“Roadhouse Blues” is a song by the American rock band the Doors, and appears on the 1970 album Morrison Hotel.
It was released as the B-side of “You Make Me Real”, which peaked at number 50 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The song became a concert staple for the group and it has been covered by numerous artists.
Hailed by sound engineer Bruce Botnick as “the all-time American bar band song,” “Roadhouse Blues”–despite its relatively unsuccessful chart peak–received strong airplay on rock radio stations. The song’s title was also considered to be the name of the album, but it was eventually changed.
