The Beatles were one of the first artists to consider their albums more strongly, not thriving off of the success of key singles.10 Songs besides singles were not only filler, creating thematic songs that were consistently high quality, from beginning to end.11 Long before music videos’ popularity in the 1980s, The Beatles made full length films featuring their music, in essence being the first music videos. 12 They also pioneered the genre of Psychedelic Rock along with The Beach Boys, being some of the first to highly chart using guitar feedback and electronic effects within their music.13 It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of America’s young people began to play guitar and form bands from the influence of The Beatles, heightening the amount of garage rock bands forming in the US.14 “Beatlemania”, the term used to describe the intense fandom surrounding The Beatles, was clearly visible through their impact upon fashion.15 The hairstyle shared by each Beatle, the “mop-top”, was seen as messy and was often disdainfully looked upon by adults, yet it began to be widely imitated across youth.16 Their hair grew longer and longer, and other groups followed as longer hair became more socially accepted due to their influence.17 It is difficult to understand the extent to which The Beatles have affected us, transforming music, fashion, and culture in general.

Rock Genre Mutation When music from the 20th and 21st centuries comes to mind, many are immediately drawn to the genre of rock and roll. Rock and roll, which emerged in the 1950’s, was unlike any genre before it.

The story of life is quicker than the wink of an eye. This quote held truer for no one more than the man who said it. Jimi Hendrix waltzed into the music world and in just four short years, changed the face of rock-n-roll as we knew it. Hendrix became the 1960s zeitgeist for his ability to perfectly capture everything that made that era great- swagger and grit, primal sexuality and dreamy intoxication. Even though not everyone considers him an ideal role model, Jimi Hendrix is still considered as the greatest guitarist ever.
On August 27th, 1991 Pearl Jam released one of the greatest debut albums known, Ten. Starting from Washington like many other bands such as Nirvana, who played a huge role in the early 90’s, Pearl Jam truly broke the Seattle sound into the mainstream. These two bands were the development and origin of the Seattle sound, or what we know it as today: grunge. Many would believe that Nirvana’s Nevermind, would be the break and mainstream of grunge, but Pearl Jam’s Ten, kept them there. Pearl Jam has a truly unique musicality while containing the harsher sounds of the electric guitar and bass, but rather than speed, takes a slower tempo.
