Australia ha dado muchos buenos grupos, así que había que buscar uno un poco diferente. Hoy traemos a una banda formada por dos hermanos gemelos, Benji y Joel Madden. Son una de las bandas más populares de esta década allá por el otro lado del mundo, aunque parte de su buen nombre se ha dilapidado con discos mediocres y una gira con Justin Timberlake.

Originalmente una banda de pop-punk como Blink 182, se han pasado a géneros tan dispares que uno duda si decir que hacen rock. Lo importante es que esta canción es buena y nos invita a hacer un viaje en el tiempo. Hace 34 años en la radio sonaba Highway to Hell, no había ordenadores y la guerra de moda era la Guerra Fría, que estaba bastante más caliente de lo que nos han hecho creer. No había crisis, en la radio sonaban los Clash… ¡era una maravilla!

Life was simple,
Roger was working round the clock to make a living,
No computers, none of that, he used his two hands,
Ignored the cold war,
His wife would keep him warm.
On the weekends,
He’d load the car up with the kids and they’d go fishing,
No need to work an extra job, there’s no recession,
Damn right he smiled a lot,
They lay awake at night,
So in love.

It was a good, good year, (oh uh oh)
The kids were all right,
“Highway to Hell” beat up “Stayin’ Alive”, (oh uh oh)
The Clash was on the radio,
And mum and dad were still in love,
In 1979,
It was a good, good year.

In the morning,
Robin always woke up early in the kitchen,
She’d make the coffee, pack his lunch and then she’d kiss him,
And he would hold her tight,
When they were newlyweds.
He’d say maybe,
And she would laugh, they knew they’d have another baby,
She’d slave away all day until dinner was ready,
And they would dance so slow to “Just the Way You Are”.

It was a good, good year, (oh uh oh)
The kids were all right,
“Highway to Hell” beat up “Stayin’ Alive”, (oh uh oh)
The Clash was on the radio,
And mum and dad were still in love,
In 1979,
It was a good, good year.

All the decades and the years have passed,
Not every family is built to last,
No time can take away these memories,
Remember when you said to me,
That we’d be all right.

Oh uh oh
The kids were all right,
“Highway to Hell” beat up “Stayin’ Alive”, (oh uh oh)
The Clash was on the radio,
And mum and dad were still in love,
In 1979,
It was a good, good year.

Oh uh oh
Disco couldn’t survive,
With the Dream Police and Rock ‘N Roll High,
Blondie powered ‘Heart of Glass’,
And Mum & Dad bought their first house,
In 1979,
It was a good, good year.
