Produced by Priese Board (Katy Perry's version)
Rock Mafia (Selena Gomez & the Scene's version)

"Rock God" is a song written by Katy Perry, Victoria Horn and Priese Board, who also produced the song. It was originally intended for either of Perry's unreleased albums (A) Katy Perry and Fingerprints. Selena Gomez & the Scene then recorded the song for their sophomore album, A Year Without Rain. The band's edition of the song was produced by Rock Mafia. Lyrically, the song is about choosing rock music over religion which may connect to Perry when she started to compose pop music rather than the gospel music as she did for Katy Hudson.

Lyrics

Katy Perry's version

Preacher man walked into the bar and he said he said
"Hey girl can't you walk a mile straight?"
Father I'm torn and I'm selling my soul to the
Rhythm, the beat and the bass cause I can't
Confess my rock and roll ways
'Cause I'm so possessed with the music
The music he plays

I can't stop my feet from dancin' to the sound of his drum
Oh no, I fell in love with my rock god
I can't keep my hips from swayin' to his sweet melody
You see, I fell in love my rock rock god

Preacher man took my hand and looked in my eyes
He said "Hey girl can't you leave?" and I cried
"Father things aren't always so black and white..
Don't cast the first stone 'cause I'm not alone"
And it's not like I'm hurtin anyone..
But I can't confess my rock .. my rock and roll ways

I can't stop my feet from dancin' to the sound of his drum
Oh no, I fell in love with a rock god
I can't keep my hips from swayin' to his sweet melody
You see, I fell in love my rock rock god

I can't stop my feet from dancin' to the sound of his drum
Oh no, I fell in love with my rock god
I can't keep my hips from swayin' to his sweet melody
You see, I fell in love my rock rock god

No I wouldn't change a thing even if I could
I chose a path and I'm not looking back
And I'm sorry if I left the angels crying
Over me...

I can't stop my feet from dancin' to the sound of his drum
Oh no, I fell in love with my rock god
I can't keep my hips from swayin' to his sweet melody
You see, I fell in love my rock rock god
