Rock 'n' roll has come a long, long way. From the black-and-white days of Chuck Berry in the '50s to the pop-rock fusion millennials listen to, we can certainly say this genre of music dominated by banging drum lines and melodic guitar riffs has a rich history behind it.
But going on a full historical study of rock 'n' roll's journey can be tedious, not to mention boring if we go with text-fueled research.
