"Whatever Happened To My Rock'N'Roll (Punk Song)" as written by and Peter B./been Hayes....
1, 2, 3, 4!

You want a part of me
You want the whole thing
You want to feel something more than I could ever bring
You want it badly
You want it tangled
I want to feel something more than I was strangled

I fell in love with the sweet sensation
I gave my heart to a simple chord
I gave my soul to a new religion
Whatever happened to you?
Whatever happened to our rock 'n roll?
Whatever happened to my rock 'n roll?

She wants it hallow
She wants it tainted
She wants to feel something more than she was naked
You want to hide away
You scared you'll touch it
I want to feel something more than I can ever take

I fell in love with the sweet sensation
I gave my heart to a simple chord
I gave my soul to a new religion
Whatever happened to you, rock'nroll?
Whatever happened to our rock 'n roll?
Whatever happened to my rock 'n roll?

You know you never decide.
Why you can't trust their lies.
It's so much pain you can't describe.
There's got to be another reason for living.

She wants your image
She wants your kiss
She wants to get inside your head and tell it like it is
You want it badly
You want it so completely
I want to feel something more cos I can't fuckin' breathe

I fell in love with the sweet sensation
I gave my heart to a simple chord
I gave my soul to a new religion (rock 'n roll)
Whatever happened to you, rock 'n roll?
Whatever happened to our rock 'n roll?
Whatever happened to my rock 'n roll?

    General CommentI love this song. The two singers are excellent. Especially the part of the distorted singer when he gasps out "I want to feel something more cos I can't f***in' breathe" - Well good song!

    General CommentThey're kind of shoegazerish. At least with the whole "wall of guitars" sound i.e. My Bloody Valentine and Spacemen 3. Great song too.

    General Commentlunatic96....I never realized it but you're right! The guitars are very shoegazer-like. Nice observation.

    General Commentmintie, they're not really a genre, or like they say "it's hard to label us" but it's close to indie rock.

    Anyways, love this song. Wonder why they named it (punk song) though.

    General CommentI would say they are alt rock, garage rock 'n' roll. As is the fashion. Anyway, I saw them live and they kicked ass. Still, I don't understand why they rereleased this single, there's loads of wicked songs on the album.
