------------------------

Rocket USA is a song written by Alan Vage and Martin Rev and it was originally released in their album Suicide.
Suicide is the influential first studio album by American No Wave band Suicide, released in 1977.
It is often cited as one of the first synth pop albums, although it has a harsher, more industrial leaning than many well-known albums of the genre.
In 2003, the album was ranked number 446 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

"Rocket USA" has been covered by The Fleshtones, Loop and The Cars on their reunion album, Move Like This.

Lyrics

Rocket rocket USA
Shooting on down the Highway
TV star riding aruund
Riding around in a killer's car
It's 1987
Whole country's doing a fix
It's doomsday doomsday.

Riding around, riding high
Riding around with my babe
Speeding on down the skyway
Speeding on down the skyway.

Rocket rocket USA
Shooting on down on my way
TV star riding around
Ridign around in a killer's car
It's doomsday doomsday
It's doomsday doomsday.

Speeding on down the skyway
100 miles per hour
Gonna crash
Gonna die.

Rocket rocket USA
Shooting on down the skyway
Speeding on down the skyway
Rocket rocket USA.

Riding around, riding high
Riding around with my babe
Speeding on down the skyway
Speeding on down the skyway.

Speeding on down the skyway
100 miles per hour
Gonna crash
Gonna die.
