Growing up, when it was time to get in the car and go somewhere, my dad told my brother and I that it was "time to rock 'n roll." It's Friday, I'm getting ready to go home, and my dad's signature phrase just popped into my head, so it's only fitting that I bring you some rockin' tunes for your drive home.
If you're in the mood for some classic rock, give these tracks a listen and thank my dad for using that term, which inspired today's playlist.
1. "Rebel Yell," Billy Idol
2. "Pour Some Sugar On Me," Def Leppard
3. "Frankenstein," Edgar Winter Group
