Rock and Roll Is Here to Stay

Music by David White

Originally Performed by Danny and the Juniors

"Rock and Roll Is Here To Stay" is a song written by David White and first recorded by his group, Danny & the Juniors. Released in January 1958 by ABC-Paramount Records as the follow-up to the group's number one hit "At the Hop", it reached number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #16 R&B.

The song - with its lyrics of "Rock and roll is here to stay / It will never die" - was originally written in response to attacks on rock and roll music by some conservative radio stations, including KWK in St. Louis, that included the smashing of "undesirable" rock and roll records.[2][3] It has subsequently been recorded by many other artists, including Sha Na Na (1969) (who later performed it in the 1978 movie Grease as "Johnny Casino and the Gamblers") and Showaddywaddy (2002).
