Also, just watch the visualization for a while and you’ll probably figure out the basics on your own.)

Inside Pop — The Rock Revolution is a CBS News special, broadcast in April 1967. The show was hosted by Leonard Bernstein and is probably one of the first examples of pop music being examined as a “serious” art form.
