How did rock music originate?
skiffle. it was like rock 'n' roll in the early 50's. it was a little different because there were different instruments. in a skiffle band there would usually be an washboard, a banjo, harmonica's, guitars(same as today's rock), and drums(same as today's rock).
Elvis kicked it off.. is what they say.. I don't believe it..
& it wasn't the beatles either..
Elvis and the beatles.
