Phonics doesn't even start with an “F”. It's shit like this that makes space aliens fly right by Earth without stopping to give us the cure for cancer.

Songs by Rock Bands About Being in (Or Becoming) A Rock and Roll Band

Even at my advanced age, I like a good show--I went and saw Boston at the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield with my daughter.  What a grand show with a dandy sidekick.  They opened with Rock-N-Roll Band, and it brought to mind other songs, by rock bands, about becoming or being a band. Here's the list I immediately came up with.  These are all great tunes.  Feel free to let me know about all the ones I missed: Overnight Sensation--Raspberries We Built This City--Starship Rock and Roll Band--Boston Grand Funk--We're An American Band Foreigner--Jukebox Hero Moody Blues--I'm Just A Singer In A Rock-N-Roll Band AC/DC--It's A Long Way To The Top Dire Straits--Money For Nothing The Byrds--So You Want To Be A Rock-N-Roll Star Eagles--New Kid In Town Stones--It's Only Rock and Roll Kiss--Rock-N-Roll (All Night) All American Boy--Bill Parsons (and others)
