Typically, we don’t think that rock and roll has much to do with poststructuralism and the conceptual art of the 1960s and 70s. After all, rock and roll is a popular form, unburdened by the intellectual tendencies of philosophy and art history. Rock and roll operates in the marketplace, the critical reputations of artists and works rising or falling with sales figures.

But there’s no reason that a popular music, coming of age at the turn of the 1970s, had to take the form of rock and roll. If we look more deeply at the cultural and economic forces of this time period, it becomes plausible to suggest that rock and roll is one of a constellation of symptoms of deeper societal and intellectual transformations.
