Often used as a closing song for the Ziggy and Aladdin Sane tours, Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide is not only the thematic death of Ziggy Stardust on the album, but the real life end to the character as portrayed by Bowie. The song, in the context of the album depicts the final fall of Ziggy Stardust – the washed up superstar as the crushing weight of stardom and the rock n roll lifestyle (highlighted in Suffragette City the preceding song) takes its toll. However on its own the song tells another story.
Rock 'n' Roll Suicide" is a song by David Bowie, originally released as the closing track on the album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars on 16 June 1972. It detailed Ziggy's final collapse as an old, washed-up rock star and, as such, was also the closing number of the Ziggy Stardust live show. In April 1974 RCA issued it as a single.

Lyrics to "Rock 'N' Roll Suicide" song by David Bowie: Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth You pull on your finger, then another finger, then yo. .And the clock waits so patiently on your song You walk past a cafe but you don't eat when you've lived too long Oh, no, no, no, you're a rock 'n' roll suicide. Chev brakes are snarling as you stumble across the road. But the day breaks instead so you hurry home Don't let the sun blast your shadow Don't let the milk float ride your mind You're so natural - religiously unkind.
Part of its impact, of course, comes from Bowie's own decision to close his 1972-1973 concerts with the song, crying "give me your hands" to an audience which could not ask for anything more catch the final minutes of the Ziggy Stardust - The Motion Picture movie, as "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide" crystallizes the retirement speech which Ziggy has just delivered, and. it is impossible not to get caught up in the emotion of the moment. Somewhat inconceivably, the stately, rolling (but decidedly not rocking) "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide" also made it out as a British single in 1974, limping to number 22 - proof that even magic has a time and a place in which it is most effective. Cover versions have, therefore, been mercifully few and far between, although former Spandau Ballet frontman Tony Hadley did chance his arm on one in 1993.
