Rock music is a combination of many types of music.Mississippi delta blues,southern gospel,country & bluegrass.I think rocks' roots are mainly from blues and southern gospel.It took
the English invasion for most Americans to appreciate the blues.Sad to say but true-this was because of the evils of racism.My point? There is nothing new under the sun and music is a matter of personal taste.Ilove the clash & John Lee Hooker, both are great.As for polka i can't explain.No offence to polka lovers.
