Let me educate you.

Rock music was invented by black people. It was the merging of swing with the electric guitar. It was Chuck Berry and Little Richard and Bo Diddley.

The bastardized version of rock that was sold to white teenagers is called rockabilly, literally because it was “rock” marketed to white kids (“billy” being a common white name, or “billy coming from the word “hillbilly”). This is where you get Jerry Lee Lewis and Elivis Presley and Johnny Cash.

Some idiot in my inbox just said Buddy Holly invented rock music. Not only did Buddy Holly not innovate rock music, he didn’t even innovate the bastardized version of rock music.

I just love when people talk some shit like they know some shit when they don’t know shit.
