Rocky Horror Picture Show: The Ultimate Covers Mixtape

The Rocky Horror Picture Show turns 35 this week.

Rocks Off started going to the midnight queen of cult movies at the River Oaks Theater when we were just 15 years old, and has now strapped on high heels and corsets as part of the cast for the better part of a decade.

It's an experience so wonderfully over the edge that millions continue to flock to movie theatre every weekend just to yell lines and DANCE "The Time Warp" all over the world while shadowcasts pantomime and alter the movie with unending joy and dedication.

In Rocks Off's time at Rocky, we amassed a huge collection of cover songs and other rarities to use as background music in the River Oaks Theatre while the cast set up their props and costumes. So enjoy Jef With One F's Ultimate Rocky Horror Mixtape!

We'd like to thank Shawn McHorse for his help over the years in getting the music from Rocky at his Musical World of Rocky Horror.
