Open Your Ears

Rock Music – the type of music that teens in the 1950s loved and their parents hated. Rooted in the blues, Gospel, country, and an older form of rock music called rock-n-roll, this genre took the world by storm and became the music of a generation determined to turn culture upside-down.

“Rock Around the Clock” performed by Bill Haley & His Comets is often considered one of the very first rock-n-roll hits, topping the Billboard charts in 1955 after pairing up with the controversial film ‘Blackboard Jungle’.

Spanning a half-century of musical mayhem, rock genres range from Surf to Heavy Metal to Punk, Grunge and beyond. Find out what makes rock, well, rock.
