Kinetic Energy: Is the energy of movement

Yes I know it's a bad song, but it explains it quite well. Kinetic energy is one that is moving, and potential is one that is staying still/not moving. Given examples of this are a rubber band. When the rubber band is held it's potential, and when it's snapped back it's kinetic.
