Givin' Back to You is a track from The Doomstar Requiem and a scene from the musical special of the same name. It was written and sung by Brendon Small.

ConceptEdit

On their journey to rescue Toki, Dethklok is cornered in the street by zombie-like members of The Revengencers. Being vastly outnumbered, they surrender the weapons given to them by Edgar, and attempt to win the crowd over with feel-good pop music. Rockzo also appears and lends his aid.

The scene is widely considered to be a parody of Michael Jackson's Thriller; the choreography and wardrobe bare a striking resemblance to the iconic music video, and the overall sound of the song is consistent with Jackson's songwriting at the time. As described by Brendon in the self-written libretto for the musical, "Very much like the Thriller video, but we substitute crappy angry musicians for zombies." It has also been referred to as Dethklok's "boyband song" as the members are shown singing in four-part harmony and dancing in unison.

LyricsEdit

[Pickles]

Oh, what's that sound?

[Nathan]

It's the sound of angry musicians congregating...

We'll have to fight our way through!!

[Pickles]

Looks like we're not out yet

These musicians ain't our friends

Obscure and broke

They hate us for never helping them bloom

[Nathan]

They're holdin' us back

We're under attack

I could fight one or two

but not all of these dudes!

We need the band

There's too many of 'em

I can't take 'em all!

We gotta think like one of 'em!

[Pickles]

Looks like they got us beat!

Looks like we'll meet defeat!

What if we gave them no reason to hate us anymore?

[Nathan]

Gimme the pen

I'm gonna write a check

so they can buy some groceries and pay the rent

[Skwisgaar]

Takes my strings!

You could probably use 'ems

[Pickles]

Take my sticks and play the drums!

[Murderface]

Take my pick and play the bass!

[Nathan]

We're gonna help you rock this place!

[All]

The only way to get on through you

is givin' it back

Give it to you!

We will beat you

but we can help you!

It took some time to realize

that we are just like you

[Pickles]

I can't believe how good it feels to be

givin' to you

you're givin' back to me!

[Nathan]

Oh no, we gotta beat 'em!

But these junkies

they need us to feed 'em!

We need some drugs!

[Pickles]

I don't have none!

[Skwisgaar]

What's we gonna do!?

[Murderface]

Oh shit, we're fucked!

[Rockzo]

C-C-C-C C-C-C-C C-C-C-C C-C-C-C C-C-C-C C-C-COCAINE!!!

C-C- I'll fend 'em off!!

C-C- You save yourselves!!

[All]

The only way to get on through you

is givin' it back

Give it to you!

We will beat you

but we can help you!

It took some time to realize

that we are just like you

[Pickles]

It feels so good!

It feels so good!

It feels so good!

Oh no no no no

It feels so good to be givin' to you!
