The year was 1972-


Supersonic Rocket Ship is a single recorded by British rock band The Kinks, written by Ray Davies. It was released on 5 May 1972, in the UK, and in September of that year for its US release. In the song, the singer talks about his "supersonic rocket ship", which contains a kind of paradise or refuge from all the troubles in the world, where "nobody has to be hip", "nobody's gonna travel second class", and "there'll be equality, and no suppression of minorities". It fits in the groove of other Ray Davies songs like 'Apeman', that express a desire to go back to a simpler life or escape from all life's woes to a better world (a desert island, the rocket ship, etc.)
