This paper compares the stars and music of today's rock-n-roll to the stars and music of yesterday's rock-n-roll. The paper points out that while early rock-n-roll music and its stars wrote and performed original music with social messages, today's rock-n-roll songs and performers are unoriginal and express no social consciousness.

From the Paper:

"As a way of setting the cultural stage for the process of comparing and contrasting newer musical groups with older rock groups - since music reflects culture in the same way literature does - it is worth taking a look to see if "The Times (have been) A-Changin," (or how much they have been changing) as Bob Dylan wrote in the Sixties. The times have changed from yesterday's consistently progressive, liberal, and into social change activities, to today's more "party-oriented" young people who espouse a more conservative brand of politics and enjoy music that tends toward the predictable and bland."
