15. Depends on how you define "start."

First Rock and Roll song to have major commercial success. But not first in the genre, which goes back a few years before '56.

6. No Buddy Holly yet?

He left a legacy in the span of five years that most popular musicians couldn't equal in a lifetime.

In the way that Elvis and others brought the singing style of black r&b and gospel music to white listeners, Buddy Holly did it for the guitar.
