Former American Idol contestant Daughtry has made a name for himself in the music industry long past his days on Idol. With hit singles like “September” and “Over You,” Daughtry has become a household name when it comes to rock ‘n’ roll.
It is fitting that the next single off of Daughtry’s upcoming album would be a love letter to the genre that has made him a musical success. “Long Live Rock & Roll,” is a rock ‘n’ roll anthem that pays tribute to the genre, including references to The Beatles, Rolling Stones and many more and even paying tribute to artists that passed away and left the industry too soon. Lyrically, the song pays tribute to the classic rock ‘n’ roll era but the instruments do as well. The guitar riffs are large and up front. The song feels like a classic rock ‘n’ roll anthem.
The song not only highlights Daughtry’s vocal range, but his passion for his craft. This single will likely be another chart topping success for Daughtry.
Fans will have to wait a little longer for an official music video for either “Waiting for Superman” or “Long Live Rock & Roll,” but fans can listen to the audio on both tracks below. Both videos have been gaining momentum on the radio and on YouTube.
