2. Youth culture was extremely important to rock and roll because the teenagers of the 50s had money to spend on leisure activities and luxury items. There was also an attempt by the families to return normalcy after the war, and families felt that music would help (at first that is). Also, Teens didn’t want to listen to the same music that their parent’s listened to; they wanted something all to themselves. And last, teenagers wanted to act out a social rebellion, and rock and roll was that answer. In the 1950s, families were extremely conservative. After the war, many families were left broken or tattered, and parents wanted to make their children happy. This was the time of the teenagers. They had their own language, dances, music, etc. Parents just wanted their children happy. The youth wanted to rebel, they felt that rock n roll/rhythm and blues was exotic, dangerous and sexual, and they liked it. They started liking it even more when their parents threw a fit over it. 8.
