Planet Rock album ft. Iron Maiden, Rush, Dio & Alice Cooper on sale now

A bumper 4CD/72-track Planet Rock album featuring Iron Maiden, Rush, Dio, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper and more has gone on sale today (Friday 9th November).

Aptly entitled ‘Planet Rock: The Best Rock Album in the Universe’, the expansive album is a collaboration with Rhino and boasts some of the greatest guitar shredding, head banging, foot stomping rock anthems ever recorded.

Available to buy right here, the album costs just £6.99 to download digitally or £8.79 on CD*. 

Opening with Fleetwood Mac’s ‘The Chain’, CD1 is chock-a-block with towering anthems including Rainbow’s ‘Since You Been Gone’, Boston’s ‘More Than A Feeling’ and Heart’s ‘Barracuda’ before culminating with Whitesnake’s ‘Here I Go Again’.

Encompassing metal (Iron Maiden ‘Can I Play With Madness’, Judas Priest ‘Living After Midnight’), neo-progressive rock (Marillion ‘Kayleigh’), space rock (Hawkwind ‘Silver Machine’) and many more genres, CD2 boasts an eclectic array of tracks.

CD3 features a series of songs released this side of the millennium including Black Stone Cherry ‘Please Come In’, Shinedown ‘Second Chance’ and Avenged Sevenfold ‘Hail To The King’ alongside classics like Dio’s ‘Holy Diver’ and Motörhead’s ‘Motorhead’.

Bringing the collection to an emphatic close on CD4 are tracks like Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, Deep Purple’s ‘Hush’, Rush’s 'Tom Sawyer' and the Ramones’ ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’.
