|In the beginning of
any cultural movement, society is often at odds with the dynamic of
change and fearful of the effects it will have. Rock and roll was no
different. The idea of an empowered youth culture that would question
their elders and the establishment created enormous tensions.
As the idea spreads and becomes a cultural force, this fear abates and rock and roll is seen as simply another musical genre. In today's era, the idea of rock music being something frightening is almost impossible to imagine.
