Song 100 MPH • Performed by Cirith UngolOriginally by Cirith Ungol
Original version

Written by Greg Lindstrom. 100 MPH (miles per hour) equals around 160 km/h. It is most probably another reference to Rob and Greg’s obsessions with Ferraricars. The song was written by Greg, even though he had quit the band already after their first album. There’s a reference to the debut LP in this song: “We’re frost and we’re fire”. See also Ferrari.

100 M.P.H. is as uplifting as the title proclaims though the chorus is a bit silly, and overall the song seems like the band’s attempting speed metal which is not their forte!

King Fowley, liner notes, Jan 1999

 

Lyrics

Call it heavy metal comes on hard and fast
We’re the men who play it we’re here to kick your ass

Chorus:
Coming like a hurricane a hundred miles an hour
We don’t stop for nothing cause we’ve got the power

Our nerves are made of steel and there’s ice in our veins
We’re frost and we’re fire we’re pleasure and we’re pain

Chorus

Call it heavy metal comes on hard and fast
We’re the men who play it we’re here to kick your ass
