Bad Company are an English hard rock supergroup formed in Westminster, London, in 1973 by singer Paul Rodgers and guitarist Mick Ralphs, later adding drummer Simon Kirke and bassist Boz Burrell. Peter Grant, who managed the rock band Led Zeppelin, also managed Bad Company until 1982. Bad Company are most well known for their song ‘’Bad Company’’ off their album Bad Company written and recorded by Bad Company. However, Bad Company enjoyed great success throughout the 1970s.
"Bad Company" was released as the third single from their debut album Bad Company in 1974, although it did not chart (in America). Co-written by the group's lead singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke, the song's meaning comes from a book on Victorian morals. The song uses the same chords and piano figure as Joni Mitchell's song "Woodstock" from 1970.
Company Always on the run Destiny is the rising sun Oh I was born six gun in my hand Behind a gun I'll make my final stand That's why they call me
Bad company And I can't deny Bad company Till the day I die Till the day I die Till the day I die
Rebel souls Deserters we are called Chose a gun and threw away the sword Now these towns They all know our name six gun sound is our claim to fame I can hear them say
Bad company And I won't deny Bad, bad company Till the day I die Till the day I die
Bad company I can't deny Bad company Till the day I die And I say it's Bad…
