My my, hey hey rock and roll is here to stay.
It's better to burn out than to fade away, my my, hey hey.

Out of the blue and into the black, they give you this, but you pay for that.
And once you're gone, you can never come back
when you're out of the blue and into the black.

The king is gone but he's not forgotten. This is the story of a Johnny Rotten.
It's better to burn out than it is to rust, 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, hey hey, my my.

    General CommentThis was actually a song by Neil Young, from his 1979 album "Rust Never Sleeps". Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young never did this song as far as I know. It's possible they did it live, however. They did more than a few Young songs live.

    This is the first track of the album, while the last track is entitled "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)". The latter is a heavier song with more distortion and whatnot.

    Lindsay Planer of All Music Guide:
    "On this track, rock and roll chameleon Neil Young single-handedly pays tribute to punk and foreshadows the grunge movement of the 1990s... The lyrics deal fairly directly with the brevity of life as well as the concept that underneath everyone’s veneer lays a decidedly more complex reality."
