Tracing Social Change Through Rock?

My unofficial "lyrics that best represent the decade they were sung in" is as follows:

"A wop bop-a-lula, a wop bam boom, tutti frutti aw rooty" - Little Richard, 1957
"The times they are a' changing" - Bob Dylan 1964
"God save the Queen & the facist regime" - Sex Pistols 1977
"I want my MTV" - Dire Straits 1985
"You get so mad at me when I go out with my friends" - Hootie & The Blowfish 1995

See a trend here? (hint: narcissism)
