Bret Michaels, the iconic rocker known for his hits with Poison and his solo career, has released a new single titled “Back in the Day.” This track is a raw and real rock song that was inspired by everything that the world has gone through over the last few years. In this article, we’ll explore the backstory behind this track and what makes it so special.
“I wrote this song to be a raw, real, fun rock song, inspired by everything that we as a world have been through over the last couple of years,” Bret Michaels explains.
This sentiment is clear throughout the song, as it channels a sense of nostalgia for simpler times, as well as an appreciation for the present moment. The lyrics paint a vivid picture of road trips, the freedom of the open road, and the importance of enjoying life with loved ones.
As Michaels explains, the song is all about evoking the great music and road trips from ‘back in the day’ until now. Road trips have always been an important part of Michaels’ life, and he uses them as a way to connect with his family and enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
“For me, road trips and driving with my friends and family are good medicine, especially as a type one diabetic,” he says. “I cannot explain how much I enjoy taking trips up the coast with my daughters. We turn our phones off and just enjoy each other’s company.”
This sense of family and togetherness is a recurring theme in “Back in the Day.” Michaels sings about cruising down the highway with his loved ones, turning up the music, and enjoying each other’s company. It’s a reminder that, despite everything that’s happened over the past few years, we can still find joy and happiness in life’s simple pleasures.
The song’s title, “Back in the Day,” is a nod to Michaels’ own personal history. He explains that he’s had his own personal RV since he was a kid, and he’s always loved hitting the road with his family and friends.
“We just turn the music up and have a great time,” he says. “That’s what inspired this song.”
Ultimately, “Back in the Day” is a song that captures the spirit of rock and roll, as well as the importance of family and togetherness. It’s a raw, real, and fun track that will have listeners tapping their feet and singing along. For Michaels, it’s a reminder of everything that’s important in life, and a celebration of the moments that make it all worthwhile.
Additionally, a massive stadium tour with his band Poison, for the first time ever, Bret Michaels is hitting the road for a limited run of live dates for his 2023 Parti Gras Tour.
