Watch This Unique ‘History of Rock’ Video Mashup

By  Jeff Cornell for 

An incredible video is making the rounds online. The unique clip created by Ithaca Audio is called History of Rock and uses faux Facebook posts, featuring likes and comments from artists and bands, to share a somewhat chronological timeline of rock and roll’s history. Watch the video below.

The brilliant clip opens with The Yardbirds track “For Your Love,” which masterfully gets mixed with Elvis Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock” and Cream‘s “Sunshine of Your Love.”
