It's amazing how many guitarists use Chuck Berry riffs to this day.

That's exactly what I feel every time I hear this opening riff. The warm fuzzy feeling of seeing Back to the Future on a rainy sunday afternoon. Priceless.

Indeed, the date in the RP database is incorrect. The “Chuck Berry is on top” album wasn't even released until 1959.

Love this song. Love it in the movie "American Graffiti"—the scene where they flatten the tires and cover the car in shaving cream. Yeah, all from a different era.
 
I always thought this song was from Back to the Future by Marty McFly with Marvin Berry and the Starlighters. But seriously, I do remember playing it to death at our basement rec room parties back in the day.

To rate this a ten, would be short by ninety. That's why I don't rate.

Rock and roll at it's best.  And, BTW, "race music" WAS early rock and roll and was airplayed in the early to mid-50s.

Who is this guy? 

Wow. He sure doesn't understand RnR like today's bands.

We need more FOO Fighters and Smashing Pumpkins. Now they knows RnR!

What is that strange sound....it's...it's...it's a guitar playing RnR!

Sadly...it's a dying art form. But we still got the thud and drone players (e..g, Foo Fighters) and we can watch them kiss the asses of these guitar legends on TV specials, thinking that by association, they become great players.

Arguably the inventor of rock'n'roll. Elvis absorbed black blues and gospel. Berry absorbed Texas swing and hillbilly. Maybe it was the two of them. I'm pretty sure there are a dozen or more musicologists who can draw labyrinthine dotted lines all over the South, involving hundreds of musicians, demonstrating the organic emergence of rock'n'roll. Maybe. I think it was the two of them. They knew.

Yes, follow the Ramones with The King Chuck Berry, A1!!!  I would not be surprised if Johnny B. was then followed by some kick-ass Johnny Lydon and Public Image Ltd (PiL)!   maybe some day...
