Destroy Rock & Roll (4:04)

Cover of Destroy Rock & Roll

From Destroy Rock & Roll and 18 other releases

“Destroy Rock and Roll” was produced by Mylo in his Isle of Skye bedroom. The song only cost 350 pounds to produce, at the cost of a used iMac and free Pro Tools software. The track samples “Invocation Against and Destruction of Rock Music”, a 1984 speech by the religious group Church Universal and Triumphant, Inc.

Recorded on December 15, 1984; this speech denounces many major 80s music stars, as well as a few TV shows and films. The music video for “Destroy Rock & Roll” involves Mylo spraypainting icons of said 80s musicians into a slideshow, but with a few errors. (Rebbie Jackson is depicted as her brother Michael Jackson, Jimmie Spheeris as a cirrus cloud, and the lead singer of Scandal is represented by Patti Smith instead of Patty Smyth)
