What was the relationship between working-class youths and popular music between the years 1955-1976? Drawing on archival sources and oral testimony, Keith Gildart examines the ways in which popular music played an important role in reflecting and shaping social identities and working-class cultures and - through a focus on rock 'n' roll, rhythm and blues, punk, the mod subculture, and the many worlds of glam rock - created a sense of crisis in English society.

Complemented by a critical reading of the songs, performances and impact of influential and emblematic musicians including Georgie Fame, The Beatles, Pete Townshend, Ray Davies, David Bowie and the Sex Pistols, Gildart brings together an investigation of particular localities, scenes, genres and individual and collective experiences and forms a critique of recent revisionist histories of popular music and youth culture.
