Soundgarden - Ty Cobb Lyrics




I'm sittin' in a magic hat
With smoke and mirrors
And tire rubber fires
Watch me disappear
What made it slow you down
Sucking on a ball and chain
Another motherfucker goes down the drain

Hard headed fuck you all
Hard headed fuck you all
Hard headed fuck you all
Just add it up to the hot rod death toll

Hard headed fuck you all
Hard headed fuck you all
Hard headed fuck you all
Just add it up to the hot rod death toll

Sick in the head sick in the mouth
And I can't hear a word you say
Not a bit, and I don't give a shit

I got the glass, I got the steel
I got the love to hate
All I need is your head on a stake

Hard headed fuck you all
Hard headed fuck you all
Hard headed fuck you all
Just add it on the hot rod death toll

Hard headed fuck you all
Hard headed fuck you all
Hard headed fuck you all
Just add it on the hot rod death toll ...

  11. Tinted Hourglass

    ...is it wrong that I requested this song to be played at my funeral?

  12. j fro

    sorry, apparently some of the banter towards me and my comments as well as my correspondence in return didnt come through when posted.
    JUST KEEP PLAYING THIS SONG!!!!!

  13. j fro

    btdubs i know he says "hard-headed

  14. Paul Christiansen

    Google “ty Cobb spiking” images and you’ll understand what this song is about

  15. Christopher T.

    I wonder if Chris saw a bit of Ty Cobb in himself.

  16. Kushmo The Magnificent

    THIS SONG IS SO BAD ITS BEYOND GOOD . Fuk u all

  17. Robin Likens

    "Tire rubber fires" makes me smile every time!

  18. Randy Dubin

    "I'm here to fuck y'all!" Greatest chorus ever and sounds like something Ty Cobb would say!

  19. Dave rood

    Chris Cornell you left way to soon man so long to a rock god

  20. Ken Smith

    This a rare Cornell song in that it is literal.

  21. retrogamer

    METAL BLUEGRASS

  22. Gianina Tocasqui Meris

    Suena como Ace of Spades de Motorhead

  23. curtis rodriguez

    I always thought they were singing "I'm here to f*ck you up," not "hardheaded f*ck you all." Knowing that Ty Cobb was hyper aggressive as a baseball player, it always made sense.

  24. submoronicbomb

    They always were peering into the future.

  25. deadstar44

    Sounds like Motorhead's Overkill played on mandolin. I love Soundgarden's sense of irony. Much like Big Dumb Sex, those who are taking this as a FU party hard anthem are totally missing the point and the butt of the jokes. Chris is lampooning dudebros POV. "Ty Cobb" is basically a composite character of all the douchebags and their attitude Chris encountered and hated. A bit like Kurt Cobain on In Bloom.

  26. Sarah Boller

    bad ass song ☠🖤💋

  27. Pete Maravich

    Ty Cobb was Actually a Great Baseball Player

    michael morphites

    We know

  28. Melissa Shearer

    I told my therapist this song makes me feel good. She wrote down the name and said she'd listen to it, per my suggestion. She never talked to me again.

    White Chocolate

    Did that actually happen?

    Tinted Hourglass

    That...might be my favorite comment on YouTube, ever. ^.^

  29. SadPeterPan1977

    When I bought this album way back when the guy behind the sales counter told me to play this track loud when I first listened to it. Evil git. :D

  30. sonicheadfuck

    This fuckin' tune! <3

  31. Brett Hickmann

    Funny thing is this song wasn't written about Ty Cobb.

  32. Melissa Shearer

    My lullaby

  33. CharlieAndBergs

    That banjo makes it

  34. B H Tea

    one of my favourite songs, whenever i feel the need to say fuck all bullshit i got/get. this is the song...

  35. Nirvana videos D

    Anyone puts a 👎 fuck you all.

  36. Leo Muñoz

    MIND YOUR MANNERS!! Oh sorry, almost!

  37. Peter Guerin

    This song keeps giving me nightmares about Ty Cobb chasing me with a big baseball bat and screaming "FUCK YOU!"

  38. Ezidio Alves

    Saudades dessa época,bons tempos que só voltam quando ouço essas obras primas!

  39. Matthew Billington

    Fuck you ALL

  40. Tyler Cobb

    Rip chris

  41. Riley Burgess

    When he says "Hard headed f*ck you all", I actually thought he said "I'm here to f*ck you all"

  42. Tom N

    Just add it up to the hot rod death toll! RIP Chris Cornell :'(

  43. Salamander

    l luv the old western piano.

    firebirdgao

    Salamander banjo ?

    Johnny B. Goode

    Sounds like a banjo to me.

  44. Shane Gray

    It's the feeling I get from Ty Cobb that makes it one of my favorite Soundgarden songs!

  45. 4thandinches

    Chris Cornell has a message from heaven, for those who do not miss his brilliance, and enormous contributions to music:

    "Hard-headed fuck you all!"

    Riley Burgess

    thats sad and funny at the same time

  46. John Marese

    such raw punk coming thru Kim's guitar. rip chris

  47. j fro

    ...and angry....

  48. j fro

    so sad.. keep playing it

  49. Oliver Shagnasty

    Fuck you allllll.....with a hard rock banjo..
    RIP C.C.

  50. bassmanjoe

    The most diverse album they did in my opinion, many influences on this album.

    Rafael Trivino

    This song came out of nowhere.

  51. Dane Parsons

    Rip legend

  52. Aaron Laster

    R.I.P Chris Cornell

  53. CDaniel J80

    90s album covers were the best

  54. Jesse Lee Music

    My favorite Soundgarden song. RIP Chris!

  55. Km Kt

    RIP. Love this song.

  56. Kyle Johnson Official

    Oliver Shagnasty

    freeedbandini That's what she said

  60. Eric Connor

    RIP to the fucking legend Chris Cornell. He was one of the greats. And this song proves it for being so incredibly badass.

    TobiasAugustusCeasar

    Eric Connor totally agree man

    Rafael Trivino

    The man helped me threw some crazy times in my life. A drink to this amazing man.

    Max Cameron

    I think the bassist wrote this one

  61. Timothy Watters

    Vale :'(

  62. Jim Elliott

    boo
    he was only 52

    bassmanjoe

    He didn't wanna die, it was a accident. Was taking Anti Anxiety meds, and sadly it messed him up. His wife made a statement about it, sadly certain meds can give you suicidal thoughts.

  63. ilias iliou

    Chris,go find Kurt,Shannon and the other guys and keep rocking up there bro! rip. :(

    Mr. Vee

    ilias iliou don't forget Layne

    ilias iliou

    and Layne of course! :)

    Joseph Reiber

    Having Shannon in the same sentence as Cobain & Cornell is like having Carmelo in the same sentence as MJ & LeBron.

    Sarah Boller

    shannon lived close by, he was an awesome person ✌💜💋

  64. DarkShark147

    Punk Rock Soundgarden!

  65. rafishalom1

    One of the songs of soundgarden that I like, yet they as many others got fucked by little haters:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzbJn2UAoIs

  66. shishirba

    This is relaxing. Nothing like deciding to not do homework to this song

  67. YaddaKhan

    Hard headed... :)

  68. A Gamer Called Moses

    7 people are bloody deaf

  69. oneseirios

    fuck them all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :P

  70. Caseus

    This is relaxing. Nothing like doing homework to this song =w=

    Adam Cheek

    Oh gotcha lol

    Matt Nalesnik

    Cheese Chan then again, no one actually cares.

    Caseus

    Yes I know that nobody cares

    Rafael Trivino

    I remember when I got this cd on my birthday. I listened to it while doing homework, cleaning the house, and at party's. It never gets old.

    Reikeov Murphy

    Cheese Chan this song gets those endofens fireing off like Firecrackers. 💥💥💥, 💥💥, 💥💥💥 !!!

  71. Travis McDermid

    At first I thought the chorus was "I'll hit it fuck you all" meaning hitting the ball at bat

    Bob Dick

    i original thought it said "i'm here to fuck you all"

  72. nworbrelytthefirst

    go to settings and change the speed to 1.5. it's pretty cool.

    フレドリックフレドリック

    +nworbrelytthefirst Haha not bad.. I think 1.25 is a bit clearer though.

    Rob Johansen

    +Joshua McCoskrie try 0.5!

    Jason Stallings

    holy crap. uber hardcore rockabilly from hell. Thank you for sharing that!

    Jason Stallings

    it gets kind of industrial if you slow it down to 0.5 lol

    Rafael Trivino

    The band needs more cocaine and meth!!!

  73. The Band Royale

    You like great music. We like good music. Check out our channel and subscribe if you enjoy what you hear.

    Let us know what you think.

  74. j fro

    keep it up bitches

  75. Nikola Nebulus

    i'm glad that we can all come together and enjoy songs like this, that's it's possible to share your feelings with other people who have similar enjoyments in life.  I remember this song from the 90's, it was all about the music back then, not about image at all and this song proves it.  Just straight rock and pure channeling of expression, release the beast, feel the soul.

    Caseus

    No truer words have ever been spoken.

    Nikola Nebulus

    @Cheese Chan thank you, I hope you're doing good and not having any problems with all these fucking idiots in life

  76. ToastCommunity

    bravo continua cosi

  77. Jason Kane

    What does he say after every time he repeats the chorus?

    Michael J. Caboose

    Just add it up to the hot rod death toll.

    Hot Rod Death Toll was the song's original name.

    Jason Kane

    @Michael J. Caboose Thanks captain

  78. Cutflood

    For the longest time I thought he said, "I'm here to fuck you all!" Still sing it as such to this day even though I know better. 
    Not to toot my own horn but I think it's a little more badass. Like, I was born to fuck you all up. ;)

    STEALTHKAOS

    Moi aussi mthrfkkrs

    Oliver Shagnasty

    Jason Kane with a hard rock banjo , pronounced hot rod death toll, :-)

    Bob Dick

    Cutflood your not the only one bro... I'm Here To Fuck You All

    paladro

    you must do great renditions of children's classics ))

    Nick T

    Cutflood I thought so to

  79. thepokkanome

    huehuehuw

  80. maplejet

    HARD HEADED FUCK YOU ALL!!!!

  81. Marlon Fontinele

    Shit!!! this is a good song but... songs like Stolen Prayer, Angel On Fire, Heartfist, Christi and Missing who never be released could be much better e make the Down On The Upside one of the best albums in the history no discussion!!!

    Derek Dumas

    agreed but this song came before all thoes bans songs

    Kenneth Conner

    @Marlon Fontinele really. Have you heard Louder Than Love, Ultra Mega Ok, or Screaming Life/Fopp?

  82. j fro

    we will get this to 1,000,000 views

    brian byrne

    Will we now?

    Jason Kane

    @Jeremy Fromm What's the plan?

    Oliver Shagnasty

    Jason Kane C.C. read your comment, and got a plan. :-(

    j fro

    Eh prolly not... but you know what...anyone who didn't help.... GODDAMMIT FUCK YOU ALL!!!!

    RIP CHRIS CORNELL. One of the greatest vocalists of all time!!!!

  83. Chris M

    Gotta love grunge banjo!

    bassmanjoe

    Sounds like a Punk Influence to me.

    Krusty The Clown

    Yes, and the Trainbell at 2:44 :-) Nice....Nice nononcence power drum+guitar rock....

    Joshua Ibarra

    bassmanjoe, Sounds way more Punk than Grunge actualky

    Calvin Butler

    Wow. I always thought it was a banjo. Thanks for the info.

    Joseph Robichaud

    @Joshua Ibarra they always considered themselves indie punk metal before being cast into the grunge genre with all the other Seattle bands...

  84. Bob Robertson

    So do I... family and certain friends excluded

  85. scoby kenobi

    Blaring through high quality headphones direct to an acid fucked brain in a packed elevator. Going down?

  86. Chris Bartolini

    I love how, logically, that would in fact make someone one of the least racist people on the planet.

  87. walkingthevalley

    I like your version better.

  88. Zak Windle

    to the won ton dental!!!!

  89. chris miller

    best ballplayers of all time!

  90. Margot Psorn

    they played this live in portland. bettcha me screaming 'fuck you all' was louder than the band themselves lol

  91. adam schmalz

    punk w/ mandolins

  92. Wild Mongoose

    Just add it up to the hot rod death toll.

  93. Rick Trussell

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Really missing the 90's about now!

  94. sidvicious7180

    i am a die hard yankees fan and still love cobb

  95. Shocking Blue fan Andy Nirvana

    love this amazing band,always amazing songs,this kicks ass

  96. mtman97

    and this song goes out to my once-lover

  97. sub1ime81

    The song isn't actually about Ty Cobb, in Cornell's words: "It was basically coming from the frame of mind of some sort of hardcore pissed-off idiot, and that's why we titled it that. We weren't writing the song about Ty Cobb at all—I didn't even know anything about him."

    So it was more thinking of someone that embodied the characteristics of the song, to put it mildly...crazy, mean, hardcore, raw and just in your fucking face.

  98. TheTorturekilla

    its honestly sooo fucking good. soundgarden i mean...
