Loose Cannon

I’m continuing the trend of Rock and Metal music with an 80s Action Movie Cliche/Trope theme. This one is Loose Cannon, not attached to a podcast, just some the possible beginnings of a parody/theme Rock EP tentatively titled The Action Pact. The trope here, for the uninitiated is that the protagonist cop in a lot of action movies gets suspended from the police department for unnecessary or brutal force. Generally yelled at by the angry police chief. The following song is the hero cop’s lament.

Lyrics

Turn in my badge
Turn in my gun
Kicked off the force because I get the job done
I’m a loose
Loose Cannon

All I did was
Blow up a neoghborhood but listen
I only did it with some Really Good Intentions
There were Drug Dealers and Thugs
Everyone doing harm
But I am the law
And I know I got these really long arms

I’m a loose
Loose Cannon
Turn in my badge
Turn in my gun
Kicked off the force because I get the job done
I’m a loose
Loose Cannon
