D-A-D - Bad Craziness

The Danish rock band known as "Disneyland After Dark", is out on tour atm, last friday did they visit Stockholm for a show at Debaser Medis. The band looked to be in good shape and in excellent mood to offer a great evening. Sure, it was a great eve at Debaser Medis, where the band offered a string of awesome songs from their 30-year catalog.

Soon D-A-D will hit rest of Europe with their 30 Years 30 Gigs Tour where the German dates will be supported by the Swedish rock band Hong Faux, that will be a killer for the German fans!

D-A-D:s lyrics are often quite humorous, and sometimes also melancholic, resulting in funny, melancholic quotes: I grew up in a life-size pinball machine (from the song Laugh and a Half) Good-bye and many tanks (from the song Down that dusty third-world road) Can't win on a compromise, I'll rather lose on my own... (from the song Point of View) But you can't run away from trouble, Coz there ain't no place that far (from the song Jihad) I look at my watch 'n' look at my wrist, and then I punch myself in the face with my fist (from the song Smart Boy Can't Tell Ya )

The bands name that had to be changed after a threatening lawsuit from The Walt Disney Company. They have also used the names D.A.D., D-A-D, D•A•D and D:A:D, each name representing a period in the band's history. Their style of music is often categorized as melodic heavy rock.

Todays tune "Bad Craziness" is taken from the 4th studio album "Riskin' It All", released on October 10, 1991.
