    This was the decade which brought rock and roll as well as music to the home masses with its distinctive sounds being completely different to anything that went before. This decade led to the youth of the time becoming rebels and it even dragged older, more traditional genres of music right up into the modern era.

    However, some of the older styles did not vanish, but they merely adapted and evolved to take on a new direction to appeal to the current generation and preferences.
