Rock Songs: Our 'Levitated Mass' Playlist

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Unless you've been living under, ahem, a rock, you've probably heard that Michael Heizer's 340-ton art project Levitated Mass opens to the public on Sunday morning at LACMA.

To commemorate the occasion, we've put together a playlist for the big boulder, selecting a baker's dozen as our Sunday morning soundtrack. Songs that made the cut include: "Rocks and Daggers" by Noah and the Whale; "Rock Your Socks" by Tenacious D; "Rock Your Body" by Justin Timberlake; "Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO; "I Don't Wanna Rock" by Bowling for Soup (for all the haters out there); as well as oldies by Queen and Bob Dylan.

What would you add to the Levitated Mass playlist?
