The Birth Of Rock'n'Roll and Rockabilly 

At least when Bill Haley & His Comets came up with 'Rock Around The Clock' Rock and Roll had arrived. Haley became the first boss of Rock and took the worldwide music charts by storm in 1954. Completely destroyed concert halls and ballrooms was the result of a rebellious youth against the adult establishment in the 1950s. They didn't want to hear no more wartime stories nor watch Elvis on TV filmed only from the waist up – they wanted the whole Elvis Presley with all his wonderful sexual moves on stage and TV. Rock and Roll arrived and shook the world and shocked the elderlies. But what the hell is the difference? Adults had set the world on fire during WWII and how come that those same adults declared Elvis as sexually vulgar?!

Youth in the 1950s

The youth already had its own teen jive talk but the arrival of Elvis, Bill and Gene Vincent among others became all of a sudden their musical megaphone even that adults won't understand. How could they understand the meaning of 'A wop bop a loo bop a lop bam boom' and 'Be bop a lula'?!

When black and white started coming together for a colorful world

The 1950s was a rebellious period. Disc jockey Alan Freed was the first to play records by black and white artists together in his radio shows and later in his famous live jamborees at the Paramount Theatre in New York City. The culture of music with heads like Freed was the first in place tearing down racial barriers! Since then classic Rock and Roll is a timeless music and we say it in the words of Danny & The Juniors' famous hit: 'Rock And Roll Is Here To Stay'!
