Veteran boogie rockers Foghat are back with a brand-new single titled "The Word of Rock n' Roll."  The song actually is an updated version of the band's 2010 instrumental track "495 Boogie" that features lyrics written by a fan named Phil Dessinger in conjunction with a songwriting contest launched last year.

A special lyrics video for the tune, which celebrates the crazy life of a rock group on the road, can be viewed now at Foghat's official YouTube channel.  The clip includes a variety of candid, fan-submitted photos of the band members clowning around and hanging out with some of their faithful followers.  It also features footage of Foghat performing on stage.

"The Word of Rock n' Roll" was released Tuesday and is available for purchase now as a digital download at Amazon.com and iTunes .
