Description
Still a song about a boy. When I say 'longer' I mean by 33 seconds. New break added - see if it makes any difference. I am interested in your thoughts - should it stay or should it go (now?)

Lyrics
JOHNNY NOTHIN’

“Nothing” is your last name
It could drive a man insane

Johnny Nothin’ X 8

Black coat and studded boots
You have up and left your roots

Johnny Nothin’ X 4

Leaving it , loving it, left it behind now

Johnny Nothin’ X 4

Turned your back on family
You will wreck your destiny

C’mon…

Johnny Nothin’…

Cool
Pumping bass line, love that so much.
I like the break on this one, I did one similar but with heartbeats instead of breathing so i quite like like the idea of the complete break... It is literally a breather!
I especially like the guitar work leading up to the break, some wicked sounds and guitar work in there.

Nice one

Thanks Ted
I felt the song needed a quick rest - I like the idea of stopping just to catch your breath as the tune runs away. Glad you tuned in to this version - you get it, right? Anyone that thinks about placing a heartbeat in a song deserves credit in my book.

Cheers!

Bass
I was totally inspired by Jean-Jacques Burnel of the Stranglers who sometimes punched the body of his Precision to give that growling rasp, like you hear in this, at the very end.

Glad you like it - thanks for listening/commenting.

Still a great song
and still in my head from the last time I listened to it. I think the break works, not because the song needed a break, but because it brings something new to the song. Great stuff, made even greater. Sweet. Peace.

Esta indecision me molesta
me debo ir o quedarme?

When I heard the thunderous beat, I thought for sure this would be sung fast and furious, spitting everywhere, but pleasingly I was surprised by the drawn out singing. It's a nice contrast to the "Leaving it , loving it, left it behind now" and the "c'mons"

I like how you return to the Johnny Nothin' in the end. Works for me.

So, is Jake out of town or something? You've been busy!

Good stuff Jim!

Tom.
I was playing a random playlist and "So Hardcore" came on. It is brilliant. Please come back. My close friends (non- MJers) are shocked (in a good way) at the standard of your music.

I want to hear your music more than mine.

Giddy up. giddy up...You ain't no fool. Do something.
