Bad To The Bone è una canzone di George Thorogood & The Destroyers datata 1982, contenuta nell’omonimo album. Sia il riff di chitarra che la struttura vocale ricalcano la celebre canzone di Bo Diddley I’m A Man (1955) ma lo stesso riff presenta una forte somiglianza con quello di Whole Lotta Rosie, incisa nel 1977 dagli Ac/Dc nel loro album Let There Be Rock.
Il brano è stato usato come colonna sonora di una miriade di film, telefilm, show televisivi, spot pubblicitari e videogiochi.

On the day I was born, the nurses all gathered 'round
And they gazed in wide wonder, at the joy they had found
The head nurse spoke up, and she said leave this one alone
She could tell right away, that I was bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
Bad to the bone

I broke a thousand hearts, before I met you
I'll break a thousand more baby, before I am through
I wanna be yours pretty baby, yours and yours alone
I'm here to tell ya honey, that I'm bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-Bad
Bad to the bone

I make a rich woman beg, I'll make a good woman steal
I'll make an old woman blush, and make a young woman squeal
I wanna be yours pretty baby, yours and yours alone
I'm here to tell ya honey, that I'm bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
Bad to the bone
