    Join Ratboys in celebrating their 10th Anniversary with a brand new live performance and retrospective film airing on April 29th on Bandcamp.

    Filmed and recorded on the floor at Schuba’s Tavern in Chicago, Ratboys transformed the club into a cozy living room for the show, evoking memories of their earliest, most intimate D.I.Y. performances.

    Watch as the band performs songs from across their discography and as they reminisce on ridiculous tales from the road, meeting by chance, and time spent growing into their sound.

lyrics

I have a history of loving all the wrong guys
In high school we studied Stalin, said I love that guy
But, I am cursed, oh yeah I’m cursed alright
In high school we studied Marx, yeah he had pretty eyes

I wonder why
And where we have to go
Where do we go?

I have a tendency of biting my nails when I’m bored
I sit on my computer for nothing, writing “I’m so bored”
But, I am trapped beneath my bed, oh lord
I sit on my computer for something to occupy my time

I wonder why
And where we have to go
Where do we go?

I have a penalty that I like to pay at night
And in high school I got yelled at by one of the wrong guys
But, I am first, oh yeah I’m first in line
In college someone told me that I have pretty eyes
