Tesla is an American hard rock band originating from Sacramento, California. The band formed in 1984 as City Kidd and was renamed to Tesla during the recording of their first album on the advice of their manager. According to the Love Song Songfacts, their name (and the inspiration for some songs) comes from Nikola Tesla, the legendary scientist and inventor who quite possibly is single-handedly responsible for the "mad scientist" trope. Originally, the group included Jeff Keith (vocals), Frank Hannon (guitar), Tommy Skeoch (guitar), Brian Wheat (bass) and Troy Luccketta (drums).

- LyricsSo you think that it's over,
That your love has finally reached the end.
Any time you call, night or day,
I'll be right there for you if you need a friend.
It's gonna take a little time.
- LyricsStormy night under jet black skies
Billy pulls into town.
Thunder rolled and the lightnin' bolts
Come crashin' to the ground
Cold as ice, hard as stone
- LyricsI'm a mean machine
I'm the kind you don't wanna meet
My middle is trouble
I'm a danger in the streets
The motors in overdrive
- LyricsTook a shot to the chin.
Looks like you just can't win
In this do or die situation.
And it's harder than it seems
To survive, keep alive and make your dreams,
- LyricsAnd the sign says, "Long hair freaky people need not apply"
So I put my hair under my hat and I went in to ask him, why?
He said, "You look like a fine outstanding young man, I think you'll do"
So I took off my hat I said, "Imagine that, huh me working for you"
Oh, signs, signs, everywhere there's signs
