"Rocks" is a song by British group Primal Scream. It is taken from the group's fourth album, Give Out But Don't Give Up. The song was released as a single in 1994 and reached number 7 on the UK Singles Chart, acting as a double A-side with another of the band's songs, "Funky Jam". Together they were the highest-ranked Primal Scream single until "Country Girl" in 2006. This song was the first indication of Primal Scream's change of musical style, when compared to their last album, 1991's Screamadelica, which featured dance leanings. "Rocks" (and the whole Give Out But Don't Give Up album in general) featured a more classic rock structure inspired by that of artists such as The Rolling Stones and Rod Stewart and the Faces. Stewart would later in fact cover the song himself, releasing it in his 1998 album When We Were the New Boys. The intro is in similar style to the drumbreak of Sly & The Family Stone's "Dance to the Music".
