Groupe Rock 'n' Roll US originaire de Richmond (Virginie). Les Rock-A-Teens étaient composés de Vic Mizelle, Bobby "Boo" Walke, Bill Cook, Eddie Robinson, Paul Dixon et Bill Smith.

One of the genuinely compelling true primitive rock 'n roll acts of the late 1950's, the Rock-a-Teens (not to be confused with the identically-named 1990's outfit) generated some real excitement with their one major claim to fame, the bracing single of "Woo-Hoo" b/w "Untrue" for Roulette in 1959. As legend—probably close to the truth has it—the band cut the stomping A-side and its companion in the back room of a record store and sold it to the Doran label. They had it, but it was Roulette that got "Woo-Hoo" into stores and jukeboxes in 1959, before the band disappeared into the mists of time.
The " Rock'n'roll-A-Teens " were composed of Vic Mizelle, Bobby "Boo" Walke, Bill Cook, Eddie Robinson, Paul Dixon and Bill Smith.
