Rock n' roll song (about rock n' roll)

May 15, 2008 4:47 PM

I was inspired by Cortex's argument here that "songs that explicitly talk about how great rock and roll are rarely rock."

This is a rhythm section-less demo of a song that is arena-rock huge in my head.

umbĂș, this is very funny. Nice job! And leaving out drums is the touch that brings it to the realm of genius. I'm so glad you did that.

I'd also add that this is a shining example of how the MeFi Music Challenge (even though this wasn't the result of a formal one) can lead to great things. Anyone not aware of what's going on with the Challenge now, please see here.

Agreed, flapjax. This is the sort of thing I'd like to see more of. Rockin. Well, not. But still.

Actually, I really like this arrangement at least for the first half (despite my fondness for self-reference and the awesome lyric "rock about rock about rock rocks", the opening is much better than the ending). I'd love to hear this handled by a full band.
