    I remember Transfusion!

    Bending the rules, some real country, close to rockabilly, and an eighteen wheeler. One of the original truck songs, and the definition of the American truck driver, 1963."]Six Days on the Road Dave Dudley - YouTube

    The Rolling Stones covered this song with Taj Mahal and really butchered it.

    Jan and Dean!
    One version says six tail lights, a modification of the stock four lights. The other says french tail lights, which is when you mold the lights into the body, used to be done with lead."]Jan And Dean : Deadman's Curve ( 1964 ) - YouTube

    Awesome thread ! Lot's of very influential songs posted by you guys :sunny:
    I've never met anyone that had even heard of Rocket 88
    Awhile back I came across that song and the idea that it was considered the "first" rock and roll song. Finding Ike Turner played with that band intrigued me and I read more. It's fascinating... Ike gave Jimi one of his first breaks.

    So recently I saw a comment at Wiki that there are 3 songs considered contenders to be the first. I like that as the comment below says, with something evolutionary like music no one can point to just one genre-changing song.

    Here's those other two mentions:"]Goree Carter Rock Awhile - YouTube"]First Rock'n roll song?! Jimmy Preston - Rock the Joint (DOO WOP CORNER SOUND: SHOW 89) - YouTube

    Both from 1949. Rocket 88 is 1951.

    How about something from 1938? Doesn't sound like those previous 3 songs were all that original."]Rock'n'Roll Song from 1938! 'Trucking Little Woman' BIG BILL BROONZY - YouTube

    then lastly, fwiw, i found this surfing around Wiki"]My Daddy Rocks Me Trixie Smith - YouTube

    Put the pedal to the metal....Brenda Lee's Coming On Strong."]Golden Earring - Radar love + Lyrics - YouTube

    ..and here is the great rockabilly star Brenda Lee singing Coming on Strong, since it's mentioned in the song.
    She became a national star in 1955 at the age of ten."]Coming On Strong - Brenda Lee - YouTube
