Rock Around The Clock

This Sunday-sized themed tribute puzzle was originally created in the Spring of 2015 as a prize for the Enigma Variations crossword metapuzzle contest, but we held off its release to coincide with the publication of another puzzle by its constructor for the New York Times. After completing the puzzle (spoiler), learn more about its concept and back-story, including numerous interesting musical interludes, by clicking here for our "midrash."
