GuyzNite Die Hard (Including 4th Verse) Lyrics + Bonus 5th Verse From Me!

I LOVE all of the Die Hard movies (yes even the 5th one). They are by far the best action franchise the world has ever produced and possibly one of the best movie franchises full stop. They tick every box to make sure that Christmas is enjoyable… That’s right, they are 100% Christmas movies. The first 2 because they just clearly are and then the final 3 by association!

Along with an awesome set of films there is an unofficial Die Hard anthem which was recorded by the incredible GuyzNite who sadly never got any real appreciation beyond this piece of music gold:

The original first 3 verses

Remember when we first met John McClane?
Argyle picked him up from the plane
And took him down to Nakatomi Tower
To meet with Holly

He came to get her back and to be her man
But Hans and his buddies fucked up the plan
And that’s about when everything went sour
At the Christmas party

And the terrorists were over-zealous
But it was sweet when they killed Ellis!
And, with a little help from Alan
John McClane kicked ass!

We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die as hard as we can!

No one dies harder than John McClane
Even when his wife’s stuck on a plane
About to crash into the Potomac River
On the eve of Christmas

And airport security kicked him out
But John McClane is just too damn proud
And nothing could have made him not deliver
‘Cause that’s his business!

And with a lot of fights and gunplay
He blew that plane up on the runway
And, with a little help from Alan
Holly’s plane could land!

We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die as hard as we can!

Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!
Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!
Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!
Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

No one dies harder than John McClane
Saving all the passengers on the train
But Simon wasn’t clear with his intentions
It was just a distraction!

And there was no way McClane could know
That Hans Gruber was Simon’s bro
And that’s what made it Die Hard With A Vengeance
With Samuel Jackson!

And the good cop wouldn’t miss this
Even though it wasn’t Christmas
He didn’t get any help from Alan
But only in part three!

We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die as hard as we can!

The later added 4th verse

Finally we’re back with John McClane
Now we got a choice, and the choice is plain
We can live free or we can die hard
As hard as we can

From taking on a terrorist he’s never met
To taking on an F-35 jet
With the greatest car explosions by far
This sure looks sweet, man!

And we know what the basic gist is
There ain’t no Alan, and it’s not Christmas
We don’t know but we’re pretty sure that
John McClane kicks ass!

We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die as hard as we can!

Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!
Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!
Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!
Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

Figures ‘n’ Films 5th Verse

Just for a bit of fun, I thought I’d have a go at making a 5th verse… There are afterall 5 awesome Die Hard movies now! What do you think, do GuyzNite need to record a new version with 5 verses? Can you come up with anything better?

No one dies harder than two McLane’s
Even though Jacks working for the CIA
He got out of a sticky situation
With a court explosion

From smashing up half the roads in Moscow
To stealing a car full of guns
They ended up going to Chernobyl
To blow some more shit up

By now we know that the basic gist is
That there ain’t no Alan, and it’s still not Christmas
We always knew that two McClanes
Could kick some Russian ass!

We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die, die hard!
We’re gonna die, die, die as hard as we can!

Yippee-ki-yay, mother Russia!
Yippee-ki-yay, mother Russia!
Yippee-ki-yay, mother Russia!
Yippee-ki-yay, mother Russia!
