NOW – That’s What I Call Rock

The hugely successful NOW series has just announced their first-ever Rock Compilation which is set for release on Friday, January 22nd. The curators did a nice job delivering a diverse cross-section of rock music for this excellent collection. Click to see who made the cut on this historic album.

The track listing includes a slew of songs that graced our recently published Top 25 Rock Songs of 2015, including our number one selection “S.O.B.” by Nathaniel RAteliff & The Night Sweats. The rest of the tracks should all be familiar to RARAs Farm readers, as we’ve featured many over the last year including a few other artists who have topped recent year-end lists, such as Royal Blood, Shinedown and Chris Cornell.

Other bands appearing on the historical compilation include Walk The Moon, Seether and Cage The Elephant. Seeing “Otherside” from Red Sun Rising was a great surprise, too, as this talented Ohio band continues to gain much deserved attention: first RARA’s Farm #5 Rock Song of the Year, now NOW!

Overall, it’s a killer collection of rock, and it should be a nice shot in the arm for the rock industry as a whole.
