RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World is multi-award winning documentary set to rewrite the history of popular music and reveal the missing chapter about the role of Native Americans. The film takes its title from Link Wray’s 1958 instrumental hit RUMBLE, which pioneered the use of distorted guitar and was an inspiration for countless guitar heroes. Bruce Springsteen’s long-time guitarist Stevie Van Zandt described RUMBLE as “a theme song for juvenile delinquency” but it wasn’t just its rebellious sound that contributed to it being banned by many American radio stations.

The film takes its title from Link Wray’s 1958 instrumental hit RUMBLE, which pioneered the use of distorted guitar and was an inspiration for countless guitar heroes. Link Wray was a Native American whose music and indigenous identity posed a threat to the white-washed rock and roll of the time. Canadian legend Robbie Robertson recalls as a young musician being told “Be proud you’re an Indian, but be careful who you tell.” His story and those of other highly influential indigenous musicians is fascinatingly told by some of the most recognizable figures in rock, jazz, blues, and pop music.
