RSN All-Time Top 1000
List created by Gabriel Thy

The beautiful baby boy from Fort Lauderdale is still chewing on his placenta, but he is already rocking, and I'm not speaking metaphorically. Nope, those tiny red hands and feet and head are reeling and a rockin' back and forth in the crazy crying rhymes and rhythms of what already is the historic roll & rock age.

This hardly exhaustive list scans the Radio Scenewash Network's Top 1000 of All-Time, tracing the post-war inventive period which drives popular music deeper into the mashing of older black rhythm & blues music and musicians, merging with a sudden wave of young white performer, electric guitars, fast cars, the race to outer space, atomic monsters in the night, Jackson Pollock's drip paintings, and smashing young girls combining to launch the rock era of Elvis and the Beatles as well as the folk era of Bob Dylan, the advent of metal rock with Jimi Hendrix, and onto the wonders of six decades, all natural inheritors of the wind the rhythm and blues masters had left them.
