AllMusic Review by

VH1's It's Only Rock & Roll collects three decades' worth of rock-movie music highlights, from Little Richard's "Ready Teddy" and Buddy Holly & the Crickets' "Oh Boy!" to the Commitments' "Mustang Sally" and Michael Sembello's "Maniac." John Cafferty & the Beaver Brown Band's "On the Dark Side," Frankie Valli's "Grease," Paul Simon's "Late in the Evening," and "The Time Warp" from Rocky Horror Picture Show are some of the album's other highlights; songs from the Monkees, Los Lobos, the Ramones, and Ike & Tina Turner round out this entertaining collection of film-focused pop.
