You're probably ready to write this one off as a novelty; after all, 13 of the 15 tracks have the word "rock" in their title. While the Flintstones may have been the coolest Stone Age family, they're still not the Rolling Stones when it comes to known "rockers." However, this is a strong collection of rockabilly and early-rock-influenced numbers. Once past the opening Flintstones Cast medley, things take off with serious aggression. Bill Haley and the Comets, Moon Mullican, the Johnny Burnette Trio, and B.B. King are among the established classic rockers included. The young whippersnappers hold up the tradition as well. Well-known rockologist (famous for his uncanny ability to approximate any genre with pathos) Nick Lowe is featured twice, and twisted outlaw country star Robbie Fulks and the Reverend Horton Heat keep things on track. Grammy nominee Susan Tedeschi contributes "Rock Me Right." Most important, the producers avoided the temptation of including Paul Simon's very unrocking "Loves Me Like a Rock." Sometimes, it's the little things. --Rob O'Connor

"One simple question.... What is the name of the tune and who is the artist (guess that is two questions)of the song that plays when Fred takes Whelma home to Betty's after going to the carnival. It continues while Fred and Whelma are dating in fast scene switching. Help!"
The Flintstones soundtrack is pretty good.

"I just recently saw the movie, and the music on it is great. It has a new version of The Flintstones theme song and a new version of Viva Las Vegas.(Viva Rock Vegas.) The songs are actually pretty cool. They have some rock and roll in it."
