Sock hop, sox hop or record hop was a
name used in the 50's for informal dances held for teenagers. Sock
hops were often held at schools after football games or other school events.
Sock hops featured rock music and the sock hop got its name because teenagers
were required to remove their hard soled shoes to protect the varnished floors
of school gymnasiums.
