Lynyrd Skynyrd has always been a band that doesn’t play around, so when they released a song called “Dead Man Walkin'”, no one was surprised.

Off their 2003 album Vicious Cycle, which also included “Gimme Back My Bullets” featuring Kid Rock as a bonus track, the song serves, to this day, as a great example of the band’s immensely strong bond. With a “If you mess with one of us, you mess with all of us” mentality, “Dead Man Walkin'” asks a very important question to someone who is face to face with someone who has done them wrong.

The song was written by Kevin Bowe, guitarist Rickey Medlocke, guitarist Gary Rossington, drummer Hughie Thomasson and lead singer Johnny Van Zant.

We can’t help but sing along when Van Zant sings the fiery chorus, “Light ’em up, lay ’em down/Take ’em out but there’s more of us around/When wrong is right and right is wrong/Oh there’s a dead man walkin’ tonight.

Take a listen to the rough and tough song below.
