The History of Rock & Roll
Soundstructure Studios - February 3, 2023
Rock and roll is a genre of popular music that emerged in the mid-20th century. Its origins can be traced to African American musical styles such as blues, gospel, and jazz, as well as to country and western music. Rock and roll became popular in the 1950s, and early pioneers of the genre include Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, and Little Richard. In the 1960s, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones popularized the British Invasion of rock music, and the genre continued to evolve with artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and the Grateful Dead. In the 1970s, punk rock and heavy metal emerged, followed by new wave and alternative rock in the 1980s and 1990s. Today, rock and roll continues to be a major force in popular music, with new artists constantly pushing the boundaries of the genre.
