What is rock n roll? Scandal, statement, style, it has shocked parents, terrified governments and changed the political consciousness of nations. It created the teenager and soundtracked rebellions. Societies sprang up in alarm to check its subversive influence on the young of Britain and America.
Rock groups flowered across two continents to add a backing track to a newfound freedom of lifestyle It informed a sexual revolution and condemned wars. It was peace and love: experimentation, nonconformity, individuality, protest. It was sex, drugs and booze. Straight-edge manuals for narcotic-free living.
Through all of what has been and what it is, rock n roll is this: feared by the authorities and adored by the masses. The most politically charged and influential art form in the modern world.
