Pssh, "Satisfaction" is one of the best examples of basic, straight forward rock n' roll. That and Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode."
You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.
It's that tad bit of Crazy that keeps me Sane...
Tight Pants, baby!
"ain't no thang but a chicken wang"
i would take them to Gathering of the Juggalos for several reasons.
1. They would eventually hear some good music.
2. No one would question how weird they look.
3. They would be scared of us and probably not consider trying to conquer our planet.
Is everyone mentioning Chuck Berry doing it because they're hoping if they play something uninteresting enough the aliens will leave us alone?
Also, I think Bowie is the obvious choice. Only because they'll probably relate to him.
If you really want them to relate to something with hopes that they'd right back in their little space ships and hit the road...
