"I don't care about the movie itself but I consider it as a real
cult movie showing an era when Rock & Roll was just starting and kids
were kind of innocent. The "raw" musical interpretations are so
well done by the various artists that, while watching the movie,
you're completely transported to those wonderful good old early
authentic Rock & Roll days. Elvis had just come out with his first
big hit when this was filmed and the "inventor" of the expression
"Rock & Roll" Mr. Alan Freed is an important part of this cult movie,
probably the best one to describe those unforgettable days we lived
through at the age Tuesday Weld made her film debut.

"Rock! Rock! Rock!, on its own, isn't a good movie at all. Poor acting and poor plot.
BUT (I repeat, BUT) it is filled with some of the best 1950s rock and roll that you will ever find put together (and on film no less!)- Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers, Chuck Berry, Johnny Burnette Trio, The Moonglows, Lavern Baker, etc.
When watching this movie, you will find that you will have to skip through the movie just to watch the rock and roll acts. But boy are they worth it!
Get this film for the great performances and music. There's nothing like seeing some 1950s rock and rollers in their prime!"
