Re: Worst Rock songs about Rock

The decade began OK, with the maturation of punk and the birth of New Wave, but yes, it petered out. The 1980s had terrible work from stalwarts like Neil Young. There were a few bright spots later in the decade, like World Party and U2, but for the most part, the best thing about the later '80s was it set the stage for grunge.

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.
This is the song that sprang straight to mind when I saw the thread title.

Falco's Rock Me Amadues is up there high in the ranks of crapdom as well.

Thank God for that song though, or else there would be no "Planet of the Apes:The Musical" segment on the Simpsons.

Thank god rock music is so much better today.
Well, oddly enough, I like mainstream 70s and 90s music, while less well-known 80s and 00s bands. I find hair metal of the 80s to have practically no appeal and I feel the same way about the best selling bands of today.

I love "We Built This City."

The worst rock song about rock? I've got one. It's an interesting song, and I actually enjoy listening to it because it's so... bizarre. But still, it's terrible.

"I Do The Rock" by Tim Curry (1979).

The 1960's is the coolest decade in the history of mankind. It would eat the 1970's and the 1990's for the same breakfast and then ask what's for brunch.

The 1980s was the hangover from the 1970s.

^And the 1970's was the hangover from the 1960's. See, any decade that results in a two-decade hangover....

That's why I didn't mention the 60s. Although I'm not a fan of the early 60s (with a few exceptions). I could say the same about the 50s.
