Long Live Rock and Roll

A song by Daughtry.

Well I was born the year the disco died
And U2 was in high school
Thank the Lord that they survived
I got my first taste of a Seger 45
And with that kiss I rocked all day and partied every night

We still argue about who’s better – Elton John or Billy Joel?
We still wonder if Kurt really wrote the song she sang in Hole
Now we’ll never stop believing it’s the journey of our lives 
So won’t you help me pour some sugar on these memories tonight

Sing it!
Long live rock
Long live roll 
Long live big guitars and music for the soul 
Sing it!
Don’t give up
Don’t grow old
Long live crazy nights and records made of gold
Long live rock and roll

Summer of 96 I got my first guitar
Played it till my fingers said “you’re gonna be a star”
Grunge was everything, at least it was to me
A Marshall in my Chevy Sprint just running down a dream

We still argue about who’s better – Mötley Crüe or GNR?
We still can’t believe Van Halen turned into Van Hagar
Now the record shops are gone for good and no-one seems to care
But me and you and all our friends keep living on that prayer

Sing it
Long live rock
Long live roll 
Long live big guitars and music for the soul
Sing it
Don’t give up
Don’t grow old
Long live crazy nights and records made of gold
Long live rock and roll

Woah ooh aah aah ooh
Woah ooh aah aah ooh
Woah ooh aah aah ooh
Woah ooh aah aah ooh

Went to bed in Cleveland
Woke up in Tennessee
No matter where I roam tonight I’m chasing history

We still argue about who’s better – The Beatles or The Stones?
They’re forever twenty-seven, Jimmy, Janis, Brian Jones
And we stand here in their memory cause the songs they still survive
So throw your lighters up and darling sing with me tonight

Sing it
Long live rock
Long live roll
Long live big guitars and music for the soul
Sing it
Don’t give up
Don’t grow old
Long live crazy nights and records made of gold
Long live rock and roll

Long live rock
Long live roll
Long live big guitars and music for the soul
Sing it
Don’t give up
Don’t grow old
Long live crazy nights and records made of gold
Long live rock and roll

Woah ooh aah aah ooh
Long live rock and roll
