Here’s your backstage pass to the history of rock and roll.

Thomas Larson’s History of Rock & Roll connects music and the culture in which it interacted. 

Designed for the college non-music major, History of Rock & Roll fuses a text, website, and online music library to cover the music’s story of controversy, tragedy, and self-indulgence; and also of love, peace, and the triumph of the human spirit.,

To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students in the information world, History of Rock & Roll:

  • Details the most important rock styles, how they evolved, and their important artists, as well as a listing of key recordings in each. 
  • Contains biographical information on recording artists, composers, producers, DJs, record executives, and other figures.
  • Includes access to an accompanying website with interactive activities, listening guides, audio/video links, test banks, and full course management software to assess comprehension.
  • Includes a four-month subscription to Napster, an online music service that provides students with unlimited access to the music identified in the book and listened to in class. 
  • Features new and expanded content throughout – especially The Eighties, The Nineties and Beyond.
