This first version was released on vinyl in 1979 on Vertigo records as a B-side to "You Don't Own Me". Billboard Hot 100 number-one single for seven weeks. In it, Jett and the Blackhearts travel to a small, dingy bar and proceed to excite the drunken crowd by performing the song and yelling out its chorus.
In 1981, Jett re-recorded the song, this time with her band, the Blackhearts. A snippet of Jett's 1981 hit "Bad Reputation" can be heard at the beginning of the video.
The alliterative phrase rocking and rolling was originally used by mariners at least as early as the 17th century, to describe the combined rocking (fore and aft) and rolling (side to side) motion of a ship on the ocean.
As the term referred to movement forwards, backwards and from side to side, it acquired sexual connotations from early on; the sea shanty "Johnny Bowker" (or "Boker"), probably from the early nineteenth century, contains the lines "Oh do, my Johnny Bowker/ Come rock and roll me over".
The song was originally recorded and released by The Arrows in 1975 on Rak Records, with lead vocals, guitar, music & lyrics written by Alan Merrill and produced by Mickie Most.
