The Lyrics

In the year 2025
If music's still alive
If movies can survive
We may find

In the year 2035
Ain't gonna be no metal groups to see live
Every hip-hop hit song is played
On the radio ten times a day

In the year 2045
Ain't gonna be no film on which to decide
You won't find a film to see
No classic horror DVD's

In the year 2055
Every Oscar winning film makes us cry
The movies halfway worth an hour or two
On DVD for $1.92

In the year 2065
Ain't gonna be no decent rock bands alive
You'll take your son and your daughter too
To N Sync live from Katmandu, whoa-oh

In the year 2110
There will be nothing but hip-hop by then
Maybe fans of decent music will say
"Rock "n' roll has met its Judgment Day"

In the year 2210
Moviegoers shake their mighty heads
They'll surely say, "I'm pissed how film has grown,"
Boycott the theaters and make their own, whoa-oh

In the year 2995
I'm kinda wonderin' if music's gonna be alive
Rejecting every upcoming metal band
And the won't be but nothing' whoa-oh

Now it's been 1000 years
Rockers cried a billion tears
For music we once knew
Rock and roll is through
But each and every night
They wish upon starlight
So very far away
For return of yesterday

In the year 2025
If music's still alive
If movies can survive
We may find
(fade out)

In the year 2006, you wrote this song and we got our kicks. Somehow, rock manages to stay alive. For now, I'll just give you a five. Not to mention... I absolutely DESPISE the original version of this song, so anytime someone makes a good parody of it, I'm all for it.

Well done with this one. Only know the original from one of my college roommates singing it one time.
