The 1960’s in America was, without a doubt, a time of change. Moral, political and social boundaries were being challenged at the time. The words, “groovy” and “counterculture,” were both terms to describe the sign of the times. It is no secret that the United States has always been somewhat behind the “curve” when it comes to progression in any of the aforementioned areas. The American counterculture generation was in its heyday of reformation, beginning in 60’s and people, from all demographics, were jumping on the bandwagon.

Pop culture and music have always been on the radar of any given generation.

From the beginning of time and throughout history, pop culture has been known to cause a stir with the general population. There are always those who resist change but, in the end, change takes place.

The Rolling Stones were a prime example of a pop culture phenomenon; change that was resisted by some but eventually, embraced.
