about

The Vice Rags are a breath of fresh New Jersey Turnpike air. A rock n roll band that’s willing to give you the unvarnished truth, complete with three chords and a deadly hook, just the way you like it.

Though they're new to the scene, this Asbury Park-based band of Garden State natives has been a long time coming. Paul Rosevear (vocals/guitar) and Joe Chyb (drums) grew up together in the suburb of North Brunswick. Ten miles west, Jack Roberts (guitar) and Gay Elvis (bass/vocals) grew up together in the suburb of Hillsborough. Twenty years later, the two halves came together and The Vice Rags were born.

The late, great Tom Petty once sang, “Anything that’s rock n roll’s fine.” That about sums up the Rags’ attitude. If the music’s in your heart too, come along as they proudly wave the flag and humbly carry the torch—at least for a little while, before they spontaneously combust.

Track Name: Shut Up & Love Me
SHUT UP & LOVE ME

Well ya talk and talk
But ya don't have nothin' to say
Señorita, I believe ya
I don't need another reason to stay
See that sad-eyed puppy dog stare
Honey I ain't goin' nowhere
Why don't ya
Shut up & love me

Well I been around, I get around
I seen alotta things fall through
But all I need to see
I see when lookin' straight at you
I been down on my knees so long
Ya couldn't do no wrong
Why don't ya
Shut up & love me

Ya make me lose my mind it's true
I'm just-a little crazy for you
Why don't ya
Shut up & love me
Love me
Love me
Love me
Track Name: One Heart
Are you lost like me
Are you incomplete
Are you on your knees
Just like me?

Are you down so low
Have you lost control
Hoping no one knows?
Trust me I know

Maybe you could be the one I'm needing
Maybe you could be the one I call
Maybe we could be one heart beating
After all

Are you up all night
Hurtin' deep inside
Runnin' for your life?

And the kids won't tell ya
What the kids all know
They'll knock you down
And leave you for sure
Little Johnny and little Suzie
Cut you down so deep
That you can't see straight

Maybe you could be the one I'm needing
Maybe you could be the one I call
Maybe we could be one heart beating
After all
Track Name: Out On The Street
The blood is pumping
All through my veins
I feel it rushing
That burning flame
I look around
And I know I’m home
The wind is blowin’

Out on the street
Where anything goes
You could be my girl
You never know
Out on the street

The people shout
Bum cigarettes
Chase luck around
And play pretend
We’ll live forever
If we don’t sleep
The night’s not over

It’s almost 3
Buzz in my head
I’m so alive
Soon I’ll be dead
I don’t know nothin’
But tonight I’m free
I feel like something
