Recent years have seen a growing number of research about songs and the development of the field of song studies. The goal of the present article is to show all the rich meanings of Polish rock, with its deep and sharp insight. Since the article is limited in scope, it examines a selection of lyrics of Polish rock bands, being the best examples of how the people of rock react to the surrounding reality. Only a few musicians, whose achievements are certainly meaningful, have been selected for interpretation. The article is an attempt to reflect upon the “songwriters and their ballads”.
