Here’s what Steve Perry has to say about “Gym Rat” - “The video was super fun to shoot! We did it at Genuine Fitness in Eugene, Oregon with the immeasurable assistance of Aaron Orton, the super stud who owns the gym. Combining bodybuilding, 70’s fashion and with a crucial cameo from fresh baked pastries, we truly had a leisure suit riot. Mega shout out to all the athletes who were super cool to work with and went with the video shoot to whatever Jodorowsk-ian place my spidey sense told me to go. Jesse Locke the director of Unlocked Films has such a good way with making people feel part an integral part of the production, and quickly getting the shot. But let’s face it, without the fit, sexy bodies of the men and women of the Oregon bodybuilding scene there would be no magnum opus that is Gym Rat. Thank you all.

The song kind of has pummeling, burly skacore vibe…maybe AC/DC meets Fishbone? My goal wasn’t to take the piss out of Instagram body culture and “clean eating" although there is some of that obviously. But the Juvenal inside me wanted the satire to cut, and draw real blood, so I (as your coach/ drill instructor) whistle the play dead to plainly state the awful "rule” that I believe many people in this culture have deeply internalized; which is that until your body is 100% perfect you will never feel worthy of love. Ouch. “

GYM RAT Lyrics:
I let myself get heavy
I was someone you’d never bone
One thing we value in Cal-if-orn-i-a is that you
You keep your butt cheeks toned (WELL)

To be a 5 star Baddie
You got to keep your carbohydrates down
To be a 5 star Baddie
You got to beat the other clowns

I work with pain like a chisel- GYM RAT
clipboard, visor and whistle- GYM RAT
Squeezing up a last repetition
I need it proud, devout and salty
I work with pain like a chisel - GYM RAT
Dumbells and squats till I glisten- GYM RAT
Let me see your abs then I’ll listen
So how you like me now?- GYM RAT

And when I’m all bent over
You’ll see right through my yoga pants
Keep eatin' clean girl I’m a fitness freak
There’s no filter on this Instagram (Noooo)

To be a 5 star Baddie
You got to keep your carbohydrates down
To be a 5 star Baddie
You got to beat the other clowns


All right, all right, all right, lets shake it off
We’re gonna take a little break
But we gotta get on this cuz ain’t nobody decent
gonna love you unless your body is 100% perfect
Hey I didn’t make these rules
All right here we go
Knees Up/Push it/ Sweat/ Do it Again
Knees Up/Push it/ Sweat/
No use to bitch about it…

To be a 5 star Baddie
You got to keep no carbohydrates round
To be a 5 star Baddie
You got to beat some other clowns
