Well, after many a discussion with my old band-mate, we decided to set a few rough guide-lines for living the Rock N' Roll mind-set in these days. I'm not considering this any attempt at a religion... It's just a set of ideas I use as inspiration

1.) Thout shalt stick it to the man
2.) Thou shalt rock out regularly
3.) Thou shalt enjoy life to it's fullest
4.) Thou shalt not chav it up to the max
5.) Thou shalt respect thy musical heritage, and learn about your musical past
6.) The metal Lord shall reward those WHO ROCK THE HARDEST!!!!
7.) Thou shalt not sell out
8.) Thou shalt not conform or help the man
9.) Thou shalt practise thy instrument of rock
10.) Thout shalt have no regrets
11.) Thou Shalt turn it up to 11 at ALL times.

(ok, so many of them do re-iterate themselves, but any thoughts & suggestions are most welcome - Even if they are 'shut up, it's lame' etc.)
(and P.S. Yes, I am bored - this is why I'm posting the 11 commandments of Rock in to the Pit)

Thou shalt at some point "Rock out with your **** out"
Thou shalt hold your instrument at one point at least, to make it look like a penis.

Rock 'n' Roll died when people like you refused to let go of the past and admit that it's still a revolutionary movement that will never stop evolving.

Any thoughts?


Yeah, who made you the authority on rocking? Especially since you already stated categorically you aren't JB.

Although I have to say no. 11 is a nice touch. But I think mentioning "Metal Lord" is putting too much emphasis on a particular sub-genre and I also think that the sticking it to the man bit can be overdone.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

You should probably rewrite them so that more than one commandment is about actually making music.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

there should be a "bible of rock" and it should be the same stories and stuff, but just make them about rock.


please notify me if such a thing already exists.
