47 Interesting Color Photos of a Young Bob Dylan in the 1960s

Bob Dylan, a folk rock singer-songwriter, started his career in the early 1960s with songs that defined social issues such as the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights Movement. During this time the rebellion against mainstream society was rising amongst the youth as they adopted alternative lifestyles as a way of achieving self-transformation.

According to James Dunlap, folk music was generally viewed, “as a way to understand or promote the common beliefs and aspirations of entire social groups,” which provided a way for young people to express their discontent with the mass culture and their parents’ values.

Through his songs, Dylan challenged the accepted beliefs of American society, focusing on the feelings of individuals rather than entire social groups. This lead him to become known as the unofficial spokesperson for the counter-culture movement of the 1960s and many young people looked up to him for their ideas concerning social ideas.
