"Gimme Some Rock 'n Roll" is a song from Big Bird's "Yellow Ambition Rock Concert Tour" as seen in a 1992 episode.

On the last stop of the tour, Big Bird and his band appear at the bus stop, where Luis waits for his bus. Their song is about a time when Big Bird wanted some rock and roll, but people giving him things that rhyme with "rock" instead (including a clock and sock). After the song, Luis' bus arrives, but can't get past Big Bird to catch it.

The song parodies "Old Time Rock and Roll" by Bob Seger.
