Trooper – Raise a Little Hell

Over on the official NWOt facebook page, I posted this song at the beginning of the year as “this needs to be the anthem for 2020!” Well, wrong type of hell… WRONG TYPE OF HELL! Come on 2020, listen to the lyrics:

Lyrics

Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
If you don’t like
What you got
Why don’t you change it
If your world is all screwed up
Rearrange it
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
If you don’t like what you see
Why don’t you fight it
If you know there’s something wrong
Why don’t you right it
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
In the end it comes down to your thinking
And there’s really nobody to blame
When it feels like your ship is sinking
And you’re too tired to play the game
Nobody’s going to help you
You’ve just got to stand up alone
And dig in your heels
And see how it feels
To raise a little Hell of your own
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
If you don’t like
What you got
Why don’t you change it
If your world is all screwed up
Rearrange it
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell
Raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell, raise a little Hell

Come on! It’s about changing your situation for the better; bend reality to suit you. Anyway that’s the way I hear it. And that’s what I’m going to continue to do, especially in the face of this coming coo·coo decade.

Raise a Little Hell comes from the Canadian rock band Trooper’s 1978 album Thick As Thieves (amazon link).

The video appears to come from the short lived program Whatever Turns You On, which was a spin off of the long running You Can’t Do That on Television.
