Nickelback - Burn It To The Ground

Burn It to the Ground is the fourth U.S. single (fifth single in Canada after "I'd Come for You") released from their sixth studio album Dark Horse.

Burn it to the Ground became the highest charting single of Nickelback in Finland and only the second Nickelback single to enter the Finnish Singles Chart, peaking at #7. Their first entry was How You Remind Me, which was released 8 years earlier and peaked at #18.

It is featured on the soundtrack for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. It was also used in the Formula One highlights for the 2010 Australian Grand Prix as well as for the 2010 NASCAR commercials.

Well, it's midnight, damn right, we're wound up too tight
I got a fist full of whiskey, the bottle just bit me
Ooh, that xxxx makes me bat-xxxx crazy
We got no fear, no doubt, all in, balls out

We're going off tonight (hey!)
To kick out every light (hey!)
Take anything we want (hey!)
Drink everything in sight (hey!)
We'll go until the world stops turning
While we burn it to the ground tonight
Ooh! Ooh! Oooh!
Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!

We're screaming like demons and swinging from the ceiling
I got a fistful of fifties, tequila just hit me
Ooh, we got no class, no taste, no shirt, and xxxx faced
We got 'em lined up, shot down, firing back straight Crown

We're going off tonight (hey!)
To kick out every light (hey!)
Take anything we want (hey!)
Drink everything in sight (hey!)
We'll go until the world stops turning
While we burn it to the ground tonight
Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!
Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!

Ticking like a time bomb, drinking till the night's gone
Get your hands off this glass, last call my ass
Aah, no chain, no lock, an' this train won't stop
We got no fear, no doubt, all in, balls out

We're going off tonight (hey!)
To kick out every light (hey!)
Take anything we want (hey!)
Drink everything in sight (hey!)
We'll go until the world stops turning
While we burn it to the ground tonight
Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!

We're going off tonight (hey!)
To kick out every light (hey!)
Take anything we want (hey!)
Drink everything in sight (hey!)
We'll go until the world stops turning
While we burn it to the ground tonight
