Detroit Rock Chick Uses The “N” Word

Patti Smith – “Rock n’ Roll Nigger”

My favorite song from the album (2 Disc set) “Land.” My mom gave it to me as a gift for the holidays when I was about 16. The first time I heard a female singer “talk sing.” I was used to pop music on the radio at that time. With over sung/over glorified choruses. Yet, here was a woman screaming and talking out powerful messages throughout. I was immediately blown away by the amount of FEMALE POWERHOUSE ROCK going through my speakers. This track was brutal. To the point. And RAW. I got one great taste of Patti Smith and her insanely beautiful, poetic lines. And I had to hear more. She is the superwoman of rock n roll poetry.
