Bad Company (song)


Bad Company (song)

"Bad Company" is a song from the band, Bad Company's album "Bad Company".It is notable as one of the few songs where the artist, album and song names are the same. Other examples include Black Sabbath, Bad Religion, Iron Maiden, Europe and Hellyeah.

The song's meaning comes from the movie of the same name featuring Jeff Bridges, and Barry Brown. The same introductory three chords heard in the introduction of the song, can be heard within the movie as well.1

Timothy McVeigh, the terrorist responsible for the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Alfred Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was quoted as saying as he fled the site of the bombing, he thought of a specific "Bad Company" lyric - "..dirty for dirty," heard towards the end of the song.Many web sites describe this, but many confuse that short phrase within a song as the title for another song.

This song is also heard in the 2006 episode of "The CW" series "Supernatural", titled "Scarecrow". It can also be heard on an Episode of The Simpsons where Ned Flanders moves to a new town and becomes a "rebel" by keeping an untrimmed mustache.
