It was on this date (February 24) in 1956 when Cleveland Police inacted a bylaw that banned teenagers from dancing at a Rock and Roll Show.  (this act was used as the basis for the movie Footloose many years later) 

The public and police were concerned about the Devil Music and the affect on young people.  This makes you assume that our previous generation was quaint but I have to think, I can now agree. 

If anyone watched the Grammy Award ceremony a couple of weeks ago, and saw some of the songs (particularly that horrible number done by Nikki Minaj) you can see that Devil Music is still around and we should ban our youngsters from listening.  I just shudder at the thought of what might disgust my grandchildren when they are in their sixties and listen to the songs of their grandchildren.
