Reseña de álbum

Rock N Roll Will Never Die was the first Wesley Willis album that was funded by a label, but the cleaner sound really makes no difference at all. At their core, every song Wesley Willis sings is the same song, with the same melody, the same chords and the same skeletal lyrics — the only difference is that sometimes he sings about "Kurt Cobain," sometimes about "Pink Floyd," sometimes about "Blackie-O," sometimes about "Liz Phair," sometimes about "Bolt Thrower," of all people.
