Songfacts®:

  • Written by Don Sollash, "Rock You Sinners" was recorded by Art Baxter and His Rock 'N' Roll Sinners, and was the title song of a 1958 film. Viewed through the prism of the Internet age it sounds more like a parody of Rock 'n' Roll than the real thing, but on April 9, 1957 it found its way onto the BBC's banned list. >>
