From rock’s early origins in African American rhythm and blues to pop music’s domination of MTV and American Idol, this book traces the history of American popular music and its influence on civil rights, anti-war protests, art, dance, big business, and politics. Explore the evolution of American culture with a decade-by-decade look at folk, punk, disco, heavy metal, grunge, hip hop, and more, and examine the impact of increasingly sophisticated technology on the way music is shared. Back matter includes endnotes, a list of texts, CDs, DVDs, and Web sites with further information on the topic as well as a bibliography and an index.
