Revised song said to be aimed at riding the wave of popular interest in bitcoin, cryptocurrency

In a desperate attempt to regain their 80’s arena-filling glory, rock band .38 Special has hurriedly re-written the lyrics to one of its top hits. The band is said to be in studio now, with plans to release “HODL on Loosely” sometime in the coming weeks.

HODL On LooselyThe effort is aimed at getting back in the spotlight by riding the wave of popular interest in cryptocurrency. Guitarist and lead vocalist Don Barnes dismisses music industry insiders who say the new release is a desperate attempt to remain relevant.

HODL on Loosely

“We hear them chirping,” Barnes says. “But truth be told, with all of the Neo the band and I have purchased, we don’t need to make much from this recording. In fact, if Lumen continues to surge, we may choose to put the release out for free.”

Barnes says it took the band weeks to rework the lyrics so they were a perfect blend of equal parts Southern Rock and Mountain Top. He adds that .38 Special will make the song a centerpiece of live shows as the band rocks around 100 venues during 2018.

You see it all around you

Good crypto gone bad

And usually it’s too late when you, realize what you had

And my mind goes back to an ICO I left some years ago (The noob who told me)

 

Just HODL on loosely

But don’t let go

If you cling too tightly

You’re gonna get FOMO

 

Your bitcon needs some block to believe in

And a whole lot of space to P2P in

 

It’s so damn easy, when your earnings are such

To overprotect ether, to love B-Cash too much

And my mind goes back to the bitcoin I left some years ago (The noob who told me)

 

Just HODL on loosely

But don’t let go

If you cling too tight babe

You’re gonna get FOMO

Your baby needs some block to believe in

And a whole lot of space to P2P in

Don’t let it ripple away

 

Sentimental fool
