Fear of Rock

May 22, 1955: authorities in Bridgeport, Connecticut, cancelled a Fats Domino concert because of the dangers of “Rock and Roll.” This was one of many controversies and censorship efforts involving rock and roll in the early years. Similar rock and roll concert cancellations due to local officials’ fear of possible violence occurred in Boston, Atlanta, Newark and Asbury Park, New Jersey, and Burbank, California. See Elvis Presley’s first appearance on the Ed Sullivan television show (September 9, 1956) and controversies over the film Blackboard Jungle, which opened with Bill Haley’s Rock Around the Clock on the soundtrack (August 26, 1955). (see July 9)

(Mother in Law) Mother In Law
(Mother in Law) Mother In LawThe worst person I know
(Mother-in law, mother-in law)
(Mother-in law, mother-in law)
A she worries me, so
If she’d leave us alone
A we would have a happy home
Sent from down belowMother in Law Mother in Law

 

Satan should be her name
To me they’re bout the same
Every time I open my mouth
She steps in, tries to put me out
How could she stoop so low[Instrumental Interlude]I come home with my pay
She asks me what I made
She thinks her advice is the constitution
But if she would leave that would be the solution
And don’t come back no more

Mother in law
My……mother in law, ah
Oh yeah
