Rocket Attack - Demo 200666


I love Rocket Attack. Rob once referred to me as the unofficial fourth member; of Zack, Rob, and Tanar I'm probably the only one who looks back on the band with a smile. Unfortunately I no longer have a copy of the Rocket Attack cd demo but here is the 200666 and 1/2 demo (it has one less track than the demo and three tracks from the 7" that never got put out). Rocket Attack in its existence only released two cd demos along with a t shirt some stickers, buttons and a tape. I still have the mp3s from the first demo so I just included those in the link as well as the track left out, "Dooooom". Plans were made to release a 7" which I will put up the tracks to later but the band broke up. They carried on into 2007 with Brian on drums but couldn't do it. I jammed with Zack a bit and learned the songs plus some new ones but it was pointless to carry on; the spirit was dead. I just remembered, there are also live tracks on Dead Air (the first band to play it) I'll put up. Rocket Attack was very much an Olympia band in that every show was a blast. Circle pits carried in an american flag, ordering the crowd to do pantless circle pits (which somehow always worked), and games played during songs like 'steal the shoe'. Rob would tell people during songs that clocked in at under a minute to steal the person's shoe next to you. Usually the whole room would try to steal each other's shoes, sometimes one person would be targeted, and other time's Rob would be targeted. Rocket Attack as a band was just fun. Some songs were written with Rob just making noises. After that was recorded everyone would laugh and try to decipher words from the meaningless verbal garble. Songs like "Antwon" were created in this fashion. There was also beef between Rocket Attack and another band that will remain unnamed [and no I'm not talking about the joke beef between dying days]. Rocket Attack as a fun and childish band approached this beef, of course, in a childish fashion; putting stickers on the people's vans and challenging the band to a 'live show off' which they [the other band] declined. Rocket Attack was also the first band I ever want on tour with and boy was that hilarious. Throwing up jellybeans in Clint [Acts of Sedition's] lap, all night Tijuana escapades, Disneyland adventures, food poisoning, barfing in Tostinos bags, Walker chugging 40s in the back of the van, getting bullets waved at us, and matching dinosaur tattoos among the highlights. Rocket Attack marks a very fun time in Olympia and once more reinforces the 'goofy-band' aspect of Oly; basically just doing whatever you feel like and making it a band. Enjoy.



Also, here are demo lyrics (the demo never had any but Rob typed em' up):
1. Caveman

Speak loud. No stick.
Mediate with my words, hear the voice without war.
Who are you to de-evolve the human race for respect?
(Use) both hind legs (and) move along.

2. Office Death

You will think you feel at home.
You realize you're all alone.
Try to make it up with pics, of your stupid fucking kids.
Office space holocaust, the drone grows and dies in his grey box.

3. Cut In Half

I love this place with the open door.
No fucking stage just the hard wood floor.
We are equal here, We are all equal here.
No drugs, no booze, no fights, no attitudes.

4. Alex Murphy

Shot in the head, they thought he was dead.
Brought back to life. He'll get his revenge tonight.
Alex J. Murphy! AKA Robocop!
Shoot them ask them later,
shoot them ask them later,
shoot them ask them later.
Robocop will kill!

5. Yams

*you have to figure this one out yourself.

6. Rocket Attack U.S.A.

Rocket Attack U.S.A.
Rocket Attack U.S.A.
Rocket Attack U.S.A.
Rocket Attack!

7. Bill Pullman Falls to Earth

Welcome to Earth... BITCH!

8. Antwon

You're a fucking donkey kong,
I deal with you all of the time!
You're tall! Good call! A wall!
You're a fucking donkey kong,
You're always eating pork chops DIEEEE!

9. MTV

I wanna be on MTV so I can kill Carson Daly,
I wanna be on MTV so I can kill Carson Daly.
M - T - V.

10. Ten Percent Juice

All natu(ral), all natu(ral) All natu(ral),
all natu(ral) All natu(ral), all natu-raaaalll.
Raspberry peach juice drink! Snapple! juice.

11. Friday Night Fight

They came that one night
They said there would be a fight
To grab whos near and drink away any fear.
They came with bats and knives, we came ready to fight.
Outnumbered 3 to 1, (all it took) was one punch.
Everybody run because the cops are gonna come!

12. Pure Delusion

Words and music originally by Crossed Out.

13. Dooooooom!

Your ideals are not mine.
Live your life I'll be just fine.
Worry about problems with our time.
So many hours wasted on your own life.
Think of something good for mankind.
Do this. We will follow.
