In Working Class Heroes, David Simonelli explores the influence of rock and roll on British society in the 1960s and 70s. At a time when social distinctions were becoming harder to measure, rock musicians appeared to embody the mythical qualities of the idealized working class by perpetuating the image of rebellious, irreverent, and authentic musicians. In the process, these images helped change the way people looked at the concept of class in the mid-twentieth century and beyond [Publisher description].
