about

Bad Mary draw influences from the likes of Blondie, Green Day and The Ramones. They manage to bring that music back to everyone’s attention and say ‘we haven’t forgotten about the greats and neither should you’. Bad Mary capture something perfect with their style of punk rock interspersed with jazzy upbeat melodies. Bad Mary deserve all the appreciation they get, they’ve produced a brilliantly fun album and in the process have put across this feeling that they are having fun with what they do. Anyone who likes old school punk and hard indie should check these guys and girl out as they are fantastic. - Stencil Magazine, June 2015

Bad Mary New York, New York

It’s not the 70s anymore in NYC – but the spirit of that era’s wild punk scene is alive, well and infused into the contemporary roar that’s blasting out of multi-generational Long Island based sensation Bad Mary.

Track Name: Hangover
Everybody wants to get drunk, get drunk
And the boys they look at my humps, my humps
But I don’t wanna be your fist pump, fist pump
So you’re gonna have to deal with my junk, my junk.

I want have a hangover with you
I wanna show you what I’ll put you through
You gotta know what we’re gonna do
When it’s not fun and it’s not new

Everybody wants to party, party
I asked you to dance with me, with me
But don’t go thinking that’s it’s for free, for free
Cause I’ll never give you my key, my key

Everybody’s taking free shots, free shots
Trying to show me what you got, you got
Your words just sound just like a robot, robot
You think I’m leaving with you, I’m not, I’m not

I want have a hangover with you
I wanna show you what I’ll put you through
You gotta know what we’re gonna do
When it’s not fun and it’s not new

You’ve got your eyes on me
But don’t make a prize of me

Everybody wants to get drunk, get drunk
Everybody wants to get drunk, get drunk
Everybody wants to get drunk, get drunk
Everybody wants to get drunk, get drunk

I want have a hangover with you
I wanna show you what I’ll put you through
You gotta know what we’re gonna do
When it’s not fun and it’s not new
Track Name: Better Days
There was a time when I thought I had all my problems figured out
But now they're building up, and becoming a disaster
It seems that I need some more time
To go and clear my mind

But all this thinking's driving me crazy
And sitting here has got me all lazy
There must be some way out of this hell
It's safe to say that I've had better days

When I was young I had the whole world right outside of my front door
But now the lock is stuck, and I can't get it open
All the grown ups said, "Your future here is looking oh so bright"
But they were full of shit, and I can't turn my lights on
They always say, "Stay positive," but I've got nothing left to give

And all this thinking's driving me crazy
And sitting here has got me all lazy
There must be some way out of this hell
It's safe to say that I've had better days

They always say, "Stay positive"
There's nothing left to do but live

And all this thinking's driving me crazy
And sitting here has got me all lazy
There must be some way out of this hell
It's safe to say that I've had better days.
Track Name: Space Girl
Hello Earth, can you hear me?
You won't believe what I see
Out in the farthest reach of space
My eyes have seen creation
My ears witness destruction
My skin has touched alien race

The people home they don't know
They won't believe my story
You've gotta tell them what I've seen

I'm just a space girl, rocket packs and lasers for eyeballs
Out here in space it gets cold and terribly lonely
When I come back people need to see and believe me
But you won't tell them

I've blasted off past Venus
Basked in a solar flare storm
I flew past Pluto and beyond
Stopped to relax on Neptune
I danced through the rings of Saturn
I proved in space we're not alone

The people home they don't know
They won't believe my story
You've gotta tell them what I've seen

I'm just a space girl, rocket packs and lasers for eyeballs
Out here in space it gets cold and terribly lonely
When I come back people need to see and believe me
But you won't tell them

You can't deactivate my A.I.
Or override my sensors
My visions are saved across the universe
My vengeance will be mass destructive

I'm just a space girl, rocket packs and lasers for eyeballs
Out here in space it gets cold and terribly lonely
When I come back people need to see and believe me
But you won't tell them.
Track Name: Don't Know Where the Line Is
I see you sitting
In the corner
You got your head down
I gotta warn ya

I see her turn around
And take the back door

You gotta know you really had it coming

I don’t know (don’t know where the line is)
I don’t know (don’t know where the line is)
I don’t know (don’t know where the line is)

That you. Don’t. Want. Me to cross.

Don’t you push me
In the corner
I got my claws out
Not gonna warn ya

Not gonna let it go
What you said to me

You gotta know you really had it coming

I don’t know (don’t know where the line is)
I don’t know (don’t know where the line is)
I don’t know (don’t know where the line is)

That you. Don’t. Want. Me to cross.

Nah-nah nah-nah nah-nah nah, naaah nah nah-nah nah-nah nah
Nah-nah nah-nah nah-nah nah, naaah nah nah-nah nah-nah nah
You can’t just run away from me!
Nah-nah nah-nah nah-nah nah, naaah nah nah-nah nah-nah nah
Nah-nah nah-nah nah-nah nah, naaah nah nah-nah nah-nah nah
I’m gonna drive you to insanity!
Nah-nah nah-nah nah-nah nah, naaah nah nah-nah nah-nah nah
Nah-nah nah-nah nah-nah nah, naaah nah nah-nah nah-nah nah

You had to know you really had it coming.

I don’t know (don’t know where the line is)
I don’t know (don’t know where the line is)
I don’t know (don’t know where the line is)

That you. Don’t. Want. Me to cross.
Track Name: Ninja
Seven million people and I’m walking all alone, yeah
I don’t say nothing when I call you on the phone, yeah

I bet you thought that I was just good looking, din’cha
Boy you best watch out ‘cause I’m a mother-fuckin’ ninja!

Don’t look back, oh no
Don’t look back, no no
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back, because I’m not there
Don’t look back, oh no
Don’t look back, no no
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back, because I’m not here

Uh oh, Uh oh, Uh oh oh oh,
Uh oh, Uh oh, Uh oh

Seven million people and I’m only watching you, yeah
You try and catch me and you know I’m gonna lose ya

You get too close to me you know I’m gonna singe ya
You best back off cause I’m a mother-fuckin’ ninja

Don’t look back, oh no
Don’t look back, oh no
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back, because I’m not there
Don’t look back, oh no

Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back, because I’m not here

Uh oh, Uh oh, Uh oh oh oh,
Uh oh, Uh oh, Uh oh

Just watch me disappear

Revenge is best served cold
From a heart that has turned to stone

You left me standing on the shore just like a loser
But now I’m back and you know I’m gonna school ya

I’ve come to hunt you down I’m gonna make you cringe-a
More than you can handle I’m a mother-fuckin’ ninja

Don’t look back, oh no
Don’t look back, oh no
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back, because I’m not there
Don’t look back, oh no
Don’t look back, oh no
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back, because I’m not here

Uh oh, Uh oh, Uh oh oh oh,
Uh oh, Uh oh, Uh oh

Just watch me disappear
Track Name: You Don't Need to Love Me
You say that you love me
Once I said it too
And you say
And you say
But I got no time for you

Throw me the shotgun
You take the wheel
Sword in the back seat
This shit is real

You don’t need to love me
You don’t need to love me
You don’t need to love me
You just need to survive
You don’t need to love me
You don’t need to love me
You don’t need to love me
Now shut up and drive

The dead all around us
We’re knee deep in gore
And you want
And you want
You wanna talk some more

Locked up and loaded
I’ve got your back
Boards on the windows
We’re under attack

You don’t need to love me
You don’t need to love me
You don’t need to love me
You just need to survive
You don’t need to love me
You don’t need to love me
You don’t need to love me
Now shut up and drive

(The dead are walking) Don’t make me hate you
(The dead are walking) I can’t go it alone
(The dead are walking) All that we cared for is dead and gone

(The dead are walking) That time I left you
(The dead are walking) It was a different world
(The dead are walking) No we can’t have coffee I’m a different girl


Overrun and desperate
The barricades are down
Load up the Humvee
We gotta get out of town

You don’t need to love me
You don’t need to love me
You don’t need to love me
You just need to survive
You don’t need to love me
You don’t need to love me
You don’t need to love me
Now shut up and drive
Track Name: Levittown Girl
Parkway’s got you down tonight
Cloudy vision on the red tail lights
The girls are waiting down at Faddy Malone’s
You know you’re with your crowd but still you’re feeling all on your own

Mom and Dad are fighting cause they got no more cash
The college application was just thrown in the trash
You got no more patience and you’re ready to scream
It’s getting harder to laugh it’s getting harder to breathe

Levittown girl you gotta get out of here
Levittown girl you gotta disappear
They’re taking your dreams and handing you penny beers
Get get get get
Get out of here

Your heading down the turnpike cause driving kills time
You feel the door closing your crossing that line
Your friends are no use you’ve heard all that stuff
Sooner or later the mall’s not enough

Levittown girl you gotta get out of here
Levittown girl you gotta disappear
They’re taking your dreams and handing you penny beers
Get get get get
Get out of here

Late night, coffee shop and you write it all down
You’ve lived and you’ve loved and you’ve lost in this town
The waitress walks over and fills up your cup
She never had more but she never gave up

The pages are filled now your coffee is cold
If you stay here waiting your life has been sold
Running down Hempstead like it’s some kind of race
The rain pouring down and the tears on your face

Levittown girl you gotta get out of here
Levittown girl you gotta disappear
They’re taking your dreams, they’re playing your fears
Get get get get
Get out of here
Track Name: Forget About It
I say "I love you."
You say you need me.
You say you want me.
I say, "Forget about it."
Track Name: Not from You
When you took your seat
I knew we had nothing
Long Saturday night
And nothing’s better than nothing

Don’t sit too close, I’m just having fun,
You can buy me a drink, but I’m watching the band
You gotta understand, you gotta

You are not the one I’m here for.

I want it.
But not from you.

Don’t go to far
Cause you’re going nowhere
Don’t think that a drink
Means I owe you a good time

I was having fun, now your creeping me out
Don’t wanna be cruel, I’m trying to make it clear
You gotta understand, you gotta

You are not the one I’m here for.

I want it.
But not from you.

Just go and play your D and D
Find something good on the T.V.
I do not want to make a scene
But you just make me want to scream.

I want it.
But not from you.
Track Name: Tell Me Something
Tell me, tell me, tell me you love me
Don’t stop now cause your thinkin of me
Come on, come on, come on now honey, don’t make me suffer
You know I can’t dance, but I’m a hell of a lover

Tell me something
You’re saying nothing
Tell me something

I’ll let you in but you can’t make me
I’m stronger than that and you can’t break me
Come on, come on, come on now honey, don’t make me suffer
You know I can’t dance, but I’m a hell of a lover

Tell me something
You’re saying nothing
Tell me something, right now.
