"Freedom Rock" as written by and Charles Thompson....
My name is Chip
And I'm different
I don't conform
I wear a different uniform

I'm out of the blue
And so you are, too
Let me sing about one thing that's clear
That nobody owns
The pleasure of tones
That belongs to a guy with no ear

They tried to give me advice
Down at the record shop
I said sit down boys
This may come as a shock
What's all I listen to
It's all freedom rock
How can you free me
When I'm free?
I am free

My name is Chip
And I'm different
I don't conform
I wear a different uniform

I'm out of the blue
And so you are, too
Let me sing about one thing that's clear
That nobody owns
The pleasure of tones
That belongs to a guy with no ear.

    General CommentThere used to be these ads on TV for this music compilation you could buy called "Freedom Rock". It was stuff from the late 60's and early 70's, Found the commercial on Youtube with a list of the songs in the description - youtube.com/…. If Frank was referring to this, then maybe it came "as a shock" to some people that an icon of alternative rock listened to all of that classic rock that many of the punks rejected.
