What is rock music?

The rock music genre, part of the popular music genre, began in the 1950’s a genre that evolved out of rock and roll which itself had been heavily influenced by rhythm and blues, folk and jazz. There are probably more sub genres to rock music than any other genre; Punk, hardcore, indie, grunge, progressive, psychedelic, new wave, rap, heavy metal and glam rock to name only a few.

The main instrumentation of rock music bands is the heavy driven guitar sound with bass and drums.

As with other popular music genres, rock music songs follow a verse - chorus format with a 4/4 time signature.

The lyrical themes of most classic rock music songs cover a wide and often diverse range of subject matter love, romance, sex, social unrest and political awareness.
