about

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of AC/DC’s classic "Back In Black" album, Metal Hammer Magazine put together a kick ass cover mounted tribute CD to accompany their June 2010 issue and invited to be a part of the high voltage party by covering one of our favorite AC/DC songs of all time...”Have A Drink On Me” which was track #4 on the CD! For those of you who did not have a chance to pick up a copy of the limited edition collectable CD we are posting our track here as a free download for your listening pleasure!

Mick & I have always been big fans of AC/DC since we were very young, they were a part of the soundtrack to our lives growing up so we were both honored to be a part of the tribute CD because for us AC/DC represent rock & roll in its purest form. My Ruin has done covers over the years ranging from Black Flag to Nick Cave to Rick Derringer but this was definitely the most fun we have had recording someone else’s song and we even managed to capture our day in the studio on film in a video which Mick edited for you to check out so we hope you guys dig how we put our spin on the song.

We recorded and mixed it at Entourage Studios in North Hollywood, Ca. where we spent a few months recording our 6th album 'Ghosts and Good Stories' and we had a great time. Mick played all the instruments and he also sang a bit of back up with me and produced the track with Josh Lynch who also co-produced our new album.

Enjoy!

lyrics

HAVE A DRINK ON ME
----------------------------
Oh, Whiskey, gin and brandy
With a glass I'm pretty handy
I'm... trying to walk a straight line
On sour mash and cheap wine
Oh….So join me for a drink boys
Oh….We're gonna make a big noise

So don't worry about tomorrow --- Take it today
Forget about the cheque --- We'll get… hell to pay

Have a drink on me --- Have a drink on me
Yeah have a drink on me --- Have a drink on me…. Yeah…c’mon

Oh……Dizzy, drunk and fightin'
On tequila white lightnin'
Yes….My glass is getting shorter
On whiskey, ice and some water
Yeah so come on and have a good time
And get blinded out of your mind

So don't worry about tomorrow --- Take it today
Forget about the cheque --- We'll get… hell to pay

Have a drink on me ---Yeah have a drink on me
Yeah have a drink on me --- Have a drink on me
(Get stoned)

Have a drink on me ---Aw have a drink on me
Yeah have a drink on me ---C’mon

Owwwwwwwww!!!!
Gonna roll around --- Gonna hit the ground
Take another swing --- Have another drink
Gonna drink it dry --- Gonna get me high
Come on all the boys ---Make a noise

Have a drink on me ---Have a drink on me
Have a drink on me --- Have a drink on me
Oh Have a drink on me --- Have a drink on me

Have a drink on me
Have a drink on me
