Most people didn't really listen to music casually back then. At least not to the extent we do today. FM Radio didn't even come along until the 70's.

They had classical and jazz music playing as background music or ambient probably. Certain parts of society were into the country/folk/bluegrass stuff I guess, but I can't imagine too many people were into it.

blues, big band, swing, bebop, ragtime, 20th century classical, impressionist, serialist, atonal, minimalist, neoclassical, neoromantic, folk.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Well rock 'n' roll was kind of a fusion of country and blues, the meeting of two cultures, white country and black blues. So a lot of what you listened to depended upon who you were and what culture you belonged to.
The most popular music previous to rock 'n' roll hitting the scene in the 50 was the big band sound of the 40s commonly known as 'swing' and also several forms of jazz, elements of both of which were also thrown into the mix to make rock and roll.
Like country and blues, big band was primarily white and jazz was primarily black, but there were a few artists that would cross the cultural divides.

Big band jazz. That was the pop music of the 30's and 40's.

The most popular music was Jazz, in all its forms, and mostly Big Band and Swing. Blues, Country, Gospel, etc. were around as well, but Big Band Jazz and Swing were basically the pop music of the era.

Surely most people know this...?
