“When buying a used car, punch the buttons on the radio. If all the stations are rock and roll, there’s a good chance the transmission is shot.” – Larry Lujack Since Elvis Presley burst on the scene, the recording industry has been built around the musical whims of teenagers. Because nothing fascinates teens more than themselves, here are our Top 11 Songs About Teenagers. I’m Eighteen by Alice Cooper I’m Eighteen was Alice Cooper’s first success, a No. 21 hit in 1970. “You hear people all the time say, ‘Boy, I’m Eighteen came out when I was 18,'” Cooper told…

“I grew up with six brothers. That’s how I learned to dance — waiting for the bathroom.” — Bob Hope Patience has never been a strong suit of rock fans. So it’s natural that there would be huge hits about waiting: Waiting for a girl, waiting for a boy, waiting for a friend or in Lou Reed’s case, waiting for a drug dealer.

“The hippies wanted peace and love. We wanted Ferraris, blondes and switchblades.” — Alice Cooper The return of spring is a good time to look back at flower power, the hippie movement of the ‘60s that incorporated psychedelic music, Day-Glo posters and mind-bending drugs. During the Summer of Love, shirts, dresses and VW Bugs were covered with flowers. Flower children handed out flowers at anti-war protests while wearing flowers in their hair. Well, the flower children have all wilted but the music of the flower power era endures. So turn on and tune in to our Top 11 Flower…

For all of the classic Christmas celebrations in New York City each year, for many music fans it’s also a sorrowful time as we recount the tragic death of John Lennon on December 8, 1980. That said, this month we’d like to use the space to remember the groundbreaking artist and some of the more memorable New York City landmarks that he touched. St. Regis Hotel – 2 East 55th Street This was the first New York residence for John Lennon and Yoko Ono.  In October 1971, this is also where Lennon recorded the first acoustic guitar demo of his now…

Rockers have long used stuttering as a musical device to express nervousness or frustration. And sometimes the effect just helps the lyrics fit the music. They’re all here in our Top 11 Stuttering Songs. Which of your favorites did we leave out? Let us know in our comments section below. 11. My Generation by the Who In the ‘60s My Generation was the finale of the Who’s concerts, when Pete Townshend smashed his guitar and Keith Moon blew up his drum kit.

When rockers want to convey rage, frustration, pain or ecstasy, nothing works like an ear-splitting scream. Some rockers’ shrieks are so outrageous that they’ve been banned from the radio, parodied on Saturday Night Live, even earned their own Facebook page. Often the howls are the most memorable part of the song. So keep your earplugs handy; here are Rock Cellar Magazine’s Top 11 Rock Screams. With a Little Help From My Friends by Joe Cocker Joe Cocker has made iconic songs his own with inventive arrangements, wild stage performances and his Ray Charles-style gravelly voice. Cocker’s 1968 interpretation of the…

Rock novels are a blast to read for any serious music lover.  Just like you, rock novelists are tremendous music fans, and the novel form allows them to approach their passion from as many different angles as the imagination allows. Here is a list (of course, by no means comprehensive) of 11 of the best recent rock-related reads… 1. Salman Rushdie – The Ground Beneath Her Feet – 1999 Salman Rushdie is one of the world’s greatest writers.  He’s also one of its funniest.  When you bring these two traits to rock music literature, a kind of magic happens. The Ground Beneath…

Yes it’s that time of year again.  The beer.  The hot and greasy wings.  The hot and greasy tailgating.  And, oh yes, that little bit of pigskin insanity called football. Let’s face it guys and girls, there’s nothing better for getting adrenaline pumping (other than perhaps replacement referees) than some “Gridiron Tunes!” And no, we’re not talking those overplayed – albeit very good – sport-anthems by Gary Glitter (Rock and Roll Part II), AC/DC (Hell’s Bells and TNT), Queen (Champions/We Will Rock You), and Ozzy Osbourne (Crazy Train) that precede every kick-off and touchdown.  We’re talking real football songs -…
