On November 14th 1958 Eddie Cochran performed "C'mon Everybody" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
Ten days later on November 24th it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #94; and six weeks later on January 5th, 1959 it peaked at #35 {for 1 week} and spent 12 weeks on the Top 100...
Between March 1957 and August 1959 he had seven Top 100 records; his biggest hit was "Summertime Blues", it peaked at #8 {for 1 week} on September 29th, 1958...
His last Top 100 record was "Something Else", on November 1st, 1959 it was at #78 and that was its last day on the chart, 169 days later on April 17th, 1960 he would unfortunately die at the age of 21 in an auto accident in England...
May he R.I.P.

Love this song!:-)Anna - Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom
Love the Led Zep version from Royal Albert Hall. Cochran's original is pretty good too.Chad - Bath, Pa
British hard rock band UFO also recorded "C'mon Everybody".It appears on the 1971 release 'Ufo 1' twice; one track studio and one track live.This album seems like it might be a collection of demo tracks.A few of the psychedelic rock covers are so badly recorded (and performed)that it is hard to listen to them without feeling embarassed for UFO. Who, in my opinion have been rocking hard (and well) for a long time since then!Mike - Victoria, B.c., Canada
The Ramones copped some of the hooks of this song for Suzy Is A Headbanger.Fyodor - Denver, Co
Humble Pie covered this on Smokin'.Alan - Louisville, Ky
I've always figured it was a remake; used to list to the Pistols skatin' around as a kid in the '70s. Used it on my blog to promote saving CBGB's. My biggest punk claim to fame: Interviewed and partied with the Minutemen, 1985.

Great tune. Always wondered why Eddie wasn't as big left of the pond as in England.Brian - Meriden, Ct
Led Zeppelin covered this at The Royal Albert Hall in 1970 on their Led Zeppelin DVD.Swansong200 - Calhoun, Ga
