"Get Drunk and Be Somebody" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Toby Keith. It was released in December 2005 as the first single from Keith's album White Trash with Money. It was also his debut single from his newly formed record label, Show Dog Nashville. It peaked at number 3 on the country singles charts. Keith wrote the song with Scotty Emerick.
This song is a typical working man's anthem in which two workers who are depressed by their mundane jobs celebrate on Friday by drinking.
The live music video was directed by Michael Salomon and premiered on February 15, 2006 on CMT. GAC cut the ending of the video out, because of its suggestive language (Keith tells the audience "Your ass is gonna be on television!" referring to him shooting the video as part of the concert.) During the bridge of the song, the lyrics pop up on screen so fans can sing along. It is a live performance clip that was filmed at a concert in Portland, Oregon at the Rose Garden Arena now named Moda Center.
"Get Drunk and Be Somebody" debuted at number 32 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks.
