Back in the 50s a DJ , named Alan Freed, coined a new term on the air to describe this new genre of Popular Music: Rock and Roll. Since that day the genre of Rock has expanded and is very inclusive in different styles.
I want to present here a few that were popular back when the term became into being. There are so many examples, and these are simply some of my favorites from those days of simplicity and innocence.
Please add some of yours and make this a really fun poll of nostalgia.

    I wasn't around when they came out, but I've always been a huge fan of the oldies:)

    lol I have 3 different types of record players/stereos, over 200 45 rpm records and lots of 33-1/3 lp. Wasn't into the music scene until the 70's but because of call in requests on the radio I had favorites and started collecting them! Rock and Roll is my favorite!!!

    I was the music director on an FM in the 80s. One of my favorite jobs, actually, Rebel. Thanks for coming and commenting.

    Thankfully, I was a little young for most of those. I remember some in retrospect, however.

    I was in elementary school when the first group I began to notice and like: The Beach Boys. Now, my dad always used to sing me, "Wake up, Little Susie," by the Everly Brothers, but that was because of my name. I don't remember actually hearing it on the radio until it was considered "old" stuff. I thought it was the Statler Brothers but found I got that wrong, so you can tell I'm not quite a tough old bird, yet.

    I did see the Beatles when they appeared on Ed Sullivan, but only because my big brother made me watch it. I know I didn't realize I was watching history in the making.

    The 'Old Days' of rock and roll would be defined as the late '50's era, when Elvis was shaking his hips, and Sun Records was looking for white kids who could sound black. Most of the tunes were written by hack songwriters in the Brill Bldg in Manhattan. Those black artists who did compose their own music were often cheated out of their royalties

    The Beatles ( with a little help from their friends ) turned the entire Top 40 industry on its head, by composing and playing their own music, and transforming it from finger-poppin' two-minute jukebox ditties into Album Rock and FM radio

    Thanks ~~ you, and all the contributors here on this page ~~ for bringing back some wonderful nostalgic memories..
