Rock And Roll

Transcript: Where did Rock 'n' Roll come from? It was stemmed from the combination of African American blues, country, jazz, and gospel music. Though elements of rock and roll can be heard in country records of the 1930s and in blues records from the 1920s, rock and roll did not acquire its name until the 1950s. Alan Freed Alan Freed was a well-known disc jockey on mainstream radio. His nick name is the "father of rock and roll" due to his promotion of the style of music, He helped bridge the gap of segregation among young teenage Americans, Alan also presented music by African-American artists. He was one cool cat. Reaching the Mass Audience. Radios and televisions played a major part in making rock and roll become popular. So did records. Impact on America. In the 1950's, the United States was divided by racial segregation, but rock and roll changed racism forever. Because of the rise of Rock and Roll's new popularity, black artists were becoming more popular with audiences of all races. In the early days of Rock and Roll, black artists were sold mostly to black people. This started to change as Rock and Roll became more popular with young teenagers. Black and white teenagers liked the same artists which brought them together. Positives! In 1950, rock and roll helped distract Americans from all the political conflicts and the fear of the atomic bombing from other countries. Another reason rock and roll helped America in a positive way is that it helped advance our technology even more. Electric guitars could play louder music, Recording studios used the latest technology to improve spread the rock and roll sound. Radios and record players were everywhere. Negatives.

Adults disapprove! Teenagers were marginalized by the adults. Adults did not like the new values and lifestyles among the 1950 teenagers. Parents would not tolerate the "brain washing" music, so they shut down teen dances, records were banned, students were expelled for minor reasons, like talking back and chewing gum. They set new rules and restrictions for everything. Parents were worried their children might be "juvenile delinquents." The older generations were especially worried about "juvenile delinquency." Every family has their disputes between parent and child, but in the 1950s, it was much more worse. Generation Gap. Before WWII, a teen's exposure to music was limited to adult radio and records. The adults decided what should be allowed in the house. The music choice was "white" music. They were very strict with life and music unlike teens.

Transcript: The worldwide popularity of rock music meant that it became a major influence on culture, fashion and social attitudes. Different sub-genres of rock were adopted by, and became central to, the identity of a large number of sub-cultures. Bands like The Animals from Newcastle and Them from Belfast,[44] and particularly those from London like The Rolling Stones and The Yardbirds, were much more directly influenced by rhythm and blues and later blues music. Soon these groups were composing their own material, combining US forms of music and infusing it with a high energy beat. Beat bands tended towards "bouncy, irresistible melodies", while early British rhythm and blues acts tended towards less sexually innocent, more aggressive songs, often adopting an anti-establishment stance Just Rock By the end of 1962, what would become the British rock scene had started with beat groups like The Beatles, Gerry & The Pacemakers and The Searchers from Liverpool and Freddie and the Dreamers, Herman's Hermits and The Hollies from Manchester. They drew on a wide range of American influences including soul, rhythm and blues and surf music Because of its complex history and tendency to borrow from other musical and cultural forms, it has been argued that "it is impossible to bind rock music to a rigidly delineated musical definition." Emergence (mid- to late 1960s) 1 The British Invasion 2 Garage rock 3 Pop rock 4 Blues-rock 5 Folk rock 6 Psychedelic rock The sound of rock is traditionally centred around the electric guitar, which emerged in its modern form in the 1950s with the popularization of rock and roll. The sound of the electric guitar in rock music is typically supported by the electric bass guitar pioneered in jazz music in the same era, and percussion produced from a drum kit that combines drums and cymbals. This trio of instruments has often been complemented by the inclusion of others, particularly keyboards such as the piano, Hammond organ and synthesizers. A group of musicians performing rock music is termed a rock band or rock group and typically consists of between two and five members. Classically, a rock band takes the form of a quartet whose members cover one or more roles, including vocalist, lead guitarist, rhythm guitarist, bass guitarist, drummer and occasionally that of keyboard player or other instrumentalist.
