Historical Adventure of Rock and Roll

Anadolu University
Music is a sociological phenomenon. Almost all social events in the world history

have taken a form of music as a reference. Rock and Roll, which emerged in

1950s, has also undertaken such a mission. Rock and Roll has been an important

part of youth culture since 1951 when Alan Freed, a DJ making a radio program in

Cleveland, coined the term. The aim of this course is to explain the historical
