The minority group emphasized the unconventional and irrational ideas of a generation which was read for change from society (Egendorf 24). Consequently, variety in opinions and styles introduced the separation that was crucial for the hippie identification. There are various identifiable figures for early rock and roll; but perhaps the most recognized as being the first legend of the rock and roll sound was Elvis Presley. Elvis was born in 1935 and grew up in the south in Tupelo, Mississippi (Egendorf 30). Elvis eventually migrated north and would go on to produce songs such as “That’s All Right, Mama,” which set up his influx into rock and roll history (Egendorf 38).
White teenagers practically ate it up in the post-World War II era. Altchuler quotes Mitch Miller, a talent scout for Columbia records as saying “young people might be protesting the Southern tradition of not having anything to do with colored people. There is a steady-and healthy-breaking down of color barriers in the United States; perhaps rhythm and blues rage…is another expression of it” (17). Miller believed white youth embracing R&B was a huge leap for racial harmony. By the mid-1950s, R&B began to gain major traction as the popularity of the radio began to surge.

As stated in Rock Music Styles written by Katherine Charlton, “Racial barriers slowly eroded when white teenagers began to listen and dance to the rhythm and blues of such jump bands as Louis Jordan and his Tympany Five in the late 40s” (Charlton 5). This marked the era for not only the beginning of racial integration, but youth rebellion as
Armed with a desire to change the world, young people took to song lyrics and innovative sounds to communicate their ideas on how the world and society should be shaped. As a result of the baby boom of the 1940s to the 1950s, over half of the population in the sixties was under 30 years old (“The Counterculture”). The youth was apparent all over the country, as the need to rebel against the conservative beliefs of adults ignited a willingness to challenge authority, increased social tolerance, changed attitudes about gender roles, and increased political interest, thereby creating the counterculture. As the decade progressed, tensions grew within American society that only seemed to attract more and more followers to the movement (Law). The American civil rights movement, for example, became a key element of counterculture and seemed to represent exactly what these young Americans stood for.
Modest Proposal – Technology Centered World Nowadays, society is bombarded by the ample use and dependency on electronics and social media to keep in touch with the people around them. Once upon a time, back in the days of the dinosaurs, the technology of the ‘telephone’ was the most impressive state-of-the-art technology, as it allowed them to communicate from a distance rather than actually speaking face to face; that took too much effort.
