ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK: THE DARK SIDE OF BILL HALEY

Although he might often get overlooked in the history of rock and roll today, Bill Haley did a lot to popularize the genre, and in many ways, you could argue that it was he who set the scene for the likes of the more ‘offensive’ performers such as Elvis Presley and Little Richard to inspire a generation. His 1954 record ‘(We’re Gonna) Rock Around the Clock’, remains one of the most iconic rock singles of all time.
