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. The utopian frenzy of rock defined the music of that era, and to this day continues to structure the music we call Rock and Roll

Rock and Roll has been credited with the uprising of the “gap generation” who have very different values and beliefs than that of the parent generation. The parents actually opposed change and would’ve done anything to keep things the way they were, even if that means blocking certain music, movies, tv shows, actors, singers, and those who represent a shift in the media from media itself. Adults of the 1950’s insisted that Rock and Roll was corrupting and brainwashing the youth. As teenagers were given more opportunities in the decisions they were making for their own futures, they also thought they should have the opportunity to listen to whatever music they wanted to. With the evolution of rock and roll, teens started to embrace new freedoms they had now obtained.
Easily relatable songs with a groovy beat quickly took over the youth and just like that rock & roll made a huge impact on teenagers and their lives. Heavy drug usage and wild behaviour gave the rock & roll generation a bad name but it certainly influenced the youth culture in many ways we still fell to this day. The rebellious generation glorified “sex, drugs and rock & roll” but still took a stand against important political issues. During 1950’s rock & roll became a dividing and uniting force at the same time. Rock & roll set the parents, mass media and the government against teenagers.
He was brought up in a practicing Muslim family in Istanbul and grew as a practicing Muslim. When his father moved to Washington as an ambassador to the United States, Ertegun would fall in love with black music after seeing it performed by Duke Ellington’s band in London. He later joined the black music industry and found himself carried away by drugs, which made him engage himself, a lot in sex with women.

Drugs had such a big impact in society in the 1960’s because they reached out to more people than just the hippies at the time. One who was uneducated about the 1960’s would only think that the hippies use to drugs – nope! And that is the fascinating thing about it that drugs heavily influenced musician greats such as Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane and other influential people such as Ken Kesey and his magic bus disciples (I like to call them that). If you were to walk down the street in the 1960’s and waved at someone that very someone would have been lost in his own Wonderland and I absolutely believe that is how heavily spread and influential drugs were back then! The 1960’s wouldn’t have been the 60’s without the

“My fear now is of cliché, of complacency, of not being able to feel authenticity in myself and those around me” - John Hawkes The 1960’s were a time of multiple revolutions in this country. The culture explosion that came about in the 60’s was nothing short of utter enjoyment. This culture explosion gave headway into other revolutions such as feminism, the sexual revolution and even the coined term black power. The music that came out of this era allowed this country to develop in a somewhat unconventional but mostly the American way. Music in this era played an even more significant role in politics than it has ever had in histories past.
