From the Beatles' legendary run at the Star-Club in Hamburg in the early sixties to the progressive Krautrock of the seventies, from the New Wave of the eighties to the Electronica of the nineties, German music has had a significant, if underappreciated, influence on the global rock and pop music scene. "Germany Rocks" looks at Germany as a producer and consumer of popular music within the context of Germany's changing political, social, and cultural scene from the fifties to the present. In this class, we will listen to many songs and use our study of their lyrics to review grammatical features of the German language. We will also read about bands, genres, and musical movements in multiple texts including Sebastian Kurme's _Halbstarke: Jugendprotest in den 1950er Jahren in Deutschland und den USA,_ Henning Dedekind's _Krautrock: Underground, LSD und kosmische Kuriere_ and Benjamin von Stuckrad-Barre's _Blackbox: unerwartete Systemfehler_.
