Bucky The thrash metal based heavy grooves are relentless. High speed technical and calculated, yet intoxicatingly groovy riffs explode amongst a nostalgic heavy rock vocal that is both infectious and powerful at the same time. This never gets old.

about

Thundering Herd Durham, North Carolina

Built from the only salvageable parts from multiple defunct bands in a garage on a dead end street full of hot rod parts and liquor stills, Thundering Herd are poised to bring the world a brand of hard rockin' metal that oozes 50 weight oil and reeks of white lightning. A three piece beast of blistering guitar, hammering drums, and pounding bass from the Bull City of Durham, North Carolina. ... more

Track Name: Thundering Herd
Smell the burn Fly and turn Metal scream Loser dream

Burnin' steel Grind the wheel
Roll em out Cut the feel
Screamin' razors Bleedin' hard
Time of doubt Start the charge
Pumpin' hard and rollin' fast You know the feeling never lasts
Ecstasy on the dash Go for home avoid the crash

Smell the burn. Fly and turn. Metal scream. Loser dream

Fossils burn Now you know
Quest is on Time to show
Start the roar None alone
Pumpin steel Bring it home
Push it in and pull it out Give and take there’s no doubt
Green lights on it’s time to go Feelings come from below

Smell the burn Fly and turn Metal scream Loser dream

Smell the burn Fly and turn Metal scream Loser dream

Lyrics by Mark Binion ASCAP
Track Name: Stars, Bars, and Mason Jars
Gonna feel it alive Gonna hit it in drive Gonna live my life
Gonna feel it alive Gonna hit it in drive Gonna live my life

Talking 'bout mason jars Hot rod cars
Bloody brawls in the Back of bars
Cookin' up Sour mash
Race for cash Hand held tight
Gonna clash

Gonna feel it alive Gonna hit it in drive Gonna live my life
Gonna feel it alive Gonna hit it in drive Gonna live my life
Gonna feel it alive Gonna hit it in drive Gonna live my life
Gonna feel it alive Gonna hit it in drive Gonna live my life

Gettin' paid what I’m owed Gears explode
Standing tall just to Break a nose
Livin' that good old Dixie way
Don’t give a damn What you say
Cause I’m free

Gonna live my life the way I please
Cause I’m free yeah free
Gonna live my life the way I please
Cause I’m free yeah free
Gonna live my life the way I please
Cause I’m free yeah free

Talking 'bout mason jars Hot rod cars
Bloody brawls in the Back of bars
Cookin' up Sour mash
Race for cash Hand held tight
Cause we’re gonna crash

Lyrics by Mark Binion ASCAP
Track Name: Dead and Gone
One eighty proof Pissin' gasoline
Needle on the dash Pushin' one nineteen
Heart pumpin' Texas Grade A crude
Kick ya in the teeth If you ruin my mood

Feel life pumpin'
Feel it rushin
Feel heart poundin'
Feel it grindin'

One more load Down the road
Miles to go They don’t know
Burnin' hard Super charged
Dump the clutch Don’t need much

Four on the floor A fist full of gears
Look to the back Blue light nears
Ain't catchin' me Keep runnin' on
Hammer down hard Cause I’m dead and gone.

Feel life pumpin'
Feel it rushin'
Feel heart poundin'
Feel it grindin'

One more load Down the road
Miles to go They don’t know
Burnin' hard Super charged
Dump the clutch Don’t need much

Four on the floor A fist full of gears
Look to the back Blue light nears
Ain't catchin' me Hammer down hard
Keep runnin' on Cause I’m dead and gone.

Lyrics by Mark Binion ASCAP
Track Name: One Shot Down
Crack the seal and pour it around
Gonna line 'em up gonna knock 'em down
Ain't gonna stop until ole sun comes round
Gonna take more than one to shut us down

One shot down
Gonna hit 'em all gonna shoot 'em down
One shot down
Gonna hit 'em all gonna shoot 'em down

Keep em comin' on ain't leavin' now
Tip the bottom up and roll it out
Fill 'em up again we need 'em now
One more bottle down now throw it out

One shot down
Gonna hit 'em all gonna shoot 'em down
One shot down
Gonna hit 'em all gonna shoot 'em down

Can’t slow us down with closing time
Ain't done yet we’re standing our ground
Open it up and hit us one more time
When that one's done we’ll throw it to the ground

One shot down
Gonna hit 'em all gonna shoot 'em down
One shot down
Gonna hit 'em all gonna shoot 'em down

Lyrics by Mark Binion ASCAP
Track Name: CH3NO2
Ignite the fires That light the night
Time it right And start the fight

10,000 horses runnin' strong
Time is short don’t be too long

Still runnin' rounds
Another victim down
You’ll beat 'em all in good time
And tonight you’ll wear the crown

You roll in deep Your heart will keep
A furious beat For time is fleet.

10,000 horses runnin' strong
Time is short don’t be too long

Back through smoke
Stage lights on
Ambers glow strong
Green light GO

Still runnin' rounds
Another victim down
You’ll beat 'em all in good time
And tonight you’ll wear the crown

The tree counts down You have it in hand
Slammed to the ground All others be damned

Back through smoke
Stage lights on
Ambers glow strong
Green light GO

Lyrics by Mark Binion ASCAP
Track Name: Aces and 8's
Started out robbin' and stealin'
Gamblin' and card dealin'
Mauled by a big ole bear

Tin star upon his chest
Only he knows best
Dealin' out what he thinks fair

Stranger come and put a bullet in his head
Aces and eights were black now they're turnin' red
Stranger come and put a bullet in his head
Aces and eights were black now they're turnin' red

Wild Bill came to town
Gonna lay the law down
Six guns of fury found

Double dealers best beware
Cold hard killers stare
Put a man deep in the ground

Quick draw gun fight
Davis Tutt died tonight
Hickok lives his life

Found a home in Deadwood
Livin' it up and feelin' good
Gonna pay for all his strife
(First verse)
(Chorus)
Turnin' red (X7)

Lyrics by Mark Binion ASCAP
Track Name: Chopper
Nine and a half feet of badass comin'
Comin' to get to you
Nine and a half feet of badass rollin'
Step aside and let it through

Nine and a half feet of badass burnin''
Burnin' down the road today
Nine and a half feet of badass stompin'
Any who get in the way

One more exit down
Fly through another town
Leave a trail of heartbreak around
One more exit down
Fly through another town
Leave a trail of heartbreak around

Nine and a half feet of badass roarin'
Ain't takin' what you got
Nine and a half feet of badass ragin'
Just livin' the life you’re not

One more exit down
Fly through another town
Leave a trail of heartbreak around
One more exit down
Fly through another town
Leave a trail of heartbreak around

Lyrics by Mark Binion ASCAP
Track Name: 50W Soul
Gotta a 50 weight heart and a 12 gauge mind
Just rollin' down the road doing my time
Livin' the life that I choose
You roll snake eyes sucker you lose

The road is all I know
Feel it down in my soul
Got no place to call home
Live on terms of my own

Burnin' up the road kickin' up stones
Ain't lookin' for love just warm bones
Not gonna die before I’m dead
Not like you in your warm bed

The road is all I know
Feel it down in my soul
Got no place to call home
Live on terms of my own


The road is all I know
Feel it down in my soul
Got no place to call home
Live on terms of my own


Burnin' up the road
Kickin' up stones
Ain't looking for love
Just warm bones

Lyrics by Mark Binion ASCAP
Track Name: Some Assembly Required
Box full of parts I got a fist full of cash.
Hand them dollars over and I’m off with the stash
Invaders times two with a springer to match
Old rigid frame I pulled from my batch
Tear that engine down find the bottom full of sludge
Top ends burnt brown and the valves wont budge
Crack the tranny open it's got gears worn round
Gonna rebuild it all for the road to pound

Strippin' down paint to a bare metal frame
Cuttin' off tabs use a wide open flame
Shoot a coat of primer on it base coat's down
Next I got the clear for the ride through town
Rubber on the rims that will hit the road
Peanut tank mounted it was finally found
Bolt it all together and I wait no more
Kick the engine over hear a mighty roar

Lyrics by Mark Binion ASCAP
Track Name: Generally Better
Chewing on foam and seeing red
Laying down tracks pulled from my head
Fire burns hot and the floor gets wetter
Doing what we can to make it generally better

And the tape rolls on
General pushes hard you know
We’ll hammer out this song
One more take is gone

On the hill where Pershing’s found
In a building halfway round
One more time around
One more take is found

And the tape rolls on
We’ll push hard you know
To hammer out this song
One more take is gone

And the tape rolls on
General pushes hard you know
We’ll hammer out this song
One more take is gone

And the tape rolls on
General pushes hard you know
We’ll hammer out this song

And the tape rolls on
General pushes hard you know
We’ll hammer out this song
