"I Wanna Rock" as written by and Harry Wayne/finch Casey....
I wanna rock
(Rock)
I wanna rock
(Rock)

I wanna rock
(Rock)
I wanna rock
(Rock)

Turn it down you say
Well, all I got to say to you is time and time again I say
"No, no, no, no, no, no, no"
Tell me not to play

Well, all I got to say to you when you tell me not to play
I say, "No, no, no, no, no, no, no"
So, if you ask me why I like the way I play it
There's only one thing I can say to you

I wanna rock
(Rock)
I wanna rock
(Rock)

I wanna rock
(Rock)
I wanna rock
(Rock)

There's a feelin' that I get from nothin' else
And there ain't nothin' in the world
That makes me go, go, go, go, go, go, go
Turn the power up

I've waited for so long so I could hear my favorite song
So let's go, go, go, go, go, go, go
When it's like this I feel the music shootin' through me
There's nothin' else that I would rather do

I wanna rock
(Rock)
I wanna rock
(Rock)

I wanna rock
(Rock)
I wanna rock

I wanna rock

    General CommentI am pretty sure he wants to rock. I could be wrong though. Maybe it's about war.

    General CommentAlot of people take twisted sister as a hair band of the 80's who never really stood for anything. They could not be anymore wrong. Think about what it was like to be a kid in the 80's when this song and all other hair bands were around. The politicians were trying to brainwash everyone, and they tried too hard to censor music, therefore twisted sister was about rebellion. For instance, this song, they said, "turn it down...turn it off." They said, "no." See, it was all about resistance.

    General CommentIt was funny on beavis and butthead though. Same as most other hair metal if you ask me. Got a soft spot for the cult and that's about it.

    General CommentI don't know if anyone here has seen it, but there's been that documentary on rock music on vh1 about 10 times in the past year, and twisted sister was one of the bands targetted by parents of the 80's as being "satanic" or otherwise just a bad influence etc...so I dunno, I do see this song as an up yours to those little groups
