A type of contemporary music that came out of blues, or more likely rhythm & blues (R&B). The addition of country & western music completed the formula that forwarded this "new" music to its own dimension.
Elvis & Jerry Lee Lewis are the best example of original Rock 'n'Roll while Little Richard & Fats Domino are good examples of where the music came from.

this can mean one of a number of things

1) (verb: to): to shag and fuck someone silly, to fuck their brains out i.e. to shag them until they can't pronounce their name, lol.

2) (noun): a new fad or trend engaged in by youths that adults don't seem to understand or even appreciate , since they can't grasp the essence of the said fad or trend.

3) (verb): to get involved with the wrong crowd, and as a result to drop out of high school/university, trade school and get involved in criminal activities.
father: son, what is this new ridiculous game you're playing, or seem to be playing, on your Game Boy, 24/7 these days? you know the one, with the little green character?

son: dad, lol! I love your description of modern technology; this game that I am playing on my Game Boy, is a new rock-n-roll. The game is called Zelda, just like the little green character you mentioned. Dad, you can be so funny sometimes. (son: after a pause) : Dad, be thankful, that im not the type of rotten apple modern son that likes to rock-n-roll after school, in order to become a self-made mobster. roflcopter

Music that started in the 1950's. Mix the blues or rhythm & blues with 2 or more of the following: country, swing, gospel, jazz, ummm... there's more but fuck it.

Basically any music with a good beat, soul, and a wild, raw feel to it. But it gotta be up-beat and have some blues in it. Whoever wrote that other definition is a fuckin' idiot.

P.S. "Hits" don't dictate what's good or bad. The people running the radio stations don't know shit.
Joe Turner - "Flip, Flop & Fly"
Chuck Berry - "Sweet Little Sixteen"
Jerry Lee Lewis - "Great Balls of Fire"
The Kingsmen (or Richard Berry) - "Louie Louie"
Ray Charles - "I Got a Woman"
Screamin' Jay Hawkins - "Little Demon"
Carl Perkins - "Honey Don't"
Elvis Presley - "Hound Dog"
The Ramones - "Rockaway Beach"
Trashmen - "Surfin' Bird"
The Cramps - "Mama Oo Pow Pow"
Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels - "Devil with the Blue Dress on"
Tommy James - "Hanky Panky"
Dion & the Belmonts - "Runaround Sue"
