Music sample

"Rock'n Roll Band" is a song by Swedish pop group ABBA (then credited as "Björn & Benny with Anna & Frida") from the album Ring Ring.

In the USA, the song was released as single by Playboy Records. It was issued in 1973 as a follow-up to the minor hit "People Need Love", although the Ring Ring album was not released in the United States until 1995. The flipside on the initial pressing was "Another Town, Another Train", but later was the same as the A-side.

In the UK, it was released as the B-side to Ring Ring when issued in October 1973, and when re-issued in June 1974.

There are at least 2 known versions of this track: the 3.11 version released as ABBA, and a shorter early mix, released on the remastered version of Lycka by Benny & Bjorn.
