A question: Is "Rip It Up," which was played on the Shove It tour a song all its own or is it a proto-version of "Bad Attitude" (the way "Tear It Up" was at the Dec. 7th, 1990 Fan Club concert)?

If it's its own song, who wrote it?

Both, Little Richard and Bill Haley And His Comets released the song as a single in 1956.
