Joe Elliott - 1992 Interview Quote

"I wrote 'Let's Get Rocked' after watching 'The Simpsons'. I just wanna do what Steven Tyler does; he's 15 years older than me and he still writes lyrics about shagging and stuff, and why not?."

"You hold in your hands the first single from our new album, ADRENALIZE. A simple little ditty, Let's Get Rocked just about sums up our feelings about life."

"Also, check out Only After Dark, a Mick Ronson song we've always liked. Mick's been ill and this track is our acknowledgement to his importance...It sure feels good to be back. Play it LOUD!."
