A poem about Rock and Roll. Some songs are used in this poem. The following songs are used:

Symphony of Destruction - Megadeth
Shockwave - Black Tide
Enter Sandman - Metallica
Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden
Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
Cowboys From Hell - Pantera
Eclipse - Pink Floyd
Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns 'N Roses
You Really Got Me - Van Halen
Through the Fire and the Flames - Dragonforce
Push It - Static X
Should I Stay or Should I Go? - The Clash
Highway To Hell - AC/DC
Sunshine of Your Love - Cream
Hello, Goodbye - The Beatles
Stand Up For Rock And Roll - Airbourne

“Rock and Roll”

You call it devil sound,

Others pay no attention at all.

Others despise it and wish for it to fall,

But to me, the limits have no bound.

Devil’s music my foot,

To you it is a Symphony of Destruction.

Your ears bleed like Consumption,

But to me, it is a healthy Shockwave of loot!

Enter Sandman; go to sleep now!

Hard rock is not any Number of the Beast!

Find your Stairway to Heaven or enjoy a horrible feast,

Oh how the Cowboys From Hell will give you a cow!

Eclipse the mind, Sweet Child O’ Mine,

Where You Really Got Me.

But you don’t fool me,

By telling me it is not fine.

Through the Fire and the Flames,

Push It so you can try and make it so,

But Should I Stay or Should I Go?

You think its all for the dames.

The Highway to Hell is for you, not me,

The Sunshine of Your Love is black,

Hello, Goodbye, don’t you attack.

I Stand Up For Rock And Roll; I just hope you’ll soon see.

I see where you are coming from - BUT, music sets the tone of a people. Like drums in the jungle - the words are taken and followed by people. Loose morals in rock plus other behavior makes the people. USUALLY MUSIC TO SOOTH THE INNER BEAST. Rock music has a beat of causing disorder. The Queen in England banded BAGPIPES because of the spirit it gave to the SCOTTS army back in history. [ I listen to rock at times, was brought up on rock ] There is jazz - classical - country western - etc.

I understand what you mean. I just wrote this because my grandparents were getting upset that I was listening to Pink Floyd; they did not leave me alone and tried to stop me from listening to it. The last four lines are dark. This basicly was the point where I got fed up and just got mad.

Rock causes disorder at times; There was so much chaos at Pantera concerts that you either came out bruised or dead. True the history of rock has been rough. It is what I am into and dont like people telling me to not listen to it.

A little chaos and disorder is a good thing! :) I think this was very creative. I loved that you used parts of the songs. Also, love most of the music you mentioned. Good Job!

I absolutely love this!!! (Probably cause I think it sounds like something I would write myself. Is that an egotistical thing to say?) Anyway, this is so very, very cool. I recognized every song! Rock on my Pantera/Pink Floyd/Zeppelin fan friend! hehe ;)

Yes! Pantera is excellent! Same goes for Pink Floyd and Zeppelin! I wrote this one how long ago? Hah, my taste has changed so much from when I wrote this! I am glad you liked it, though!

I was just playing an Iron Maiden on bass! The Wickerman to be exact. It's pretty easy! And Maiden is awesome! Thanks for the comment!
