From the big band music of the early 1950s through doo wop in the middle of the decade into the rockability of the late ’50s the mood was optimistic. The music was fast and the beat was swing, baby, swing. Crooners like Sinatra, Como and Patti Page slowly gave way to artists like Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and Bill Haley.

Teenagers weren’t “the kids” anymore. They had spare money and lots of energy so they bought records and danced. What they listened and danced to was rock & roll … 1955 spawned five titles considered by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to be among the 500 Most Influential – Ain’t That a Shame (Fats Domino), Earth Angel (The Penguins), Mannish Boy (Muddy Waters), Maybellene (Chuck Berry), and Rock Around the Clock (Bill Haley and the Comets).

Historians use the word “boom” to describe a lot of things about the 1950s: the booming economy, the booming suburbs and most of all the so-called “baby boom.” This boom began in 1946, when a record number of babies – 3.4 million – were born in the United States. About 4 million babies were born each year during the 1950s. In all, by the time the boom finally tapered off in 1964, there were almost 77 million “baby boomers.”
