The Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll

For our Theme Thursday on August 26, we chose all of our music from the "Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll" list. James Henke, chief curator for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, put together this list in 2004 with input from a blue-ribbon group of music writers and scholars. It was initially a 500 song list, but it was later updated with another 160 songs.

Below is the list in full (in alphabetical order). Songs that we played on the air during our Theme Thursday have a "(WYEP)" after the song title.
