7) It is a 12-bar blues with words and music by Hank Ballard. It was recorded by Hank Ballard & the Midnighters (formerly The Royals) in Cincinnati on the Federal Records label on January 14, 1954, and released the following month. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) immediately opposed it due to its overtly sexual lyrics, lyrics that had crossed over and were now being listened to by a white teenage audience. Because the record was in such demand and received so much publicity, attempts to restrict it failed and the record shot to #1 on the R&B charts and remained there for seven weeks. It is part of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list.

8) It is a song by American rock band The Stooges, recorded for the group's third album Raw Power (1973). Lead singer Iggy Pop said that he pulled the title "from a column heading in a Time article about the Vietnam War." In 1997, "Search and Destroy" along with the rest of the songs on Raw Power were remixed and remastered by Iggy Pop and Bruce Dickinson. The result was far more aggressive and stripped down than the original release, which had been mixed by David Bowie. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked it #468 on their list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time".

10) It is an rock 'n' roll song written by Richard Berry in 1955.  It has become a standard in pop and rock, with hundreds of versions recorded by different artists.  The song was originally written and performed in the style of a Jamaican ballad; and tells, in simple verse-chorus form, the first-person story of a Jamaican sailor returning to the island to see his lady love.  A recording by The Kingsmen in 1963 is the best-known version.  First released in May 1963, the single was initially issued by the small Jerden label, before being picked up by the larger Wand Records and released by them in October 1963. It entered the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for December 7, and peaked at number two the following week; it would remain in the top 10 through December and January before dropping off in early February. In total, the Kingsmen's version spent 16 weeks on the Hot 100.  The song did reach #1 on the Cashbox pop chart, as well as #1 on the Cashbox R&B chart. The version quickly became a standard at teen parties in the U.S. during the 1960s, even reappearing on the charts in 1966.
