Rock This Bitch

Album: Ben Folds Live (2002)
  • Never performed the same way twice, Ben Folds would improvise this song at concerts. It all started at a a show at the Vic Theatre in Chicago on October 3, 2001, when a fan in the crowd yelled out for him to "Rock This Bitch!" Ben, taking him literally, made up a song about rocking this bitch off the top of his head to please the fan. Ever since it is not uncommon to hear it yelled out at a concert and to be happily satisfied by one of many versions of this fan favorite.
  • On the album Naked Baby Photos, Ben Folds Five during a random jam session recorded the song "Weather Channel Music" and included a very random and highly entertaining version of "Rock this Bitch." >>
