Evolution of Rock and Roll

                      1950, the birth of Rock and Roll. Early rock was said to sound more like blues with electric guitar. The new sound in music struggled at first to fit in among the crowd due to a popularity with swing music, but little did they know it would be a world wide sound people would come to love. In the 1960’s, more and more rock bands came into existence, such as The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, and Jimi Hendrix. In the 1970’s after the Vietnam war, the sound of rock and roll became more of a settled down version of what was originally thought as rock. Led Zeppelin had a very influential sound combination of hard rock and blues that got many people to listen and imitate this new sound. The 1980’s was a time for insane creativity, hairstyles that would stay for days, and shows you would never forget. Bands like  AC/DC, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Guns and Roses, Van Halen, and Motley Crue are most remembered for this specific look. Overall the music has the same goal and feel. This music has a lot emotion in the lyrics and a lot of energy in the sound. Rock and Roll will be remembered for ever.
