Program Notes

Get the house rockin' with this arena anthem! Smaller bands will love playing it for pops concerts or even indoor pep rallies!

- Program Note from publisher


Rock and Roll is a song by English glam rock singer Gary Glitter in two parts: Part 1 is a vocal track reflecting on the history of the genre, and Part 2 is a mostly instrumental piece.

In North America, Part 2 became popularly associated with sports, as a number of professional teams adopted the song for use during games, primarily to signify scores and victories, or to otherwise invigorate the crowd. It is often referred to as The Hey Song, as the only intelligible word in Part 2 is the exclamation of "Hey," punctuating the end of several instrumental phrases and repeated three times at the song's chorus.
