Rock and roll changed American society. The music helped foster the civil rights movement, encouraged electronics companies to invest in new technologies and brought social relevance to popular music. Today's music owes its beat, message and popularity to Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry and other performers who first rocked more than fifty years ago.
