Prince's official music video for ‘Rock 'N' Roll Is Alive! (And It Lives In Minneapolis)' off of "The Gold Experience"

Listen to your favorite Prince tracks, all in one place:

About the track:

When Lenny Kravitz released his single “Rock and Roll is Dead” in 1995, Prince was quick to respond with his own declaration on the state of the genre: “Rock ‘n’ Roll is Alive! (And It Lives in Minneapolis)” was released as a B-side to the single “Gold” in the fall of 1995, just a few months after Lenny’s version hit the airwaves.

The move was something of an inside joke between the musicians. According to an interview Lenny gave with the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Prince called him to tell him about the single before it was released, and “they both had a good laugh.” At a listening party for The Gold Experience held by Prince at Paisley Park, the liner notes closed with the note, “Thanx Lenny, call me in Minneapolis.”

Follow Prince:

To drive the point of his new single home, Prince turned his hometown pride up to 11 while filming the video for “Rock and Roll is Alive!” Snow is falling, the entire crew is decked out in winter gear, and Prince showcases his love for the Minnesota Vikings by donning a giant, puffy purple and gold parka.

Until now, the stand-alone video for “Rock and Roll is Alive!” has never seen a wide release; it was created at Prince’s Paisley Park compound for promotional purposes in the winter of 1995-1996, and was aired on VH1 on January 27, 1996, as part of the “Love 4 One Another” special.
