"Rock Around the Clock" is sung by the Rats on episode 405 of The Muppet Show. This classic rock and roll number was made famous by Bill Haley and His Comets in 1954 and is widely credited with sparking the rock and roll era in 1955 when it was featured as the theme music for the film Blackboard Jungle. For years it was listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest-selling vinyl pop recording, with an estimated 25 million copies sold.
Coincidentally, Episode 405 aired around the same time that Haley performed "Rock Around the Clock" on television for the last time during a Royal Command Performance for Queen Elizabeth II.
