    Default Song lyrics that mention Stephen King or his works

    In honour of RF's recuperating request. I thought I'd start a new thread.

    Post any song you have heard that contains a reference to Stephen King or one of his books. Note it HAS to be an actual reference to a King book, for example, songs that just have "Carrie" or "Christine" in the title will be declared null and void.

    List the Artist, the track name and the lyric that contains the reference. I'll start the ball rolling with a few:

    Artist: Eminem
    Track: Lose Yourself
    Lyric: "Mom, I love you, but this trailer has got to go, I cannot grow old in Salem's lot
    "

    Artist: Gravediggaz
    Track: Bang Your Head
    Lyric: "I build a house on top, of Salem's Lot
    Front porch, bloody, back yard, muddy
    Like Amityville, a family kills"


    Artist: Bette Middler
    Track: Laughing Matters
    Lyric: "And justice goes to those who pay
    Friend, these aren't laughing matters
    The truth is scarier by far
    Than anything that Stephen King could write"


    Artist: The Mr. T Experience
    Track: Shining
    Lyric: "Like a blinding brilliant thing
    Like a turned on electric ring
    Like a novel by Stephen King she's shining"


    Artist: Kanye West
    Track: Robocop
    Lyric: "Bout the baddest girl I ever seen
    Straight up outta movie scene
    Who knew she was a drama queen
    That'll turn my life to Stephen King's"


    Artist: Dr. Dooom
    Track: Body Bag
    Lyric: "My intention was to get even like Spielberg
    Throw like Stephen King, Children of the Corn on a swing"


    Artist: Fugees
    Track: Nappy Heads
    Lyric: "In all your dreams I write the horror flick of Stephen King."

    Artist: Ramones
    Track: Pet Sematary
    Lyric: "I don't want to be buried in a Pet Sematary"
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    The Stand by The Alarm

    LYRICS

    Come on down and meet your maker
    Come on down and make the stand
    Oh, I have been out searching with the black book in my hand
    And I've looked between the lines that lie on the pages that I tread
    I met the walking dude, religious, in his worn-down cowboy boots
    He walked liked no man on earth
    I swear he had no name (had no name)
    I swear he had no name
    Come on down and meet your maker
    Come on down and make the stand
    Come on down, come on down
    Come on down and make the stand
    As I crawled beneath the searchlights
    Looking through the floorboards of this life
    I met Doctor Strangelove's cousin, he bore the marks of time
    "Hey! Trashcan where you going boy?
    Your eyes are feet apart
    Is that the end you're carrying Shall I play the funeral march" (play the march)
    "Play the funeral march"

    Wasn't 'ride the lightning' by Metallica a direct SK reference?

    Yes it was http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...tning-20140728

    Where did the title Ride the Lightning come from?
    Kirk Hammett: I was reading The Stand by Stephen King, and there was this one passage where this guy was on death row said he was waiting to "ride the lightning." I remember thinking, "Wow, what a great song title." I told James, and it ended up being a song and the album title.

    The title of the album (and song) came from a passage in The Stand.

    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    The other 2 seem ok.

    A former choirmate is a DT junkie, and he recently recorded this with the band he has been singing with for the past several years. Not MY taste of music perhaps, but hope you enjoy!

    https://youtu.be/hZQzvFH0Amc

    Here is the same thing as a video for the band.

    Artist: Force of Evil
    Track: Disciples of the King
    Lyric: "Creator of the Dead Zone
    Turn our minds into stone
    Grandfather of Misery
    He's the storm of the century
    Tales from Castle Rock
    Brings the nation in chock
    From the flames of Carrie's hate
    To the Pet Sematary gate

    Like a silver bullet speeding the night
    Last man on the graveyard shift
    Goes beyond your fear when he appear
    Takes you on a sinister flight
    The cast and the crew, the God with the gift
    From the Shining to Christine

    Disciples of the King
    Pure evil he will bring
    Disciples of the King
    His legacy will scream

    Sometimes they come back
    The sleepwalker will attack
    The Dream Catcher sleeping though
    Fire starter is coming for you
    The Green Mile on death row
    The Creep show and the Cujo
    The curse of the clown
    The sickest one in town

    Like a silver bullet speeding the night
    Last man on the graveyard shift
    Goes beyond your fear when he appear
    Takes you on a sinister flight
    The cast and the crew, the God with the gift
    From the Shining to Christine

    Disciples of the King
    Pure evil he will bring
    Disciples of the King
    His legacy will scream

    Disciples of the King
    Pure evil he will bring
    Disciples of the King
    His legacy will scream
    Disciples of the King
    Pure evil he will bring
    Disciples of the King
    His legacy will scream
    Disciples of the King"
