“I Never Wanna Die” is a Rock n’ Roll Immortalist Lyric

can you name the tune? here’s 3 hints - 

1967…

 #129 on the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list…

Steppenwolf…?

that’s right, its the last phrase in the chorus of “Born to be Wild”  

“I Never Wanna Die” is music to our ears again 

in the chorus of the Foo Fighters song - “Walk” -   

Grammy Award Winner, 2011

here’s some more immortalist anthems:

I could continue indefinitely with this—but… what’s my point?

this: 

the quest for Immortality is frequently expressed in popular music 

ending aging and death is a pervasive cultural desire

Immortalists need to start bands that play the tunes listed above….

We’ve been flyin’ so high
I never wanna die
Born to be wild

Steppenwolf

It’s the song that named the sub-genre of rock music known as heavy metal.

Yes, I remember when it was a hot new hit, way way back when I was in high school.
