Johnny B. Goode (1958)
Written by Chuck Berry
Chuck Berry
The #1 Top Rock 'n' Roll Song of the 1950s


Chuck Berry
October 18, 1926 – March 18, 2017


"Johnny B. Goode" is a famous 1958 rock and roll song by Chuck Berry. It reached #8 on the Billboard pop chart, and remains one of Berry's best known songs.

Written by Berry in 1955, the song is a rock and roll version of the American dream — a poor country boy becomes a celebrity by hard work and inspired guitar playing.

The opening guitar riff on "Johnny B. Goode" may be the most famous single riff in rock and roll history. It is essentially a note-for-note copy of the opening single-note solo on Louis Jordan's "Ain't That Just Like a Woman" (1946), played by guitarist Carl Hogan.
