Haley released his version on Essex Music in 1952 as Bill Haley And The Saddlemen. It was the B Side of "Icy Heart
," but was obviously a much better song; the same guitar solo would be repeated on the smash hit "Rock Around The Clock
." As claimed in Haley's biography, "Rock The Joint" was "the first national hit to become an anthem for schoolkids."
