강좌 소개

This course, part 2 of a 2-course sequence, examines the history of rock, primarily as it unfolded in the United States, from the early 1970s to the early 1990s. This course covers the music of Led Zeppelin, the Allman Brothers, Carole King, Bob Marley, the Sex Pistols, Donna Summer, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Prince, Metallica, Run-DMC, and Nirvana, and many more artists, with an emphasis both on cultural context and on the music itself. We will also explore how developments in the music business and in technology helped shape the ways in which styles developed. Emerging out of the experimental and ambitious years of late-60s psychedelia, rock splintered into a variety of styles in the 1970s as the music business continued to expand. By the end of the decade, punk and disco had challenged the excesses of the hippie aesthetic, as rock became more commercially streamlined and radio friendly. The emergence and rise of MTV transformed pop music and propelled the careers of Michael jackson and Madonna, while heavy metal and hip hop dominated the late 1980s. Nirvana leads alt-rock's return to simplicity in the early 1990s....

Fascinating - really filled out my knowledge and understanding and introduced me to new music - despite having lived through much of the history. Enjoyed the laid back but informed videos.

Continuing from Part One, the History of Rock course segues into the music scene of 70s and beyond. A thoroughly enjoyable course for anyone interested in any form of music in general.

This course was interesting but not nearly so interesting as "History of Rock, Part One. This may have more to do with my age than anything else. I grew up in the '50s and '60s.

Again, I want to say that I would have learned more if we had been tested once a week, rather than every two weeks. Since the quizzes are so heavily peppered with song titles and dates, two weeks' worth of material is just too much to remember.

Another criticism is the text that comes with the videos. I like to read them while watching the videos, to kind of cement my learning. However, this course had really bad text with the videos! Many words were translated from voice, incorrectly. If I were deaf or English were not my first language, I would have a really hard time following the written text. Now that many years have passed, is there another rock or music history class coming up from John Covach? I hope so. Thank you for the interesting course..

I enjoyed it, but not so much as Part 1 which I really enjoyed. Presentation, difficulty, etc was all equally good, but what I found was it became more oriented toward various genres of the popular music of the times, not toward what I would personally consider "rock" music. What I had to confront was my own musical narrowmindedness (snobbishness?). I found it hard to maintain the pace and absorb the info when it got into disco, boy/girl bands, rap, hip hop, punk.... genres that I have never had interest in.

I enjoyed Part Two, but not nearly as much as Part One. This change is not due to the professor or the course material; both are excellent. It is the music itself. I simply do not enjoy most of disco and pop artists like Madonna, Janet Jackson, Brittney etc. I hope I do not sound snobbish (or sound like my parents), but mentioning the Beatles and former mousketeers in the same sentence or course is laughable.

I thought the course was fascinating and the professor kept the material interesting. Since for copyright reasons he couldn't play the music for the class, I just had spotify open and would pause the video occasionally to play the songs. My one complaint was that a lot of the test questions involve being able to remember which artist did which album; I found that really difficult.

excellent summary of the the period from the late 60s to the 90s. A course like this can never be comprehensive but there has been a lot of thoughtfulness in the sampling process as well as in drawing some threads for the student to mull over and make up his/her own mind.

El curso está muy bien, lástima sea todo en inglés. Lo que hago es abrir una nueva ventana con los subtitulos y traducidos automáticamente al español, de esta manera el ordenador me queda en 2 ventanas, el video y los subtitulos .

Very interesting as i t covered different genres and time periods well. Learned a lot about the types of music and found myself interested in listening to artists outside of my personal interests.

Similar to Part One, but continues with the history of rock into more recent times (1990s). Very short course compared to the other one. Pros and cons from Part One apply to Part Two.

Fun topic although having only a person talking can make the course tedious at times. Would be good if there was a Spotify playlist for the course.

Great information, but the instructor's delivery is offputting....he talks so fast, there's alot of inaudible words, etc.

Good course but too much focus on US and UK and too much on racial and gender issues - focus on the music

Focused too much on non-rock styles, such as disco, rap, etc., but en large, pretty nice course.

It is a good course. However it is not better than its antecessor Part One. In many ways it is very US centric, without very good analysis of the British counterparts. Some lessons are very superficial, not going in deep.
