Elvis Presley: Jailhouse Rock (1957) – Music Video

Ok, so Elvis Presley is sort of considered the bad boy of his generation… I don’t know why, because honestly, when it comes to musicians and actors… There are so many people who have done so much worse then gyrate their hips and make girls scream!

I mean Fatty Arbuckle (Brewster’s Millions) was arrested for murdering some girl just after a party… Hell most musicians at that time were usually high frequently… Brian Wilson was friends with a cult leader known for orchestrating a handful of very brutal high profile murders, Roman Polanski (Rosemary’s Baby) fled the country after raping a minor… There are so many more…

I know that was probably pretty disgusting to hear… But I wanted to say it… Because comparitively speaking… His career as of 1957… He might have been the posterboy for goodness and all that.

But despite the incredibly tame nature of this music… I suspect that this music video for the song: Jailhouse Rock (1957) was one of those songs that got those old farts back then all riled up! So I hope you enjoy it!

And if you like that, then you are going to love the lyrics for the song: Jailhouse Rock (1957), by Elvis Presley!

The warden threw a party in the county jail
The prison band was there and they began to wail
The band was jumpin’ and the joint began to swing
You should’ve heard them knocked-out jailbirds sing
Let’s rock everybody, let’s rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin’ to the Jailhouse Rock
Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone
Little Joe was blowin’ on the slide trombone
The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang
The whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang
Let’s rock everybody, let’s rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin’ to the Jailhouse Rock
Number forty-seven said to number three
“You’re the cutest jailbird I ever did see
I sure would be delighted with your company
Come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me”
Let’s rock
