Rock Radio Stations

Rock music is popular genre that first originated as rock and roll in the 1940s and 1950s. By the 1960s, it had developed into a number of different styles. Originally, it was a combination of rhythm & blues and country music, but by the 1960s it had began to incorporate elements from blues, folk and jazz amongst other influences. Rock music is primarily centred around the electric guitar and usually with a backing group of electric bass, drums, vocals and sometimes other instrumentation such as the piano and synthesizers. Musically, rock has centered on the electric guitar, usually as part of a rock group with electric bass guitar and drums. Typically, rock is song-based music usually with a 4/4 time signature using a verse-chorus form, but the genre has become extremely diverse. Like pop music, lyrics often stress romantic love but also address a wide variety of other themes that are frequently social or political in emphasis. The dominance of rock by white, male musicians has been seen as one of the key factors shaping the themes explored in rock music. Rock places a higher degree of emphasis on musicianship, live performance, and an ideology of authenticity than pop music.

By the late 1960s, referred to as the “golden age” or “classic rock” period, a number of distinct rock music subgenres had emerged, including hybrids like blues rock, folk rock, country rock, raga rock, and jazz-rock, many of which contributed to the development of psychedelic rock, which was influenced by the countercultural psychedelic scene. New genres that emerged from this scene included progressive rock, which extended the artistic elements; glam rock, which highlighted showmanship and visual style; and the diverse and enduring subgenre of heavy metal, which emphasized volume, power, and speed.
