When my girlfriend showed me this video, my jaw literally dropped. Someone decided to layer Link Wray’s, ‘Rumble’ over the intro footage from The Delicate Delinquent, a movie starring Jerry Lewis.
Link Wray is one bad mother. He is responsible for that transition during the 50′s from electric blues, straight into what we consider modern rock, through the use of power chords. This song introduced a new found rebellion in the music industry without saying a word, at a time when the film industry began portraying juvenile delinquency through theatre.
Oh, there’s jeans in the clip as well to ogle over. 1950′s denim on film…!! Hit the pause button boys, grab your chambray tissues, your leather wax and oils.!! Lock the door and turn the volume up for a change!
