(Bang Your Head) Metal Health is a song by American hard rock band Quiet Riot in Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s, released in their 1983 successful album Metal Health. The Guitar Hero rendition of the song appears without the guitar solo halfway into the song, wherein a bridge was placed instead. Curiously though, in the Guitar Hero II demo, (Bang Your Head) Metal Health was present as a hidden song, which included the guitar solo. No reason is known as to why it was taken out of the final game.


Well I'm an axegrinder, Piledriver,
Mother says that I never never mind her,
Got no brains, I'm insane,
Teacher says that I'm one big pain,
I'm like a laser, 6-streamin' razor,
I got a mouth like an alligator
I want it louder,
More power,
I'm gonna rock ya till it strikes the hour


Bang your head! Metal Health'll drive you mad
Bang your head! Metal Health'll drive you mad
Well I'm frustrated
Outdated, I really want to be over-rated
I'm a finder and I'm a keeper
I'm not a loser and I ain't no weeper
I got the boys to make the noise
Won't ever let up
Hope it annoys you
Join the pack
fill the crack
Well now you're here
There's no way back
Bang your head! Metal Health'll drive you mad
Bang your head! Metal Health'll drive you mad
Metal Health'll cure your crazy
Metal Health'll cure your mad
Metal Health is what we all need
It's what you have to have


Bang your head
Wake the dead
We're all metal mad
It's all you have
So bang your head
And raise the dead
Oh yeah!
Metal Health
It'll drive you mad
Mad ,Mad


Oh get your straight-jackets on tonight Oh
Bang your head! Metal health'll drive you mad
The bad boys are gonna set you right Rock on Rock on Rock on
Bang your head! Metal health'll drive you mad
Bang your head!
