The 1950s was a conservative decade until Elvis Presley popularized a new genre of music, rock n’ roll, with his gyrating hips and youthful energy, he managed to change an old-fashioned society to a “new” and free one. The type of music that Elvis Presley was exposed to as a child shaped the type of music he would grow up to sing as an adult.

Music was a way most teenagers found an outlet. Rock n’ roll first arrived on the music scene as race music and it wasn’t until teenagers started requesting radio stations to play it that it started to become more widely popular. By accepting this music, Americans were opening themselves to a whole new culture of things that would soon come to influence the nation. Elvis got the ball rolling by allowing America a slow transition into being more accepting. He was a white man singing what was considered race music.
They are really significant due to having a big influence in the early teen dance shows of American Culture. American Bandstand was all about dancing to rock and roll music. It eventually started a whole new dance craze, since it developed new dance moves such as the fly and the fish. This ignited the teen marketing, because it brought all the things of rock and roll together, it attracted many audiences when they came back from school, and it also made rock and roll more acceptable to adults. Over all, Bandstand established rock and roll within the American Culture.

In the episode “Boyz 4 Now” Tina goes to a boy band’s concert and unlike Louise, she wholly enjoys her time there. Tina has no problem expressing her enthusiasm for the artists and she connects with the fellow fan girls, understanding where they come from with their frantic enthusiasm. Tina’s budding sexuality is surprisingly explicit, given the way she writes “erotic friend fiction” (stories about her kissing Jimmy Jr., her crush throughout the show). Teenage girls do not usually take on the active role of a pursuer in media texts, as the awkward sexual awakening is left for fumbling teenage boys, Tina being an exception to this. Tina and Jimmy Jr.’s roles are almost reverse when it comes to their relationship, or the start of it; Tina is the one going after Jimmy Jr., while he is more interested in dancing and hanging out with his friends.
Since the late 1980’s the music industry has seen a development in the phenomena of pop vocal all male groups referred to as ‘boy bands’. These so-called boy bands have proven to be quite the craze for young teenage girls who invest their time creating loyal followings (fan bases) for them by promoting their albums, making signs and waiting in lines for hours just to see them in concert. Each generation has their fair share of successful boy bands. For me, it was *Nsync and for my sister ,it’s One Direction. There hasn’t been a single car journey that passes by without listening to both bands followed by the both of us arguing about which one is better.

Hippies, who were “the youth culture of the 60s that transformed life in the West as we knew it, introducing a spirit of freedom, of hope, of happiness, of change and of revolution” (Miles), opposed Kennedy’s view in promoting a “typical” family dinner. These young minds did not despise of the tight-bond at these family dinners, however, they did not see eye-to-eye with the foods Americans were consuming.
