about

Mike Matteson wasted no time delivering Gong Bangin’, which trails his first album, Teenage Man, by just two weeks. Just like the first album, Gong Bangin’ was entirely written and performed by Mike Matteson himself. However, the similarities end there. Where Teenage Man is meticulous, Gong Bangin’ is minimalistic. With all bullshit stripped away, the only thing left is pure, unrestrained rock and roll saturated with attitude, innocence, lust, and fucked-up-ness. And it is loud as hell.

It is true that there is nothing innovative here, but at least it’s not “pop punk."

Track Name: White Girl Wasted
He’s a hot shot, she’s a miss
Like every other cookie-cutter bitch
We won’t be young forever
Let’s get white-girl wasted together

We’re getting white-girl wasted tonight

Friday night, 13 degrees
Every girl’s skirt’s well above the knees
Crop top, fits so tight
We’re getting white-girl wasted tonight

We're getting white-girl wasted tonight
Get drunk, you’ll feel alright

I made out with a chick from Sigma Phi
She was toasted right out of her mind
I could tell by the way she tasted
That she was white-girl wasted

We're getting white-girl wasted tonight

We're getting white-girl wasted tonight
You look so good till you turn on the light
Track Name: She Wears Boots
There’s an evil little girl I know
She walks like she’s putting on a show
The fellas see her walking down the street
With them big black boots strapped to her feet

She wears boots, yeah, she’s really something to see
From her toes right up to her knee
She gave me a glare, I said, “baby, please"

They say she’s a dangerous babe
She’s got loving that you can’t escape
And when it’s over, you’ll be sore
But that’s the kinda love that I’m pining for

Oh yeah, she don’t got mercy for me

If she ever walks up to you
There ain't nothing you can do
You could try and run away
But she likes it when you play along with her game

Oh yeah, you’ll be begging her please
Track Name: I Don't Know What To Do
I don’t want to start a fight
I don’t see in black and white

I don’t want to talk to you
I don’t know what to do

I don’t want enemies
I don’t want to choose from these

Nothing is gonna change
Track Name: I Won't Be Wasted
Baby, can’t you see
I don’t want your weed
I ain’t no bong sucking bitch

I don’t want your booze
I don’t wanna wake up in puke
I’m not a drunken dick
Like you

I won’t be wasted
Staring into space like a fucking dope
Believing your lies

I won’t be wasted
You say you’re seeing things
But your eyes are crossed
Staring into space like a fucking dope
Believing what you see, even though you don’t know
Track Name: Lookin' For Love
Well, I’ve been alone going on three years
Ain’t it a shame now, babe
I need some kind of woman to get me back in gear
Before I go walking down the street singing
Heeeeeey-ey-ey-eeeey-eyyyy
Are you looking for love
You can get it from me, baby
Heeeeeey-ey-ey-eeeey-eyyyy
Are you looking for love
I got what you need, babe

Hey
I’m just so lonely, babe
Hey
Won’t you please, please stay

You start to get real tired but you just can’t sleep
When you’re as lonely as me, baby
A couple hours feels like a couple of weeks when there’s no one to please
Aww, that’s why I’m singing
Heeeeeey-ey-ey-eeeey-eyyyy
Are you looking for love
You can get it from me, baby
Heeeeeey-ey-ey-eeeey-eyyyy
Are you looking for love
You got what I need, babe

Hey
Do you dig me, babe
Hey
Don’t leave me
Watch out babe

Aww, you got me singing
Heeeeeey-ey-ey-eeeey-eyyyy
Are you looking for love
You can get it from me, baby
Heeeeeey-ey-ey-eeeey-eyyyy
Are you looking for love
You got what I need, babe

Hey
Honey, help me
Hey
Aww, I need you, babe
Hey
Please please me, babe
Hey
Track Name: Your World
I feel like a ball and chain
I feel like a human waste
I feel like I’m left behind
Trying to rebuild my mind

Why can’t you just cut me loose
I’ve got nothing left to lose
I feel like I’m left to die
Trying to pass the time

I feel so irrelevant
In your world

I wanna go back to when the kids were just like me
Where I’m safe in my memories

This was my world to lose
We gave it all to you
I feel like I’m left behind
Trying to rebuild my mind

I feel like I’m left to die
Trying to pass
Track Name: Rock n' Ro' Queen
I met a woman, a rock and roll queen
I swear she moves like gasoline

Oh yeah, she’s a rock and roll queen
Prettiest thing I’d ever seen
But she says she’s not the one for me

She was dancing all alone
Right there in the very front row
She had a smile on her face
As I was walking over her way

I took her hand for a song
And we were dancing all wrong
I said, “baby, would you like to leave?”
But she was ten steps ahead of me
Track Name: Romantasy
Hey little girl
I see you shoveling dirt
Could you use a little me over there

You see you got my attention
Let me state my intention
Cause babe, you got me gasping for air

You see I like your style
So can we talk a while
Cause you really got a grip on me

Let me tell you, little girl
About the secrets of the world
Let me tell you all about my romantasy

Is it ok with you
If I made my move
Or am I just a bit too bold

Is it circumstance
Or do I have a chance
Or are you doing as your mama told

Do you wanna play
Do you wanna stay away
Do you wanna be with me

I really wanna go
But I just don't know
Won't you tell me all about your romantasy

We could have so much fun today
Could I be any more cliche
It's whatever you what but what's important is why
Because I may seem kinda different but I'm actually a pretty nice guy

Eddie said it's fine
I'm not crossing the line
Noah said the same thing too

Don't want an easy fix
Don't need those dirty tricks
I'm not looking for something to do

You see I like your style
So can we talk a while
Cause you really got a grip on me

Let me tell you, little girl
About the secrets of the world
Let me tell you all about you and me in my romantasy
Track Name: My Head Goes All Around
I’m looking out the window
I’m looking at the time
I’m looking in the second row
She’s looking real fine

And if she knows

My head
My head goes
All around
My head
My head goes
All around
My head
My head goes
All around
My head goes all around

I’m still looking out the window
I’m not looking at you
I don’t know what I’m gonna say
But I’m looking for an excuse

I think she knows

Well, all day long I couldn’t hear a sound
Because the voices in my head are going round and round
And they’re spinning my feet right off the ground

And I looked over my shoulder just to catch a peek
And my cheeks got warm and my knees got weak
She was pretty as a fucking peach, man

I turned around to speak
I turned around to speak
She was deep in her MP3s
Track Name: Red Hot
I’m waiting until the time is right
I gotta keep my head down and stay out of sight
I don’t know what to do but I’m looking to you for clues

Ah, I think you know
I’ve been thinking fast and moving slow
I’m red hot for you
Waiting here and shaking in my boots

I don’t think I look cool because I’m not
I know I got blood because it’s running hot
Here I go wherever you’re going to

“Hey, uh,” that’s all I said
She might as well have been a toaster cause I felt like bread
Too bad, but at least it makes a song
