Yoko Ono And Sean Lennon Rewrite "The Times They Are a-Changin" To Protest Fracking; Rock And Roll Officially Dead

By James King Mon., Jul. 16 2012 at 3:45 PM

Rock and roll, (roughly) 62, died Friday at 30 Rockefeller Center in Manhattan after a courageous battle with poor taste.

At the time of its death, rock and roll was surrounded by friends, family, and comedian Jimmy Fallon, as Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon -- the former wife and son (respectively) of Beatle John Lennon -- butchered the Bob Dylan classic "The Times They Are A-Changin'" in a poor attempt to protest the controversial natural gas extraction method of "fracking."

The contemporary take on a timeless classic included the younger Lennon repeatedly gurgling "don't frack my mother" -- as Ono (his mother) echoed "don't frack me" -- in an Oedipus-ian atempt at satire. It proved to be too much for the genre, and it was unable to survive the assault initially orchestrated by Ono when she broke up the Beatles in the late 1960s.

Rock and roll got its start in America in the early 1950s after a fusion of jazz, blues and country music gave it its unique sound. The genre boasts legendary acts like Elvis Presley, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones. In recent years, bands like Coldplay, Nickelback, Dashboard Confessional and the Jonas Brothers left rock music in an unrecognizable state of whiny pussy-dom until its untimely demise Friday night.

Rock and roll is survived by Mick Jagger, Ozzie Osborne, Bob Weir and Slash.

Donations can be made in lieu of flowers at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at 1100 Rock and Roll Boulevard Cleveland, OH 44114.

Rock and roll: 1950-2012.

Agreed ... but would you rather listen to a marble mouthed cunt or a strangled, near death cat? I don't think that Dylan sold his soul to Satan as I don't think that Yoko was employed by some nefarious, secret government organization.

What I like most about the article is it takes a clear stand on Yoyo's involvement in the demise of the Beatles and I can't agree more. I'm very sick of the Yoyo apologists, tap dancing around the reasons for the demise of the Beatles ... good for the Village Voice!

I too agree with Hawk and the VV - even more so for some of the comments like this one:

Quote:
Rock and Roll will arise from the dead on September 11, 2012 when Bob Dylan releases his new album "Tempest".
Until then, may Rock and Roll Rest In Peace.
