About Rocks

"Rocks" is a song by British group Primal Scream, taken from their fourth album, Give Out But Don't Give Up. This song was the first indication of Primal Scream's change in musical style, when compared to their previous album, 1991's Screamadelica, which featured dance leanings. "Rocks" (and the whole Give Out But Don't Give Up album) features a more classic rock structure inspired by artists such as T. Rex, The Rolling Stones and The Faces. Faces singer Rod Stewart would later cover the song himself, including it on his 1998 album When We Were the New Boys. The intro is in a similar style to the drumbreak of Sly & The Family Stone's "Dance to the Music"."Rocks" was released as a single in 1994 and reached number seven on the UK Singles Chart, acting as a double A-side with another of the band's songs, "Funky Jam". Together they were the highest-charting Primal Scream single until "Country Girl" in 2006. In 2018 the song received a Silver certification from the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) for sales and streams exceeding 200,000.
