how rock and roll influenced america

Report as

Rock and Roll appeared on the music scene and brought excitement to the popular music of the 1940's which was perceived as boring by the youth. It shook the foundations of values and beliefs held dear by "grown-ups" in the 1950s. The new music, rock and roll surely influenced America at a time of social change, it touched on new topics that were not discussed or considered taboo. Rock and Roll gave teenagers the freedom to develop independent ideas from those of the older generation, and it allowed for conformity among members of the younger generation regardless of their color.
