This list makes mpre sense than the one Britney Spears is on but its the first one Ive seen combining 45's & LPs. I would put Elvis before The Beatles since he inspired them. Who is Kraftwrek?

What a ridiculous selection of songs. How the hell can "Tutti Frutti" be regarded as more important than Heartbreak Hotel? Heartbreak Hotel is THE song which created the Rock and Roll explosion, Tutti Frutti? I want to hold your hand? My Arse. Crap list, Crap concept. So there.
