Rock ‘n’ Roll genre

In its purest form, rock ‘n’ roll has three chords, a strong back beat and a catchy melody. Early rock ‘n’ roll songs drew from blues, R&B, country, pop, jazz and pop. This created a blues-based song structure that was fast, danceable and catchy.

The first wave of rock ‘n’ rollers were Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers and many more.
