Rock and roll is the ultimate party music; so why not host the ultimate rock and roll party? Rock is the ultimate party music anyway, so why not host a rockin' party.

The playlist for a rock and roll party should be filled with music that is fun, rhythmic and totally rockin. The playlist is of key importance here, so choose songs carefully.

The ideal rock and roll party playlist could include songs such as:

RockíníRoll All Night by Kiss. It just would not be a rock party without this surefire crowd pleaser.
RockíníRoll Hoochie Coo by Rick Derringer
Rock and Roll Fantasy by Bad Company
Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix
I Wanna Hold Your Hand by The Beatles. Remember the Fab Four with this danceable tune.
Light My Fire by The Doors. This classic will light a fire under guests' feet.
Me and Bobby McGee by Janis Joplin. Remember the first lady of rock with this timeless tune.
Letís Get Rocked by Def Leppard
I Love RockíníRoll by Joan Jett
Start Me Up by The Rolling Stones
Rock and Roll Heart by Eric Clapton
Naturally, no rock and roll party would be complete without some truly rockiní party supplies. These could include posters and wall art depicting rock and roll legends like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Plastic and paper mache guitars and microphones could hang from the ceiling, overlooking an inflatable juke box and a very real karaoke machine. Take home party supplies could include quaint little guitar (tooth)picks, various CD singles from various artists, and cookies in the shape of musical notes. Creative idea: Matching or contrasting color decor items such as plates and cups will work for any theme ideas. If you specify the type of clothing for a social event like summer causal, give a few examples of what is acceptable and more importantly what isn't. When all is said and done, favors given to those guests who were able to attend will both feel appreciated and be reminded of the day whenever they look at that favor.

Rock the house with the ultimate rock and roll party cake! This rockin' treat is sure to take the proverbial cake!

A rock and roll party cake should be as lively and original as the musical art form that inspires it. Just keep in mind, though, that a creative cake does not have to be difficult to make. And, believe it or not, it also can be fun!

A sample rock and roll party cake could resemble a traditional vinyl record; the guests wonít have to know that the host simply baked a chocolate cake and soothed grooves into its icing, perhaps placing a fake candied record label at its center. Guests are sure to marvel at this creativity. Or she could just bake a standard round or sheet cake and top it with some rockiní party supplies, such as mininature plastic musical instruments as well as musical notes. Guests are sure to recognize these rockin' symbols.

For a more substantial culinary challenge, the host could create an oversized rock and roll party cake that resembles a guitar or musical note. This type of theme cake could be prepared most easily with the help of a shaped cake mold; if this is not available, the host could make parts of the cake in smaller, standard molds, joining them together in the shape of a guitar or musical note and decorating them accordingly. The work will be worth it when you see the results.

Any host can rock out with a rock and roll party cake that will have guests singing her praises! You will eat up the praise as they eat up the cake.

Throwing a Rock and Roll Party can get pretty complicated at times, with several decades of rock and many different styles to choose from. Since there are indeed so many different types of rock the first thing you need to do is find out just what types your guests like. Maybe some of your friends might be into the older stuff like Elvis, or the Beach Boys. Or maybe with the popularity of High School Musical, they're into that type of vibe. This would definitely clash with some of the newer genres of rock where the main goal is how loud it is. In fact if you do have some fans of the more incomprehensible bands you could have a misheard lyrics competition, to write down what they think the lyrics are. The results are usually hilarious.

Obviously, if you are going for a rock and roll party you need to play rock music in the background. You could pick different songs from guest suggestions and play them randomly. The guests could even provide the CDís to play from. If things become slow, you could have a rock trivia contest and the winner gets to chose the music until someone takes them down in the next contest.You could also have a contest with guests portraying Miley Cyrus in High School Musical. As for the decorations, rock posters, concert wall scrolls, music notes, guitar props or pictures, are all great ideas to decorate with. Maybe you could even throw in some flashing lights, streamers and confetti. Really though since this is a rock and roll party almost any party decorations would do the trick.

Parties can get quite messy especially those that are inherently oriented toward music or dance. Your guests will have a tendency to take their plates with them as they move around. So make sure to purchase plenty of napkins, paper plates, cups, plastic utensils and the like. Also if you happen to get everyone to sit at one table by some miracle, you may want to invest in some disposable placemats and table covers.

The Rock and Roll party celebrates the most fun, festive type of music on the airwaves. There is nothing more fun and funky than good ol' rock music. And like the genre it celebrates, the nature and character of this party has changed throughout the years. This ain't your grandma's rock party, in other words.

The 1950s marked the dawn of rock and roll, and with this exciting new musical genre came the Rock and Roll Party. Clean cut kids in poodle skirts (for the girls) and slick haircuts and ties (for the boys) met at school dances and dance halls for American Bandstand-style parties, at which they danced to songs like ďRock Around the Clock,Ē enjoyed treats like punch and cookies, and socialized. Everything was squeaky clean in those pristine days.

During the Ď60s and Ď70s, rock took on a harder, more socially relevant edge. People let their hair down and dressed in sunglasses and psychedelic colors for rock and roll parties, dancing to The Beatles and The Doors and talking serious issues, like war, civil and equal rights, and the environment. Even the most frivolous festivities had a serious undertone.

The 1980s were a colorful decade, and rock parties followed suit by erupting in vibrant colors; hues like red, bright blue and gold that expressed themselves in fashions, decorations and even refreshments. This was the decade of color and celebration to be sure. Guests did dances like the Thriller and the Robot, rocking out to music acts like Duran Duran, Culture Club, Madonna, Prince and Michael Jackson.

The Ď90s were a darker time, a time when rock and roll parties took on a moodier, almost somber tone. Kids met in low-lit coffeehouses for rock parties that also involved poetry readings and deep political discussions. They evoked the spirit of the '60s in a sense. When they danced, they moved to songs from Nirvana and Pearl Jam.

Todayís rock and roll parties represent a mishmash of styles; one minute guests could be jamming to Cold Play or Maroon 5, the next they could be bopping to Katy Perry or Miley Cyrus.

Regardless of the choice of music or decorations at a modern rock party, itís guaranteed that everyone will have a rockiní good time. Plan a Rock and Roll Party today!
