Leave it a-hole Allmusic critics (who are just angry beasuce they had to be critics instead of rock stars) to mislabel an entire generation of music with a derogatory label that makes them feel like somebody. Most of these developed and mixed jazz, blues, rock, and beatlesque pop into a new art form. Grow up already Allmusic critics, beasuce it was mostly blue collar who loved and bought this music, not owners!
