Considering what is happening right now, I needed to deliver some words of hope through a special medium: Music. Classic rock is my favorite musical genre. There are a lot of things about this genre that make it stand out from other musical alternatives. One of the things I like the most about rock music is the wisdom that it can transmit. Some rock songs carry a lot of wisdom in their lyrics. Below is a compilation of wise, inspiring rock lyrics dug from different sources. Let these words of wisdom serve as a moral guide and a source of inspiration in the middle of this crisis.
