Bad To The Bone is a 1982 song performed by George Thorogood and the Destroyers. It is heard in various episode of Married...with Children, often when Al is preparing to do something important.

In a number of ways, this George Thorogood and the Destroyers' number is Al's theme song, and is used that way in episodes such as "A Man's Castle", when Al's stomach and tabasco sauce together drive Peg's interior decorating class from the house. Likewise, in "A Little Off the Top" when Al's stitches heal, he breaks out of the downstairs bathroom to this tune, and points Peggy upstairs. Even in England, wearing his old high school football gear, Al says, "Let's joust!" to this musical backdrop.

The Bundy barbecue also uses this as its call to arms.

Trivia[]

  • Originally released in 1982, it didn't become widely known or popular until years later, when it was licensed to appear in movies, commercials and television shows, such as Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Christine and Problem Child.

Lyrics[]

On the day I was born
The nurses all gathered 'round
And they gazed in wide wonder
At the joy they had found

The head nurse spoke up
Said "leave this one alone"
She could tell right away
That I was bad to the bone

Bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
Bad to the bone

I broke a thousand hearts
Before I met you
I'll break a thousand more, baby
Before I am through

I wanna be yours, pretty baby
Yours and yours alone
I'm here to tell ya honey
That I'm bad to the bone

Bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad

Bad to the bone
