Led Zeppelin were great, though recently they're on the nose
Post-punk is in, for people in the know
Prog rock's important, though many prefer new wave
Fleetwood Mac's probably the most influential band today

To which classic genre should my new rock band aspire?
Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1979

I got some classic rock, released six months ago
Some psychedelic folk, some white guys playing disco
But I'm keeping up to date - the 80s are ready to roll
I'm ditching Wolfmother and getting into Interpol

I'm DJ-ing at Pony, it's gonna be outta sight
Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1979

We're writing pop songs, learning to guitar-solo
Like the people who were rich and famous 30 years ago
We're releasing vinyl records, like our heroes did back then
The only difference is, nobody is buying them

Let's imagine a time when music wasn't shared online
Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1979
It's a long way to the top when you gotta keep your nine-to-five
I wish that I was living in 1979


from Bohemian Suburb Rhapsody, released March 1, 2010
