Rock and roll is the simple name given to the musical/cultural/attitude movement that shaked the minds and the pants of thousand of youngsters all around the world. It all started during the early 50's and it all began with the influence of blues, country and r'n'b music. You can say that Chuck Berry invented it, but it is known that Elvis personified like no one else.

A forward, energetic, and electric form of rhythm & rhyme. To rock is to rouse, to roll is to ravish, and to ride the thunder is to raise up the soul.
