Happy Lagwagon Day!

It’s just another SUNDAY, But for fans of the legendary punk rockers: Lagwagon, it’s an extraordinary day.

Today is called Lagwagon Day. That is because of the guys had made a song dedicated to this day. Lead vocalist: Joey Cape, Explains why:

Joey Cape: Sometimes you explain what a song is about and it’s about a friend of yours, and someone you’ve become friends with again after having a falling out at some point in your life. Sometimes you tell the story and it’s like “it’s not a big deal, I’m just being transparent.” But I remember when that story started getting around and people would just quote me from this one interview rhetorically, and I was like, “Oh shit, I don’t know if I should keep telling this story ‘cause I’m pretty close to this person now.” [Laughs]

That said, it is an interesting story. A lot of songs are written in a reactionary fashion, and it’s a good thing; there’s a moment when you’re really feeling passion. Most of the songs I’ve written have taken me a long time and there’s a lot of rough drafts, but every once in a while there’s a song you write in ten minutes—lyrics and everything, it just comes out. I don’t know why, but those songs seem to resonate the most with people, and “May 16” is one of those songs.

Most of the people shall know this song probably from the oh so legendary skating game: Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. Whenever riding, grinding Wall-riding,.. Through the maps, You’ll eventually stumbled upon the song. It therefor became a very popular song in the punk rock scene and so they dedicated this song to it.

The full lyrics are as follows:

[Verse 1]
No more waiting on them
As you rise inside new rooms
It’s official you’ve gone
You can live for no one else
Man the guilt must be huge
As there’s no gain in failure
You succeed at being mine
Yeah, old friend, see you there
I will be proud from afar
I can paint a picture
In a moment of memories
And there aren’t many left
I am extradited, uninvited
It’s just another Saturday

[Verse 2]
Take a step to freedom
You and her against this cruel world
Take a breath of shelter
And exhale trust and allegiance
Liberate yourself from hell
It’s just another Saturday
I’ts just another Saturday

Let us always remember May 16 as a great day in our lives. For some, it might just be another Saturday, or in this case an ordinary Sunday, but somewhere in the world, some people are having the best day in their lives. Going from getting married or giving birth to your first born, to falling in love with the love of your life.

Happy May, 16th, Happy Lagwagon Day.
