And this is one I'm pretty sure is rock as well, in Qingtianese! It's the only song in Qingtianese either OldBoring or I know of that doesn't have any swearwords in it, but we also agree the lyrics are pretty dumb. (There's a version without the lyrics in Hanzi in the subtitles as well)

Hmm... Country rock? Is that a thing?
Wow, I didn't think of it as rock, probably because I was distracted by the dumb lyrics.
In China when you say rock probably most people will think about the band "Beyond", but really, to a Western ear, their music sounds probably like just pop music with a little more drums.
Beijing has a big underground rock scene, with musicians who are both Chinese and foreign expats. One day I'd like to go see some concert or performance (I've never been to one). Cause when I search "Beijing rock" on the Internet I only see people with a guitar in hand screaming in Beijing dialect.
