All this is rock’n’roll! Around the world celebrate the day of rock’n’roll

Today, April 13, around the world celebrate the day of rock’n’roll – a holiday of like-minded people, for whom this genre has become not only music, but also a style of life.

Despite the fact that rock’n’roll day is annually celebrated on April 13, the historical event that served as the basis for the holiday happened the day before. On April 12, 1954, American musician Bill Haley recorded with his band The Comets the song Rock Around The Clock, which was later called by musical critics as the starting point for a mature, formed rock and roll. However, at the time when the song just arrived, the term “rock’n’roll” was not yet universally recognized, so Rock Around the Clock was labeled as a foxtrot on the record. The composition quickly gained popularity among the youth, which, following the musicians, sang:

“We’re gonna rock, rock, rock, ’till broad daylight,
We’re gonna rock around the clock tonight … “

The very same rock ‘n’ roll was born even earlier. The musical direction of the late 1940s and early 1950s arose in the south of the US as a result of the continued cultural interaction between the black and light-skinned population. The new musical style did not have a proper name for a long time. He was identified with rhythm and blues and stubbornly did not recognize as interracial music, attributing the genre exclusively to the black population of the country.

The term for the designation of a new style was borrowed from the vocabulary of seafarers, which by the words “rock” and “roll” denoted the rocking and rolling motion of the ship when entering the sea. After this, the phrase has undergone a number of transformations and, finally, has acquired its final form.

In 1986, at the first meeting of the organizing committee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the United States, ten founding fathers of this musical direction were named. These include Chuck Berry, James Brown, Ray Charles, Fats Domino, The Everly Brothers, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Sam Cook, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley.
