Saxon - "They Play Rock and Roll" (Bloodstock 2021)

When the bomber flew
It was '79
Make no mistake
It was their time
Living fast and free
The only way to be
The world was on the street
They were the boys to beat

And they played rock and roll
They played rock and roll

They took no sleep
The tour rolled on
To hammersmith
Their battle song
Everything over the top
Giving it all till you drop
Adrenaline, leather and sweat
No one would ever forget

They played rock and roll
They played rock and roll

Dealing the ace
Releasing the power
The 80's were here
This was the hour
Decibels crushing your brain
The closer you get to the pain
Night after night on the road
Falling asleep with the sun

Bass like thunder
Drums of steel
Guitars of fury
With lightning fear
Living fast and free
The only way to be
The word was on the street
They were the boys to beat

And they played rock and roll
They played rock and roll
They played rock and roll
They played rock and roll


Saxon - "They Play Rock and Roll"
Στο φεστιβάλ Bloodstock Open Air, που πραγματοποιήθηκε τον περασμένο Αύγουστο στο Catton Hall & Park της Αγγλίας, εμφανίσθηκαν οι Saxon [στην κεντρική σκηνή ("Ronnie James Dio Stage") μαζί με τους Judas Priest] κι έχουμε στην διάθεσή μας, σε βίντεο, την "ζωντανή" απόδοση του τραγουδιού τους "They Play Rock and Roll", το οποίο πρωτογνωρίσαμε στον δίσκο της Βρετανικής μπάντας "Thunderbolt" που κυκλοφόρησε προ τριετίας.

Ο Biff Byford είχε πει τότε για το τραγούδι: «The song tells the story of Saxon's very first tour in 1979 with Motörhead. I want people to get a flavour of what it was like in the UK in 79/80 for Saxon and Motörhead at the start of the 80s musical revolution.»
