If you were unlucky enough to have been alive in the USA in 1984, chances are you were exposed at some point to The Heart of Rock & Roll
. It's part of a subgenre of songs about music; a potentially interesting field of meta-narratives were it not for the fact that they were written by the dumbest motherfuckers on the planet.*
It is crass and self-aggrandising and utterly without reflection, and as such fits perfectly within the showbiz end of rock music.
In 1986 it was improved by Culturcide for their album Tacky Souvenirs of Pre-Revolutionary America
. With a disdain for commercial culture matched only by their disregard for copyright law, they simply played the song in the background and sang on top of it. Only instead of some bullshit mythologising glory story, the lyrics now became "the heart of rock & roll is the profit". Much better.
And then in 2003, like a second generation tape dub, %20 did the same thing to the Culturcide version. By then concepts of commerciality had become old hat, so as well as singing over the top it included a commentary on the merits of human cloning because why the hell not. Oh, and instead of actually singing, it's performed by vocal samples taken from the online Merriam Webster talking dictionary, Dictionaraoke represent. It's conceptually sublime nonsense from outer fringes of music and can be found as part of the collection Reinterpreting the Plunder Classics
