Mr. Rock & Roll

"Mr. Rock & Roll" is a single by Scottish singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald, released on 16 July 2007. It was her first full single after the limited online release of "Poison Prince",[1] and was released on CD and 7" vinyl. It charted at #12 on the UK Singles Chart. The song is the first track on Macdonald’s debut album This Is the Life, and is her most successful single in the UK so far. This song was also featured on the BBC Olympics 2008 programming, where it was played as the show looked over the day's events.
MacDonald attracted controversy during a gig at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall in 2009. Performing in front of an audience of mostly families, which included many children, MacDonald sang the words "and they'll meet one mutha fuckin' day far away." MacDonald later apologised for the gaffe. The song's main hook is instantly recognisable thanks to its copy and pasting throughout the song.
