Released: March 1958

What else could it be, really? That riff, that piano, and that chorus – all packaged into a timeless track about rock ‘n’ roll itself. Covered hundreds of times, from B.B. King to Back To The Future, it was included on the Voyager Golden Record, a selection of discs sent into space to demonstrate the cultural capacity of life on earth. Makes you proud to be human.
