about

Leadfinger are a band from Wollongong/Sydney…they have been around since 2007 and released 4 albums through Bang! Records and Citadel Records…they play high energy melodic rock’n’roll with a big stylistic nod to the 70’s rock era and heart on sleeve lyrics and clever songwriting. Their 5th album “FRIDAY NIGHT HEROES” is due out in April through Conquest of Noise. Cheer Squad is anon album digital single, a sneak preview of what to expect.

Cheer Squad is a high-energy bolt from the zeitgeist, a song for the outsiders and underdogs of this world. It could have or should have been on the next Leadfinger album but we decided it deserved it’s own place in the world. All sales of this single will help fund the release of the new Leadfinger album on vinyl and cd…if you buy this release in the next month your name will go into a draw to win a copy of all 4 previous Leadfinger albums (on your preference of vinyl or CD) and some other goodies.

Thank you for being part of the Leadfinger Cheer Squad.

Track Name: Cheer Squad
Cheer Squad
(Written by Stewart Cunningham)

You’ve got your own cheer squad
I don’t need anyone
I don’t need anyone
Don't need anyone

You’ve got your own cheer squad
I don’t need anyone
It don’t mean nothing my friend
It don’t mean nothing in the end

I don’t need anyone
I don’t need anyone
Don’t need no cheer squad
I don’t need anyone

You and your whole cheer squad
They are your little fraud
They all kiss your rear end
They pretend they’re your friend

You’ve got your own cheer squad
I don’t need anyone
It don't mean nothing in the end
You're just a Facebook friend

I don’t need anyone
I don’t need anyone
Don’t need no cheer squad
I don’t need
Anyone
I don’t need anyone

I don’t need anyone
I don’t need anyone
Don’t need no mum and dad
Don’t need no cheer squad
Don't need no human race
I don't need anyone
Track Name: The Man I Used To Be
The Man I Used to Be
(Written by Stewart Cunningham)

The wheel of fortune makes no sound
You cannot see it turning round
The fortune teller has no say
When you will see your final day
Your journey takes a thousand days

It’s true what I say here
The Man I used to be
Is gone forever he is
The man I used to be
A tragic-comedy
The man I used to be
Is gone forever he is

Have you ever met a man who’s free
Everybody thinks it so easy
You can join the middle class zombies
You can’t change the world so run with me
You can’t change the world for free
But you can change your destiny

Your journey takes a thousand days
It’s true what I say here
The Man I used to be
Is gone forever he is
The man I used to be
A tragic-comedy
The man I used to be
Is gone forever he is
The man I used to be
Track Name: Three Brothers
Three Brothers
(Written by Stewart Cunningham)

3 brothers always fighting, never punching, surviving
They came from the other side of the tracks
And they ain’t going back

3 brothers always fighting, never punching, they survived
The children of immigration
Second hand clothes and worn out shoes
Living that long haired dream, ripped up genes
they know what it means.
3 brothers, 3 brothers
They lived in the shadows

3 brothers, they came from the shadows
and they ain’t going back
3 brothers they’re always fighting,
They needed each other to survive
3 brothers, 3 brothers, always fighting
They came from the shadows
But their time will come

They came from the shadows
But their time would come
Oh the day would come
When they ain't going back

3 brothers from the other side of the tracks
They ain’t going back
They fought their way out of shadows
Mothers teardrops they buried with her love
3 brothers, 3 brothers
They don't look back
They ain't going back
