Three song's title, "Rock and Roll" were recorded in the late 1940's. It the sound that was used in these songs that later gave the definition to "Rock 'n' Roll" music Legendary disc jockey Alan Freed (aka "Moondog") is credited with coining the term "rock & roll."
rock n' roll was one of the many synonyms for sex in the 1940's
