This rock and roll song was written in 1952 by Max C. Freedman and James E. Myers (Myers writing under the pseudonym "Jimmy De Knight"). The best-known and most successful rendition was recorded by Bill Haley & His Comets in 1954 for American Decca. It was a No1 single in both the US & UK charts. It also re-entered the UK Singles Chart in both the 1960s and 1970s.
Haley's recording became an anthem for rebellious 1950s youth and is widely considered to be the song that, more than any other, brought rock and roll into mainstream culture around the world. The song is ranked No. 158 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
This is a one-off single rhythm complete with intro's/endings/fills & variations written in the style of the song for newer Ketron instruments. (Please note this is not a song file - often referred to as a midi file - that refers to and plays only one song. Subject to the chords you play on your instrument this style can be used for many numbers of which Rock Around The Clock is just one).
