"Rock Star" is a song by Hannah Montana. It is the last single from the first part of the double album Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus. The track is performed by Miley Cyrus as her alter ego Hannah Montana. The song was featured in the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana and was also used to promote the 3D concert film Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert. In the concert itself, "Rock Star" was the first song performed by Cyrus.

"Rock Star" was declared, by Radio Disney, the 21st best song of 2008.[1]

On Hannah Montana

The song was first heard in the second season episode "Bye Bye Ball" in which Hannah performs the song at an Italian restaurant along with Joey Vitolo (Joey Fatone).[2]

The song is later heard in the episode "(We're So Sorry) Uncle Earl" in which Miley Stewart's Uncle Earl (David Koechner) fulfills his life long dream of becoming a rock star after performing the song on stage with Hannah. Earl includes a dramatic guitar solo which wins the praise of music critic Barney Bittman (Gilbert Godfried). Bittman describes the song as "pure, old school, kick butt rock and roll – the way it should be."[3]

In "Ready, Set, Don't Drive" Miley listens to the song in her car on the way to Ashley's party and improvises the lyrics. The song distracts her from turning off her turn signal which leads to her arrest by Officer Diaria.[4]
