"Rock n' Roll Madonna" is a song by Elton John with lyrics written by Bernie Taupin. The song was released as a single in Britain in 1970, where it never charted. It appeared on several bootlegs and rarities compilations before it appeared on the 1995 remaster of his self-titled album. The song structure is, as the title says, a rock n' roll song. Live-effects has been added, with an audience cheering throughout most of the song, anticipating similar usage in Bennie and the Jets.

Its b-side, "Grey Seal" was later recorded for his album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. The version from 1970 also appeared on the 1995 reissue of his self-titled album.
