How We Roll is the fourth single released from the band's fourth album, Day of the Dead.

Background

J-Dog spoke to Artist Direct about the song. "We wanted to do an in-your-face, fuck-you type song. That's a chorus Danny had for a while that we never used. It was always in the air floating around. In the studio, we started making a super heavy beat with the producer. It's a song everybody's on and another 'fuck you' for us. It was never meant to be a single or taken to radio. It's just something we wanted to have fun with."

Lyrics

J-Dog: Nightfall and the day begins
I need the bright city lights as I start to descend
'Cause I keep it Undead till the very end
And I got some low lifes that I call my friends

Funny Man: (Hahahaha...)
It's some West Coast, beach bum, gangsta shit
Fuck a Hollywood hit, I'll ghost ride the whip
On the Sunset Strip, just me and my clique
And we running the streets so suck my dick

J-Dog: Six deep we creep and to the streets we go
Cadillacs and Chucks so we ready to roll
Funny Man: Just a couple of gangstas, Mimosas in Big Gulps
Smoking and swerving, coming straight for your throat

J-Dog: Get back when we enter the room
Get back 'cause we're digging your tomb
Get back, what the fuck you gonna do?
What the fuck you gonna do when we're coming for you?

Charlie Scene and Danny: This is how we roll out here
We’re packing heat 'cause it’s cold out here
Hold your own, don’t show no fear
Or you’re gonna lose your soul out here
(Roll...)

This is how we roll out here
We’re packing heat 'cause it’s cold out here
Hold your own, don’t show no fear
Or you’re gonna lose your soul out here
(Roll...)

Charlie Scene: Oh shit, yeah, here comes Johnny
He’s popping a wheelie on his fucking Ducati
Johnny 3 Tears: Oh no, yeah, there goes Charlie
Mad dogging shirtless on the back of a Harley

Charlie Scene: Let’s go, yeah, we ready to party
The best duo since Spade and Farley
Johnny 3 Tears: Let’s roll, hop in the whip and get gnarly
We blaze more spliffs than a young Bob Marley

Charlie Scene: Get some, yeah, get your dick sucked
I’m blazing a quick one in the back of a strip club
Johnny 3 Tears: You're our victim, forced into a sixsome
And ain’t nobody leaving till all of our dicks cum

Charlie Scene: So kick back when I flash this gat
I got more straps than Matt’s assless chaps
Johnny 3 Tears: So hands up, yeah, we’re lying 'em low
All cocked up and we're ready to go

Charlie Scene and Danny: This is how we roll out here
We’re packing heat 'cause it’s cold out here
Hold your own, don’t show no fear
Or you’re gonna lose your soul out here
(Roll...)

This is how we roll out here
We’re packing heat 'cause it’s cold out here
Hold your own, don’t show no fear
Or you’re gonna lose your soul out here
(Roll...)

Funny Man, J-Dog, and Johnny 3 Tears: Hollywood, where the fuck you at?
West side till I die and we on attack
Charlie Scene, Da Kurlzz, and Danny: 'Cause this is how we roll
J-Dog: Drop top and we ready to go

Funny Man, J-Dog, and Johnny 3 Tears: Hollywood, where the fuck you at?
Undead, straight creeping in the Cadillac
Charlie Scene, Da Kurlzz, and Danny: 'Cause this is how we roll
Funny Man: Undead, bitch, you already know

Charlie Scene, Da Kurlzz, and Danny: This is how we roll
Charlie Scene: I flex nuts 'cause my arms are swole
Charlie Scene, Da Kurlzz, and Danny: This is how we roll
Johnny 3 Tears: Chop shop and we're cutting up, oh

Charlie Scene and Danny: This is how we roll out here
We’re packing heat 'cause it’s cold out here
Hold your own, don’t show no fear
Or you’re gonna lose your soul out here
(Roll...)

This is how we roll out here
We’re packing heat 'cause it’s cold out here
Hold your own, don’t show no fear
Or you’re gonna lose your soul out here
(Roll...)

This is how we roll out here
(Hollywood, where the fuck you at?)
We’re packing heat 'cause it’s cold out here
(Hollywood, where the fuck you at?)
Hold your own, don’t show no fear
(Hollywood, where the fuck you at?)
Or you’re gonna lose your soul out here
(West side till I die and we on attack!)
(Roll...)

This is how we roll out here

Trivia

  • Charlie Scene mentions Da Kurlzz by his real name, Matt, in the line "I got more straps than Matt's assless chaps."

  • Charlie Scene's introductory line for Johnny 3 Tears, "yeah, here comes Johnny," is a reference to the famous quote said by Jack Torrance from the film, "The Shining."
    • "The Shining" is also Charlie Scene's second favorite horror movie.
  • Charlie Scene mentions that he and Johnny 3 Tears are the "best duo since Spade and Farley." This a reference to the famous film duo, David Spade and Chris Farley.
