“You’re welcome, you stupid moron.” -Chuck Berry


ninergang82

Exactly this. Chuck Berry and Little Richard are who invented rock and roll music. This imecile probably thinks Elvis Presley did. Also, clearly he's never listened to Prince.


Fantastic-Sandwich80

Elvis would be the first one to correct these fools about "Colored folk" and the history of rock and roll music. “A lot of people seem to think I started this business, but rock ‘n’ roll was here a long time before I came along,” Elvis told Jet‘s Louie Robinson. “Nobody can sing that kind of music like colored people. Let’s face it: I can’t sing it like Fats Domino can. I know that. But I always liked that kind of music. I used to go to the colored churches when I was a kid – like Rev. Brewster’s church (Rev. W. Herbert Brewster of East Trigg Ave. Baptist Church in Memphis).” -Elvis Presley


The_Real_dubbedbass

Why would he get credit for something Marty McFly did?!?


wizardshawn

Excuse me. Did someone paint an egg to look like a fat guy? Cause they did a good job.


dbx99

It has a literal neck beard. And his neck is wider than his cranium. The fuck did this man do to his body?


Wade_boggs_65th_beer

You've gotta assume he tried different angles and probably had other pics to choose from, but dude said " nah, imma go with the unshaven up angle in the passenger seat of this truck"


YouJabroni44

He regularly goes to potlucks and eats everything there.

I’m pretty sure they stopped letting him attend them after the first one

Petrolinmyviens

Oh God my sides hurt. Lol!


lowfreq33

Bad Brains anyone?


Degenerate_Merc

Chuck Berry, aka the father of rock n roll.


Careless_Mushroom470

Exactly who was very influential on Jimi Hendrix


Positive_Note4986

You meant to say he was influential to 90% of rock musicians that came after him, directly or indirectly.


Careless_Mushroom470

Yeah, but especially Jimi Hendrix who set the bar even higher for guitar players, who he himself influenced such masters as Santana, David Gilmour, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Slash, just to name a few.


OnionPsychological52

Did you say Stevie Ray Vaughan? Jimi and Vaughan are my two favorite guitarists….ever.


gregr0d

Have you seen SRV version of 3rd stone from the sun live at the El Mocambo?!?


asininemoralplatitud

Chuck Fucking Berry! Little Fucking Richard! Ike Fucking Turner! Louis Fucking Jordan! If you like guitar based popular music with a backbeat every band that you like is at most 3 degrees of separation from artists like this.


DiscussionLoose8390

Jackie Wilson "The Black King of Rock n' Roll".


TheSouthernMudd

Fucking love the Jackie Wilson reference! Hell yeah! 🤘🏼


BoxingHare

Came to add his name. And let’s not forget Little Richard either.


Eldritch_Librarian

Chuck Berry was named by John Lennon as the inspiration behind The Beatles.


360Entertainment

Years after the Beatles Split John got a chance to do a televised performance with Chuck. That moment is mostly remembered for Yoko Ono’s impression of a chimpanzee in heat!


smilingasIsay

You ever hear the Bill Burr rant about that? lol it's beautiful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4K07Kz7M8Q


Eldritch_Librarian

I need to look that up. Chuck and John as a duet must have been awesome. Also curious about that Yoko description.


360Entertainment

It was something else snd the video was pretty hilarious, just a little short!


Eldritch_Librarian

Chuck’s face says it all.

Loving the “far sighted sound engineer” comment!


Chief-Bromden86

Watched a documentary about the Beatles and stones taking inspiration from him and others, then Richards was jamming with Berry, it was cool as f”@&$!!!


Eldritch_Librarian

That sounds awesome. Didn’t know the stones took inspiration from him, but I’m not surprised.


TigerHeart1985

Also Little Richard.


Chief-Bromden86

Fuck yes my my friend!


keenkamerawerks

Living Colour also.... Edit: Spelling


lowfreq33

Body Count.


Hmmmm_Interesting

I saw body count and living color and FISHBONE at riotfest in Chicago this year!


lowfreq33

I saw Fishbone probably a dozen times back in the day. This one time Angelo was standing on two people’s shoulders, and holding on to my hand to balance. His pants fell down, and apparently he was going commando that day. But he couldn’t let go to pull them up, he was in the middle of a song. Dude finished the whole song with his dick hanging in my face. That’s commitment.


Parnwig

I'm glad I know you all are talking about bands


keenkamerawerks

Totally forgot about Body Count and I’ve seen them🤦 Edit: Fishbone


cutthroatlemming

I saw Fishbone in 1989!

Rage Against the Fucking Machine


Surfaceplant

My immediate thought was Tom Morello.


floridawastoomuch

We had to do a project in typing class in middle school and write a letter to a celebrity or politician. I was an overachiever so I think I chose my local state representative or something, and one of my friends chose Tom Morello. He asked some banal, vanilla questions about song writing and like one question about a comment he made about US involvement in Chile or something. Neither of us got a timely response, and we both forgot about it. Like 18 months later, he got a double sided, three page handwritten letter back from Tom explaining everything from a 10,000 ft view about the situation and his beliefs about it. Like, holy shit, he took the time to *hand write* a 6 page response to a literal fucking child about a complex geopolitical issue while on tour. If that's not punk I don't know what is.


VerySatan99

I know Bush is touchy subject, but I was a kid when this happened, so you'll have to give me a pass. In 2nd grade, we read a book called 'Flat Stanley'. Our teacher had us make them and give them to someone, alongside a blank Stanley for the person to give back to us. Most of the kids just gave theirs to their parents, but one kid sent his to his aunt in Puerto Rico, which inspired me. I sent mine to the at-the-time president of the U.S, George Bush. Someone there actually took the time out to fucking color and send me one back, alongside pictures of Bush and his family, and a handwritten letter from Bush's perspective.


garbanzoobeaned

Doesn't the white house have actual people do this for a job tho? I heard if you send the WH a wedding invitation or birth announcement they will reply with a congratulatory card or letter with pictures etc. So almost like they will reply to everything, except threatening letters. They might send someone else for that.


VerySatan99

Probably, but it was still pretty cool to my kid brain.


garbanzoobeaned

Oh don't get me wrong, overall it is still an awesome thing to do, especially making kids happy with the gesture. I was surprised not many know this in the past. Wonder if they still do it?


BjornBeetleBorg

I believe he tweeted about this lol


The_Chorizo_Bandit

This guy looks more like Rage against the fucking salad.


floridawastoomuch

Rage against my A1C.


GemaRastem

I'm upset with how far I had to scroll down for this comment


Degenerate_Merc

The fucking machine? Hmmm. /s


_DrinkatQuarks_

POCs have always been a part of the actual Punk scene. Bad Brains? Pat Shmear from The Germs? There’s so many examples… Edit: so many good examples listed below. On top of this, he also says white males so let’s not leave out all the women and lgbtqia+ people that MADE punk. Poly Styrene, Kira from Black Flag, Exene, Alice Bag, Blondie, Bikini Kill, L7, The Pretenders, Jayne Fuckin Country, Against Me, The Germs and so many others contributed so much to the punk scene.


kicked-in-the-gonads

Poly Styrene, anyone?


JosephMeach

Also Death, from the Detroit scene that predated the Ramones. And Chuck Berry liked the Ramones because he said it was similar to what they were trying to do back in the day, Currently, Big Joanie. Hell, Lenny Kravitz won a Grammy every year for a while.


GardenGnomeOfDoom

Death was amazing. Way ahead of their time. All black. All punk.


Shorsey69Chirps

Tom Morello? Vernon Reid? Jimi Hendrix? Phil Lynott? Prince? Sly Stone? Doug Pinnick? Tosin Abasi? Larry Graham? Victor Wooten? Tony MacAlpine? Nile Rodgers? Pat Smear? Gary Fucking Clarke Jr? Slash? I’d smack this cracker with some reality.


BullDogg666

Yes!!!!

On the metal side we have Howard Jones and Alexis Brown, both phenomenal talents!


ToriiLink

Not to mention all the basic building blocks of rock in any form was built by the black community at the turn of the century.


whenIwasasailor

They didn’t just lay the foundation— they built the first floor. Chuck Berry, Little Richard, etc.


aFiachra

Rocky George of Suicidal Tendencies, Cro Mags, Infectious Grooves. Fishbone Living Color Vernon Reid started the black rock coalition to fight dumb shit like this — and that was in 1985.

30+ years later, and I am still floored at how amazing this song is.


SnowbackMcGee

And how prescient the lyrics are. They basically nailed the Trump presidency 30 years early. Open Letter to a Landlord is also amazing.


TheSullivanLine

Saw them at Riot Fest last weekend - they still bring it!


ScottdaDM

My first thought was *laughs in Living Color* One of the most underrated guitarists in rock.


tengukaze

The opening to that song is the shit I mean the whole song is good but something about the intro gives me goosebumps


CeeArthur

That gullet... I imagine him swallowing bags of Doritos whole like a pelican.


bjeebus

I was thinking something more like [this](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lvGCF-K8SiQ).


2wedfgdfgfgfg

Lenny Kravitz, Chuck Berry, Prince. The genesis of rock is from African American blues.


keenkamerawerks

The Genesis of rock is Phil Collins! But seriously you’re absolutely correct Edit: Thanks for the assist on that one.


NaClslug

Meh. Better when it was Peter Gabriel.


SnooRobots1533

No reply at all


AsAGayGuy

Little Richard, etc. Elvis literally stole Hound Dog word for word from Big Mama Thornton with no credit. This tweet reeks of ignorance.


TheYankunian

Sister Rosetta Tharpe. One of the best rock guitarists of all time.


TheyCallMeTim13

Even the term "rock n roll" was first used in blues as a euphemism for sex.


vieuxfort73

If Robert Johnson hadn’t sold his soul at the crossroads…


Existential_Spices

Funkadelic, The Parliaments. The Rolling Stones and AC/DC were disciples of Chuck Berry. Many rock bands aped the styles of Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Lead Belly etc... Hell, even OG Hank Williams got influences from black musicians.


thatguyruss

Hank Sr covered Leadbelly a lot in his live performances.


asininemoralplatitud

Too bad his son is talentless hack and his grandson is a fucking tweak weasel who lacks the creativity to write music that doesn’t pander to fucking racist losers.


DaveTheBraveEh

And James Brown, and Little Richard, and Carlos Santana, and many more old & white brain can't think of right now!

Laughing_Orange

Elvis Presley was seen as controversial for making "black" music.


thatguyruss

He did take everything he did from Miss Rosetta Tharpe after all. And his dances came from Cab Callaway.


acuet

For real, they just found out about Sister Rosetta Tharpe


NateJizz21

no his dances came from Forest Gump


fakemidnight

Don’t you mean appropriating black music


Laughing_Orange

No, back then the focus was on white people being superior (not true, we are equal), and old people believed he was ruining music by bringing "black" music into white lives. I personally don't believe in cultural appropriation. If a non-white person wants to do cross-country skiing while wearing a nice woolen sweater that's great, but they'll have to accept that I have a couple of rap songs in my playlist. Mixing cultures is one of the most beautiful things us humans can do.


beelzybubby

Are we sure this isn't a troll? I can see someone making this in response to the growing popularity and acceptance of white rappers.


tonypiv

I think this is the correct take. More on the "cultural appropriation" side of things tho. While misguided and incorrect i think thats the tone of the post.


acuet

We just going to ignore Sister Rosetta Tharpe (Not Elvis)? FISHBONE!?!?


michaelvares

Black people literally invented rock music. Racists are just the dumbest MFers.


StyreneAddict1965

Ragtime. Rock. Blues. Jazz. Folk. Country. Stupid is a prerequisite for racism.


Moon_Dog_420427

It pretty much all originated from the blues. The lead singer from Pantera used to say"If we weren't a heavy metal band we would be playing the blues."


Parnwig

I'll be honest, I'm impressed he's not talking about country music. Worldview shattered Edit: for clarity, this may be the dumbest opinion I've seen someone have


InisElga

Phil Lynott from Thin Lizzy would beg to differ…

muneutrino

[Where does he think rock music came from](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_and_roll)


dayron669

Black folk literally created the blues and rock music. You like Led Zeppelin? Well, thank Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon and a slew of others. Elvis? Discovered in a recording studio while recording a Christmas song for his mom. The studio staff? Thought he was black, realized he was white, and then realized they were about to make a lot of money. Rock history is filled with these stories.


Raymando82

Didn’t Rock derive from the Blues which is culturally African American. Which as a metal head and punk rocker as well as ginormous Led Zeppelin fan my true thanks for all of that goes to artists like Robert Johnson. Edit: For those who don’t know who that is please look him up and listen to his music.


motownmods

Hendrix too but chuck berry was a pioneer of rock/guitar music. And then there are contemporaries like the guitarist from animals as leaders and oh ya Tom fucking morello. Even for racists this is fucking thumb I mean dumb I mean he looks like a thumb.

Led Zeppelin called themselves a heavy blues band. MANY of their songs were adaptations of old, original blues from the masters from the deep south. Robert Johnson, for example.
