Where did Rock-n--Roll fall off track?
All our 8 tracks and vinyl aint coming back.
And itís so sad to see,
Ozzy himself has fallen victom
to reality tv.
Music will never be the same again,
Because eMpTyV had to happen.
Whereís the music?
I never thought weíd lose it.
Iíll never be a true fan again,
like I was for The Trooper
by Iron Maiden.
Radio stations are dictators,
destroying our freedom of choice.
When was the last time you heard them play
Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd?
Tell me, where were you
the first time you listened to
Pinball Wizard from the Who?
Or when The Wind Cried Mary?
Did you think Jimmy was talking to you?
I remember it well,
like every single song
on AC/DCís Highway to Hell.
Or Led Zeppelinís Stairway to Heavan,
how many times did
you play that over and over again?
Or how about when
you and all your friends
would go to a show.
Spending every cent
to sit in the front row.
Youíd buy the bands tee
with the ĺ sleeves.
Now tattered and hangin by a fraid,
itís still your favorite shirt,
and you wear it every other day.
It didnít matter how the road was paved.
Jimmy Hendrix himself couldnít have saved.
But we wont forget
how the music made us feel.
Judas Priest and British Steel!
And how your Mom called it noise,
So youíd crank-it up louder,
just to make sure she
could hear it better.
I'm not taking anything away from the Rock of today.
Slayer and Metallica are damn good in their own way.
Randy Rhodes played guitar
better than you can breathe!
Name a band today that compares
To Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden or AC/DC
Nobody can play like Hendrix!
Or be a madman like Ozzy Osbourne!
Or hit that high note like Bruce Dickenson!
And no one can write like Jim Morrison!
There are many today that are quite similar,
but there is only one true original!
These are all facts,
and chances are
Rock-N-Roll wont be coming back.
So wear those metal tees with pride!
Donít take any crap from rap!
And keep Rock-N-Roll alive!
[even if only in you're heart]
