It's brilliant how "stayed awake all night" rhymes with "stayed awake all night."

It's such a good rhyme, "stay awake all night" is repeated 38 times and we hear "all night" 50 times.

In 4 minutes, 40 seconds.

What’s your point? Do you like the song or no? If so, awesome. If not, who cares?

I like a little variety in my lyrics... I give Little Richard some slack for repeating "Tutti-frutti, oh Rudy" 25 times in his hit song (but with unmatched energy). I don't extend the same beneficence to Krokus on "Stayed Awake."

I love "Eat the Rich," though.

High school daze for sure! Great record. I still have my vinyl copy. Lately Ive been rocking out to a lot of old 80s metal, reminds me of simpler times, especially "Riot-Fire Down Under"!

The singer is this really short dude if I remember correctly who has this vocal thing he does a lot. When someone posted that video of that open stage band and the drummer and singer getting into a fight in the middle of a set the first thing I thought "so that's what happened to that singer from Krokus".

:p

Your point is not difficult to understand.
Scorpions "Blackout" is especially bad when it comes to that
-Blackout
-Can't live without you
-You give me all I need
-Dynamite
...Blackout is the only one I care much for.

I used to sing a song with only these lyrics throughout.
“I’m going to Doghill , where the pretty women at “

Well , there were a couple of huh huhs in there too..

Give ‘em a break, English was their second language.
