Nah nahs in songs


Recommended Posts

Good or bad, that is the question?


I was listening to the song 'Fuckin Worthless' which is actually a pretty cool ballad by a bad called Negative, but is ruined by bloody 2 pointless minutes of nah nah at the end.


IMO it is just lazy song writing.

Good question. It can be good in some songs, although I can't think of any examples and look forward to others on here coming up with some. Sometimes it is really annoying though, e.g. Biloxi's 'Somewhere In The Night", an otherwise really good song.

It's not a good or bad thing without reason for me. For instance, the best "nah nah" song of all time is undoubtedly 'Straight to my heart' by Mitch Perry and that song is amazing. But I could see how it may have ruined other songs.


Or is this the best of all time (are 'Sha la la's the same as 'nah nah's?):




Either way, at the end of the day if the song is good it's good. If it's bad it's bad. I think there'd be few occasions where the 'nah nah's would be the deciding factor.

Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'. Need I say more. BTW has anyone ever tried to count the nah nah's in that song.


As I was typing out the question that did come into my head

I always hated the 'Nah nah nah's' in Bon Jovi's "Born to be My Baby".

I guess sometimes it fits in, but sometimes I would prefer a cool riff repeated over and over instead.


That's funny because I love the 'nah nah nah's' in that song! :D

But then again, I don't mind 'em in any particular song and 'Hey Jude' for example wouldn't be half as good as it is without that great outro imo...

I always thought "On To You" by Hurricane was a pretty catchy tune...

That was the first song that came to my mind when i saw the thread title. However, in my case, those "nah nah nah's" in that track always annoyed the f*ckin' piss outta me. :D

    • Another band ruined by frontiers.
    • Yeah, sad news. Even though she was a quiet achiever in that group with Stevie getting most of the attention, she sings Lead on two of my favourite "Fleetwood Mac" tracks. "Little Lies" is a Killer. R.I.P.      
    • For me, "Run-D.M.C." in '88 on their "Tougher Than Leather" tour when I was 16. A bit left field, but I loved these guys in my early teens. They weren't afraid to embrace Hard Rock guitars in their music.    
    • I was there too mate. You can't beat the atmosphere of a concert "in the round". I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.
    • Keep a lid on it 
    • This one looks like a fun ride....  
    • I keep sticking with the band but my initial thoughts are that this is basically hookless. I sure hope this was just released as the first single cause it is loud and fast and isn't considered the best song on the upcoming album.
    • GENERATION LANDSLIDE (Cold Sweat / Lillian Axe members) – Ruling The Street Scene (2022) online sources · NOVEMBER 28, 2022     Comprising former members of both Cold Sweat and Lillian Axe, Las Vegas’ hard rockers GENERATION LANDSLIDE release their debut album ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Fronted by Anthony White, formerly of Cold Sweat and Cold Gin, GENERATION LANDSLIDE is a whirlwind of ’80s and early ’90s-influenced American-style melodic hard rock, complete with big hooks, singalong choruses and a feel-good vibe that continues throughout the entire ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Produced by White, the album kicks off with the ferocious ‘Little Miss Lonely’, then ‘Feel the Sensation’ follows with heavy gang vocals telling the story of finishing your day job and feeling the anticipation of going wild from seeing your favourite band in concert that night from a spiritual way. ‘Love and Pain’ relates the ups and downs in every relationship and the emptiness of being alone and ‘Are You Out There?’ is a tribute to the late Thin Lizzy bassist Phil Lynott. Highly Recommended   01 – Little Miss Lonely 02 – Feel the Sensation 03 – Nite Time Magic 04 – I’ll Keep Movin’ Along 05 – Love and Pain 06 – Are You out There 07 – Sweet Ellie May 08 – The City on the Edge of Forever 09 – Me in You 10 – Standing in the Rain Anthony White – lead vocals, lead guitar Sandy Stein – guitar Jonathon Swanson – bass Ken Koudelka – drums   BUY www.amazon.com/Ruling-Street-Scene-Generation-Landslide/dp/B0BFBV9HN2
