Song Lyrics

Iconic Song Lyrics


I'm gonna be iconic, yeah
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
I'm gonna be iconic

Say you wanna make it on your own
It's nothing but a fantasy
Maybe you should grow up, let it go
Woah-oh-oh, woah, oh-oh

You're never gonna win, just go back home
Back to reality
Give it up kid, it isn't in your bones
Woah-oh-oh, woah, oh-oh

I'll remember every word they say
It's only pouring gas on the flame

They say I'll never leave a legacy
But one day, you're gonna see the best of me
Make no mistake
Whatever it takes

Knocked down, the story of a champion
Next round, I'll never be the same again
Wait till you see
I'm gonna be iconic, yeah
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
I'm gonna be iconic

I played it in my head a million times
Started with my destiny
Gather up your daydreams, say goodbye
Woah-oh-oh, woah, oh-oh

Kill the lights, feel the moment, this is it
Everybody's eyes on me
I always knew that I was meant for this
Woah-oh-oh, woah, oh-oh

I'll remember every word they say
It's only pouring gas on the flame

They say I'll never leave a legacy
But one day, you're gonna see the best of me
Make no mistake
Whatever it takes

Knocked down, the story of a champion
Next round, I'll never be the same again
Wait till you see
I'm gonna be iconic
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
I'm gonna be iconic

They say I'll never leave a legacy
But one day, you're gonna see the best of me
Wait till you see
I'm gonna be iconic

They say I'll never leave a legacy
But one day, you're gonna see the best of me
Make no mistake
Whatever it takes

Knocked down, the story of a champion
Next round, I'll never be the same again
Wait till you see
My legacy, so clear to me
I'm gonna be iconic, yeah
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Iconic
I'm gonna be iconic

Artist Info:


Simple Plan, a Canadian rock band based on their energetic pop punk style, fronted an emotionally charged, yet fun approach to lyrics covering life issues related to tales of alienation and teenage rebellion. The band, formed in the late 1990s, reached international stardom at the beginning of the first decade of the 2000s with some hits that captured the aspirations of a very young audience. Simple Plan continued to nurture a loyal fan base and made a name for themselves with dynamic live shows and philanthropy through their Simple Plan Foundation in support of a wide range of charitable causes.

Annotations and Meaning:


"Iconic" by Simple Plan is a song that reeks of determination against doubt and negativity. The first lines of the song even make it clear: "I'm gonna be iconic." Repetition of the statement not only does that but also sets a tone for the theme of the track: a burst-out longing for greatness despite all odds.
The lines are echoing a story where the character is being dissuaded by other people, as if we take such lines as, "Say you wanna make it on your own / It's nothing but a fantasy." That external disbelief rather goes on to strengthen the resolve of the protagonist than defeat him, as if we take the lyrics, "I'll remember every word they say / It's only pouring gas on the flame."
The chorus, "They say I'll never leave a legacy / But one day, you're gonna see the best of me," really sums up the core message of proving one's naysayers wrong to achieve your dreams. The song evidently uses the metaphor of a "champion's" journey to one who keeps rising from recurrent failures.
