Chuck Berry – Johnny B. Goode (Live 1958)

“Johnny B. Goode” – the autobiographical saga of a country boy (“colored boy” in the original lyrics) who could “play a guitar just like ringing a bell”. It was given the honor of being the only rock and roll song included on the Voyager Golden Record, which are actual gold-plated records attached on the Voyager I & II space probes with the intent to convey greetings, sounds and images from humanity to any extraterrestrial life encountering the spacecraft as they travel beyond our solar system.
