“Don’t Rock the Jukebox” is a song co-written and performed by American country music artist Alan Jackson. It was released on April 29, 1991 as the lead single from the album of the same name, Don’t Rock the Jukebox. It was his second consecutive Number One single on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts. Jackson wrote the song with Roger Murrah and Keith Stegall.

The song also received an ASCAP award for Country Song of the Year in 1992. That same year, the song was covered by Alvin and the Chipmunks, featuring commentary by Alan Jackson himself, for their 1992 album Chipmunks in Low Places.

Kevin John Coyne of Country Universe gave the song an A grade,” saying that the song “defies explanation” because Jackson “perfectly inhabits the song’s affable weariness, and because Scott Hendricks and Keith Stegall arrange it to honky-tonk heaven.”

Alan Jackson – Don’t Rock The Jukebox Lyrics

Don’t rock the jukebox
I wanna hear some Jones
My heart ain’t ready
For the Rolling Stones
I don’t feel like rockin’
Since my baby’s gone
So don’t rock the jukebox
Play me a country song

Before you drop that quarter
Keep one thing in mind
You got a heartbroke hillbilly
Standing here in line
I’ve been down and lonely
Ever since she left
Before you punch that number
Could I make one request

Don’t rock the jukebox
I wanna hear some Jones
My heart ain’t ready
For the Rolling Stones
I don’t feel like rockin’
Since my baby’s gone
So don’t rock the jukebox
Play me a country song

I ain’t got nothin’
Against rock & roll
But when your heart’s been broken
You need a song that’s slow
Ain’t nothin’ like a steel guitar
To drown a memory
Before you spend your money baby
Play a song for me

Don’t rock the jukebox
I wanna hear George Jones
My heart ain’t ready
For the Rolling Stones
I don’t feel like rockin’
Since my baby’s gone
So don’t rock the jukebox
Play me a country song
Ya don’t rock the jukebox
Play me a country song
