“Bad To The Bone” is a song composed by American blues and rock singer and guitarist George Thorogood that was included on the album of the same name released in 1982 with his band The Destroyers.
The song is based on another previously made by Bo Diddley, especially in its guitar riff, “I’m a Man”, a classic blues-rock by the Mississippi singer, and it was not an immediate success, although later and thanks to the appearance of his The video clip on the MTV channel did become a classic of the style and Thorogood’s best-known and most successful song.
The guitar riff of “Bad To the Bone” is considered one of the most important in the history of blues-rock and is among the first in many rankings and pages.
