Come and take it
"Come and take it" is a historic slogan, first used in 480 BC in the Battle of Thermopylae as "Molon labe" by Spartan King Leonidas I as a defiant answer and last stand to the surrender demanded by the Persian Army, in 1778 at Fort Morris in the Province of Georgia during the American revolution, in 1835 at the Battle of Gonzales during the Texas Revolution. Sunbury, Georgia, is now a ghost town, though in the past it was active as a port, located east of Hinesville. Fort Morris was constructed in Sunbury by the authority of the Continental Congress. A contingent of British soldiers attempted to take the fort on November 25, 1778; the American contingent at Fort Morris was led by Colonel John McIntosh. The Americans numbered only 127 Continental soldiers plus local citizens; the fort itself could not have withstood any concerted attack. The British commander, Colonel Fuser, demanded Fort Morris' surrender through a written note to the American rebels. Though outnumbered, Colonel McIntosh's defiant written response to the British demand included the following line: "As to surrendering the fort, receive this laconic reply: COME AND TAKE IT!".
The British declined to attack, in large part due to their lack of intelligence regarding other forces in the area. Colonel Fuser believed a recent skirmish in the area, combined with Colonel McIntosh's bravado, might have reflected reinforcements and so the British withdrew; the British returned in January 1779 with a larger force. They conquered and controlled nearly all of Georgia for the next few years. Col. McIntosh's defiance was one successful and heroic event which inspired the patriots as the War moved to the Carolinas and north; the Fort Morris Historical Marker is on Martin Road, Georgia. It is located at the visitor center for the Fort Morris Historic Site; the center is located at the end of the Colonels Island Highway. The marker memorializes the battle and notes the "Come and Take It!" response. In recognition of his valor of defending Fort Morris in Sunbury, McIntosh was awarded a sword by the Georgia Legislature with the words "Come and Take It" engraved on the blade. McIntosh served in the War of 1812 as an American General, still protecting the Georgia coast.
He served honorably. In early January 1831, Green DeWitt wrote to Ramón Músquiz, the top political official of Bexar, requested armament for defense of the colony of Gonzales; this request was granted by delivery of a small used cannon. The small bronze cannon was received by the colony and signed for on March 10, 1831, by James Tumlinson, Jr; the swivel cannon was mounted to a blockhouse in Gonzales and was the object of Texas pride. At the minor skirmish known as the Battle of Gonzales—the first battle of the Texas Revolution against Mexico—a small group of Texans resisted the Mexican forces who had orders from Colonel Domingo de Ugartechea to seize their cannon; as a symbol of defiance, the Texans had fashioned a flag containing the phrase "come and take it" along with a black star and an image of the cannon that they had received four years earlier from Mexican officials. This was the same message, sent to the Mexican government when they told the Texans to return the cannon. Replicas of the original flag can be seen in the Texas State Capitol, the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, the Sam Houston State University CJ Center, the University of Texas at El Paso Library, the Marine Military Academy headquarters building, the Hockaday School Hoblitzelle Auditorium, in Perkins Library at Duke University.

Ram It Down
Ram It Down is the eleventh studio album by Judas Priest, released in 1988 through Columbia Records. The album earned gold certification on 18 July 1988; the band toured in North America to support the release of the album. This is the last album to feature long-time drummer Dave Holland. In 1986, Judas Priest intended to release a double album entitled Twin Turbos, of which half would consist of melodic, more commercial hard rock, the other half would be heavier and less synth-driven. Columbia Records objected to the double album concept, the project was split into two separate releases, 1986's Turbo, 1988's Ram It Down. At least four songs, "Ram it Down", "Hard as Iron", "Love You to Death" and "Monsters of Rock", were written for the Twin Turbos project. Ram It Down would be the final Judas Priest album for 30 years recorded with producer Tom Allom. Allom would return as co-producer to the 2009 live release A Touch of Evil: Live, he would not produce another Judas Priest studio album until 2018's Firepower.
The band recorded a rendition of Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode", intended for inclusion on the soundtrack for the 1988 Anthony Michael Hall comedy film Johnny Be Good, it was played during the first few concerts of the band´s 1988 tour, along with the title track and three other songs from the album. The only Ram It Down songs to have been played on tours are "I'm a Rocker", during the Retribution Tour; the song "Thunder Road" was to be put on the album. Some of the parts from the song made it into the cover of "Johnny B. Goode". "Thunder Road" was released as a bonus track on the 2001 remaster of Point of Entry. Although Judas Priest's fanbase was big enough to push the album to gold status in North America, critical reaction was negative, arguing that the band failed to produce any new creative ideas, the songwriting was inferior to their past efforts. Halford's take on the rest of the album is that it was "a heavy record", with Glenn Tipton and K. K. Downing "really rip it up on a lot of those riffs".
Halford said the band recorded a cover of the Rolling Stones' "Play with Fire". All tracks written by Glenn Tipton, Rob Halford and K. K. Downing, except where noted. Judas PriestRob Halford – vocals K. K. Downing – guitar Glenn Tipton – guitars, synthesizers Ian Hill – bass guitar Dave Holland – drumsProductionProduced by Tom Allom "Johnny B. Goode" co-produced by Glenn Tipton, Rob Halford, K. K. Downing Engineered by Henrik Nilsson Additional recording by Bill Dooley Equipment supervision by Tom Calcaterra Artwork by Mark Wilkinson An unknown song was recorded for inclusion on the album but the tape was lost during a chaotic period which resulted from Halford's decision to leave the band following the group's next album and Tim "Ripper" Owens' hiring as his replacement. For this reason Ram It Down is the only remastered Judas Priest disc with no added bonus studio tracks, just two added live tracks; the song "Blood Red Skies" was released as a promo only single with a 4:51 radio edit, the album version and a 10:33 extended remix.
Although drummer Dave Holland is credited on the album, the band used a drum machine on a majority of the songs. The band recorded three tracks with pop producers Stock-Aitken-Waterman – two originals "Runaround" and "I Will Return" and a cover of The Stylistics' hit "You Are Everything. However, they were not included on this album due to a management decision. Pete Waterman calls them "probably the best tracks we did" and admits that "I dig the record out and play it to people, they're amazed that we made heavy metal." Around this time, Glenn Tipton recorded guitar solos for songs by another Stock-Aitken-Waterman produced artist, Samantha Fox, was credited on the track "Spirit of America"

Krewella is an American electronic dance music band from Northbrook, United States, that formed in 2007. The band consists of sisters Jahan Yasmine Yousaf. A trio, their third member and producer Kris Trindl left the band in 2014, their EP, Play Hard, was released on June 18, 2012 on Beatport, followed by its release on other digital platforms on June 26, 2012. Their debut album, Get Wet, was released on September 2013, on iTunes, their musical style has been described as EDM, dance-rock, dance-pop. However Krewella's style has been influenced by a number of electronic sub genres including progressive house, dubstep and bass, trap music and future bass; the band's name stems from Jahan's misspelling of the word "cruel" when the two began writing music, is not a reference to Cruella de Vil. Krewella formed in 2007 and consisted of sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf, whose father is of Pakistani descent, along with producer Kris Trindl; the three met as students at Glenbrook North High School. Their music is a blend of self-produced electro house and dubstep, with influences of many other EDM styles.
All three members of the band have "6-8-10" tattoos to commemorate June 8, 2010, the day when the three agreed to give up their careers and any other intentions for their lives, to dedicate all of their time to the band's joint music career. In December 2011 Monstercat signed Krewella. Monstercat promoted Krewella with social media campaigns and partnered with EDM YouTube promotional channels for a larger platform.

Krewella teamed up with producer group Cash Cash to make their sophomore single "Live For The Night."

The partnership has raised over $17,000 as of April 2014. In September 2014, it was announced. Trindl subsequently filed a lawsuit against the sisters for $5 million, claiming that he was unfairly "thrown out" of the band; the Yousaf sisters countersued, claiming Trindl had drug and alcohol problems, "pretended to DJ" onstage, resigned from the band. On November 24, 2014, Krewella released their first single following Trindl's departure titled "Say Goodbye." The track reflects on the lawsuit against the Yousaf sisters. On March 23, 2015, Krewella released "Somewhere to Run" produced by Pegboard others. In June 2015, Krewella's "Somewhere to Run" was featured in the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority's "Krewellavator" marketing campaign.
The spot was filmed in an actual elevator at the MGM Grand Las Vegas. Krewella released "Troll mix Vol. 14 - Return of the Trolls" on August 15, 2015, its title a reference to the time gap following the previous one. This mix is the first released after Trindl's departure; the hour long mix features a new track from the sisters, named "Surrender the Throne". It includes a new remix of their single "Somewhere to Run"; the sisters were featured on the single "Love Song to the Earth" alongside. In August 2015, it was announced that Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf had settled the lawsuit with Kris Trindl out-of-court; the terms of the settlement were not made public. Krewella announced in 2015 that they had been working on a new extended play, intended to be completed in time for a 2016 tour. From that time out prior to the release there were many snippets of upcoming music including the songs "Broken Record", "Helter Skelter", "Beggars", "Louder Than Bombs", "Friends", "Superstar" and "Marchin On"; the single "Beggars" was released on April 29, 2016.

Lewis Corner of Digital Spy said the song featured a "dirty, fuzzy bassline" and "grinding beats and one-night-stand synths" before comparing it to recent releases by Rihanna. MTV compared it to work by Rihanna, stated the song was a "whirling mix of tablas and robo-vocals." Jody Rosen of Rolling Stone said the song was an "unimpeachably catchy big-pop stomp, with come-hither lyrics and a string of moody vocal hooks." The song helped. Gomez stated that she had hoped to "create something fun, p
