I'm looking to learn more about the history of rock and roll music, and I'm interested in all of it, from Fats Domino to today. I'm mostly familiar with classic rock (Beatles, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, etc.), 80's pop (Duran Duran, Adam Ant) and "rock my wife doesn't like" (Metallica, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails), and I know that there's a lot I've missed and would like to expand what I know and hopefully what I like. I'm especially ignorant regarding punk, an interest ignited by my enjoyment of Green Day.
Ideally, I'd like to listen while I learn, so I've enjoyed some of the PBS documentaries I've seen on YouTube. I spend hours on Wikipedia reading about many bands all kinds of genres and sub-genres and sub-sub-genres, some I've heard of, most new to me. But the Wikipedia articles don't help much when learning about music. The terms mean nothing to me. I need to hear it.
So, does anyone have a suggestion for a fairly complete history of rock music that covers at least close to modern releases?
