Types Rock Music

When you’re working with a band and you hear the guitarist play a cool riff, or the rhythm guitar player lays down a great rickety rhythm track. You hear the bass player give a cool funky groove and the drummer is solid on his part. Then you have to ask yourself what they used to help them achieve that sound: slapback, echo, reverb, delay. Their sound could be best described as Rockabilly, rock music, alt-rock. They are all interconnecting to create their own unique sound that leaves an impression on their listeners

In this article, I will talk about “Types Rock Music”. Let’s start.

Types Of Rock Music

Alternative Rock

Alternative rock is a style of rock music that emerged from the independent music underground of the 1980s and became widely popular in the 1990s. In this instance, the word “alternative” refers to the genre’s distinction from mainstream rock music. The term’s original meaning was broader, referring to a generation of musicians unified by their collective debt to either the musical style or simply the independent, DIY ethos of punk rock, which in the late 1970s laid the groundwork for alternative music. At times it was used as catch-all phrase for rock music from underrepresented populations or styles.

Alternative rock generally belongs to a type of rock music that tends to downplay commercial considerations and mainstream influences, but usually not to an extent sufficient enough to be called avant-garde or experimental. Alternative bands and artists tend to have fewer obvious hits than other popular music acts and are often more inclined towards experimentation with different instruments and sounds. The genre began during the mid-1980s with releases by artists who withdrew from mainstream culture in favor of personal expression through their own recordings and live performances. These artists were marketed under such labels as “alternative”, “indie” or “college rock”.

Rock N Roll

Rock music is a genre of popular music that originated in the United States during the late 1940s and early 1950s. The earliest rock bands, which played a combination of rockabilly and rhythm and blues songs, derived from earlier blues, country, and folk musical styles. Rock music also drew strongly on a number of genres such as electric blues and folk. Musically, rock has centered on the guitar, usually as part of a rock group with electric bass guitar. Typically, rock is song-based music usually with a 4/4 time signature using a verse-chorus form, often using repetitive riffs or rhythmic passages played by instrumentals or both. Rock often takes the form of ballads in which the lyrics are about romantic love but also cover other topics such as social issues or politics.

Rock n roll (or “rock ‘n’ roll”) is a genre of American popular music that assimilates elements from African-American blues, R&B, gospel music, country and pop music to create a vibrant sound that emerged in the mid-1950s from Memphis, Tennessee to Los Angeles. It was heavily influenced by other forms of music including jazz…

Blues-Rock

Blues-Rock is a subgenre of rock music that developed in the United States and the United Kingdom in the mid-1960s. Blues rock is a fusion of blues and rock music. In his book titled “Blues Rock: A Fusion of Blues and Rock”, author Larry Nager describes blues rock as a derivative form of electric blues which combines elements of blues, country and rock and roll.

The term “blues-rock” first appeared as a description of a Pete Brown & Piblokto! recording called “Parchman Farm”, which was released in 1970 on the Deram label.

The genre has been described as combining the sound of American blues with the loud guitars and drums characteristic of British Invasion bands such as The Kinks and The Who, or playing up the down home feel with pop melodies.

Blues-rock is a fusion genre combining elements of blues and rock. It is mostly an American genre, originating in the United States in the early 1960s when British blues artists began incorporating electric instruments, amplified guitar riffs and new rhythms into their traditional acoustic music. In contrast to the respectful revivalism of 1950s and early 1960s rockabilly, however, late 1960s blues-rock musicians often used the music as a vehicle for protest.

Blues-rock was very popular in the late 1960s, with many bands being influenced by Jimi Hendrix’s electric blues guitar playing. The first major figure in this subgenre was Lonnie Mack, whose 1963 album The Wham of that Memphis Man! helped establish the template for later musicians.[4] Two notable examples are Eric Clapton’s “Crossroads” and “I’ve Got A Mind To Give Up Living” by George Harrison from his All Things Must Pass album (1970).

Progressive Rock

Progressive rock, or Prog Rock, is a subgenre of rock music that emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s as part of a mostly British attempt to elevate rock music to new levels of artistic credibility. Its roots can be traced to two musical fusions: the first is with jazz (most notably the work of Miles Davis); the second is with classical music. Progressive rock bands often use extended compositions, complex song structures, and an instrumental virtuosity that is designed to expand the boundaries of popular music.

Progressive rock was a significant influence on later genres such as post-punk and new wave, but it also influenced many non-rock artists. The sound of progressive rock was generally marked by the use of elaborate studio production techniques, a willingness to experiment with different musical styles and instruments, and an interest in pushing musical forms beyond their traditional limits.

Progressive rock is a form of rock music that developed in the United Kingdom and United States throughout the mid to late 1960s. In contrast to other forms of rock music, progressive rock is characterized by a high level of complexity and sophistication, often with lengthy compositions featuring changes in time signature and key signature, extended instrumentation, and a more experimental approach to lyrics, structure, and aesthetics. Progressive rock developed alongside psychedelic rock, avant-garde music, electronic music and early heavy metal.

Progressive rock tracks are often lengthy; they may be divided into sections that utilize different musical styles or instruments. The genre’s best-known artists include Pink Floyd (UK), Emerson Lake & Palmer (UK), Yes (UK), Ozric Tentacles (UK) Genesis (UK), Rush (Canada) King Crimson (United Kingdom), Van der Graaf Generator (United Kingdom), Jethro Tull (Scotland) Gentle Giant (England) Frank Zappa And The Mothers Of Invention (United States).

Indie Rock

Indie rock is a genre of alternative rock that originated in the United States and the United Kingdom in the 1980s. Originally used to independent record labels, the term became associated with the music they produced and was initially used interchangeably with alternative rock. In the mid-1980s, indie rock became a genre of alternative rock that leans towards an underground culture.

In the mid-1980s, indie rock became a genre of alternative rock that leans towards an underground culture. Indie bands often rely on online distribution for promotion, but some have also pursued traditional recording contracts with major labels.

Indie rock is a genre of rock music that originated in the United States and the United Kingdom in the 1980s. Originally used to describe independent record labels, the term became associated with the music they produced and was initially used interchangeably with alternative rock. In the mid-1980s, the term began to be used to describe the music produced on punk and post-punk labels. Some indie rock record labels were founded during the 1980s. During the 1990s, due to changes in the music industry, many indie rock artists failed to secure recording contracts with major record labels, but did have commercial success on sub-major labels. At the turn of the 21st century, it was difficult to draw a distinction between “independent” and “major” labels; this blurred approach to releasing music continues today. Indie rock has been associated with similar styles such as lo-fi, noise pop and emo by critics; however, by 2000 it had become more associated with a “lack of authenticity”.

Punk Rock

Punk rock is a rock music genre that developed between 1974 and 1976 in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia. Rooted in 1960s garage rock and other forms of what is now known as “proto-punk” music, punk rock bands rejected perceived excesses of mainstream 1970s rock. They typically produced short or fast-paced songs with hard-edged melodies and singing styles, stripped-down instrumentation, and often political, anti-establishment lyrics. Punk embraces a DIY ethic; many bands self-produce recordings and distribute them through informal channels.

Early punk artists were often dismissed by critics because they failed to adhere to traditional standards of what is considered “serious” music. By the late 1970s punk had become a major force in popular music and culture in the United Kingdom. It became common to refer to the prevailing style of music as “punk rock”.

Punk rock emerged from the British punk movement of the 1970s, which featured bands such as the Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Damned.

The term “punk rock” was used originally to describe a style of rock music that was more aggressive than what had been heard before.

The punk rock sound is typified by high-energy songs with simple rhythms and chord progressions, often played on electric guitars. Punk rock lyrics often include explicit social commentary and political protest.

Punk rock has had a significant impact on other genres of music, including alternative rock, heavy metal and pop music.

Psychedelic Rock

Psychedelic rock is a subgenre of rock music that often uses psychedelic themes, but sometimes includes other unconventional elements. Its origins are associated with the US and UK. The style is defined by the use of electronic instruments and feedback, sonic experimentation, and a strong influence from the psychedelic culture of the time.

Psychedelic rock incorporates elements of psychedelic pop, hard rock, acid rock, surf music and blues rock. It is mostly an electric guitar-based genre that was first popularized in the mid-1960s through the late 1960s; its immediate roots lay in the garage, folk and country rock scenes of mid-1960s America. The sound of American West Coast psychedelic rock bands was influenced by British beat groups such as The Animals and The Yardbirds and American folk music revivalists like Bob Dylan and The Byrds, but also drew heavily on more far out sounds like avant-garde jazz, Eastern music, early electronica/krautrock/space music (especially their use of wah pedals) as well as the exotic sounds of exotica albums such as Martin Denny’s 1959 album Forbidden Island.

Heavy Metal

Heavy Metal is a broad subgenre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, largely in the United Kingdom and the United States. With roots in blues rock and psychedelic rock, the bands that created heavy metal developed a thick, massive sound, characterized by highly amplified distortion, extended guitar solos, emphatic beats, and overall loudness. The genre’s lyrics and performance styles are sometimes associated with aggression and machismo.

Heavy metal has long been popular within the culture of Western Europe, particularly in Great Britain. Beginning in the mid-1970s, heavy metal fans became known as “headbangers” or “rockers” (later shortened to “hooligans”) for their wild and aggressive dancing at concerts.

Heavy metal is a genre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, largely in the Midlands area of England. With roots in blues rock and psychedelic rock, the bands that created heavy metal developed a thick, massive sound, characterized by highly amplified distortion, extended guitar solos, emphatic beats, and overall loudness. The genre’s lyrics and performance styles are sometimes associated with aggression and machismo.

Early heavy metal bands such as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple attracted large audiences, though they were often critically reviled; their albums were both commercially successful and highly influential upon subsequent rock music. In the mid-1970s Judas Priest helped spur the genre’s evolution by discarding much of its blues influence; Motörhead introduced a punk rock sensibility and an increasing emphasis on speed. Bands in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal such as Iron Maiden followed in a similar vein. Before the end of the decade, heavy metal fans became known as “metalheads” or “headbangers”.

Acid Rock

Acid rock is a loosely defined type of rock music that evolved out of the mid-1960s garage punk movement and helped launch the psychedelic subculture. Its practitioners contributed to the development of psychedelic rock, and many performed in various styles of garage rock.[1] Acid rock is often defined by its heavy, distorted, fuzzed and/or modulated guitar sound, and lyrics with drug references.[2]

The style is characterized by long improvised jams,[3] and has been described as “a combination of blues, psychedelia, and heavy metal.”[4] Other key elements include loud guitars, strong rhythms, and “growling” vocals.[5] Distinctions between other genres can be tenuous; it may also encompass certain garage rock, 1960s punk,[6] proto-metal and heavy, blues-based hard rock.[7][8][9] The style often influenced hardcore punk bands[10][11][12][13][14][15] and stoner rock bands.

Acid rock is generally defined by distorted guitars, lyrics with drug references, and long improvised jams. Distinctions between other genres can be tenuous; it may also encompass certain garage rock, 1960s punk, blues-rock, and heavy, blues-based hard rock.

The term “acid rock” was coined in the 1960s to describe bands with a more aggressive style than many of their peers.[1] Often shorter songs were called “pop cuts” or “pop singles.” When played by doo-wop groups from New York City such as The Belmonts or The Duprees, these were known as “singles”, but when performed by British Invasion groups such as The Beatles or The Rolling Stones they were called “songs”.

Soul Rock

Soul rock is a genre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It combines elements of soul music, rhythm and blues, blues rock, and gospel with the more aggressive sounds of early punk rock.

Soul rock is most often associated with the first wave of British bands that emerged from the British mod scene and was initially promoted by DJ John Peel. Many of these bands were influenced by Jamaican reggae and ska music, such as The Police.

By the mid-1970s, groups such as Roxy Music, The Rolling Stones and Bad Company had begun to incorporate elements of soul into their music, creating a new genre known as “soft rock”. However, many soul artists in America were reluctant to label themselves as “soul” musicians because it implied a lack of authenticity; instead they preferred to be seen as R&B artists.

Soul rock is a subgenre of rock music that originated in the late 1950s and early 1960s, heavily influenced by rhythm and blues and gospel music. It combines elements of gospel and soul music with blues and other genres, including rockabilly, funk, folk and jazz. Soul rock can be found in many subgenres.

Soul influence was evident in the work of British acts like The Animals, The Spencer Davis Group and Van Morrison’s Them in the mid-1960s. In 1966, American singer Ray Charles’ singles “I Got a Woman” and “Hit the Road Jack” helped popularize soul as mainstream music. Other influential recordings included James Brown’s 1965 hit “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag”, which introduced the drum beat to popular R&B; Sam Cooke’s “Bring It On Home to Me”, which added gospel elements to pop/R&B; Wilson Pickett’s cover of Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay”; Aretha Franklin’s “Respect”; and Smokey Robinson & the Miracles’ “The Tracks of My Tears”.

Synth Pop Rock

Synth pop is a genre of new wave music that first became prominent in the late 1970s and features the synthesizer as the dominant musical instrument. It was prefigured in the 1960s and early 1970s by the use of synthesizers in progressive rock, electronic art rock, disco, and particularly the “Krautrock” of bands like Kraftwerk. It arose as a distinct genre in Japan and the United Kingdom in the post-punk era as part of the new wave movement of the late 1970s to the mid-1980s.

The earliest synth-pop bands included: Japan (who also played glam rock); Ultravox (who played New Romantic); Tubeway Army (who would later become famous as a band led by Gary Numan); and The Human League (who were influenced by Kraftwerk). Defining features often included synthetic textures; repetitive hooks; and sometimes vocals processed through a vocoder or speech synthesis device.

Synth Pop Rock is a genre of rock music that uses synthesizers to create electronic music. Synth Pop songs are generally upbeat and catchy with electronic beats, bright melodies and colorful sounds. The genre can be recognized by its use of synthesizers, drum machines and vocoders.

Synth Pop Rock became popular in the 1980s with the rise of new wave music. By the 1990s, it had evolved into several subgenres including EBM (electronic body music), dance-punk and synthpop ballads.

Glam Rock

Glam rock is a genre of rock music that developed in the United Kingdom and the United States throughout the mid to late 1960s, which features overt theatricality, often with a star performing in front of a video screen. Glam artists rejected the revolutionary political and social constraints of hippie culture, instead glorifying decadence and hedonism. Glam rock was heavily influenced by the fashion of glam rockers, which included wearing large amounts of make-up, platform shoes and using highly-processed hair.

Glam artists often dressed in clothes designed to make them appear more sexually attractive. This was particularly true of David Bowie who became known for his androgynous appearance and gender bending performances.

Glam rock is a style of rock music that developed in the United Kingdom and the United States. In the UK, the style was popular from about 1968 to 1974, but it did not receive widespread attention in the US until the mid-1970s.

Glam artists wore elaborate outfits and makeup and had a theatrical live stage performance that often included back-up dancers, gymnastic maneuvers, and elaborate lighting. Many acts used synthesizers to enhance their sound and some groups used them to replace electric guitars or horns.

The British glam rock scene was dominated by a small number of bands including:

David Bowie : David Bowie began his career as a mime artist, but he changed direction when he met guitarist Mick Ronson in 1967 and started playing guitar himself. During this period he began experimenting with different styles of dress, make up and dance moves which led to him being grouped together with other artists such as Marc Bolan, Glam Rocker T Rex and Gary Glitter who all dressed in flamboyant clothes while performing on stage. In 1972 Bowie released Ziggy Stardust which featured songs like Starman which helped define his image as an alien type character who was deeply influenced by science fiction books such as 2001 A Space Odyssey (1968).

Roots Rock

Roots rock is the rock music of the roots revival movement that began in the United States and Britain in the late 1970s. The first use of the term “roots rock” appears to have been by critic Jim DeRogatis in a 1979 review of the band Little Feat’s album Let It Roll.

Roots rock is based on traditional forms such as blues, country, folk, and gospel but also includes more contemporary artists working in genres such as alternative country and Americana. In general, roots rock incorporates elements from earlier American musical genres such as blues and folk music, but there is no clear definition of what constitutes roots music or rock; so many definitions exist that it is difficult to define the genre. The term has also been applied to country music and bluegrass.

Roots rock is a genre that combines elements of rock and roll, country and folk music. It is a subgenre of rock and roll, which was originally used to describe the combination of blues and country music in early rock & roll.

Roots rock became popular in the 1970s when it became the dominant style of American rock music. The term roots rock was coined in 1971 by Pete Seeger to describe Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline album, which contained country influences but remained on the folk-rock path taken by his previous albums. In contrast with these “countrypolitan” sounds, other artists such as Gram Parsons (who was heavily influenced by country) began to develop the idea of “cosmic American” music that fused traditional folk music with progressive rock influences.

The genre has its roots in Southern American country music and Southern soul, but also draws on other genres such as gospel, blues, soul and even jazz.

Types Rock Music Types Of Rock Music

Folk-Rock

Folk-Rock

Folk rock is a blend of folk and rock music that developed in the United Kingdom and United States. Folk rock blends the acoustic guitar and banjo with contemporary vocal styles such as folk-rock, blues, and country. The term was first coined by the U.S. music press to describe the Byrds’ blend of folk, country, and rhythm and blues influences on their 1964 album Mr. Tambourine Man.[1] Folk rock was a major genre among emerging English bands, particularly mod bands.[2] The Who’s Pete Townshend was an early pioneer of folk-rock,[3] which he defined as “a blend of Chuck Berry rhythms with Donovan’s love songs”.[4]

Other major British folk-rock acts included Pentangle (whose 1967 debut album featured Irish traditional songs), Fairport Convention (co-founded by Richard Thompson), Steeleye Span (whose first two albums were mostly traditional material) and the Incredible String Band (whose 1968 album ‘The Hangman’s Beautiful Daughter’ had been recorded live in concert).

Arena Rock

Arena Rock is a type of rock music that was developed in the mid-1970s and is characterized by an emphasis on arena size venues, elaborate stage shows and, in later years, music videos. The term has been used to describe bands such as Queen, Rush, Def Leppard and Van Halen. It also describes the large scale at which some concerts are presented to thousands of people. A distinguishing feature of arena rock is that the huge stages and elaborate productions featured elements designed to appeal to the senses (such as lighting, lasers and fireworks) while still maintaining an overall aesthetic unity.

Arena rock is a style of rock music that originated in the mid-1970s. In the mid-1970s, increased power of sound systems allowed the use of larger and larger venues. Smoke, fireworks and sophisticated lighting shows became staples of arena rock performances. Key acts included Journey, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Styx, Kansas and Pat Benatar.

The term was coined by British rock critic Nick Kent to describe Pink Floyd’s stadium tours in 1975–1977. His critique was based on David Gilmour’s guitar solos and Richard Wright’s keyboard sounds as well as their use of synthesisers and electronic effects – but not on the overall sound or feel of their music, which he described as “a massive wall of sound that is more like an arena than a stage”.

Soft Rock

Soft rock is a subgenre of rock music that was developed in the 1970s, but became commercially popular in the 1980s. It tends to use smoother, softer instrumental arrangements, and an overall style that emphasizes romanticism, nostalgia and an approach to lyrics that often features the use of metaphors and imagery. The genre has become increasingly mainstream with the commercial success of bands like Fleetwood Mac, Air Supply and the Eagles in the 1970s and the later inclusion of artists such as Phil Collins, Lionel Richie and Bryan Adams in the 1980s.

History

Soft rock first emerged as a commercial format in the late 1960s and early 1970s through artists such as Carole King, James Taylor and Bread. Unlike hard rock or heavy metal music (or even progressive rock), soft rock was generally more melodic and less aggressive than other contemporary genres. Some soft rock songs were based on folk music styles (e.g., Crosby Stills & Nash’s “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes”).

Funk Rock

Funk rock is a subgenre of rock music that typically uses funk rhythms and blues influences.

The best-known band to use the genre is Parliament, whose 1975 album Mothership Connection reached the top of the Billboard R&B albums chart as well as spawning two Top 20 singles, “Tear the Roof Off the Sucker (Give Up the Funk)” and “P.Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up)”. The band’s sound was based on their leader George Clinton’s doo-wop and R&B-influenced vocals, along with Jimi Hendrix-inspired guitar lines from Eddie Hazel and heavy horn sections.

The genre has been revived in recent years by bands such as OutKast, who combined funk rock with hip hop. Another group from this era was Sly and the Family Stone, who mixed funk with acid rock and psychedelic music.

Funk rock is a subgenre of funk rock, the latter being a fusion genre that combines elements of funk and rock. It was pioneered by Sly & the Family Stone in the late 1960s, and reached its commercial peak in the 1970s.

Funk rock’s typical instrumentation features bass guitar, electric guitar, drums, and keyboard instruments such as Hammond organ or synthesizer. The style often takes cues from black soul music as well as blues-rock.

The sound is characterized by heavy bass and distorted electric guitars and keyboards, with much less focus on melody than their black counterparts. The lyrics often have a political message of social justice, like those of Marvin Gaye or Curtis Mayfield.

Garage Rock

Garage rock (also called primitive rock and punk rock) is a raw and energetic style of rock and roll that flourished in the mid-1960s, most notably in the United States and Canada. The term derives from the perception that groups were often made up of young amateurs who rehearsed in the family garage, although many were professional. The style, a precursor to rock, is characterized by aggressive and unsophisticated lyrics and delivery, sometimes using guitars distorted through a fuzzbox, as well as often rudimentary musical instruments and occasionally odd vocal effects. It has been associated with 1960s punk culture.

The sound of American garage rock bands often used the tried-and-true combination of a distorted guitar played through an amplifier powered by vacuum tubes (called “old school”) or solid state transistors (known as “new school”). This “raw” sound was not only achieved by using low budget equipment but also by limiting musicianship — most garage bands never learned to read music or play other instruments besides their primary instrument.

In addition to the distorted guitar sound, one of the hallmarks of early garage rock was its use of fuzztone-distorted guitar riffs (which would later be taken up by heavy metal music).

Space Rock

Space rock is a subgenre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, largely in England. Although the term “rock” was first used to describe a style of popular and folk rock music, it has been applied to other forms such as electronic music.[1]

Space rock developed from psychedelic rock and progressive rock during the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is an extension of the earlier American genres known as acid rock and psychedelic rock, which had preceded it. Some of its pioneers have been associated with drugs: Pink Floyd, Hawkwind and Gong were among several bands to emerge from London’s underground LSD scene.[2][3]

The early-1970s space rock groups Hawkwind, Magma, Gong, Amon Düül II, Can (band) and Guru Guru were among those that experimented with electronic instruments,[4] such as synthesizers[5] or electronic drones,[6] feedback loops[7] and extended improvisation.[8] The results were experimental music,[9] krautrock[10][11] or post-punk.[12][13][14][15][16].

Electronic Rock

Electronic rock, also known as industrial rock, is a subgenre of alternative rock that draws influence from industrial music. While the genre name is used to refer to a wide range of groups, it is typically used more specifically to describe music that incorporates synthetic instrumentation and effects with elements of rock and electronica.

The earliest incarnation of electronic rock was in the mid-1970s with British bands like Ultravox, Killing Joke and Cabaret Voltaire. It was pioneered by bands such as Kraftwerk, who began to use synthesizers in their work in the early 1970s. The industrial rock artists who followed in the 1980s, including Nine Inch Nails (NIN), Ministry and Front Line Assembly (FLA) have been described as “truly electronic” acts because they relied on synthesizers rather than guitars or other traditional rock instruments. Other artists who have been identified as electronic rock artists include Psychic TV, Suicide Commando and Combichrist.

Experimental Rock

Experimental rock (also known as avant-rock, art rock and progressive rock) is a subgenre of rock music which pushes the boundaries of common composition and performance technique or which experiments with the basic elements of the genre. Artists aim to liberate, extend and sometimes deconstruct their works through new techniques, sound, format and presentation.

There is no one style which unites experimental rock artists; rather, a wide range of approaches are represented in this list, which may be categorized into three loose groups:

1. Rock bands that use electronic instruments to produce sounds that were unattainable using conventional means (e.g., krautrock bands such as Can, Faust or Neu!);

2. Rock bands that incorporate elements of classical music or jazz (e.g., free jazz musicians such as Ornette Coleman or Sun Ra);

3. Solo artists who incorporate avant-garde or contemporary classical elements into their work (e.g., John Cale).

Experimental rock (also called progressive rock) is a subgenre of rock music which pushes the boundaries of common composition and performance technique or which experiments with the basic elements of the genre. Artists often incorporate avant-garde influences into their work.

Experimental rock is a major genre of rock music that developed in the United States and the United Kingdom in the mid to late 1960s. It drew on diverse musical sources, including the avant-garde, psychedelic rock, and musique concrète. Experimental rock bands typically produced short or long compositions that were not intended for mainstream radio airplay or commercial recordings. The use of electronic instruments such as synthesizers was pioneered by various groups, especially in krautrock and psychedelic rock. The evocative lyrics used in experimental rock often deal with non-conventional subject matter, such as politics, religion, philosophy, science or nature. In general, they are less concerned with the traditional aspects of songwriting than typical popular music genres which feature lyrics about love and heartbreak.

Surf Rock

Surf Rock

Surf rock is a subgenre of rock music that developed in Southern California in the early 1960s, largely as a result of the Beach Boys’ hit single “Surfin”‘ and the popularity of skateboarding. The genre’s name references the surf culture associated with the sport.

The genre was originally inspired by mid-1950s rock musicians from Southern California who would play impromptu concerts at the many seaside clubs and bars in their hometowns. Popular songs included covers of hits by other artists, such as “Pipeline” by The Chantays, “Wipe Out” by The Surfaris, and “Surfin’ U.S.A.” by The Beach Boys. Surf music continued to influence other genres well into the 1970s because of its simple beat and relaxed feel that made it easy for anyone to listen to.

Surf Rock

Surf rock was the first distinctly American rock and roll genre that became popular during the mid-1960s. It consisted primarily of instrumental recordings of surf music, particularly adapted from various sources such as Dick Dale’s “Let’s Go Trippin'”, The Chantays’ “Pipeline” and The Surfaris’ “Wipe Out”, among others.

Although these bands were probably not aware of it at the time, they were among the first to record songs that would be considered deluxe rock: music with a heavy influence from jazz and blues and a strong rhythm section, but without lyrics. Surf music was not just instrumental, however; many early bands also had singers who sang in high-pitched voices and sang about the carefree lifestyle associated with surfing.

The Beach Boys are often considered the first surf band because they helped bring surf music into mainstream pop culture. They had several hits in 1962/1963 including “Surfin’ USA” and “Surfer Girl”. Their bass player and songwriter was Brian Wilson who was also responsible for composing many of their hits including “I Get Around”, “In My Room” and “Little Deuce Coupe”.

Britpop Rock

Britpop is a British rock music movement that emerged in the 1990s as a reaction against various musical and cultural trends in the UK. The music of the period was broadly influenced by lo-fi, indie, and post-rock movements, with bands commonly featuring members with Scottish, English, Welsh and Irish ancestry. Britpop was often a reaction against what was perceived to be the domination of British radio airwaves by dance music and American grunge. The accompanying visual style of Britpop artists was linked to that of ’60s mod culture and, to some extent, the new wave movement from several years earlier.

The movement developed from a number of sources: it reacted against moneyed and cynical 1980s pop in general; it developed a musical identity for British pop musicians who thought their American counterparts had sold out; it responded to one-hit wonders by bands like Suede (whose song “Country House” became an anthem) who were considered backward looking compared to other British guitar rock bands; it reacted against the dominance of indie rock band Oasis; it sought to distance itself from Madchester (a short-lived Manchester scene); and it was influenced by rave culture which was popular at that time.

Art Rock

Art rock is a subgenre of rock music that was developed by artists who wanted to break from the traditional popular music format. Art rock is characterized by avant-garde or experimental influences, which can include extended instrumentals, elaborate studio experimentation, and sonic experimentation. It may have experimental or avant-garde influences.

Art rock emerged during the mid-1960s among British and American musicians; it gained prominence in the 1970s with the release of albums such as The Velvet Underground & Nico (1967), In the Court of the Crimson King (1969), and The Dark Side of the Moon (1973). Other examples include Emerson Lake & Palmer’s Emerson, Lake & Palmer (1970).

Stoner Rock

Stoner rock is a subgenre of rock music that originated in the mid-1960s, largely as a outgrowth of the British blues boom. The style was pioneered by bands such as Blue Cheer, Buffalo Springfield and The Mothers of Invention.

The style became popular in the late 1960s and early 1970s, through the work of groups like Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Pink Floyd. By the early 1970s, Stoner Rock was being used to describe music performed by groups like Free, Jethro Tull and Grand Funk Railroad, whose music was much heavier than their contemporaries but still not as intense as what would come to be known as Heavy Metal.

Stoner Rock bands place emphasis on long compositions and extended solos. Stoner Rock is generally characterized by repetitive riffs, lyrics centered around drug use or literature (often science fiction) and an extremely loud sound (#3).

Stoner rock is a subgenre of rock music that draws its inspiration from the lifestyles of regular cannabis users. Stoner rock musicians and fans are often referred to as “stoners” or “potheads”.

Instrumental Rock

Rock music is a genre of popular music that originated in the 1950s and early 1960s with the initial successes of Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Bill Haley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard and others. The sound of rock often revolves around the electric guitar or acoustic guitar, and uses a strong back beat on most songs.

Rock music has been influenced by many genres of music including blues, gospel, country, folk, R&B and pop music. Rock has also been heavily influenced by other styles including soul, funk, progressive rock and jazz fusion. While many rock bands are categorized as hard rock or heavy metal such as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, respectively; some bands like Pink Floyd blended several styles together to create a unique sound.

Instrumental Rock

Instrumental rock is a form of hard rock which is based on extended soloing rather than traditional songwriting or vocals. It usually features virtuoso musicianship on instruments such as electric guitar or keyboard instruments as well as rhythmic complexities in order to create a sense of excitement.

Jazz-Rock

Jazz-rock is a subgenre of rock music that developed in the late 1960’s. It is a fusion of jazz and rock and many artists have contributed to the style, including Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Return to Forever, Weather Report and Miles Davis.

Jazz-rock is essentially jazz played with electric instruments (hence the name). The first forms of this genre were pioneered by Miles Davis in his album In a Silent Way (1969), though he had been experimenting with this style of music since around 1966. These early works are often referred to as “primal” jazz rock due to their abstract nature – they are not easily classified as either jazz or rock music.

The genre continued to develop throughout the 1970s when groups such as Weather Report and Return To Forever released some of their most famous albums. During this time, bands like Santana also began experimenting with elements of jazz-rock fusion in their own work.

Sleaze Rock

Sleaze rock (or sleaze metal) is a style of riff-driven, hard rock music that emerged in the late 1980s as a reaction to the dominance of glam metal. Sleaze rock songs often feature dark lyrics about sex, drugs and alcohol abuse, as well as elements of bluesy Southern rock and punk rock. The style was typified by bands such as Mötley Crüe, Ratt and Poison, whose hits included “Girls, Girls, Girls”, “Talk Dirty To Me” and “I Want Action”.

Los Angeles sleaze rock -led by Guns N’ Roses- was heavily influenced by British bands such as The Rolling Stones and AC/DC. Los Angeles sleaze rock reached its peak in popularity in the mid ’80s when it became one of the most popular genres in America.

Sleaze Rock bands include: Motley Crue, Ratt, Warrant, Cinderella and others.

Gothic Rock

Gothic rock is a subgenre of alternative rock that emerged in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s. Gothic rock bands grew from the strong ties they had to the English punk rock and post-punk scenes, with specific acts being able to spread their popularity into both scenes. The genre itself was defined as a separate movement from post-punk due to its darker music accompanied by introspective and romantic lyrics.

Gothic rock initially formed as a counterculture reaction to punk, an anti-establishment movement led by such bands as Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joy Division and The Cure. It originated in the United Kingdom in 1976 when Siouxsie and the Banshees released their debut album The Scream on Polydor Records. Their music was heavily inspired by David Bowie’s “Berlin Trilogy” (Low, “Heroes”, Lodger) and Iggy Pop.

Gothic rock is a sub-genre of post-punk that emerged during the early 1980s, featuring a dour, dark and gloomy atmosphere, often with poetic lyrics and a bleak worldview. Gothic rock generally features ominous bass lines and haunting melodies. Lyrics may be about horror stories, ghosts, death and destruction or contain existential themes.

The genre drew on punk’s disaffection as well as gothic imagery from Romanticism which had been updated for post-punk, incorporating influences from 1960s British pop groups like the Rolling Stones and Small Faces. Some bands, like Siouxsie and the Banshees, or Bauhaus explicitly aimed to sound like Joy Division but with saxophones; while others such as The Cure were influenced by Krautrock musicians such as Kraftwerk and Neu!

The Grateful Dead were an American rock band known for their unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country music, jazz, psychedelia, gospel and space rock; for live performances of lengthy instrumental jams; for their devoted fan base; and for their many years of touring. “Their music,” writes Lenny Kaye, “touches on ground that most other groups don’t even know exists.” These various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole that made the Grateful Dead “the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world”.

Industrial rock artists often have a more experimental sound than traditional rock artists, using a variety of different instruments and electronic equipment.

The genre has been described as “a cross between industrial noise and punk rock.” Industrial music was created in the mid 1970s by bands such as Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire, who mixed elements of punk rock with experimental electronic music to create an abrasive blend of avant-garde sounds. They were later followed by groups like Einsturzende Neubauten, Test Dept., Clock DVA and Front 242, who took these ideas further by incorporating elements from genres like blues, jazz and classical music into their work.

Industrial rock is a genre of rock music that draws on the post-industrial music genre. It’s usually more abrasive and harsher than post-industrial and it can feature noise, distorting guitars and synthesizers, and other elements not typically associated with rock music. The genre emerged in the mid-1980s with artists such as Throbbing Gristle, Laibach, Clock DVA and Cabaret Voltaire.

Geek rock features songs about science fiction, fantasy, video games and other aspects of geek culture. The style is characterized by its use of electronic sounds played on guitars and synthesizers. It can be divided into two eras: the 1980s era, which was influenced by new wave music; and the 1990s era, which was influenced by grunge music.

Geek rock is a subgenre of rock music that emerged from the nerdy and geeky counterculture in the early 2000s. The genre is loosely defined by a combination of musical traits and interest themes often revolving around science fiction, fantasy, and video games.

The earliest geek rock artists were inspired by prog rock and new wave music. The genre developed in the 2000s as a reaction against the mainstream pop music of the time. Geek rock bands are often amateur performers who record for fun or release their work independently. They may be influenced by popular culture, gaming, or other fandoms.

Geek rock has become increasingly mainstream since its inception, with bands like Harry and the Potters and The Doubleclicks reaching a wider audience than ever before. The Dresden Dolls had some commercial success in 2005 with “Coin-Operated Boy”, their first single from their debut album Yes Virginia… . The Doubleclicks’ 2011 album President Snakes! was nominated for Best Comedy Album at the 54th Grammy Awards.

Reggae Rock

Reggae Rock has been popularly associated with Jamaican culture since its introduction to mainstream audiences in the early 1970s, but it is also enjoyed by fans worldwide.

The most famous examples are Toots & the Maytals (“Funky Kingston”), Bob Marley & The Wailers (“Catch A Fire”), Peter Tosh (“Legalize It”) and Culture (“Two Sevens Clash”). Some of these songs were written by the Rude Boy poet Linton Kwesi Johnson, who also performed with The Specials on their album More Specials.

Notable bands include Third World, Steel Pulse and Black Uhuru who were pioneers in the genre.

Rock Music Subgenres

Rock music is a genre of popular music that originated in the 1950s. The first rock stars were from the United Kingdom and United States. In its early years, rock music was seen as a rejection of the country-and-western styles that had been popular with American audiences for the previous decade. Rock often consists of at least one electric guitar, bass guitar and drums in a three-part harmony. Rock songs are usually based on two or four chords played by electric guitars or keyboards, with an occasional harmonic accompaniment by other instruments or even vocals. Conventions of song structure are generally similar to those of Western classical music. However, there is no fixed length for either verse or chorus as they can vary from one song to another depending on their purpose; some may be only 30 seconds long while others may extend to five minutes in length.

Rock music is a form of popular music that evolved in the United States and United Kingdom during the mid- to late-1950s. Rock bands such as Led Zeppelin, The Who, Cream, The Kinks and Pink Floyd also helped to lay the foundations for many of the subgenres that exist in rock music today, whilst artists such as David Bowie, Queen and Elton John helped to develop glam rock. Rock music has been characterized by electric guitars often playing power chords with distortion and vocals that are sometimes operatic or theatrical. Aesthetically speaking, rock music has been described as a blend of blues, pop, and art rock.

Rock subgenres include arena rock (or stadium rock), heavy metal (also called metal), glam rock (also called glitter rock), punk rock (also called new wave punk), post-punk revival, alternative rock (also called alternative pop/rock) and indie pop.

Rock Music Characteristics

Rock songs are generally based on a verse-chorus structure (the chorus being eight bars in length). The lyrics tend to be more abstract than those in other genres, often dealing with social issues or personal relationships. A typical verse can be as short as four bars or as long as sixteen bars. The “verse” is usually followed by a “bridge”, which can last from two to eight bars; this section usually contains a melodic climax (often taking place over an augmented chord), after which it moves back to the main verse. Choruses are often eight bars long and tend to be lyrically simple; however, since they are repeated throughout a song, their musical value becomes more apparent over time.
