Why Rock Music Should Never Be Forgotten By Our Youngest Generation

Ever since I was young, all I can remember listening to while growing up was classic rock and all the great memories that came with it.

Why Rock Music Should Never Be Forgotten By Our Youngest Generation

Rock music has evolved so much over the years ever since the 50s and has become one of the most popular music genres. There are so many different types of rock music which makes it so versatile for everyone to listen to. Rock music has thousands of amazing artists and bands associated with the genre as well. Overall, rock is such a versatile genre that includes so many amazing songs, albums, and artists.

The Beginning Of Rock n’ Roll

Rock music has been around ever since the 1950s and has been evolving over the past 70 years. Chuck Berry, an iconic black rock n' roll artist was the first one to actually invent the genre of rock. Even though the music industry promoted white idols such as Elvis Presley, Berry didn't let that get to him and continued his passion to create music for everyone to listen to. Black rockers stopped recording in the later '50s and then the white rockers took over. Rock and roll was inherited by white singers, such as Presley, who often performed songs composed by unknown black musicians. As time passed in the music industry and the 1960s hit, rock music kept on getting more and more popular.

Formation Of Worldwide Success 

The formation of the Rolling Stones began in the '60s and the band was a sensation in London and went on to have some of the most successful songs and albums made in the era. More and more bands were being formed, such as Cream and Led Zeppelin who upped the ante when they started playing very loud blues music. Cream's lengthy solos and Led Zeppelin's fast riffs created the famously known genre, "hard rock". The Beatles were soon to be formed as well and were a band that went on to achieve worldwide success. Rock music as a major business was born.

Love For The Music

Rock music has such a long and amazing history to it which is a huge reason why it is still such a popular genre to this day. A huge reason why rock is so intriguing to so many people is that rock artists play their own instruments live which really captivates their audiences and inspires so many people to learn how to play their own instruments. Rock just never gets old as a genre and continues to motivate people to listen to it.

As different genres of music such as Hip Hop, and Pop continue to become more and more popular, I can only hope that rock n' roll continues to inspire many people, including myself, and stay popular forever.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
