Rainbow Dash crashes yet again and is grounded for a few weeks. During this time, she picks up the guitar and starts learning to play, when she has a great idea.

Form a band with her friends! But what type of music should they play, and who will take what instruments?

Oh boy I hope this is as good as I hope for it to be!

1025160 As do I. :twilightblush: The whole story came to me after watching some MLP vids on youtube and playing guitar. lol

This better be rock n roll, not rock....

1025195 There will be various references. Expect a lot of 80s stuff. Hair metal, rock n roll, maybe even some classic rock will slip in. The title was based on the song title from Led Zeppelin (corrected for Fleetwood_Brougham :pinkiesad2: ). Each chapter will contain a song name (at least is my current plan). :twilightsmile::twilightsmile:

1025204 I'm talking '50's! And you spelled Led Zeppelin wrong!

1025214 Shush you I'm at work and on my phone lol.

1025220 You don't KNOW rock 'n' roll!
THIS is rock 'n' roll!

1025228 Well no promises that I'll dip that far back in music history, however you never know. Depends on what the ponies want to do. Could even go more metal than rock. We shall just have to see. :pinkiehappy:

This certainly looks promising.

I remember reading a fic LIKE this one, except it ended up with Rarity being a death metal singer, and it was the most hilarious thing I'd ever read. From what I've seen thus far, you've got the potential. Let's see if you can step it up.

Fav'd and thumbs up'd.

1025241 Thanks for the fav and thumbs up. I can promise Rarity will not be a death metal singer, though I would love to read the fic that placed her in such a role. :raritystarry:

I'll try to keep the updates common for this, however right now my other fic "Of Loyalty and Chaos" is my primary and this is a fun fic to break up the task of keeping that story driving forward. :twilightsmile:

1025240 Yeah, it's ALWAYS METAL....:trixieshiftleft:
Metal in a nutshell

1025254 Negative. There are many many different types of metal. Such as: Blind Guardian

1025284 I love that music too. :twilightsmile: As long as it isn't Rap or Country, I can enjoy it greatly. Maybe I'll even put Slow Ride in the story, just for you. :twilightsheepish:

I remember having an almost IDENTICAL idea (it's already completed here), but Pinkie Pie would start it all instead of Dash.

Maybe you can do better, since my story (two of 'em, lol) is total garbage. I was NOT born for this. :facehoof:

1025300 I like a little of the older rap, and plenty of old country, BOTH have gone downhill.

I'm glad all of you are enjoying it. This is getting more views faster than my other story. I guess I'll dedicate more time to this one. I promise a new chapter by Sunday. :rainbowkiss: Just for you guys!

dis gun b featured

1025388 I don't know how I would handle being on the featured list. :rainbowlaugh: I would need to up my game quite a bit.

Some stories are very hard to put into Fimfiction, such as some crossovers or a fiction like this. It's difficult to make a good one... but hey, I shouldn't be talking! I haven't written my own fimfic! :moustache:

Anyway bro... could I see your own story?



Hmm, I would have imagined AJ as another guitar player instead of Twilight. Even still, seems interesting enough to warrent following.

Sure, it's called Pony Rock. Feel free to tell me how much I suck when you finish reading both parts.

1025678 Bah. I plan on reading it, and I'm sure it is awesome :):pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::twilightsmile::twilightsmile:

Mötley Crüe. Also good chapter.

Lead singer Fluttershy. Yes. Just yes.

:pinkiehappy: Yes yes yes yes! :D I can't help but picture Fluttershy in some corpse paint. :)

Needs to be more kvlt :rainbowwild:

Just updating: Currently working on the next chapter. Sorry it has been a while, crunch time at work kicked in and I had to get my chapter for Of Loyalty and Chaos ready to upload. Next day or so we should see what the band is up to:ajsmug:

In the mean time, feel free to submit name ideas for the band :twilightsmile:

yo this is so awesome :rainbowkiss: and this.is what i had in mind (i tried to base this on personality):

Vocals: Rainbow Dash
Co-lead Guitar: Applejack
Co-lead Guitar: Rarity
Bass: Fluttershy
Piano and Keyboards: Twilight Sparkle
Drums: Pinkie Pie

and can you please do one on Wild Side by Motley Crue, please?

1525327 Hey hey. I'm glad you enjoy the story. Sadly it has been on a bit of a hiatus (not by choice) with life going the way it is want to do. I'm currently in the middle of a large chapter for my other story on here, Of Loyalty and Chaos, but just for you I will see if I can work that song in when I get to working on this story. :twilightsmile:

1525913 oh i hope everything goes well and the best for you! and thanks you are the best! :pinkiehappy:

you should put in some Rush songs such as Limelight or A Passage to Bangkok (of course you would have to alter the lyrics to a passage to bangkok)
Here's Limelight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwXjnVICb3I
and here's A Passage to Bangkok with lyrics that you can alter for the story: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4rcyspnbVE

Good news everyone. While I have two other stories I'm working on, I am also planning a new chapter for Rock and Roll finally. Work and life have leveled off and I am ready to get this ball rolling again, slowly.

1677746 I probably won't be putting any Rush songs in this story as I don't like that particular band, but I am always willing to give new tracks a shot even by bands I don't care for. I listened to both of those songs you linked and A Passage to Bangkok was better than most Rush songs, but still wasn't feeling it.

1531715 Just so you know, I have been listening to Wild Side several times this week trying to figure out how to fit it into the story with little luck. I'm still trying, but I might have to go with another Crue song instead :twilightsheepish:

Hmm a link to that Flutters sang would be so bad :ajbemused:
