During the 1950s Elvis established himself as the “King of Rock and Roll” with his suggestively gyrating pelvis and in the 1960s it was The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who and other famous musicians who continued the genre as “pop” (Popular) music which saw the emergence of pop bands, boy bands and solo singers who also became famous musicians.
