This was actually the very first class I took my freshman year and I loved it. Professors lectures go really well with her slides, easy to take notes to. Tests are very straightforward. Generally just fun and laid back. ALSO I am selling the textbook!! email me @ moriarty61@gmail.com

The class overall is fun and the TAs are all passionate about different aspects of music. The midterm and final require a lot of memorization of dates, song titles, and artist names but its pretty easy to get an A with some effort, especially with the paper (where you get to choose the topic).

Fun class, but lots of material. You start rock 'n' roll history in the 1920's, learning about blues and country, and move forward all the way until the 90's ending with alternative. In between, you learn almost everything there is to learn about rock 'n' roll (or as much as is possible in 10 weeks). In terms of assignments, there are both weekly readings of ~30-40 pages (so buying the book is mandatory) and Spotify playlists of ~20 songs to listen to per week.

The midterm and final are basically memorization; the first section is listening to a 1-minute excerpt of a song and stating the name, artist, date, and 3 salient facts about it. The second section is a short answer portion based only on lectures. The third section is an essay, for which you cannot get full credit for unless you use information from the weekly readings. However, Dr. Replogle gives you the prompts ahead of time, and selects 2-3 to put on the exam. That means you can outline the prompts as a way to study and pick out which sections of the reading to cite, so the readings are really only mandatory to do on time for the quizzes in the first few discussions (which are also far too easy; I didn't read for one of them and still got full points by making stuff up).

The prompt for the paper is vague, but that means you can basically pick your topic. The TA's are all music fans who love reading about that kind of stuff, so as long as you make it interesting you'll be fine.

Overall, easy class with fun material and you get to learn a lot about music and artists such as the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Elvis, and basically anyone else who was famous in the 20th century rock scene.

Easy class. For the midterm and final, you have to memorize ~50 song titles, as well as the artist, year of recording, and three significant facts about each one. That was the hardest part. One 6 page paper at the end of the quarter, which was super easy to write (I just did it about my favorite band). If I didn't completely bomb the midterm, I would've gotten an A in the class. My TA was a homie and was incredibly helpful. Shoutout to Wade Dean Fulton, you tha man!

TAKE THIS CLASS ESPECIALLY WITH DR. REPLOGLE!!!!

Dr. Replogle is an awesome professor! I thoroughly enjoyed this class and took it for my Visual and Performing Arts GE. The way this class is graded is by these parameters (at least for my quarter):

35% Final Paper (10% thesis, 25% content)
25% Final
20% Midterm
20% Discussion (10% Participation, 10% Writing Prompts based off readings and lectures)

Near the end of the quarter, the professor also offers an E.C assignment that can boost your overall final grade in the class a total of 2% max depending on how well you do it.

In class, progessor Replogle would give an overview of the content and each week we are also responsible for a number of listenings and readings. These readings and listenings are VERY important as they are utilized on both midterm and final! The lectures themselves are also very important as the exams require you to recall IMPORTANT facts about each song (so you can't just B.S your way out of this).

It might sound somewhat overwhelming but the class is truely enjoyable. It really doesn't even feel like a class because the readings are easy, the songs are pretty fun to listen to (especially songs after the midterm!), and the professor is obviously very passionate about the History of Rock n' Roll! You grow to have an appreciation of music and see just how much gender, race, sexuality, technology, and a multitude of other factors transform music into what it is today especially in regards to Rock N' Roll.

Also, special shout out to Candance for being such an amazing T.A!!!! Definitely try to get her if you can.
