Songfacts®:

  • After testifying to how he built this city on sausage rolls in Christmas 2018, Ladbaby again extolls the virtues of pork-stuffed pastry on this ditty. This time, the comedian, whose real name is Mark Hoyle, parodies Joan Jett's "I Love Rock And Roll" by replacing "rock n roll" with "sausage rolls."
  • Hoyle and his wife Roxanne wrote "I Love Sausage Rolls" in around five hours after choosing "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" from a playlist of karaoke songs. He recalled to NME that they sat around in his house for two or three days listening to the top 50 US and UK karaoke songs.

    "We wanted this to be feel-good, a bit of fun and we wanted a song that, from the minute it starts, you can sing along, enjoy it and have a laugh," Hoyle said. "'I Love Rock 'n' Roll' is always in the top 10 of almost every karaoke list, so it was sort of a no-brainer."
  • All profits from the charity single are being donated to the Food Bank charity, The Trussell Trust.
  • "I Love Rock N Roll" was originally recorded by the British group The Arrows in 1975. Their lead singer Alan Merrill told us it "was a knee-jerk response" to the Rolling Stones' "It's Only Rock 'N' Roll."
  • Christmas 2019 found LadBaby on a (sausage) roll when this song became Hoyle's second consecutive UK Christmas #1. The only other acts to claim consecutive Christmas chart-toppers are The Beatles (three between 1963 - 1965) and Spice Girls (three between 1996 – 1998).
