Happy October Gritties!
Welcome to our first-ever Roc⚡️-Tober, where we are rockin-and rolling all month long and partying EVERY DAY!!!
It’s a new month, an official new season, we have new GRIT apparel in the shop, so we thought we’d “rock” this harvest out with the theme of ROC⚡️’tober where we will bring you rock-n-roll theme rides every week at both studios, and culminate it out on Halloween where the staff will dress up as their favorite music legend.
In honor of Roc⚡️tober we asked the staff what are some of their favorite rock-n-roll hits, and put them together in a Spotify playlist for you.
Here’s what they had to say:
I love classic rock. It always brings me right back to some sort of memory or happy place; it’s hard to choose just one… but I would have to say “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd is my top pick. -Zoe
“Mama, I’m Coming Home“-Ozzy Osbourne-Andrea
I looooove Barbie Girl by Aqua!! Once Jess played it in class for my bday ride, it was awesome….but the whole class, couldn’t quite figure out why! haha.-Kat
“Africa” by Toto-Leigh
“Jump” by Van Halen –Danielle
“The Stroke” by Billy Squier, “Girls” by the Beastie Boys, and “Highway to Hell” by ACDC-Cassie

“Cute Without the “E” by taking back Sunday, “Writing on the Walls” by Underoath, “In Fear and Faith” by Circa Survive, and “Notion” or “Closer” by Kings of Leon- Marisa A.
“Coup d’Etat” by Refused. “Hail to the King” by Avenged Sevenfold. “Brain Damage” by Pink Floyd. “Kickstart my Heart” by Motley Crue. “My Michelle” by Guns N Roses. “Razorblade Kiss” by HIM. “I can keep going if you want more!“-Dani
“EVERYTHING Smashing Pumpkins! Siamese Dream is my favorite album, “Sweet Sweet” and “Luna.” “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls and “One” by Metallica.-Nicci
My top 5 with a 6th thrown in for good measure are: “Everlong” by Foo Fighters, “Come as You Are” by Nirvana, Escape from Hellview by CKY, “Sweet Child of Mine” by Guns n Roses, “Voodoo Child” by Jimi Hendrix, “Trilogy Suite Op. 5” by Yngwie Malmsteen, “Slither” by Velvet Revolver, and “Clap Hands” by Tom Waits-Abby

“Don’t Follow” by Alice in Chains because no matter how many times I listen to it, I ALWAYS cry, and “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails because I’m a mother of a toddler. –Katie
