Style: Rock : Rockabilly
Greatest Album |  Greatest Artists |  Greatest Tracks
Rockabilly was one of the earliest forms of rock & roll, and it has proved to be one of the most enduring. Where rock & rollers like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Fats Domino emphasized the blues, R&B, and pop roots of rock & roll, rockabilly was backwoods hillbilly music played to boogie beat. The form emerged in the mid-'50s and it stayed the same for the next four decades, with new performers occasionally adding contemporary flairs but essentially sticking to the basic rockabilly formula.
