MUS 0120 - A History of Rock and Roll Music: Attitudes, Culture, and Society


3 Credit Hours
Focus is on the genre of music that has been shaped by the attitudes, culture, and societal forces, which have pervaded North America and the United Kingdom since World War II. It will track the trends, styles, and development of a hybrid genre from its country and blues roots that survived the corporate and political repercussions of the 1950’s, became an expression and extension of the 1960’s cultural revolution, and prospered through the invention of music videos. Finally, the course will examine its cemented position as a foundational music style that has had enormous effects on the development of country, pop, punk, grunge, and rap music styles, while examining the technological and business sides of a style that has secured its place in Western popular culture.
