Rock And Roll Is Dead
Lenny Kravitz Lyrics


You think you're on top of the world
But you know it's really over
Runnin' round with diamond rings
And coke spoons that are overflowin'

Rock an Roll is dead
But all the money in the world
Can't buy you from the place you're going to

Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead

You can't even sing or play an instrument
So you just scream instead
You're living for an image
So you got five hundred women in your bed

Rock an Roll is dead
But it's real hard to be yourself
When you're living with those demons
In your head

Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead

Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead

Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead

Ooo-oooh, yeah
You think you're on the top of the world
But you know it's really over

Runnin' round with diamond rings
And coke spoons that are overflowin'
Rock and roll is dead

Can't buy you from the place you're going to
Ooo-oooh, yeah

Rock and roll is dead

You can't even sing or play an instrument
So you just scream instead
Oooh, yeah
You're living for an image
So you got five hundred women in your bed
Oooh, yeah
Rock and roll is dead
But it's real hard to be yourself
When you're living with those demons in your head
Ooo-oooh, yeah

Rock and roll is dead
Rock and roll is dead
Rock and roll is dead
Rock and roll is dead

Que gran tema, uno de mis favoritos de Lenny, es 100 % paradójica la canción y me gusta la frase el rock and roll esta muerto...es decirle al mundo con guitarras, batería; bajo SI CLARO!!! CLARO QUE ESTA MUERTO...de una forma desafiante a quienes creen q es así. Y obvio q también sobre los excesos del Rock....una joya.

Said Otero

This is like the perfect paradox, singing Rock'n Roll is dead while playing a beast rock riff.

Craig Nash

That opening riff, Living Loving Maid comes to mind.... homage or a borrow from Zeppelin?

ericgelders

Haha, thought of sth similar: Rocking out while declaring it dead!

Davy

What a great riff! So much energy!!!

A.J. Pinckney

Riff seems influenced by Johnny Winter's Guess I'll Go Away.

Raptor _TX

See, a riff doesn't need to be hard to be good.

Lourdes Almendros Zaragoza

I still remember the release of the single in Spain. I saw the video clip in a nightclub, it was fascinating. It totally described the music, the visual language and the photography of the 90's culture. Lenny, you are great !!! It is still current, unique

S.F Simoes

He plays rock in roll of a new era. He's a musical genius. 👏🏻🙏🏽👍🏻🎤

JPW

Killer tune once again by Lenny Kravitz. Ever notice how his songs transcend time? That's how you pinpoint greatness. Relevance no matter what time it is.
