Bro Hymn Lyrics - Pennywise

Review The Song (19)



To all my friends, present past and beyond
Especially those who weren't with us too long
Life is the most precious thing you can lose
While you were here the fun was never ending
Laugh a minute was only beginning
Canton, Colvin, Nichols, this one's for you

Ever get the feeling you can't go on
Just remember whose side it is that you're on
You've got friends with you till the end
If you're ever in a tough situation
We'll be there with no hesitation
Brotherhood's our rule we cannot bend

Whoa oh oh oh oooooooooooooooooooooh

When you're feeling too close to the bottom
You know who it is you can count on
Someone will pick you up again
We can conquer anything together
All of us are bonded forever
If you die I die that's the way it is

Whoa oh oh oh oooooooooooooooooooooh

To all my friends, present past and beyond
To all those who weren't with us too long
Life is the most precious thing you can lose
While you were here the fun was never ending
Laugh a minute was only the beginning
Canton, Colvin, Nichols, this one's for you

Whoa oh oh oh oooooooooooooooooooooh

love this song | Reviewer: ashee | 4/9/12

such a heart felt song, in the last year our group has lost a few people sadly all in their early 20s... at every party or get together, without a doubt, this song is played, every1 gets up and sings, dances, headbangs etc... tis always a great moment of rememberance when this song is played... thank you to Kev Stang for teaching me something new about the song. i originally had the general idea but didnt know about the details you provided. thank you:)

Great song. Great pit as well. | Reviewer: piss off | 6/3/11

Excellent song. Now, to business.

stacey - You are a young f%cking retard. Please learn your music, even learn to read, or don't comment on anything . Kev Stang tried to help you a bit by posting some of the songs history two comments before yours but I'm going to assume you are too f%cking stupid to read. Let me help you with the different versions...

"Canton, Colvin, Nichols, this one's for you"
originally by Jason, for his friends who died in a car accident.

"Jason Matthew Thirsk this one's for you"
after Jason passed, in fact his bro sings the last verse in many versions of this song

And now on to other business.

Anthony, you are a f%cking retard as well. More so than stacey. And a philly 'tard to boot. Sux to be you. Fuck Philly... AKA Sh!tOnYaSelfia. You asswipes spit on opponents cheerleaders & players wives, and then boo dead children. Fuck your mom and then die. ASAP. Philly = dregs of humanity.

Let's go FLY-ERS! | Reviewer: Anthony | 2/25/11

Do any of you West Coast people realize that for a couple of years now, that Bro Hymn is the goal song of the Philadelphia Flyers, the greatest team playing the greatest game in the greatest city on earth?

Tribute | Reviewer: Brad | 12/28/09

These are the lyrics for the tribute version dedicated to Jason. It's now played at the end of every Pennywise show in commemoration. The original names in place of Jason's name we're "Canton, Colvin, Nichols."

tribute | Reviewer: brian forge | 8/31/09

I just lost a close fan and a huge fan of my music to a self inflicted gunshot wound. My project will be covering this, with our crowd. Never has a song been so fitting... RIP Robby Adelfson (1981-2009)

Hmmm | Reviewer: stacey | 8/17/09

Thats weird. I have a different version of this song. I mean its still basically the same but idk its just diff. Like it deff doesnt say the dudes nae in the first verse or anything like that. But whatevvv still a good ass song

the Ducks | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/19/08

Bro Hymn Tribute | Reviewer: Kev Stang | 12/22/07

Jason Matthew Thirsk (December 25, 1967 – July 29, 1996) was the former bass player of the California punk rock band Pennywise. Thirsk, who had been in rehabilitation for alcoholism and who had also suffered from major depression, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the age of 28. The band, however, decided to continue and brought in bass guitarist Randy Bradbury from One Hit Wonder. The band then set about writing an album of new material which was made up of mostly anti-suicide messages. One of Pennywise's most popular songs, Bro Hymn, was originally written by Thirsk as a tribute to three of his friends, Tim Colvin, Carlos Canton, and Tom Nichols, who died in a car accident. The band re-recorded the song after his death as a tribute to their fallen bandmate, replacing the line "Canton, Colvin, Nichols, this one's for you" with "Jason Matthew Thirsk, this one's for you", and renaming the track Bro Hymn Tribute. It appears as the final track on Full Circle released in 1997, and also live on Live @ the Key Club, released in 2000. Justin Thirsk, Jason's brother and drummer from 98 Mute appears on the re-recording both on drums and vocals.

Reason of song | Reviewer: anynomous2 | 10/31/07

Lo dudes, I'm not familiair with the ducks because i'm from holland. What i do know is this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jason_Thirsk
Here the real reason is noticed from the song, and has really nothing to do with the Ducks. But in my opinion it's better to celebrate at whatever kind of song than getting depressed of it. But it is important that you think of your friends every time you hear this song.

"more dollars." | Reviewer: MALIZMA. | 9/17/07

'Acoustic Bro Hymn'. somber and slower.
Johnny Cash Style. no one can steal my idea.
because its already copyrighted.

Pennywise does not seem to mind. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/31/07

People who post stating that the Ducks should not use this song everytime they score a goal need to lighten up in a big way.

Pennywise appeared at the Ducks Championship Rally. They sang Bro Hymn wearing Ducks Jerseys when the players arrived. They are Ducks fans as well.

They don't seem to mind.

Also the use of that song at the game means more $$$ for the band.

nothing to do with the ducks... | Reviewer: bassplayer427 | 8/16/07

this song has nothing to do with the ducks scoring cheer or defensive cheer. i don't know the fans tend to do it while the ducks are on defense. i went to their homecoming game this year and they did it a lot.

this is just an awesomely sad song about friends who are taken before you feel it's their time, but you want to celebrate their time with you on earth.

clueless | Reviewer: theflyingcamel | 7/27/07

No, this song rocks because it celebrates brotherhood and the love we feel for the bros who are taken from us before their time, it has jack shit to do with the ducks.

mhmm | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/15/07

this song is amazing,and noone can deny it,no matter what..its gotten me through some touch times and pennywise is awesome anyways<3
