The Eliminator album was not without controversy. According to their former stage manager David Blayney (15 years as ZZ Top's stage manager) in his book, Sharp Dressed Men (Hyperion Books), the sound engineer Linden Hudson co-wrote much of the material on the album as a live-in high-tech music teacher to Beard and Gibbons. And, despite continued denials by the band, it settled a five-year legal battle with Hudson, paying him $600,000 after he proved he held the copyright to the song "Thug" which appeared on Eliminator.
You look like who you say you are
So scoot over let me drive your car
Roll down the glass and give me some wind
lock all the doors I'm on the loose again alright!
I haven't sat behind a wheel like this
since that job in 1956
Can't wait till I can do it again
can't keep my nose clean livin' in sin alright!
I had a friend down in Alcatraz
he had the money and machine guns stashed
We busted out June 21
we gonna rob, steal totin' our guns alright!
