Assunto:  Ear-holy catastrophe
 
Mensagem:  It´s a metaphorical and metatextual reading.

It´s talking about Rock-in-Roll, so where the Rock-in-Roll comes from to you? by listening.  And where the listening comes from? by the ear. 
So, ear-holing is a pun, a phrase of effect here mixing ear-having to do with listening and holing, that have to with the "adoration" (read praising, etc) of this kind of music.

So, not to be translated in a literal sense.
