From a young age, Dylan had an interest in music and was driven by several entertainment icons such as Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. This led him to dropout of college to focus full-time on what he loved to do most: creating music. As Dylan reached his 20s, he started to produce a wide collection of songs at a very fast pace. In fact, many of these songs written during this time are presented in the album, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan. Through the use of traditional music and meaningful lyrics, Dylan creates an album that exemplifies both protest and sorrow.
When they broke up in 1970, all four members followed their own solo careers. They continued to have numerous successes, both outside and inside the music industry, with solidarity acts or becoming a famous peace activist.

For over thirty years MTV has been at the center for youth programing in television. MTV lunched on August 1, 1981 as a somewhat struggling network and has grown into one of the most influential brands of the world. MTV, now known for producing reality television, was created to be a twenty-four hour, seven days a week music video channel.

They won the the Billboard Music Award for Top Rock Artists, and triumphed over three iHeart Radio Music Awards, and three MTV Music Awards. That’s a lot of
About two hours later, the Skeleton Clique (people of the Twenty One Pilots unofficial fanbase) dispersed as the concert came to a close, awestruck by what we had all witnessed. Between all the jumping and belting lyrics, I was completely exhausted, though still jittery from the adrenaline. I was left with the feeling of craving for more live performances by Twenty One Pilots, and hoped that I could go to more concerts in the future.

Rock music gave shape to many different counter-cultural movements which engulfed the world. Without Rock and Roll, many genres of music would never have emerged, such as: garage rock, pop rock, blues rock, and psychedelic rock. Although rock no longer rules popular music, the styles of the 1960’s still appeal to the ears of those born long after.

Next, they produced From Under the Cork Tree, Infinity on High, and the flop of Folie a Deux, before they went on hiatus just to come back three years later and create Save Rock and Roll. The most recent album they created was American Beauty/American Psycho, and they are in the process of making another one now. Fall Out Boy was one of the reasons Fueled by Ramen, an American record label that was struggling to get onto the music train, skyrocketed years later.
