摇滚无用

Rainbow 1978 Long Live Rock Roll

当任何一支乐队再也不可能重现披头士的荣光, 当迷幻的呓语不能再撼动哪怕一张选票,当善于DIY的朋克们费尽气力揭竿而起夺来的控诉权和摆明立场的刺猬头被商业市场掏成可怜的时尚的空壳,当沉溺在电子乐和锐舞里的英国青年从车声隆隆的街道被赶回舞池,当摇滚乐在中国只能仅仅限于成就又一个少女偶像或者高价棚虫, 摇滚乐可能改变世界吗? 也许, 即便是相信的人, 也只能无奈地在吉他失真的狂舞里忘记这一刻的世界, 相对于黑暗里失声的喊叫,似乎中国的青年们只能躲在live阴暗的角落里, 多吹几次口哨, 再呷上一口啤酒, 仅此而已.

想想如果十年之后, 听着崔健和电台司令长大的人, 有幸进入了权利的垓心, 也许也会别有用心地像克林顿一样,利用乐队煽动青年的热情, 达到自己初来咋到的拥护, 那时会不会有人说, 中国摇滚的春天到了呢,而腹黑的政客同样也会在背地里暗笑: “摇滚乐啊…呵呵.”


“Hey hey, my my

Rock and roll can never die

There’s more to the picture

Than meets the eye.

Hey hey, my my.

Out of the blue and into the black

You pay for this, but they give you that

And once you’re gone, you can’t come back

When you’re out of the blue and into the black.

The king is gone but he’s not forgotten

Is this the story of johnny rotten?

It’s better to burn out ’cause rust never sleeps

The king is gone but he’s not forgotten.

Hey hey, my my

Rock and roll can never die

There’s more to the picture

Than meets the eye.”
以上歌词是_Neil Young_的_Hey Hey My My_.
