    ------ About the song Searching performed by Pennywise

Missing a couple lines from the chorus:

Tonight I will rage against the forces of fate
The tide is turning my way
You should know better than to f*ck with me
Tonight I will rage against the forces of fate
You best get outta my way
I'm not gonna fade away slowly

    ------ About the song Bro Hymn performed by Pennywise

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.

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?

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."

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)

Bro Hymn Tribute | Reviewer: Kev Stang
    ------ About the song Bro Hymn performed by Pennywise

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.
