rock and roll was originated or created by black people but as it usual white people came and stole just like they will do to rap music or hip hop.
if u listen to rock and dont know its origins then ask bono, or some1 who knows wat am talkin abt.peace. or go to google and TYPE origin of rock and roll or is rock black music then come back to comment. pardon my english!

and if u wanna see similarities between rock n roll and rap check below
rock n roll. sex,drug,fastline,woman and money
rap. bang(sex)weed(drug) hoes and bitiches and the green(money)
rock n roll created or inveted by black people revolutionated by white people.
rock n roll.....
good example is wat we see now, eminem is in, so is bubba, vanilla ice, now paul wall. soon they will take over rap music just as they did to rock and roll and we gonna move to something different maybe pimpin some hard bitches or running under the water but the phony people always will take over whatever invetion we come out with.

To quote Bill Haley, who prety much invented rock, it is volatile mix of country and pop. At least, originally it was. It has its roots with black R&B dudes and folk singer type guys. Then white people started mixing it with country & pop (see above), and it started to become rock 'n' roll. Starting in the mid '50s, people such as Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Elvis Presely, and others created a whole new genre. In teh early '60s, surf bands like the Beach Boys and others started chaning it a bit. y the late '60s, it started to lose sight of its purpose. Hippies started transforming it from realtively short and fast songs into long, slow, boring songs about God-knows-what. By the '70s, bands like the Ramones starting to bring it back to its roots, only with a harder edge. Around this time, metal was created. Metal is hardly rock. Then it got pop-ified in the '80s, then it transformed into a bland, repetitive, boring commerical music in the '90s, finally being pashed out of mainstream society by metalheads and ganster rap people.
1. Lou Reed is a great writer. His song, Rock 'n' Roll, is a great song.
2. The Ramones saved rock.

music people think came from the british. it actually came from america in the 50's. Elvis Presley sings rock n roll not those british bands like ac/dc or black sabbath. americans created rock n roll style too (greasers)
brit: we created rock n roll because we have AC/DC

American: no, we created rock n roll because we have elvis presley, which was way before all those bands
