Top 10 Songs with Music-Related LinesMetal_Treasure In this list I tried to include very diverse songs, mentioning and even discussing different music genres, trends, musicians from different decades. Songs are also from different genres. And the songs cover the entire spectrum from love to hate and everything in between.
The Top Ten
He mentioned Rock and Roll, Heavy Metal, Punk rock, Elvis Presley, British Beatlemania,
Bob Dylan, Buddy Holly, Sergei Prokofiev, and more. - Metal_Treasure
"Today's music ain't got the same soul
I like that old time rock 'n' roll
Don't try to take me to a disco" - Metal_Treasure
"I love rock and roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock and roll yeah
'Cause it soothes my soul yeah" - Metal_Treasure
He mentioned Rock and Roll, disco, new wave:
"Turned on the radio
Sounded like a disco
Must've turned the dial for a couple of miles
But I couldn't find no rock 'n roll
This computerized crap ain't gettin' me off
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock
London to L.A.,
Talking' 'bout the new wave
For a couple of bucks you get a weird haircut
And waste your life away
Around the world or around the block
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock" - Metal_Treasure
It's a song of 1984 and I was surprised he said "computerized crap" - I thought that similar reactions to computerized music emerged later. - Metal_Treasure
'Computerized crap' wow, someone with this opinion in '84... interesting. Fortunately, after '85 most of the hit songs weren't computerized and in the '90s acoustic works were more popular than computerized ones.
There are lines mentioning music, record, Frank Zappa.
"We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around" - Metal_Treasure
"You're the Phantom of the Opera, you're the devil, you're just out to scare." - Metal_Treasure
Wow, I just discovered this one's missing
It's all about '50 music
How did I forget it? Thanks for adding it. - Metal_Treasure
This song is originally in German but has at least 2 English versions and the lines below are a compilation of both:
He mentioned rock, punk, rock and roll, piano, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
"He was a Punker
He had debts, for he drank
But all the women loved him
(And they shouted):
Come and rock me Amadeus
He was the first punk ever to set foot on this earth.
He was a genius from the day of his birth.
He could play the piano like a ring and a bell
His mind was on rock and roll and having fun" - Metal_Treasure
He mentioned Beethoven, rhythm and blues, DJ, the blues, Tchaikovsky, rocking' rhythm record, and jukebox. But my favorite line is:
"Roll over Beethoven
And tell Tchaikovsky the news" - Metal_Treasure
"Heavy metal maniac
I'm a heavy metal maniac" - Metal_Treasure
The song discusses Modern rock VS Pop:
"And on the napkin silk
She weaves a manuscript with skill
An intro, outro, middle 8
A tapestry of words
A subtle gift to modern rock
She says "be popular, play pop"
And you will win my love" - Metal_Treasure
You can't kill the metal
The metal will live on
Punk-Rock tried to kill the metal
But they failed, as they were smite to the ground
New-wave tried to kill the metal
But they failed, as they were stricken down to the ground
Grunge tried to kill the metal Ha,hahaaha
They failed, as they were thrown to the ground
No-one can destroy the metal
The metal will strike you down with a vicious blow
We are the vanquished foes of the metal
We tried to win for why we do not know
New-wave tried to destroy the metal, but the metal had its way
Grunge then tried to dethrone the metal, but metal was in the way
Punk-rock tried to destroy the metal, but metal was much too strong
Techno tried to defile the metal, but techno was proven wrong
It comes from hell! - Metal_Treasure
They mentioned old skipping record, Frank Sinatra, radio station.
"A faintly glimmering radio station.
While Frank Sinatra sings Stormy Weather,
The flies and spiders get along together,
Cobwebs fall on an old skipping record." - Metal_Treasure
There are lines mentioning record store, Eddie Vedder, Alanis Morissette, rock star, grunge, music video channel.
"Spokesman for the disaffected grunge generation" - Metal_Treasure
When we're in town speakers explode
We don't attract wimps 'cause we're too loud
Just true metal people that's Manowar's crowd - Metal_Treasure
"It's a pandemic
It's a metal disease" - Metal_Treasure
There are lines mentioning rock and roll, juke box, musical life, guitar.
"Let me tell you what it's all about
Modern times rock and roll" - Metal_Treasure
I know a whoopee spot
Where the gin is cold
But the piano's hot
It's just a noisy hall
Where there's a nightly brawl
And all that jazz
Slick your hair
And wear your buckle shoes
And all that jazz
I hear that Father Dipp
Is gonna blow the blues
And all that jazz - Metal_Treasure
"Metal militia for your sacrifice" - Metal_Treasure
"I shout out I am a dirty punk
Gonna rock your neighborhood" - Metal_Treasure
Too bad the song itself hardly metal lol
There are lines mentioning power chords, headbanging, guitars, heavy metal.
"What do you want?
Heavy metal, heavy metal! " - Metal_Treasure
Lines mentioning metal, black metal, power amps, rock 'n roll.
It's a quite weird song which doesn't mean bad though - a song titled Black Metal that isn't a black metal song with lyrics about rock 'n roll:

Not a big Limp Bizkit fan"

"When did Motley Crue become classic rock?

There's also a reference to Whitesnake but I didn't put it here because of the language. - Gg2000
The song was written and recorded in 1959 as a memorial tribute to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper, who infamously died in a plane crash together. Each verse name-checks one of the singers. Eddie himself would die in a car accident a year later. - Gg2000
Many references to songs, and rock and roll:
"Good Golly, said little Miss Molly
When she was rocking' in the house of blue light
Tutti Frutti was oh so rooty
When she was rocking' to the east and west
Lucille was oh so real
Some people gonna rock, some people gonna roll
Gonna rock and roll down to New Orleans" - Metal_Treasure
I forgot about this one- it's one of my favorites! Thanks for adding it! - Gg2000
"I love it loud, let's push it higher
Until the gain shows just red light
I love it true and played with fire
I enjoy a battle without fight
What I hear I adhere
Have no fear, say sincere
Are you metal? ” - Metal_Treasure
"Like a supersonic blast
We have come to show the world
That we have come to last
There ain't no way to stop us
And you'll never kill our pride
'Cause it's not only music
It's a chosen way of life
And our world has got no borders
And in union we all stand
'Cause Heavy Metal is our promised land
'Cause it's a Heavy Metal universe
With a Heavy Metal sound" - Metal_Treasure
Written about the famous Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, it refers to some of the people who appeared there, including Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Ravi Shankar, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds, Hugh Maskela, and Brian Jones (who attended the event as an emcee). At the end, he sings the line "I think that maybe I'm dreaming", which comes from the Byrds song "Renaissance Fair"; appropriately enough, Renaissance Fair was the first song the Byrds played in their set at Monterey. - Gg2000
