"Live Life Hard!" is a track of the Soulfly album Archangel, released in 2015. The song plays similar to the way songs on the Sepultura album Schizophrenia typically plays, except it features shrieking vocals (a common element of black metal) from King Parrot's singer Matt Young, whom he sings all but one lyragraph with Max Cavalera singing the lyragraph that starts with 'Strike fast, strike first'. Many people claim that shrieking vocals killed this song that may otherwise be a great song without him, while some others love the shrieking vocals. Meanwhile following the thrashy solo and final chorus, there is a breakdown containing few random chants.

According to Max, the lyrics were written about "life on the road and how hard the road we chose is. Because, early on you have a choice to take the easy road, the pop road, make a lot of money and become a big rock star. Or you can choose not to go on that road and take the shit road, with less money and more bruises, but it's the road that we like... (laughs)."

Lyrics Edit

Live it and we learn it
And we breathe it everyday
Sacrificial soul - Embryonic brain
And the gutters and the drains
We seek - No other way
Stop, don't get ahead of yourself
The writing's on the wall - Evacuating hell
Burn the leeches - Stand your ground
Get the fuck out - Let's throw down

Strike fast, strike first
A storm inside of us
Draw blood, first blood
The levee breaks the flood
Old habits, die hard
The living sacrifice
You burn, we burn
Nobody moves, nobody gets hurt...

Go hard or go home
Go hard or fuck off
Go hard or go home
Go hard or fuck off

Live life hard! AAAARRRRRRGGGHHHHH!!!

Go hard or go home
Go hard or fuck off
Go hard or go home
Go hard or fuck off

Live life hard! AAAARRRRRRGGGHHHHH!!!
 
Hey! What the fuck did you say?
Get the fuck out of my way

I stand my ground
Motherfucker let's throw down
 
Hey! What the fuck did you say?
Get the fuck out of my way

I stand my ground
Motherfucker let's throw down
