They helped to build the city but the foundation was set by:

Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix Beatles and many more.

Gotta be Back in Black…you build a city on that, you can bring all the wrecking balls you want, and all you’ll do is cut it loose from the noose that’s kept it hangin around.

“Stonehenge,” by Spinal Tap.

Stonehenge! ‘Tis a magic place
Where the moon doth rise with a dragon’s face
Stonehenge! Where the virgins lie
And the prayers of devils fill the midnight sky…

If we’re gonna build a city on rock and roll we gotta start with the foundation. Therefore I propose, Rock Around the Clock by Bill Hailey and the Comments, Peggy Sue by Buddy Holly, Chantilly Lace by The Big Bopper, and Blueberry Hill by Fats Domino. All those other songs are artists are great and have their place, but to build a city one must begin at the beginning.

I wouldn’t put Starship anywhere in my rock-n-roll city, they belong out in the burbs IMHO. Though I would put Jefferson Airplane pretty close to downtown.

The Starship are mere reporters. I’d like to “imagine” a city built by Lennon with Dylan keeping it real.

A city built on rock and roll would be structurally unsound.
