Before rock and roll, there was rhythm and blues. But we aren’t talking about that. Before Rhythm and Blues, there was Jazz. But we aren’t talking about that either. We’re going to be talking about Rock and Roll; its birth and more notably, its death.

It was 1955 when Elvis redefined American culture and brought rock and roll into the mainstream. Part of this success came from his abundance of talent. But I’d be negligible if I didn’t mention Rock and Roll’s rise being amplified by America’s success post World War II AND the recent affordability of electronics entering the family living rooms in the form of television.

As always the youth of the day ran with it first in effort to distinguish themselves from previous generations. The sexual overtones, while controversial at the time, were mild by today’s standards.

Fast forward to the mid ’60s and Rock and Roll was pushing new boundaries by growing more inclusive with the embracing of The Beatles from across the pond and Jimmy Hendrix showing it was crossing color barriers at home.

While it will never go away, rock and roll will never rise to a fraction of the dominance it once had. It went from being friendly in the ’50s, to idealistic in the ’60s, disillusioned by the ’70s, to frustrated and angry through the ’80s and ’90s… only to become soulless by 2000.
