Rock Music from 1960's to 2000's

Rock n Roll Music

Rock music, a touchy subject these days it seems for anyone over the age of 50. The true rockers who lived through the late 60’s and 70’s when rock music had its heyday. Zeppelin, Hendrix, The Doors, Janis Joplin, The Stones, The Beatles, the list can go on for a while, but you get the point, the 60’s and 70’s ushered in a new way to think about how rock music could be played. The psychedelic tones of the guitar fresh to the ears of teens and young adults of the time. Pushing forward a new culture of acceptance and love that echoes through the halls of our history.

Now we enter the late 90’s and early 2000’s because let’s face it besides punk (take that for what it is) music the 80’s had crappy glam rock and offered little else to music history books. Rock music of the present offers mere echoes of the greats of a time long since passed. You can now consider The Red Hot Chili Peppers rock music, but they started in a place far from there. The best rockers of this era find a way to honor the greats in style and guitar tone, but always find a way to differentiate themselves. Upon differentiating themselves bands find themselves situated in a sub-genre of rock. Take Tame Impala, they infused psychedelic guitar and echoing tones to form a new age psychedelic/ indie rock band.

Regardless of the rock time period you find yourself attaching to, a few things remain constant. First, the prevalence of face-melting guitar riffs followed by thumping prominent bass lines will always hold true as a mantra for rock music. A bad drummer that backs the whole band keeping them in rhythm while laying down some slick improvisations of his/ her own takes an important backseat. The rest of the band reflects the unique style of the musicians aim to attain. Some use mandolins, others pianos, and in the case of Neutral Milk Hotel the flugelhorn.

Rock music will resonate throughout eras of history for each respective generation it touches leaving ripples in the culture of time.
