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.
