Rock and roll began to emerge as a defined musical style in America in the late 1940s as a part of African American culture, when it was called Rhythm and blues, or RandB.

 Top moments in rock 'n' roll, from the first chords to a final stand - The Boston Globe
Rock music is a series of brilliant guitar riffs -- Keith Richards's snarling guitar in "Satisfaction," Kurt Cobain's stuttering chords in "Smells Like Teen Spirit," Ritchie Blackmore's ominous opening to "Smoke on the Water." But the first great one belonged to Ellas Otha Bates McDaniel -- better known as Bo Diddley.
It is a protest song turned personal, a raw, electric stream-of-consciousness poem that tackles truth and deception on a human scale and the transformation of a generation from the inside out.
In short, this was the punk-rock revolution -- and in a larger sense the very foundation of a rock 'n' roll rebellion -- at its most essential: potent, provocative, brutally honest, and brashly unafraid.
