What's your secret rock-out song?

It depends on my mood. I'll go from Buddy Holly to Eminem.
—Tom Cruise

Tim McGraw:
"Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard. I like to get in my wife's high heels and dance.

E.U.'s "Da Butt." I do a little butt move.

George Eads (CSI):
Anything by Pat Benatar. I had a boyhood crush that I never quite got over. I am an air-guitar professional. Something about Ms. Benatar gets me strumming.

Tina Turner's ['Proud Mary']. I rock out. My hair goes all over.
—Nicole Richie

Erika Christensen:
"Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-Lot. You just can't help but sing along.

Simon Le Bon:
Oasis's "Cigarettes & Alcohol" for sure. But there's also Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life," which makes you go crazy every time.

Ryan Seacrest:
"She's Gone" by Hall & Oats. I do a concert with the remote in my living room.

Kelly Clarkson:
"Deuces are Wild" by Aerosmith.

Josh Groban:
I listen to Rage Against the Machine constantly. "Bulls on Parade" is the one that gets me in a freaking crazy, a good crazy.

Jon Cryer:
LL Cool J's "Headsprung." I drive a Volvo, so I am the white guy in the Volvo singing the LL Cool J song at the top of his lungs.

Emmy Rossum:
"Girls Just Want to Have Fun." I do a shimmy to it.

Nicholas Gonzalez (The O.C.):
Joe Jackson's "Is She Really Going Out with Him?" I sing. I dance. Not so much air guitar, I'm more the frontman in my rock-star fantasies.

Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer." It's a hot record; it has high energy. I like the way Jon screams the chorus "Whoa, we're halfway there!"
—Ja Rule

Kim Cattrall:
I love the Rocky theme: "Getting strong now..." It really pumps me up, especially when I'm doing something physical.

Kenny Chesney:
"Rock Candy" by Sammy Hagar. I love the raw energy of it. We play it all the time on the road. Every time we warm up, we play that song.

Regina King:
Schoolhouse Rock songs! My husband [thinks] I'm crazy when I'm in the shower singing, "Conjunction Junction, what's your function?"

Alan Cumming:
"(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman."

Joe Pantoliano:
"Let's Get It Started" by the Black Eyed Peas. I sing it in the car by myself or with my four kids. Then we dance and do some head banging when we get out.

Cedric the Entertainer:
"Bang Your Head" by Quiet Riot. It gets my head going and I yell the words. I've gotten caught by my black friends. They give the stare-down and say, "Why would you even know that song?"

Britney Spears' "Toxic." It just pumps me up. I do choreography in my car with the top down in L.A. People look at me like I've lost my mind.
—Tyra Banks
