Rock Around the Clock: The Record that Started the Rock Revolution!
Jim DawsonISBN: 087930829X;
Book DescriptionThe beginning of rock and roll as a phenomenon was July 9, 1955, when "Rock Around the Clock" climbed to the pinnacle of the American pop charts to herald the arrival of the youth culture that eventually conquered the world. Rock Around the Clock is the inside story of the beginning of modern youth culture in the early 1950s, culminating in Bill Haley and His Comets' "Rock Around the Clock" ? the first rock and roll hit and one of the biggest-selling singles of all time ?and its explosive role in Blackboard Jungle, one of Hollywood's first films to deal with postwar youth culture gone wrong. The combination of uninhibited music and cinematic juvenile delinquency inextricably connected rock and roll with teenage rebellion in the public mind. The record also led to the making of Rock Around the Clock, the first rock and roll movie.
