Examines the varied musical repertoires that are known collectively as rock, and considers those musical forms that influenced the early history of rock (blues, rhythm and blues, country) and those that have had an influence throughout its development (experimental electronics, classical jazz). Analyzes rock music as both a musical and a sociological phenomenon. Topics include rock aesthetics, musical sub-cultures, music and film, music and politics, the business of rock, and the impact of American/British rock on world musical cultures. Requires no previous experience or training in music.
