lyrics

They put you on a pedestal
Worshipped like a deity
When they were still alive
They meant nothing to me

You're only famous when you're dead
You're only famous when you're six feet underground
You're only famous when you're dead
You're only famous when you're no longer around

They don't care about you
Until you're dead and gone
But now you're in the media
Your memory will live on

You're only famous when you're dead
You're only famous when you're six feet underground
You're only famous when you're dead
You're only famous when you're no longer around

They're all buying your merch
With your band name on
They've never heard your music
It's just a brand of fashion

You're only famous when you're dead
You're only famous when you're six feet underground
You're only famous when you're dead
You're only famous when you're no longer around

Too little, too late
everyone's brand new favourite
But you're no longer around
you'll never know about it

about

Osmium Guillotine Essex, UK

Take some 80's heavy metal, sprinkle on a handful of classic rock, a zest of 70's punk, with just a light twist of doom. Pour in a few pints of ale and Osmium Guillotine is the resulting mess.
