The Rock and Roll Neighborhood Playlist

Each person has their own favorite music genre. Popular music genres include blues, jazz, rock, country, hip hop, pop, R&B, rock and Electronic. The younger generations may really favor the Electronic Dance Music and hip hop amongst others, but older generations are perhaps loyal fans to rock and roll and disco music. Rock music itself usually refers to a band complete with a guitar, bass, and drum setup, and it was really popular during the 1970s and the 1980s.


Despite all these differences, when you are inviting the whole neighborhood to come for a small party that you are throwing, you can always turn into this cool rock and roll playlist to keep all of your guests happy regardless of what their ages may be:

Start With Popular Tunes From Eagles and The Beatles

Being a huge fan to them might be a different thing, but everyone sure is familiar with the songs from Eagles and The Beatles which are both in the easy listening rock category. You can play The Beatles’ most popular songs of all time which includes “I Want to Hold Your Hand”, “Hey Jude”, “Yellow Submarine” as well as “Twist and Shout” but do not forget to put in some Eagles’ touch with “Hotel California” or “Take It Easy”. They both are party pleasers and people will not mind listening to them even though the age difference will affect your guest’s personal preferences.

Mix It Up With More Modern Rock and Roll Bands

Even though rock is not exactly the most trendy category of music in the world for the past several years, but there are actually still some rock and roll bands that will be able to entertain the younger generations while still embracing the older ones. One of the most popular rock bands would be Paramore, and they have a wide range of award-winning and really pumping up songs such as “That’s What You Get”, “The Only Exception”, “Crushcrushcrush” as well as “Decode” which was the movie Twilight’s original soundtrack in 2008. If you have even younger generations who have not yet reached their puberty in 2008, there is also a band called the Vampire Weekend which is worth checking out.

Amp Up With Hard Rock Noises

After getting the light touches of modern and somewhat softer rock songs, it comes the time to liven up the mood once more with hard rock songs coming from Metallica, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, and Guns N’ Roses. These bands are still sought after as their songs still outlive and are familiar to even the younger generations by virtue of their parents. Although Metallica’s songs like “Enter Sandman” and “Master of Puppets” were not released later in the 1980s, classic AC/DC and Led Zeppelin songs like “Highway to Hell” and “Stairway To Heaven” will bring up the energy to sing and scream along, until most of your guests just run out of energy.

End With Romantic Slow Rock Songs

Just in time when everyone has already used up their energy for eating, chatting, joking, singing along, or whatever it is that they may do: put your best ballad rock songs playlist on the speaker. Beautiful tunes like Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing” and Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight” or “Tears In Heaven” will nicely tone down the mood, and everyone can just sit back and relax while drinking beers and watching the stars to light up the sky. As time gets late, it may also be the perfect time to light up a bonfire and roast some marshmallows while the little children go back home to sleep.
