I've seen Kurt Cobain, who was quoting Neil Young, credited with originating this line, but it was Neil Young:

My my, hey hey
Rock and roll is here to stay
It's better to burn out
Than to fade away
My my, hey hey.

It's out of the blue and into the black
They give you this but you pay for that
And once you're gone you can never come back
When you're out of the blue
And into the black

The king is gone but he's not forgotten
This is the story of a Johnny Rotten
It's better to burn out than it is to rust
The king is gone but he's not forgotten

Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There's more to the picture
Than meets the eye.

Lyrics to "My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)"

I had that line in big letters on my notebook in high school. I am soooo old.

Me, too. In fact, I was offended when I started hearing people link this line with Kurt Cobain, since I grew up on it.

Have we done favorite song lyrics here? We quote our favorites and see if anyone can guess the song and artist? I've seen song lyrics in the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, so I guess they count as quotes.
