History of Rock Music

The history of rock music isn't cut and dry. Many individuals debate who the first rock singer was and what the first rock song was. However, it is known that the history of rock music comes from the old R&B mixed with some country and western and fused with a little rockabilly.

The exact time period that the history or rock music started in is not known. There were rock and roll elements showing up in blues songs and old country western songs as far back as the 20's and 30's. By the 1950's the history or rock music had begun.

The phrase rock and roll used to have a sexual connotation attached to it. The phrase sometimes contained to two meanings. It appeared to mean dancing but was also associated with sex. It was first used in the title of Trixi Smith's 1920's song, “My baby rocks me with one steady roll.” However, it was Alan Freed a disc jockey from Ohio that first came up with the phrase rock and roll in 1955. With that, the history of rock music was well under way.

Classic Rock Music

Classic rock music will always be around. It is music that has withstood the tests of time. Although we will always love the way these songs were sung by their original artists, it is also fun to hear them revamped by our favorite modern artists. Below is a list of some of the popular cover songs made possible by classic rock music.

Covering classic rock music means that you can cross this music over to any genre you want. This can be seen with the Stevie Nicks song “Landslide”. This song was taken by the Dixie Chics and transitioned well into their country/pop genre.

Dwight Yoakam was also successful in converting classic rock music into country. In 1999 he did this with the song “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”. This song was originally performed by Queen in 1979. Both versions are popular and hold their own followings.

Rock and roll (often written as rock & roll or rock 'n' roll) is a genre of popular music that originated and evolved in the United States during the late 1940s and early 1950s,primarily from a combination of the blues, country music, 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.An early form of rock and roll was rockabilly, which combined country and jazz with influences from traditional Appalachian folk music and gospel.

The term "rock and roll" now has at least two different meanings, both in common usage. The American Heritage Dictionary and the Merriam-Webster Dictionary both define rock and roll as synonymous with rock music. Encyclopaedia Britannica, on the other hand, regards it as the music that originated in the mid-1950s and later evolved "into the more encompassing international style known as rock music." For the purpose of differentiation, this article uses the latter definition, while the broader musical genre is discussed in the rock music article.
