HBO's Vinyl Soundtrack Guide: Every Song & The History Behind It

HBO's Vinyl soundtrack includes some of the most popular songs from the 1950s to the 1970s as well as covers of that music by contemporary artists. Vinyl comes from Martin Scorsese and the 2016 series depicts the music scene of New York City in the 1970s when sex and drugs were as synonymous with rock as "roll" was. However, for American Century Records founder and president Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale), hip-hop, punk, and disco's rising popularity threatens to collapse everything he's built. Vinyl features an ensemble cast of fictional and historical characters telling a story that mixes time period, industry, and music in Scorsese's favorite playground: New York City.
