In a This Day in History video, learn that on July 25, 1965, Bob Dylan forever changed the tune of folk music and went electric. Dylan debuted his new sound at the Newport Folk Festival, shaking the house with his first note of Maggie's Farm. The audience responded to Dylan with a sea of applause and booing; he wouldn't return to the festival for another thirty-seven years.
