Músicas de Rock

O rock já foi dado como morto várias vezes, mas, sempre há uma grande banda surgindo todos os dias. Porém, nada como relembrar clássicos do estilo que essa lista básica de 20 músicas de rock para você aumentar o som no último volume.

Músicas de Rock

O rock tem várias vertentes, mas, uma linha mestra que une a todos que é a energia ou rebeldia (ou ambos) que embalam canções formidáveis.

Rock and Roll, do Led Zeppelin – Músicas de Rock

Música síntese do rock’n roll em diversos aspectos, a segunda canção do 4º álbum do Zeppelin de Chumbo é uma composição direta e empolgante em todos os sentidos. A banda realmente estava no auge, o que se pode perceber desde a voz rasgada de Plant, até os frenéticos acordes de Page. Pra completar, no final da música, uma pequena demonstração do mestre das baquetas John Bonham, mostrando porque era excelente naquilo que fazia.

Letra da música Rock’n Roll

It’s been a long time since I rock and rolled
It’s been a long time since I did the Stroll
Oh let me get it back let me get it back
Let me get it back baby where I come from
It’s been a long time been a long time
Been a long lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely time
Yes it has
It’s been a long time since the book of love
I can’t count the tears of a life with no love
Carry me back carry me back
Carry me back, baby, where I come from
It’s been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
Seems so long since we walked in the moonlight
Making vows that just can’t work right
Open your arms, opens your arms
Open your arms, baby, let my love come running in
It’s been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time

Compositores: Jimmy Page / Robert Plant / John Paul Jones / John Bonham

(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, do Rolling Stones – Músicas de Rock

Os Stones sempre foram considerados um dos pilares centrais do rock, e mesmo que eles tenham feito discos maravilhosos em toda a sua carreira, uma música, especificamente, é considerada a essência da banda, pela simplicidade e pelo carisma: “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”. O riff de Richards, assim, tornou-se um dos mais emblemáticos do gênero, mostrando que gênios, até quando fazem “menos”, conseguem mais.

Letra de (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction

I can’t get no satisfaction, I can’t get no satisfaction
‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can’t get no, I can’t get no
When I’m drivin’ in my car, and the man come on the radio
He’s tellin’ me more and more about some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination
I can’t get no, oh, no, no, no, hey, hey, hey
That’s what I say
I can’t get no satisfaction, I can’t get no satisfaction
‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can’t get no, I can’t get no
When I’m watchin’ my TV and a man comes on and tells me
How white my shirts can be
But, he can’t be a man ’cause he doesn’t smoke
The same cigarettes as me
I can’t get no, oh, no, no, no, hey, hey, hey
That’s what I say
I can’t get no satisfaction, I can’t get no girl reaction
‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can’t get no, I can’t get no
When I’m ridin’ ’round the world
And I’m doin’ this and I’m signin’ that
And I’m tryin’ to make some girl, who tells me
Baby, better come back maybe next week
Can’t you see I’m on a losing streak?
I can’t get no, oh, no, no, no, hey, hey, hey
That’s what I say, I can’t get no, I can’t get no
I can’t get no satisfaction, no satisfaction
No satisfaction, no satisfaction
I can’t get no

Compositores: Keith Richards / Mick Jagger

Smoke on the Water, do Deep Purple – Músicas de Rock

Mais um exemplo de riff emblemático para o estilo do rock. O Deep Purple já havia se consolidado como uma das grandes bandas do estilo com os discos “In Rock” e “Fireball”. Faltava uma megahit, o que só veio no álbum “Machine Head”. Com “Smoke on the Water”, o Purple alçou voos mais altos, sem contar a inusitada (e quase trágica) história por trás da composição, que se originou devido a um incêndio real em um cassino onde a banda iria se apresentar.

Letra de Smoke on the Water

We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn’t have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
Smoke on the water
They burned down the gambling house
It died with an awful sound
Funky Claude was running in and out
Pulling kids out the ground
When it all was over
We had to find another place
But Swiss time was running out
It seemed that we would lose the race
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
Smoke on the water
We ended up at the Grand hotel
It was empty cold and bare
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
Making our music there
With a few red lights and a few old beds
We make a place to sweat
No matter what we get out of this
I know we’ll never forget
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

Compositores: Ritchie Blackmore / Ian Gillan / Roger D Glover / Jon Lord / Ian Paice

A seguir, vídeo com a banda Deep Purple, onde eles mostram muito bem a habilidade de cada um dos integrantes, do vocalista Ian Gillian, ao guitarrista Ritchie Blackmore.

War Pigs, do Black Sabbath – Músicas de Rock

Depois de mudar pra sempre a história do rock pesado com o seu primeiro e fantástico disco, o Black Sabbath só precisava mesmo continuar na mesma levada. Veio, então, o disco “Paranoid”, que já começava com “War Pigs”, um baita cartão de visitas, com uma ótima e provocativa letra. Um dos pontos altos da carreira do “Madman” Ozzy Ousborne e cia.

Letra de War Pigs

Gen’rals gathered in their masses,
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction,
Sorcerer of death’s construction
In the fields the bodies burning,
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind,
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh Lord yeah
Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role for the poor, yeah
Time will tell on their power minds,
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess,
Wait ’till their judgement day comes, yeah
Now in darkness world stops turning,
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more War Pigs have the power,
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pigs crawling,
Begging mercies for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings
Oh Lord yeah

Compositores: Michael Butler / Ozzy Osbourne / Tony Iommi / William Ward

Enter Sandman, do Metallica – Músicas de Rock

Após perderem o baixista Cliff Burton em um trágico acidente, o Metallica continuar na estrada, e o resultado foi “.. And Justice For All”. Três anos depois, contudo, conseguiram atingir um topo que talvez jamais imaginariam com o “Black Album”, que, de cara, já trazia o petardo “Enter Sandman”. Mais hard rock do que thrash, a banda desagradou alguns fãs mais xiitas, mas, conquistou o merecido estrelato.

Letra de Enter Sandman

Say your prayers little one
Don’t forget, my son
To include everyone
Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
‘Till the sandman he comes
Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight
Exit, light
Enter, night
Take my hand
We’re off to never-never land
Somethings wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren’t of Snow White
Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragon’s fire
And of things that will bite
Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight
Exit, light
Enter, night
Take my hand
We’re off to never-never land
Now I lay me down to sleep
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
If I die before I wake
I pray the lord my soul to take
I pray the lord my soul to take
Hush little baby, don’t say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It’s just the beasts under your bed
In your closet, in your head
Exit, light
Enter, night
Grain of sand
Exit, light
Enter, night
Take my hand
We’re off to never-never land
Yeah!
We’re off to never-never land
Take my hand
We’re off to never-never land
Take my hand

Compositores: James Alan Hetfield / Kirk L. Hammett / Lars Ulric

Clipe de Enter Sandman

Clipe que ficou bastante famoso na época, e se tornou sucesso de público e crítica. Por sinal, o clipe mais elaborado que a banda fez até então.

2 Minutes to Midnight, do Iron Maiden – Músicas de Rock

Depois da entrada de Bruce Dickinson, o Maiden tinha achado o vocalista perfeito para o tipo de som que queria. Depois de álbuns irrepreensíveis, veio o impecável “Powerslave”, e, com ele, um dos maiores hits da banda, “2 Minutes to Midnght”, canção obrigatória em qualquer show do grupo. Com uma pesada temática, que flertava sobre a guerra, a música é uma das mais importantes de toda a história do heavy metal.

Letra de 2 Minutes to Midnight

Kill for gain or shoot to maim
But we don’t need a reason
The Golden Goose is on the loose
And never out of season
Blackened pride still burns inside
This shell of bloody treason
Here’s my gun for a barrel of fun
For the love of living death
The killer’s breed or the demon’s seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain
Don’t you pray for my soul anymore
Two minutes to midnight
The hands that threaten doom
Two minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb
The blind men shout “let the creatures out
We’ll show the unbelievers”
The napalm screams of human flames
Of a prime time Belsen feast, yeah!
As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy
We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies
The killer’s breed or the demon’s seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain
Don’t you pray for my soul anymore
Two minutes to midnight
The hands that threaten doom
Two minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb
The body bags and little rags of children torn in two
And the jellied brains of those who remain to put the finger right on you
As the madmen play on words and make us all dance to their song
To the tune of starving millions to make a better kind of gun
The killer’s breed or the demon’s seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain
don’t you pray for my soul anymore
Two minutes to midnight
The hands that threaten doom
Two minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb
Midnight
Midnight
Midnight
It’s all night
Midnight
Midnight
Midnight
It’s all night
Midnight, all night

Compositores: Adrian Frederick Smith / Bruce Dickinson

Clipe de 2 Minutes to Midnight

Um clipe épico para uma música épica. Bem produzido para a época, o vídeo transmitia muito bem a mensagem da composição, e elevava a popularidade da banda mais ainda.

Another Brick in the Wall, do Pink Floyd – Músicas de Rock

Depois de ter passados tantos anos de excelentes serviços prestados ao rock progressivo, o Floyd lançou o seu canto do cisne, “The Wall”, e uma de sua músicas mais definitivas, “Another Brick in the Wall”. De estrutura um pouco mais simples do que outras composições da banda, essa canção, rapidamente, tornou-se um hino do estilo, em especial, após o filme dirigido por Alan Parker.

Letra de Another Brick in the Wall

We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall
We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave those kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave those kids alone
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall
“Wrong, do it again!”
“If you don’t eat yer meat, you can’t have any pudding
How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat yer meat?”
“You! Yes, you behind the bike sheds, stand still laddy!”

Compositores: Roger Waters

Clipe de Another Brick in the Wall

Vídeo promocional do filme “The Wall”, de Alan Parker, que também dirigiu o clipe, um dos mais emblemáticos da história do rock.

London Calling, do The Clash – Músicas de Rock

O Clash sempre foi uma banda diferenciada no meio punk. Com músicos mais ecléticos, a banda sempre se arriscou mais em outros estilos, o que fica evidente em sua obra-prima, “London Calling”, cuja faixa-título é uma das melhores sínteses do que a banda era capaz. Pra quem acha que o punk só se resume a três acordes, precisa escutar esse dico com atenção.

Letra de London Calling

London calling to the faraway towns
Now war is declared and battle come down
London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls
London calling, now don’t look to us
Phony Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain’t got no swing
Except for the ring of that truncheon thing
The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Meltdown expected, the wheat is growin’ thin
Engines stop running, but I have no fear
‘Cause London is drowning, and I, I live by the river
London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, you can go it alone
London calling to the zombies of death
Quit holding out and draw another breath
London calling and I don’t want to shout
But when we were talking I saw you nodding out
London calling, see we ain’t got no high
Except for that one with the yellowy eye
The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Engines stop running, the wheat is growin’ thin
A nuclear era, but I have no fear
‘Cause London is drowning, and I, I live by the river
The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Engines stop running, the wheat is growin’ thin
A nuclear era, but I have no fear
‘Cause London is drowning, and I, I live by the river
Now get this
London calling, yes, I was there, too
And you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
London calling at the top of the dial
And after all this, won’t you give me a smile?
I never felt so much alike alike alike

Compositores: Joe Strummer / Mick Jones / Paul Simonon / Topper Headon

Clipe de London Calling

Vídeo que iniciava uma nova fase do The Clash, mais eclética, mais diversificada, e que, ainda assim, possui toda a rebeldia do punk.

Welcome to the Jungle, do Guns N’ Roses – Músicas de Rock

Nos anos 80, boa parte do rock estava mais suave, mais “romântica”, digamos assim. Aí, veio o Guns, e simplesmente chutou o balde com o poderoso “Appetite for Destruction”, que, logo nos acordes iniciais trazia “Welcome to the Jungle”, o que mostrava que o grupo realmente não estava pra brincadeiras, trazendo um som mais cru e mais violento do que os seus pares da época. Um verdadeiro estrondo.

Letra de Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to the jungle we’ve got fun and games
We got everything you want honey, we know the names
We are the people that can find whatever you may need
If you got the money, honey we got your disease
Jungle, welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your shun n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n knees, knees
Uh, I, I want to watch you bleed
Welcome to the jungle we take it day by day
If you want it you’re gonna bleed but it’s the price to pay
And you’re a very sexy girl, very hard to please
You can taste the bright lights but you won’t get there for free
In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine
Ooh, I want to hear you scream
Welcome to the jungle, it gets worse here every day
You learn to live like an animal in the jungle where we play
If you hunger for what you see you’ll take it eventually
You can have everything you want but you better not take it from me
In the jungle, welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your knnn knne knees, knees
I’m gonna watch you bleed
And when you’re high you never ever want to come down
So down, so down, so down, yeah
You know where you are?
You’re down in the jungle baby
you’re gonna die
In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your shun n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n knees, knees
In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Feel my, my, my serpentine
In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to your shun n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n knees, knees
In the jungle welcome to the jungle
Watch it bring you to you
Its gonna bring you down, ha!

Compositores: Slash / Izzy Stradlin / Duff Mc Kagan / Steven Adler / W. Axl Rose

Vídeo de Welcome to the Jungle

Primeiro grande vídeo do Guns, que, apesar de um pouco datado visualmente, compõe tudo o que a banda um dia representou.

Alive, do Pearl Jam – Músicas de Rock

O grunge veio, no início dos anos 90, como um autêntico frescor para o mundo do rock, que estava em um certo marasmo na época, e uma das bandas que mais personificou esse movimento foi o Peral Jam, em especial, com o seu primeiro disco, “Ten”, que, entre outras pérolas, trazia, “Even Flow”, “Jeremy” e “Alive”, esta composta quase em forma de diário por Eddie Vedder.

Letra de Alive

Son, she said
Have I got a little story for you
What you thought was your daddy
Was nothin’ but a
While you were sittin’
Home alone at age thirteen
Your real daddy was dyin’
Sorry you didn’t see him
But I’m glad we talked
Oh I, oh, I’m still alive
Hey, hey, I, oh, I’m still alive
Hey I, oh, I’m still alive, yeah oh
While she walks slowly
Across a young man’s room
She said I’m ready, for you
I can’t remember anything
To this very day
‘Cept the look, the look
Oh, you know where
Now I can’t see, I just stare
I, I, I’m still alive
Yeah, yeah I, oh, I’m still alive
Yeah, yeah I, oh, I’m still alive
Yeah, yeah I, oh, I’m still alive, yeah
Is something wrong?
She said
Of course there is
You’re still alive
She said
Oh do I deserve to be?
Is that the question?
And if so, if so
Who answers?
Who answers?
I, I, I’m still alive
Yeah, yeah I, oh, I’m still alive
Yeah, yeah I, oh, I’m still alive
Yeah, yeah I, oh, I’m still alive
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh oh, yeah oh, ooh oh, yeah, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Compositores: Stone C. Gossard / Eddie Jerome Vedder

Clipe de Alive

Um dos vários clipes que serviram para divulgar o álbum de estreia do Pearl Jam, e que capta o grupo ao vivo, na essência.

Bullet With Butterfly Wings, do Smashing Pumpkins – Músicas de Rock

O Pumpkins já havia mostrado grande capacidade com os seus dois primeiros álbuns, mas, foi com o multiplatinado “Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness” que a banda atingiu o auge em termos de criatividade. E, dentre as melhores músicas do disco está “Bullet With Butterfly Wings”, justamente, uma das mais simples do álbum; um rock que mescla muito bem a parte melódica com explosões sonoras.

Letra de Bullet with Butterfly Wings

The world is a vampire, sent to drain
Secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
And what do I get, for my pain?
Betrayed desires, and a piece of the game
Even though I know, I suppose I’ll show
All my cool and cold, like old job
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Now I’m naked, nothing but an animal
But can you fake it, for just one more show?
And what do you want?
I want to change
And what have you got, when you feel the same?
Even though I know, I suppose I’ll show
All my cool and cold, like old job
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Tell me I’m the only one
Tell me there’s no other one
Jesus was the only son, yeah.
Tell me I’m the chosen one
Jesus was the only son for you
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
And someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage am I still just a rat in a-
Despite all my rage am I still just a rat in a-
Despite all my rage am I still just a rat in a cage
Tell me I’m the only one
Tell me there’s no other one
Jesus was the only son for you
And I still believe that I cannot be saved
And I still believe that I cannot be saved
And I still believe that I cannot be saved
And I still believe that I cannot be saved

Compositores: William Patrick Corgan

Clipe de Bullet with Butterfly Wings

O Pumpkins, enfim, tinha atingido o auge, e com vídeos espetaculares como este, foram, merecidamente, uma grande febre em 1995.

We Will Rock You, do Queen – Músicas de Rock

O Queen sempre foi conhecido por músicas grandiosas, quase épicas. Eis, então, que no disco “The Work” eles surgem que simples (mas, muito poderosa) “We Will Rock You”. Com a guitarra aparecendo apenas no “segundo tempo”, é quase um grito de guerra, pra ser cantado em um estádio lotado (por sinal, a especialidade do carismático e saudoso Freddy Mercury).

Letra de We Will Rock You

Alright

Compositores: Brian May

Clipe de We Will Rock You

Com um vídeo mais despojado, o Queen mostrou esse clássico para o mundo da música, um dos hinos de rock mais lembrados pelos fãs do estilo até hoje.

God Save the Queen, do Sex Pistols – Músicas de Rock

Depois dos Pistols, nunca mais o rock foi o mesmo. Não importa que a rebeldia do grupo fosse fabricada, ou que os seus integrantes nunca tenham sido exímios músicos. A verdade é que toda a estética punk foi consolidada com o grupo, e teve nessa música, um dos seus maiores expoentes. Afinal, não é todo dia que se debocha da Rainha da Inglaterra desse jeito.

Letra de God Save the Queen

God save the queen
The fascist regime
They made you a moron
A potential H bomb
God save the queen
She’s not a human being
and There’s no future
And England’s dreaming
Don’t be told what you want
Don’t be told what you need
There’s no future
No future
No future for you
God save the queen
We mean it man
We love our queen
God saves
God save the queen
‘Cause tourists are money
And our figurehead
Is not what she seems
Oh God save history
God save your mad parade
Oh Lord God have mercy
All crimes are paid
Oh when there’s no future
How can there be sin
We’re the flowers
In the dustbin
We’re the poison
In your human machine
We’re the future
Your future
God save the queen
We mean it man
We love our queen
God saves
God save the queen
We mean it man
There’s no future
In England’s dreaming God save the queen
No future
No future
No future for you
No future
No future
No future for me
No future
No future
No future for you

Compositores: Glen Matlock / John Lydon / Paul Thomas Cook / Stephen Philip Jones

Clipe de God Save the Queen

O Sex Pistols chegou como uma hecatombe no mundo do rock, e o clipe de “Gos Save the Queen” é a síntese perfeita disso.

Do You Remeber Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio?, do Ramones – Músicas de Rock

Depois de cravarem, pra sempre, o seu nome no rol da fama do rock com os seus primeiros álbuns, os Ramones resolveram fazer um disco mais “elaborado” com o insano produtor Phil Spector. O resultado é “End of the Century”, que possui uma das músicas que mais caracteriza o que são os Ramones: “Do You Remeber Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio?”.

c0869a76b99694b08fe3836f401ca5ce-210x300-6807258-4516083

Letra de Do You Remember Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio?

Rock’n, rock’n’roll radio Let’s go
Rock’n, rock’n’roll radio Let’s go
Rock’n, rock’n’roll radio Let’s go
Rock’n, rock’n’roll radio Let’s go
Do you remember Hullabaloo,
Upbeat, Shinding and Ed Sullivan too?
Do you remember rock’n’roll radio?
Do you remember rock’n’roll radio?
Do you remember Murray the K,
Alan Freed, and high energy?
It’s the end, the end of the 70’s
It’s the end, the end of the century
Do you remember lying in bed
With your covers pulled up over your head?
Radio playin’ so no one can see
We need change, we need it fast
Before rock’s just part of the past
‘Cause lately it all sounds the same to me
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh
Will you remember Jerry Lee,
John Lennon, T. Rex and OI Moulty?
It’s the end, the end of the 70’s
It’s the end, the end of the century

Os vídeos das músicas dos Ramones nunca foram necessariamente “elaborados”, mas, passavam o principal: energia

Light my Fire, do The Doors – Músicas de Rock

Toda a poética de Jim Morrison foi explicitada logo no primeiro dico do Doors, com destaque especial para “Light My Fire”, a música que mais deixam claros todos os elementos que fizeram o sucesso da banda. Com um baita instrumental, e uma letra “viajada” de Morrison, a canção atingiu o sucesso bem rápido.

Letra de Light My Fire

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn’t get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire
The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah
The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah
You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn’t get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire

Compositores: Jim Morrison

Clipe de Light My Fire

O grande barato do The Doors era ver a banda ao vivo, improvisando, como mostra bem esse clipe aqui, numa das bombásticas apresentações do grupo.

Would?, do Alice in Chains – Músicas de Rock

Da mesma safra de bandas grunge, o Alice in Chains se caracterizou sempre por ter um som mais pesado, em todos os sentidos. O ápice foi o disco “Dirt”, que encerrava com um clássico: “Would?”, canção presente na trilha sonora de “Singles”, filme que retratava muito bem toda aquela geração de Seattle.

Letra de Would?

Know me broken by my master
Teach thee on child of love hereafter
Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way
Drifting body it’s sole desertion
Flying not yet quite the notion
Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way
Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way
Am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home?
Have I gone?
And left you here alone?
Am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home?
Have I gone?
And left you here alone?
If I would, could you?

Compositores: Jerry Cantrell

Clipe de Would?

Compondo diversas cenas do filme “Singles”, o clipe de “Would?” é um dos mais empolgantes da cena grunge.

Crazy Train, do Ozzy Ousborne – Músicas de Rock

Depois de sair do Black Sabbath, Ozzy encontrou refúgio em sua carreira-solo, e um dos que mais contribuíram para ajudar o “Madman” em suas novas andanças foi o prodígio guitarrista Randy Rhoads, infelizmente, falecido alguns anos depois de ter entrada para a banda de Ozzy em um acidente aéreo. E, um dos mais poderosos testamentos musicais deixados por ele foi, sem dúvida, “Crazy Train”.

Letra de Crazy Train

Crazy, but that’s how it goes
Millions of people living as foes
Maybe it’s not too late
To learn how to love
And forget how to hate
Mental wounds not healing
Life’s a bitter shame
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’ve listened to preachers
I’ve listened to fools
I’ve watched all the dropouts
Who make their own rules
One person conditioned
To rule and control
The media sells it
And you live the role
Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I know that things are going wrong for me
You gotta listen to my words, yeah!
Heirs of a cold war
That’s what we’ve become
Inheriting troubles
I’m mentally numb
Crazy, I just can not bear
I’m living with something
That just isn’t fair
Mental wounds not healing
Who and what’s to blame
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

Compositores: Bob Daisley / Ozzy Osbourne / Randy Rhoads

Clipe de Crazy Train

O grande forte dessa formação da banda de Ozzy eram as apresentações ao vivo, com bem mostra esse clipe que complia alguns desses momentos.

Smells Like Teen Spirit, do Nirvana – Músicas de Rock

Pra muitos, essa é a última banda autêntica de rock que existiu. De fato, o grupo de Kurt Cobain conseguiu feitos fantásticos em seu pouco tempo de existência. Um deles foi colocar o rock alternativo no mainstream. O outro foi lançar músicas atemporais como esta, que ainda figuram entre as melhores coisas que o rock já fez um dia.

Letra de Smells Like Teen Spirit

Load up on guns, bring your friends
It’s fun to lose and to pretend
She’s over-bored and self-assured
Oh no, I know a dirty word
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello
With the lights out, it’s less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido
Yeah, hey
I’m worse at what I do best
And for this gift I feel blessed
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello
With the lights out, it’s less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido
Yeah, hey
And I forget just why I taste
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard, it’s hard to find
Oh well, whatever, never mind
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello
With the lights out, it’s less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido
A denial, a denial, a denial, a denial, a denial
A denial, a denial, a denial, a denial

Clipe de Smells Like Teen Spirit

Vídeo mais importante do Nrivana, já do primeiro single de “Nevermind”, um disco que praticamente “salvou” o rock nos anos 90.

Like a Rolling Stone, do Bob Dylan – Músicas de Rock

Quando eletrificou o seu som, Dylan foi chamado de herege pelos seus fãs mais conservadores. Ao mesmo tempo deu o passo inicial para o rock ficar mais madura, mais adulto, mais reflexivo. O resultado foi “Like a Rolling Stone”, primeira canção a ser lançada nas rádios norte-americanas com mais de 6 minutos de duração, e que originou o nome de ninguém menos que os Rolling Stones.

Letra de Like a Rolling Stone

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
Threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you?
People call say ‘beware doll, you’re bound to fall’
You thought they were all kidding you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hanging out
Now you don’t talk so loud
Now you don’t seem so proud
About having to be scrounging your next meal
How does it feel, how does it feel?
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone
Ahh you’ve gone to the finest schools, alright Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
Nobody’s ever taught you how to live out on the street
And now you’re gonna have to get used to it
You say you never compromise
With the mystery tramp, but now you realize
He’s not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
And say do you want to make a deal?
How does it feel, how does it feel?
To be on your own, with no direction home
A complete unknown, like a rolling stone
Ah you never turned around to see the frowns
On the jugglers and the clowns when they all did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain’t no good
You shouldn’t let other people get your kicks for you
You used to ride on a chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain’t it hard when you discovered that
He really wasn’t where it’s at
After he took from you everything he could steal
How does it feel, how does it feel?
To have on your own, with no direction home
Like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone
Ahh princess on a steeple and all the pretty people
They’re all drinking, thinking that they’ve got it made
Exchanging all precious gifts
But you better take your diamond ring, you better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him he calls you, you can’t refuse
When you ain’t got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You’re invisible now, you’ve got no secrets to conceal
How does it feel, ah how does it feel?
To be on your own, with no direction home
Like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone

Compositores: Bob Dylan

Clipe de Like a Rolling Stone

Dylan sempre foi uma grande figura no palco, alguém que, mesmo com muito pouco, conseguia extrair muito de suas belas composições.

Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black), do Neil Young – Músicas de Rock

Assim como Dylan, Neil Young é um dos grandes trovadores do rock de todos os tempos. Sua energia em cima do palco é tamanha, que até os dias de hoje, os seus shows são bastante cultuados. Uma das músicas que mais capta esse espírito inquieto dele é “Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)”.

Letra de Hey, Hey, My, My (Into the Black)

Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)
Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There’s more to the picture
Than meets the eye
Hey hey, my my
Out of the blue and into the black
You pay for this, and they give you that
Once you’re gone, you can’t come back
When you’re out of the blue
And into the black
The king is gone but he’s not forgotten
Is this the tale of Johnny Rotten?
It’s better to burn out than to fade away
The king is gone but he’s not forgotten
Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There’s more to the picture
Than meets the eye
Hey hey, my my

Rock and roll can never die

Mesmo com altos e baixos, o rock continua sendo um dos estilos musicais mais importantes e influentes da história da música. E, mesmo que, às vezes, possa parecer que ele já morreu, o bom e velho rock’n roll sempre volta das cinzas.
