If I'm interpreting the question correctly, these are just a few songs I can think of off the top of my head by TP artists that I think rawk.

The Mekons - "Memphis Egypt"
Jesus and Mary Chain - "Head On"
Primitives - "Crash"
Close Lobsters - "Mother of God"
My Bloody Valentine - "What You Want"
Ultravox - "Rockwork"
Nick Lowe - "Heart of the City"
Patti Smith - "Pumpin' (My Heart)"

Heck, even if I'm not interpreting the question correctly, I stand by my opinion.

I think all of you have foolishly missed the intent of the original request, you foolish fools. I’d go with:

“Rockin into the night” 38 Special
“Rockin with the rhythm”- the Judds
“Hot Rockin” Judas Priest

TP just hasn’t gotten around to reviewing these YET… I’m sure they’re somewhere in the cue?
September 16, 2021 07:47PM
Well then, Bip, here are just a few more of my 20FR selections that might fit the bill:

"Do You Rock and Roll?" – The Kings
"The Golden Age of Rock & Roll" – Mott the Hoople
"All for the Love of Rock & Roll" [live] – Tuff Darts
"Rock & Roll High School" – The Ramones
"Rock and Roll Heart" – Lou Reed
"Dirty Ass Rock & Roll" – John Cale
"Rock and Roll" – The Velvet Underground
"Rock and Roll Will Stand" – The Blasters
"Flying Saucer Rock 'n' Roll" – Robert Gordon and Link Wray
"Rock and Roll Girl" – Paul Collins' Beat
"I Knew the Bride When She Used to Rock & Roll" – Nick Lowe
"Rock & Roll Suicide" – David Bowie
"Anything That's Rock & Roll" – Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
"Rock & Roll This, Rock & Roll That" – The Mumps
"It Isn't Rock & Roll" – The Pretty Things
"What's That Got to Do with Rock & Roll?" – Sylvain Sylvain
"Rock & Roll Made a Man Out of Me" – The Dictators
"Rock and Roll Party" – Iggy Pop

“Rock and roll” is probably my fave Velvet Underground track. That thing just chugs along and transcends.
September 17, 2021 12:37PM
Thanks for the info. I’ve heard some of them, but most I have not, so I shall be listening to them here and there when I have time.
September 17, 2021 09:17PM
I'm surprised that The Motors "Dancing the night away" hasn't been mentioned yet. That track is ace.
September 18, 2021 11:16AM
I've got at least three setlists lined up already now, thanks to all you guys!
