Rancid

Rancid is an American punk rock band formed in Berkeley, California in 1991. Founded by 80s punk veterans Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman, both of whom previously played in the highly influential ska punk band Operation Ivy, Rancid is credited—along with Green Day and The Offspring—for reviving mainstream interest in punk rock in the United States during the mid-1990s. Unlike Green Day and The Offspring however, Rancid remained signed to an independent record label and retained much of its original fan-base, most of which was connected to its underground roots. more »

Jimmy and Johnny two friends of mine
Skinheads what they claimed
Outside similarities but they don't feel the same
Johnny thinks Jimmy is a mod
And Jimmy thinks Johnny's a punk
Jimmy listens to ska
And Johnny likes last resort
Jimmy and Johnny in the trenches
We down tonight
Drinking Guinness smoking 555's
Once you're in the middle you feel alright
Skinheads tats and a Fred Perry
There's a was in the cemetery
Start to fight stop drinking
What the f*ck were they thinking 

Jimmy and Johnny tell me what you're seeing
Yeah yeah yeah yeah 

Jimmy had his two tone girl on the back of his scooter that night
Johnny had a jacks up Chevy that could blow you right off the line
Skinheads tats and a Fred Perry
There's a was in the cemetery
Start to fight stop drinking
What the f*ck were they thinking

Jimmy and Johnny tell me what you're seeing
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
