Real Lyrics -> Boasts in Song Lyrics -> Metallica

A lot of rap music features the singer openly boasting. I'm looking for examples of boasts that are unrealistic.

Metallica's, "Hit the Lights"
The Boasting Lyrics:
No life 'till leather. We're gonna kick some *ss tonight! We've got the metal madness. When our fans start screaming it's right! --later-- You know the band's insane. We're gonna blow this place away! With volume higher than anything today! The only way, yeah! When we start to rock we never want to stop again! Hit the lights!
They're bragging about how much they "rock" abd are better than other bands. (While at the time it was true, it still qualifies)

Metallica's, "Whiplash"
The Boasting Lyrics:
The show is through, the metal's gone, it's time to hit the road. Another town, another gig, again we will explode. Hotel rooms and moterways, life out here is raw. We'll never stop, well never quit 'cause we're Metallica!
The only song in Metallica's history where they mention the name of their band. Actually, pretty much all of the "Kill 'Em All" album could be considered boasting. (In live performances James chasnge the lyrics to "'cause YOU'RE Metallica!" which is a lot more generous.)
