Elvis Birthday: Today Marks the 76th Birthday of Elvis Presley

elvis birthday

Elvis has left the building

If the King of Rock and Roll were still alive, he would be turning 76 today. Can you imagine Elvis Presley still shaking it at 76?

Well, unless you believe the crazy tabloid rumors that he is still alive and then maybe you believe that he is still somewhere out there, rocking out.

Elvis was the very first rock icon and one of the most well-known and well-recognized people of the 1950s. We tend to forget that he was not loved by all back then.

Though he definitely had a huge fan base, he also had detractors who though that his dancing was obscene and that he was somehow responsible for teenagers acting like…well, teenagers.

He passed away in 1977, at just 42 years old.
