About Rockstar

"Rockstar" is the fifth U. S. single by the Canadian rock band Nickelback from their fifth album, All the Right Reasons (2005). It was initially only released in the United States and Canada, and has since been re-released worldwide. The lyrics feature the pretentious, materialistic desires of a wannabe rockstar, who craves money, cars and women. Spoken-word vocals between each verse are provided by Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. "Rockstar" is one of Nickelback's most popular singles to date, peaking at number two in the United Kingdom and being certified Platinum. It has also sold 4.5 million copies in the United States.

I'm through with standing in line
To clubs we'll never get in
It's like the bottom of the ninth
And I'm never gonna win
This life hasn't turned out
Quite the way I want it to be
 
I want a brand new house
On an episode of Cribs
And a bathroom I can play baseball in
And a king size tub big enough
For ten plus me
 
I'll need a credit card that's got no limit
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
Gonna join the mile high club
At thirty-seven thousand feet
 
I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
Somewhere between Cher and
James Dean is fine for me
 
I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I'd even cut my hair and change my name
 
'Cause we all just want to be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won''t eat
And we'll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger''s
Gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny
With her bleach blond hair
Hey hey I want to be a rockstar
Hey hey I want to be a rockstar
 
I want to be great like Elvis without the tassels
Hire eight body guards that love to beat up assholes
Sign a couple autographs
So I can eat my meals for free
 
I think I'm gonna dress my ass
With the latest fashion
Get a front door key to the Playboy mansion
Gonna date a centerfold that loves to
Blow my money for me
 
I'm gonna trade this life
For fortune and fame
I'd even cut my hair
And change my name
 
'Cause we all just
Want to be big rock stars
And live in hilltop houses
Driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and
The drugs come cheap
We'll all stay skinny
'cause we just won't eat
And we'll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger's
Gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny
With her bleach blond hair
And we'll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary and
Today's who's who
They'll get you anything
With that evil smile
Everybody's got a
Drug dealer on speed dial
Hey hey I want to be a rockstar
Hey hey I want to be a rockstar
 
I'm gonna sing those songs
That offend the censors
Gonna pop my pills
From a Pez dispenser
When they ask why I drink all day
I'll say because I can
 
I'll get washed-up singers writing all my songs
Lip sync em every night so I don't get 'em wrong
Then listen to the fans tell me how damn good I am
 
I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I'd even cut my hair and change my name
 
'Cause we all just want to be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat
And we'll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger's gonna wind up there
Every playboy bunny with her bleach blond hair
And we'll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary and today's who's who
They'll get you anything with that evil smile
Everybody's got a drug dealer on speed dial
Hey hey I want to be a rockstar
Hey hey I want to be a rockstar
