About This Quiz
The 1950s were marked by the beginning of Rock and Roll which incorporated many aspects of other genres of music and dominated the mid to later parts of the decade. It was only the continuation of big band swing, jazz and the evolution of rhythm and blues, country music and pop, which dominated the charts for the first half of the decade. Folk and calypso music also saw an increase in popularity but not to the extent of the other genres.
Some of the most popular songs of the decade include "Great Balls of Fire" by Jerry Lee Lewis, "Jailhouse Rock" by Elvis Presley, "Tutti Frutti" by Little Richard, "How High the Moon" by Les Paul and Mary Ford and "Wake Up Little Susie" by The Everly Brothers. Some of the other popular artists include Johnny Cash, Nat King Cole, Perry Como, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra.
