Yellowcard, "Life of a Salesman"

Most Rockin' Dad Lyric:

Everything is fine dad
Proud that you are mine dad
Cause I know I'm growing up to be a better man
Father I will always be
That same boy that stood by the sea
And watched you tower over me
Now I'm older I wanna be the same as you

2 / 11

Eric Clapton, "My Father's Eyes"

Most Rockin' Dad Lyric:

Where do I find the words to say?
How do I teach him?
What do we play?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That's when I need them,
That's when I need my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.
That's when I need my father's eyes.
My father's eyes.

Bruce Springsteen, "My Father's House"

Most Rockin' Dad Lyric:

My father's house shines hard and bright
It stands like a beacon calling me in the night
Calling and calling, so cold and alone
Shining 'cross this dark highway where our sins lie unatoned

4 / 11

Queen, "Father to Son"

Most Rockin' Dad Lyric:

Joyful the sound, the word goes around
From father to son, to son...
And the voice is so clear, time after time it keeps on
Calling you, calling you on
Don't destroy what you see, your country to be
Just keep building on the ground that's been won
Kings will be crowned, and the word goes around
From father to son, to son

5 / 11

John Mayer, "Daughters"

Most Rockin' Dad Lyric:

Fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too

6 / 11

Angry Samoans, "My Old Man's a Fatso"

Most Rockin' Dad Lyric:

Baby, my old man's a fatso
But you know he owns this house, yeah

7 / 11

Drive-By Truckers, "Outfit"

Most Rockin' Dad Lyric:

You want to grow up to paint houses like me, a trailer in my yard till you're 23
You want to be old after 42 years, keep dropping the hammer and grinding the gears
Well, I used to go out in a Mustang, a 302 Mach One in green.
Me and your Mama made you in the back and I sold it to buy her a ring.
And I learned not to say much of nothing and I figured you already know
But in case you don't or maybe forgot, I'll lay it out real nice and slow

8 / 11

Bob Dylan, "Forever Young"

Most Rockin' Dad Lyric:

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young

9 / 11

Everclear, "Father of Mine"

Most Rockin' Dad Lyric:

Father of mine
Tell me where have you been?
You know I just closed by eyes
My whole world disappeared
Father of mine
Take me back to the day
Yeah, when I was still your golden boy

10 / 11

Paul Simon, "Father and Daughter"

Most Rockin' Dad Lyric:

I'm gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you'll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father
Who loved his daughter more than I love you

11 / 11

Cat Stevens, "Father and Son"

Most Rockin' Dad Lyric:

It's not time to make a change
Just relax, take it easy
You're still young, that's your fault
There's so much you have to know
Find a girl, settle down If you want you can marry
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy

I was once like you are now, and I know that it's not easy
To be calm when you've found something going on
But take your time, think a lot
Why, think of everything you've got
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not
