Re: Worst Rock songs about Rock

Does that Kid Rock song about how much it sucks to be a famous rawk star, written before he was a famous rawk star, count?

Boo! Anybody who mentions Dee Murray gets booed.

One of my favorite moments in a record store back in the vinyl days involved this record.

I was a 3-4 times a week regular at the store, so it was almost, "Hi, Norm!" when I arrived. Twisted Sister was in a waterfall display right up front, hot on the charts. As I walked in and we all said hello, I impulsively grabbed copy of Twisted Sister, and holding the record in both hands, brought it down, hard, on the edge of the store's counter. CRACK! It split in two. I rotated it 90° and smashed it down again on the counter's edge. CRACK! I threw the record on the counter, now quartered but still sealed in the sleeve, and told them to add it to my bill.

It was the best thing you could do to a Twisted Sister record.

Re: Worst Rock songs about Rock

Nickelback's I Wanna Be a Rock Star is not only the worst rock song about rock, but possibly the worst rock song ever, with the possible exception of Kid Rock's current abomination-like rip-off of Werewolves of London and Sweet Home Alabama. Both are bad excuses for rock music for people who don't like real rock music.

Re: Worst Rock songs about Rock

Nothing is worse than a rock band singing about being a rock band.

No, wait. Yes there is!

A rock band singing about WANTING TO BE a rock band.

"Still Rock and Roll To Me", by Billy Joel. A great pop songwriter's detour into self delusion.

Oops. Dee Murray is Elton John's guitarist.

I've done my best to forget everything I can about Twisted Sister.

Snider isn't really just twisted sister anymore. He's in all those crappy VH1 programs, plus he tried to be the spokesman for metal during the PMRC crap.

Re: Worst Rock songs about Rock

Does the word "Rock" have to appear in the title? If not, then a no-doubter is "We Built This City" by Starship. It's a sell-out song about not selling out.

Considering how much I absolutely loved the Jefferson Airplane, to have Starship come up with this complete piece of tripe, well, it hurt me no end. It's like finding your girlfriend fucking seventeen year olds at McDonals...during her shift as a fry cook...while all the time eating a Big Mac.
