Montrose was the original Californian hard rock band, pioneering the kind of short and punchy songs that would be a template for later and more successful bands such as Van Halen. The band featured Ronnie Montrose on guitar and future solo star and Van Halen member Sammy Hagar. Rounding out the foursome on their Ted Templeman-produced debut, Montrose (Warner Bros., 1973), were drummer Denny Carmassi and Bill Church. The original line-up lasted long enough to make just this one album.

- LyricsIf you get lonely on your daddy's farm,
Just remember I don't live too far…
There's a red bridge across the bay-yea.
You can be at my place in less than a day!
So get on your bad motor scooter and ride!
- LyricsLord! Oh, yeah.
When you need a friend through thick and thin
Don't look to those above you.
When you're down and out, ain't no doubt
Nobody wants you.
- LyricsAll right!
Come on, now!
Got it in me, I've got it in me,
Ain't gonna quit until it all comes out.
- LyricsHave you heard the news? There's good rockin' tonight.
I said have you heard the news? There's good rockin' tonight.
I'm gonna squeeze you baby just as tight as I can
Tonight you're gonna know I'm a mighty, mighty man.
Have you heard the news? There's good rockin' tonight.
- LyricsStart, with the sun
And move on out
The future's in the skies above
The heavens unfold
And a new star is born
