T.REX – Glam Rock Stomper ‘GET IT ON’ Came Out 50 Years Ago Today

Top singles from the past…

2 July 2021

This day 50 years ago, on 2 July 1971 the late great Marc Bolan‘s
glam rock band T. REX released GET IT ON, one of their 24 Karat
knockout hits.

Bolan revealed later that he took the main riff from Chuck Berry‘s hit
Little Queenie. In the US the track was renamed ‘Bang a Gong (Get It On)
to avoid confusion with a song of the same name by a combo called Chase.

Let’s groove it on…
