God Gave Rock 'n' Roll to You

by Viking Guitar Live



This song (originally by Argent and famously covered by KISS in "Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey") has always been a favorite of mine. Regardless of whether "God" for you is a specific deity, a universal force, or just human nature, the song is a message of uplifting positivity, demonstrating that the power of music is shared by everyone. It joins us, builds bridges, and is always there. It's been on my mind a lot recently with everything going on right now. I'm not trying to say that fixing all of the problems in the world is as simple as rocking out, but I think that it's important for us to recognize that we all have common ground, and working to humanize our fellow human beings is a big part of making the world a better place.

With the new Bill & Ted movie, it seemed like an even better time to finally do our own version of this song. All of us in Viking Guitar Live hope you enjoy it.

Remember: it's always a good time to be excellent to each other, and to keep the world metal.
