The Americans elected Dubya twice. The same Americans selected Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 songs that have shaped Rock and Roll. Like their choice for president, we don’t like their choice of songs. Run DMC, LL Cool J, Dr. Dre, Arrested Development do not rock and roll make, racial emancipation may be.
So we take matters into our own hands. Here’s calling out to non-Americans and by implication like minded gentry to help build this list.
Send me the rock and roll songs that you feel have done any of the following
1. The greatest influence on culture
2. That you identify yourself the most.
3. That you would wish you had with you when you get marooned in a desert island
Right here on my blog, we would be building the list vote by vote. So write in using the comments section and keep checking on the final list that gets built.
