So I've been hearing this song for years, and I never knew until just today that "this city" which song refers to, the one that was built (by Jefferson Starship) upon rock and roll is actually a real place! It's San Francisco! I'm not sure if that means Rock and Roll is actually distributed throughout the bedrock of the city or if the majority of the buildings have rock and roll in their foundations like pipe insulation.

Next you're gonna tell me Funky Town and Paradise City are real! Where the women are attractive and grass is it's regular color!

San Francisco is built on smuggling claim jumping and railroad scams.

Rock and roll sounds a lot like sand, like the areas in SF built on landfill.  Fell down in earthquakes.

Why not build on stone like the real musics Elvis stole that sand from.

I'm... not sure what you're getting at with some of this.

But in regards to rock and roll. Yes, I'm aware that black people invented the genre, but I'm not so sure it's fair to say Elvis "stole" it because he reached higher levels of fortune and fame because of his skin tone. I'd be willing to discuss the topic at further length on /townhall/ if you wanted.

I've been to San Francisco and can confirm that there are plenty of rocks.
I didn't see too many rolls, but I didn't stop by any bakeries to be fair.

hey now

they built san francisco off of rock AND roll, so they did add to the original formula :PP

>>1064860
i imagine metal would look very industrial and gothic in architecture

and Jazz would have a very artsy and brass look ^^

There might be hope on finding Swentibold yet. Though it should be near the embassy in Rome.

Or confirmed the Netherlands?
