Famous Quotes, Lyrics in Rock

All you need is love, love. Love is all you need. - The Beatles, All You Need Is Love

And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make. - The Beatles, The End

If we weren't all crazy we would go insane. - Jimmy Buffett, Changes In Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes

Artist: Tool

Song Title: Parabola

We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment,

We are choosing to be here right now. Hold on, stay inside

This holy reality, this holy experience.

Choosing to be here in

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in

This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal

All this pain is an illusion.

Artist: Tool

Song Title: Aniema

Some say the end is near.

Some say we'll see armageddon soon.

I certainly hope we will.

I sure could use a vacation from this


Three ring circus sideshow of


Artist: Opeth

Song Title: Bleak


Heart still beating for the cause


Soul still feeding on the loss


Limbs are aching from the rush


You are fading from my sight

Break of morning, coldness lingers on

Shroud me into nightmares of the sun


I am moving closer to your side


You are luring me into the night


Who is crying for you here


I am dying fast inside your tears

Rock is so much fun. That's what it's all about -- filling up the chest cavities and empty kneecaps and elbows.

-- Jim Hendrix

Blues is easy to play, but hard to feel.

-- Jimi Hendrix, quoted in: Charles Shaar Murray, Crosstown Traffic (1989)

Music is a safe type of high. It's more the way it was supposed to be. That's where highness came, I guess, from anyway. It's nothing but rhythm and motion.

-- Jimi Hendrix

I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

-- Jimi Hendrix

Artist: Jimi Hendrix

Song Title: And the wind cries Mary

And the wind whispers Mary.

A broom is drearily sweeping

Up the broken pieces of yesterday's life.

Somewhere a Queen is weeping,

Somewhere a King has no wife.

And the wind screams Mary.

Oh oh yeah

Will the wind ever remember

The names it has blown in the past

With this crutch, its old age and its wisdom

It whispers, "No, this will be the last."

And the wind cries Mary.

Of course, I do occasionally arouse primeval instincts, but I mean, most men can do that. They can't do it to so many. I just happen to be able to do it to several thousand people. It's fun to do that.

-- Mick Jagger (Lead Vocals: Rolling Stones)

I like our music to feel three-dimensional. It's about trying to invoke emotions in people, I suppose. You feel larger than life in some sort of way. Let's face it none of us in Pink Floyd are technically brilliant musicians, with great chops who can change rhythms, fifteen or sixteen bars here, there and everywhere. And we're not terribly good at complicated chord structures. A lot of it is just very simple stuff dressed up. We stopped trying to make overtly 'spacey' music and trip people out in that way in the 60's. But that image hangs on and we can't seem to get shot of it.

-- Dave Gilmour, in: Musician (Dec. 1982) (Lead Guitarist, Vocals for Pink Floyd)

"We never thought of ourselves as a 'heavy metal band' we've always regarded ourselves as a rock band. The big difference we've always thought we had a lot more feel for rock, we always went out for songs, not riffs or heavy, heavy sounds. But every now and again it does come on like a sledge hammer."

-- Angus Young, (guitarist with AC/DC)

“The worst crime is faking it” -- Kurt Cobain, Lead Vocals Guitarists for Nirvana

“I really haven't had that exciting of a life. There are a lot of things I wish I would have done, instead of just sitting around and complaining about having a boring life. So I pretty much like to make it up. I'd rather tell a story about somebody else.” -- Kurt Cobain, Lead Vocals Guitarists for Nirvana

“I'd rather be hated for hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.” -- Kurt Cobain, Lead Vocals Guitarists for Nirvana

Artist: Nirvana

Song Title: Come as you are

Come as you are, as you were,

As I want you to be

As a friend, as a friend, as an old enemy

Take your time, hurry up

The choice is yours, don't be late

Take a rest as a friend as an old memoria

Come dowsed in mud, soaked in bleach

As I want you to be

As a trend, as a friend, as an old memoria

And I swear that I don't have a gun

No I don't have a gun

My vocation is more in composition really than anything else -- building up harmonies using the guitar, orchestrating the guitar like an army, a guitar army.

-- Jimmy Page, lead guitarist, Led Zeppelin

I always thought the good thing about the guitar was that they didn't teach it in school.

-- Jimmy Page, lead guitarist, Led Zeppelin

Artist: Metallica

Song Title: Master of Puppets

Master of puppets I'm pulling your strings

Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams

Blinded by me, you can't see a thing

Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream

Master x2

Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream

Master x2

Artist: the Doors

Song Title: the end

He took a face from the ancient gallery

And he walked on down the hall

He went into the room where his sister lived, and...then he

Paid a visit to his brother, and then he

He walked on down the hall, and

And he came to a door...and he looked inside

Father, yes son, I want to kill you

Mother...I want to...fuck you
