Lyrics

Call it heavy metal comes on hard and fast
We’re the men who play it we’re here to kick your ass

Chorus:
Coming like a hurricane a hundred miles an hour
We don’t stop for nothing cause we’ve got the power

Our nerves are made of steel and there’s ice in our veins
We’re frost and we’re fire we’re pleasure and we’re pain

Chorus

Call it heavy metal comes on hard and fast
We’re the men who play it we’re here to kick your ass

Written by Greg Lindstrom. 100 MPH (miles per hour) equals around 160 km/h (kilometres per hour). It is most probably another reference to Rob and Greg’s obsessions with Ferrari cars. The song was written by Greg, even though he had quit the band already after their first album. There’s a reference to the debut LP in this song: “We’re frost and we’re fire“. See also Ferrari.

100 MPH (Album version)

From release One Foot In Hell (1986/1999).

100 M.P.H. is as uplifting as the title proclaims though the chorus is a bit silly, and overall the song seems like the band’s attempting speed metal which is not their forte!

King Fowley, liner notes, Jan 1999

100 MPH (Demo Sept 80)

From released Servant of Chaos (2001).

(Sept 80) I think this version has got more energy than the one on ‘One Foot In Hell’, but maybe I’m biased …
