Music in history





Music in HistoryMusic and other popular culture typically reflect what happened at different points in history. It can either support it, or go against what's happening.

Music in the Cold WarIn this particular case, popular culture was very much against the cold war. A lot of the music written during this time reflected the people's thoughts against sending more soldiers to fight.

Have some Billy Joel to explain what I don't cover!

To be honest, I couldn't find very much for these two years. Have a picture of Johnnie Ray!

Johnnie Ray is known as one of the major precursors of what would soon be rock and roll.

Some of the artists of this decade were: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Donovan, Stevie Wonder, The Beach Boys, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Creedance Clearwater, and The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

Rock 'n' Roll and R'B (Rhythm ' Blues) music during this decade was used to promote "Black" music. They wanted to bridge the gap between blacks and whites, and though they did not succeed completely, they did help to further the civil rights movement.

Here are some names you may recognize: Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Johnny Cash, and Ray Charles.

So many things happened during the 60s, it's hard to cover it all. After 1963, the music world all but blew up. There were so many new music styles, and the 'British Invasion', which was the new obsession with British artists.

This is how it went..


The music of the 70s created the perfect bridge from the rebelliousness of the 60s, to the happiness of the 80s. People were tired of the fighting, which drew them to dance clubs and relaxing music. Out of this want to relax emerged the disco movement.

Think...:Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince, Whitney Houston, The Beastie Boys, Billy Idol, Van Halen, Motley Crue, Guns n Roses, Skid Row, Metallica, Bon Jovi, Ozzy Osbourne, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Aerosmith, and Nirvana.

70s artists: Diana Ross, Pink Floyd, Queen, David Bowie, Blondie, The Ramones, Sex Pistol, The Misfits, The Jackson Five, and Chic.

Not much happened during this decade, sadly. Though it did usher in a whole new set of amazing artists for us to enjoy today and for years to come.
