McFly are back with a brand new album called Power To Play, paying homage to the over-the-top joy of 80s rock and hair metal. And they have shared a new track from it, perfectly embodying the spirit and silliness of the genre brilliantly.

That song is “God of Rock & Roll”, a gloriously catchy piece of guitar-based worship. Spiky riffs, self-referential lyrics and a chorus that feels like fireworks going off around you, it’s an absolute beauty of a rock song. Get in the car, turn it up loud and drive faster than you ever have before.

The band had this to say about it:

“Once we had landed on the fact that we were going to do 80s rock, there was just something in it that had such a McFlyness within it. High concept, guitars front and centre, colourful. It’s all the things we have always loved about music and what we do with this band. It’s a party rock song at its core, but its seed was that if there was a god of rock and roll, we would undoubtedly be worshipping him.

A lot of that came from going to shows ourselves. We all went to see Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer last year and seeing so many people come to the same place to enjoy rock music was incredible. Rock music celebrates life and having fun, and it feels like we all got deprived of that for such a long time.”
