Based on Remember the Name by Mike Shinoda, I added my lyrics, recorded the track and dedicated it to the poker legends: Daniel Negreanu, Gus Hansen, Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, Tom "Durrrr" Dwan and Sam Trickett. Please excuse poor accent and mispronunciations as English is my second language and I'm still learning it.

You ready?! Let's go!
Yeah, for those of you that want to know what we're all about
It's like this yo c'mon
This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill
Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain
And a hundred percent reason to remember the name!
Dan! - He doesn't need to win every hand
He just wants to be first whether it's the bluff or the call
He's going to fold every single hand, alone
In spite of the fact that some people still think that they'll beat him
But fuck them, he's got the read
It's not about the strategy
It's all about the salary and making some dough
Making the story - making sure his stack goes up
That means when he has it down Gus's picking it up! Let's go!
Who the hell is he anyway?
He never really talks much
Never concerned with status but still leaving them star struck
Humbled through opportunities given despite the fact
That many misjudge him because he makes a living from winning stacks
Put it together himself, now the Hold'em connects
Never asking for someone's help, or to get some cold deck
He's only focused on what he bets, his skill is beyond reach
And now the card unfolds, the kill of an artist
This is twenty percent skill
Eighty percent gear
Be a hundred percent clear cause Ivey is ill
Who would've thought that he'd be the one to set the pot in flames
And I heard him rock it with The Series Poker, "Name Of The Game"
Came back dropped underdogs, flopping the nuts
I'm like Phil man, why you had the craziest bluff?
This dude is the truth, now everybody's giving him guest spots
His stack's through the roof I heard he's fucking with Long Shots
They call him Hellmuth, the brat
And he's rocking hands
with Chan got him the first title he's hot
Found him playing Poker with God
What a fuckin' nihilist porcupine
He's a prick, he's a cock
The type women want to be with, and the pros hope he gets shot
Lots of years in the playing, impatiently waiting then blow
Now the record Mr. Hellmuth's taking over the globe
He might be crazy at times, but his read is crazily dope
You wont believe the kind of read that comes out of this dude's throat
Dwan! - He's not your everyday on the block
He knows how to work with what he's got
"Durrrring" his way to the top
He often gets a comment on his name
People keep asking him was it given at birth
Or does it stand for an acronym?
No he's living facts, got him rocking the deck
He'll get you buzzing quicker than a shot of vodka with X
Him and his moves are known around as one of the best
Dedicated to what he do and give a hundred percent
Forget Sam - Nobody really knows how or why he's just so good
It seems like he's never got tied
Because he wins every street and he wins every blind
And I've seen him at work when that style goes on in his mind
It's like a design is written in his head every time
Before he even touches the hand or checks in no time
And those kinda of bluffs that he kills with,
The bets that he fires?
Ridiculous, without even trying,
How did he do it?!
Yeah! Poker stars
