"I Love Rock 'n' Roll" is a song by the Scottish alternative rock group The Jesus and Mary Chain and the second single from the group's last album Munki.
Michaels spoke with The Associated Press about relationships and lessons learned from reality television as “Rock of Love: The Complete First Season” is released to DVD this month. I think finding true love, I never went in with that intent. Michaels: I found someone who is really nice and cool and gets rock ’n’ roll. AP: Do you feel that doing a reality show hurts your credibility as a rocker? If you are going to use the same nice charm and jokes, try not to take three women on a date at the same time so that each of them does not know you’re using it. Michaels: No one explains to you in the world of reality TV that when you are done, you spend five or six months a part. You get done — there are months where you can’t be traveling and doing stuff (together) because they don’t want anyone to take a picture of you.
AP: Is this just a show for entertainment, or did you really go into this thinking that you were going to find true love? Michaels: I am a rock star/musician who has had, with a lot hard work, a continuous and long career with or without reality TV. AP: Isn’t it every man’s dream to date three women at once? If I get out at LAX, they have the TMZ people there.
In her exit interview on the VH1 website, Nikki explained that all the contestants are required to get tested for STDs as part of the screening process.
She was inspired to write a rap song while they were waiting and someone handed her the information sheets to write on.
Michaels: I said this from day one: I went into this to have fun and maybe find someone to like. When I went in and they came after me when I was going to do “Rock of Love,” they gave me this novelty concept. Michaels: The date is the dream because it looks good for your image. If someone gets a picture of you on vacation together with a cell phone, it’s over.
True love is not going to be found instantly on a TV show. However, saying lines while the other ones can hear it and then turning to another and saying the same line is not a smart move. AP: Did you have a conversation with Jess about breaking up?
In the United States, the album was retitled Pure Pop for Now People, with Columbia Records replacing "Shake and Pop" with "They Called It Rock" (a Rockpile version of the same song, which had been included as a single-sided bonus 45 in the Radar album), swapping the live version of "Heart of the City" for the studio version that had been released as a single on Stiff Records (the other side of the single, "So It Goes", was included in both versions of the album), and adding "Rollers Show" from a pre-Stiff United Artists maxi-single.
The songs are also in a different order than the UK version.
Now that we’re adults, we own the hell out of who we are.
