How The Doors Changed Rock and Roll

How The Doors Changed Rock and Roll Rock and roll is a genre of music that has gone through many stages over the years. With new bands arising, rock and roll has begun to collect many different subgenres that are unique and interesting. Probably one of the most influential bands that changed rock and roll in the 60s and 70s is The Doors. Before The Doors, rock and roll was very much censored. Many pop rock bands were making fame such as The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and many more. These bands always had a certain look: those stylish haircuts, matching outfits, and girls that would go crazy over them. The craze for rock and roll really began to hit it off with the introduction of American Bandstand to the nation. This gave teens a chance to listen to music and enjoy the bands in a new way. Rock and roll was definitely more conservative in that time.With the introduction of The Doors, that all began to change. The Doors brought along with them the lifestyle of rock and roll that we all have come to know and love: pyschedelic rock. With the emergence of this new sound, many bands such as The Beach Boys and The Who began to get into this type of sound. The Beach Boys, for example, starting experimenting more with their music. The Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" is a great example of this. The Who, who started out as a sort of pop rock band began to start thinking of more experimental and pyschedelic tunes, such as the emergence of their rock opera album "Tommy" and the hit song "Baba O'Riley". All around the world, teenagers began to experiment with drugs, and sink slowly into the music.[read the rest]
