Thread Name: What is Rock 'n Roll???
Subject: RE: What is Rock 'n Roll???
Everyone has a slightly different opinion about what constitutes the Rock 'n' Roll Era, but many date it from the release of "Rock Around the Clock" in 1954.

It probably ended the night the Beatles first played on the Ed Sullivan Show.

Not every artist with a hit record during that time played RR.

Nor was every song by a Rock 'n' Roller was RR.
