Hey Rock 'n' Roll

Showaddywaddy got together in 1973 in Leicester, England. They specialized in covers of old ('50s) rock 'n' roll songs from the States, generally upbeat, likable tunes they enhanced with their energy, choreography and frequent television appearances.

Hey Rock 'n' Roll, their first single, was released in April 1974. It went to number 2 on the UK charts. Showaddywaddy would hit the UK charts another 22 times with songs including ten Top 10 singles and one number 1. In total they spent 209 weeks on the singles chart, one of the most successful singles groups of all time.
