"Anything That's Rock 'n' Roll" as written by and Tom Petty....
Some friends of mine and me stayed up all through the night
Rockin' pretty steady till the sky went light
And I didn't go to bed
Didn't go to work
I picked up the telephone
Told the boss he was a jerk

Your mama don't like it when you run around
With me
But we got to hip your mama
That you got to live free
Don't need her, don't need school
You don't like your daddy and you don't like rules

So, see'mon baby let's go
Don't you hear the rock 'n' roll playin' on the radio
Sounds so right
Girl you better grab hold
Everybody's got to know
Anything that's rock and roll's fine
Anything that's rock and roll's fine

Oh oo oh hold me little baby
I'm a little bit shakin'
I'm a little bit crazy
But I know what I want
I want it right now
While the 'lectric guitars are playin' way up loud

See'mon baby let's go
Don't you hear the rock 'n' roll playin' on the radio
Sounds so right
Girl you better grab hold
Everybody's got to know
Anything that's rock and roll's fine
Anything that's rock and roll's fine

    General CommentThis seems like just a general "Rock for rock's sake" kind of song. There's no real big message aside from the title. But it's still a pretty good message. Rock on.

    General CommentThis song is awesome!! Can't believe there aren't more comments. I mean i guess it's just a generic rebel rock song but it's one of the best!! Tom Petty is just amazing, man.
