  5. Violet Cleary

    Reminds me of Dread Zeppelin. 👍

  6. Nitty Gritty

    Tarantino needs to put this in a movie bar scene or some shit

  7. GYT716

    Hellvis!

  8. Levente Deli

    this is the best song ever created

  9. Boromir Of Gondor

    Elvis.....back from the grave!

  10. Jo Blow

    This must have been the time that Elvis tried out for misfits.. between Michael Graves and Glenn Danzig I knew the King was still alive Long Live Elvis

  11. Ary Dabirnia

    Give her the axe, max.

  12. Bon Zo

    Danzig’s lyrics never cease to amaze me, a true American poet in my opinion.

  13. Ron Criswell

    When I was a teenager I had my parents convinced that this was a Elvis bootleg LOL

    Lori Hanks

    That's honestly one of the best things I've ever heard, touche' my friend, touche'

    Dylan Hammer

    Ron Criswell I don’t get it

  14. Andrew Hollingshead

    This should have been the final track on Walk Among Us!

  15. Some black guy

    Hellvis!

  16. tommy fasthorse

    Elvis at his best

  17. SmoXe Morales

    I play this for my wife when I'm pist!

  18. John Martinec

    If you think this sounds like Elvis, look up their cover of Blue Christmas by Elvis. Its live from 1978. Only part of the song is played, which is all you need. It then is perfectly segued into We Are 138. Give it a listen!

    Hot cherry on Friday night
    When the sun goes down my spine
    I put an axe in my baby's head
    I'm gonna end up doing time
    She looks so good in red
    American nightmare running scared
    She shoulda been hard to get
    She shoulda been hard to kill
    She shoulda been hard to kill, hey
    I had to split your head
    American nighmare running scared
    I'm heading down the highway
    Sign has three inverted nines
    If the lord don't get me the devil will
    But not without a fight
    Does this highway never fucking ends
    American nightmare running scared
    American nightmare running scared
    I'm heading down the highway
    Sign has three inverted nines
    If the lord don't get me the devil will

  24. secor032

    Johnny Cash meets Elvis meets.... Mr Danzig.

    Valeria Gonzalez

    But johnny cash and elvis did meet

    Derek Dad-Bod

    @Valeria Gonzalez
    Johnny Cash, Elvis, Carl Perkins & Buddy Holly all did a tour together before they were ever "household names"
    Can you imagine how amazing that tour would be!? If I had a time machine..I'd use it selfishly to go back in time and witness one show from that tour.

  25. Senen Eduardo Castro Montoya

    uff, que buena cancion, escuchando y viajando en una carretera, perfecta

  26. Pat Bateman

    Sounds almost like they had Elvis Presley come in to do singing for this song.

    Rusty Kuntz

    Hey look, it's my doppleganger. I would love to stay & chat but I have a lunch meeting with Cliff Huxtable.

    Henry Lyons

    @Rusty Kuntz orly

    Henry Lyons

    @Rusty Kuntz and can you specifically explain why these kuntz are rusty I mean let's get specific a king really can become rusty quite young sadly so I mean
    . Since your names rusty kuntz what type of kuntz specifically are rusty to you

    Rusty Kuntz

    Rusty Kuntz was a baseball player in the 1980's, played for the Twins & Tigers & is actually pronounced KOONTZ but its much funnier the other way LOL.

    Henry Lyons

    @Rusty Kuntz do you have a predominant British ancestry cuz if so that makes sense why that's funny to you ;)

  27. Logan Daniel

    My only problem with this song is that it’s WAY too short!

    Wolf 90

    Spades-of-Dreams All Misfits songs are like that

    Travis Edwards

    Thats one of my favorite things about their songs. And you can just keep playing them.

    gtg488w

    Spades-of-Dreams literally all their songs are about 1 min 50

    Karl Beerman

    because they're 12 bar blues songs sped up

  28. Tristan Lightle

    the misfits are what i like to call "evil rockabiliy"

    Fish Abuser

    literally only this song lol

    WormWood The burning one

    Tristan Lightle I agree that's a good way to describe misfits.dark but still upbeat

    Grim Reaper 666

    That's called Psychobilly, and the Misfits arguably accidentally invented it.

    MinorThreat82

    The Misfits were the Misfits

  29. Maztuhmind

    Misfits have never sounded as bouncy as this.

  30. deathpunx13

    Such a ghoulish classic - MISFITS RULE
