Awesome Sauce Music Friday: Chuck Berry on the Golden Records

The inclusion of “Johnny B Goode” on the Voyager interstellar record was criticized as being “adolescent” music, to which Carl Sagan famously replied that our planet is full of adolescents.  Obviously, we do not regard adolescence here as some sort of intrinsically bad trait, but what do you think, dear readers?  What does it mean for music to be “adolescent?”

This song also made a cameo appearance in Back to the Future.

Elizabeth is a professional belly dancer, a flaky computer scientist, and a returned Peace Corps volunteer.
