These are the Best Rock Songs for Weddings to get people on the dance floor. Rock and Roll was born from a faster paced rhythm and blues style music in the late 40’s. The guitars produced by Les Paul in the late 40’s and into the early 50’s also helped progress the producing of rock’n’roll music production. The first rock and roll staged performance did not take place until 1953 featuring Bill Haley & His Comets with The Dominoes. Rock Around the Clock performed by Bill Haley & His Comets became the first rock and roll song to top the pop charts in 1955. Other early producers of rock’n’roll included Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, and Fats Domino.
