Transcript of Copy of Rock & Roll Diffusion

5. When Rock n' Roll entered the late 1950's adn early 1960's, it began its decline. During this time some of the founders of Rock n' Roll had all kinds of problems. For example, in 1959, Buddy Holly died (he was one of the founders of rock), Little Richard retired and became a preacher. Another event that played a role in Rock's decline was when Chuck Berry was arrested in 1959. On top of all of that, a new form of music, love ballads, were starting to take over. This process was known as the feminisation of Rock n' Roll because if was directed to a female audience. All of these factors played a major role of preventing or slowing the spread of Rock n' Role.
6. Rock n' Roll was altered numerous times while it was being culturally diffused. It was changed over time to appeal to many different cultures. For example, it changed to appeal to the African culture, and the teen population. For the African culture it played a major role in the Civil Rights Movement. It allowed African Americans to reach out to the white audience in the form of Rock known as Jazsz, Blues, Gospel, and Soul. For the teen population,, it gave teens a sense of purpose when they were alone. Teen Rock reached out to them because most of the songs were about school, dating, clothing, etc.
7. The biggest part of the population that had accepted this music was the teens. As stated in a previous question, much of the older generations thought it was influencing young kids to rebel.
8. Rock n' Roll is an example of contagious diffusion.
1. Rock and Roll originated in the Americas, and it has been dated back to the early 1750's but never took off until 1920

2. Rock and Roll spread from America, mostly California, to all over America. It also spread through television, movies and the radio in Europe and the United Kingdom.
This is a picture of Pierce the Veil. They are a popular band.
3. Rock n' Roll has musical origins that trace back to the early 1920's.
4. Rock n' Roll spread a couple of ways. One of the ways was with the help of technology. Musicians were and still able to play their music over the radio as long as they pay for it. They also had recorded their music and sold it in stores. They continuosly had concerts even though many people disagreed with the music style and it was believed that Rock n' Roll influenced teens to rebel, but the concerts kept being played and records were still being bought just like they are today.

Rock n' Roll music was actually traced back to West Africa along with many other music styles and later made its way to Europe and the United States where it became unique and fit different styles.
This is the Beatles. They were a popular band of the 1960's.
