Status Quo was een populaire rockband waarvan de muziek gekarakteriseerd wordt door een sterke boogie- en boogiewoogiestijl. De klassieke bezetting bestond enerzijds uit oprichters Alan Lancaster en Francis Rossi en anderzijds uit Rick Parfitt en John Coghlan. Status Quo heeft meer dan 20 hits in de Top 40 gehad maar hebben nooit een nummer 1 hit gescoord. Wel bereikte 2 singles de 2e plaats als hoogste notering (Down down en Roll over lay down).

De band begon in 1962. De eerste grote hits waren psychedelische nummers zoals "Pictures of Matchstick Men", "Black Veils of Melancholy" en "Ice in the Sun",

De band ontwikkelde in de jaren zeventig een eigen kenmerkende stijl van weinig akkoorden, makkelijke teksten en een stevig ritme. De band had wereldwijd grote hits met onder andere "Mean Girl", "Down Down", "Whatever You Want", "Rockin' All Over the World", "The Wanderer" en "In the Army Now", maar de groep brak nooit door in de VS.

Midden jaren tachtig nam het succes af en verlieten sommige bandleden de groep. Rick Parfitt overleed op 22 december 2016 op 68-jarige leeftijd. Toch bracht de groep in 2019 een nieuw album uit "Backbone".





Songtekst

Once upon a time not so very long ago
There wasn't such a thing as a rock'n'roll show
You had to sit at home and listen to the radio
Then came a man with a rockin' guitar
Found himself a beat and he played it near and far
Everybody danced and sang and let the good times roll

Again again again again again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again?
Again again again again again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again?

He travelled round the world in a rock-n-roll band
He stood there like a giant with a guitar in his hand
Everybody danced and sang and let the good times roll
Nobody cared about the clothes he would wear
Nobody cared about the colour of his hair
Everybody came to see and let the good times roll

Again again again again again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again?
Again again again again again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again?

Now we've got the rhythm in us now we've got the rock
Time didn't matter never living by the clock
Everybody came to hear him playing his rock-n-roll
Then came a line when the music didn't rhyme
He couldn't find the rhyme 'cos he couldn't find the time
But still the people came to listen to the good times roll

Again again again again again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again?
Again again again again again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again?
Again again again again again again again again
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again?
Why don't you do it, why don't you do it again?
