The working class only rely upon their earnings from wage labour , thereby, the category includes most of the working population of industrialized economies , of the urban areas (cities, towns, villages) of non-industrialized economies , and of the rural workforce. In Marxist theory and socialist literature, the term working class is often used interchangeably with the term proletariat, and includes all workers who expend both physical and mental labour (salaried knowledge workers and white-collar workers ) to produce economic value for the owners of the means of production (the bourgeoisie in Marxist literature)

Other important influences on rockabilly include western swing , boogie woogie , jump blues , and electric blues . Defining features of the rockabilly sound included strong rhythms, vocal twangs, and common use of the tape echo ; but progressive addition of different instruments and vocal harmonies led to its "dilution"

Louvin Brothers
THE LOUVIN BROTHERS were an American musical duo composed of brothers Ira Lonnie Loudermilk (1924–1965) and Charlie Elzer Loudermilk (1927–2011), better known as IRA and CHARLIE LOUVIN. The brothers are cousins to John D. Loudermilk , a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member. The brothers wrote and performed secular country music , as well as fire and brimstone Gospel music . Ira played virtuoso mandolin and generally sang lead vocal in the tenor range, while Charlie played rhythm guitar and offered supporting vocals in a lower pitch. They helped popularize the vocal technique of close harmony in country and country-rock. After becoming regulars at the Grand Ole Opry and scoring a string of hit singles in the late 1950s and early '60s, the Louvin Brothers broke up in 1963 due in large part to Charlie growing tired of Ira's addictions and reckless behavior. Ira died in a traffic accident in 1965
