Here Are the Lyrics to 'Thunder' by Imagine Dragons

Imagine Dragons are known for their catchy and inspiring pop-rock hits, and “Thunder” was definitely their standout track of 2017. The track peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, which was their fourth top 10 hit on the chart. It was basically a clap-back at all the haters who made fun of frontman Dan Reynolds as a kid. Hence, the "clapping" of thunder.

Even though most of the lyrics consist of “Thunder” being said over and over, test your knowledge of the song and its lyrics below:

Just a young gun with a quick fuse

I was uptight, wanna let loose

I was dreaming of bigger things

And wanna leave my own life behind

Not a yes sir, not a follower

Fit the box, fit the mold

Have a seat in the foyer, take a number

I was lightning before the thunder

 

Thunder, thunder

Thunder, thun', thunder

Thun-thun-thunder, thunder, thunder

Thunder, thun', thunder

Thun-thun-thunder, thunder

Thunder, feel the thunder

Lightning and the thunder

Thunder, feel the thunder

Lightning and the thunder

Thunder, thunder

Thunder

 

Kids were laughing in my classes

While I was scheming for the masses

Who do you think you are?

Dreaming 'bout being a big star

You say you're basic, you say you're easy

You're always riding in the back seat

Now I'm smiling from the stage while

You were clapping in the nose bleeds

 

Thunder Thunder, thun', thunder

Thun-thun-thunder, thunder, thunder

Thunder, thun', thunder

Thun-thun-thunder, thunder

Thunder, feel the thunder

Lightning and the thunder

Thunder, feel the thunder

Lightning and the thunder

Thunder Thunder, feel the thunder

Lightning and the thunder, thunder

Thunder, feel the thunder

Lightning and the thunder, thunder

Thunder, feel the thunder

Lightning and the thunder, thunder

Thunder, feel the thunder

Lightning and the thunder, thunder

Thunder, feel the thunder Lightning and the thunder, thunder

Thunder, thunder, thunder

Thun-thun-thunder, thunder

Thunder, thunder, thunder

Thun-thun-thunder, thunder

Thunder, thunder, thunder

Thun-thun-thunder, thunder

Thunder, thunder, thunder

Thun-thun-thunder, thunder
