"Sammy Hagar Weekend" is autobiography, disguised as satire, and wrapped in parody. Bob Forrest wrote it partly about his experience at a September 1978 über-concert in Anaheim, California ("Summer Fest"), featuring Boston, Black Sabbath, Van Halen, and Sammy Hagar. However, the song also functions as a satire of the Heavy Metal Parking Lot culture. The parody comes at the end of the song, when the Monster transforms into a full-on heavy metal band, with pro gear, pro attitude, sweet licks, and slaytanic backward masking. Enjoy ... but kids, know when to say when.
Well, it's a Sammy Hagar weekend, It's a Sammy Hagar state of mind, It's a Sammy Hagar weekend, It's a Sammy Hagar way of life.
We're gonna drink some beer, Smoke some pot, Snort some coke, And then drive ... drive over 55, yeah.
'Cause it's a Sammy Hagar weekend, It's a big man's day.
