One helluva rock n’ roll tune!

While surfin’ the net this past weekend, I came across a post on Word Press highlighting a song entitled Revolution by the John Butler Trio who formed in Fremantle, Australia.  My first thought was, “Hum…I wonder if this is a cover of the famous Beatles tune of the same name?” My second thought was, “what a lame name for a band, as it sounds like something from the 1950s.” Well, as they say, don’t judge a band by its name. Not only is the song superb, but the band has an excellent discography including some amazing guitar solos by Mr. Butler himself.

I was hooked within the first few notes of Revolution and its damning lyrics are spot on in today’s dog-eat-dog, it sucks to be you world.  Below is a video from YouTube with the lyrics included, followed by the band’s well-done original video. This is the stuff that real rock n’ roll is all about folks, and why so much great rock music comes out of places like the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia instead of the United States. Here, the music industry seems hung up on shitty ditty pop, crappy rap, and sappy twang – all three genre’s seriously blow chunks.

Enjoy Revolution. Perhaps it will help spark one in the American music scene. One can only hope…
