The five rules of rock
Here are the five rules of rock. Break these, and … well, you better have a damn good reason.
IT HAS TO ROCK (The Cramps)
IT HAS TO BE LOOSE (The Gories)
IT NEEDS TO FEEL SPONTANEOUS (The Saints)
SOME IMAGINATION DON’T HURT YOUR SCRAWNY WHITE ASS NONE (Huggy Bear)
SOME NOISE DON’T HURT YOUR SPOTTY WHITE ASS NONE (Sonic Youth ft Lydia Lunch)
DON’T LOSE SIGHT OF THE GROOVE, THE RIFF, THE REFRAIN … THE MAIN FRAME (CAN)
KEEP IT SHORT. KEEP IT SWEET. (Gossip)
IT HAS TO FUCKING ROCK (EMA)
P.S. If it was that easy to get right, don’t you think everyone would be doing it?
