"Rock n' Roll Hall of Lame" as written by and Mojo Nixon....
It's a crying shame
What they did to our thing
All of the spirit
How to live they did drain
On the shores of Lake Erie
Man, there is a committee
It's a corporation, don't know nothing about fornication
A sick abomination ought to be cast out of our nation

It's a Rock and Roll Hall of Lame
Rock and Roll Hall of Shame
Rock and Roll Hall of Lame (Rock n' Roll, Rock n' Roll, Rock n' Roll Hall of Lame!)

Why'd they put it in Cleveland?
Well you know, it was because of the money.
Should be down in Memphis
You know that in your heart, sonny
Black tie, limousines,
Sure is a real hoity toity scene
Yeah, but spirit's all wrong
it's uptown and mean
Let me tell ya
Real Rock and Roll's about cheap electrical guitars
and master secret places that serve underage kids in bars

Not a Rock and Roll Hall of Lame
Rock and Roll Hall of Shame
Rock and Roll Hall of Lame (Rock n' Roll Hall of Lame!)

If it was really Rock and Roll
They'd have a drug ATM (I'd be there)
There'd be a drive-in movie theater
showing Thunder Road and Vanishing Point
It'd be a monument to teenage sex
They'd be handing out free copies of "On the Road", "Fear and Loathing" and "Steal This Book"
They'd be giving fake IDs to teenagers
cause if your under 21 but over 18 you should be able to drink
It'd be a Rock n' Roll, Rock n' Roll, Rock n' Roll, Rock n' Roll, a really Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but that ain't what it is
It's nothing but a big lie
Don't believe the big lie
Rock and Roll will never die (Bring it way down, boys)

As long as there's a 13 year old kid
As long as on the planet Earth there's a 13 year old kid who wanna masturbate on the playground and start singing like Little Richard, Rock n' Roll will be here
Cause Rock n' Roll is in the air, in your underwear, it don't care
Rock and Roll is not in limousines
Rock and Roll's not rich and mean

Rock and Roll Hall of Lame
Rock and Roll Hall of Shame
It's nothing but Rock and Roll Hall of Lame

1, 2, 3, 4!

Rock and Roll Hall of Lame
Rock and Roll Hall of Shame
Rock and Roll Hall of Lame (Nothing but, nothing but, nothing but, nothing but a Rock n' Roll Hall of Lame!)
(keeps repeating)

The Eagles? The Eagles! Who are you kidding?
These putrid pop pukes belong in the Whore Hall of Fame
That's where I'm going to put The Eagles
Oh do you think Otis Redding is going to be happy to see The Eagles?
He's gonna kick Glenn Frey's ass!
Fleetwood Mac? Fleetwood Mac! Jesus Christ!
What is worse than Fleetwood Mac? The Archies or something?
Oh Christie McVie, she's so Rock and Roll
She looks like a damn housewife
Why don't you go to Celine Dion's house and get butt naked and I'm gonna get on top of both of them, make a videotape, and make a lot of money!

Rock and Roll, Rock and Roll, Rock and Roll, Rock n' Roll, Ro... Rock n' Roll's in my soul!)

(That was pretty fucking cool!
They ain't coming to take Mojo)
