Spinal Tap Lyrics

When there was darkness
And the void was king
And ruled the elements
When there was silence
And the hush was almost deafening
Out of the emptiness
Salvation, rhythm, and light, and sound
'Twas the rock and roll creation
'Twas a terrible big bang
'Twas the ultimate mutation
Ying was searching for his yang
And he looked, and he saw that it was good
When I'm alone beneath the stars
And feeling insignificant
I turn within to see the forces that created me
I look to the stars
And the answers are clear
I look in the mirror and see what I fear
Tis the rock and roll creation
Tis an absolute rebirth
Tis the rolling of the ocean
And the rocking of the earth
And I looked, and I saw that it was good

"This pretentious ponderous collection of religious rock psalms is enough to prompt the question, 'What day did the Lord create Spinal Tap, and couldn't he have rested on that day too?'"

Rob Walsh

In Spinal Tap's own universe, years later bearded tattooed hipster music journalists would describe Rock n' Roll Creation as an epic doom metal masterpiece.

Tommy Duncan

Would sound better in Dubly

Cameron Findlay

That's nitpicking

Rob Alexander

@Devin Terrio Well maybe making a big deal out of it would have been a good idea!

Devin Terrio

@Rob Alexander No need to make a big deal out of it

Eddie Van Halen went all PTSD when he watched this scene & most of the movie. "This shit really happens man!"

Michael Lubin

Blame the manager.
