"claim to fame" in lyrics

Chose a gun
And threw away the sun
Now these towns they all know our names
The death punch sound is our claim to fame

And that's why they call me

Cause you all look the same,
Everyone knows your name,
And that's you whole claim to fame.

Never miss a night,

Use my name as your claim to fame
Got my seal of success
I'm your bread

Rebel souls. Deserters we've been called,
Chose a gun and threw away the sun.
Now these towns, they all know our name.
Six gun sound is our claim to fame.
I can hear them say...
Bad Company, and I won't deny.
