  1. 1. ROCK GENRE
  2. 2. History of Rock• The history of rock music isnt cut and dry. Many individuals debate who the first rock singer was and what the first rock song was. However, it is known that the history of rock music comes from the old R&B mixed with some country and western and fused with a little rockabilly.• The exact time period that the history or rock music started in is not known. There were rock and roll elements showing up in blues songs and old country western songs as far back as the 20s and 30s. By the 1950s the history or rock music had begun.• The phrase rock and roll used to have a sexual connotation attached to it. The phrase sometimes contained to two meanings. It appeared to mean dancing but was also associated with sex. It was first used in the title of Trixi Smiths 1920s song, “My baby rocks me with one steady roll.” However, it was Alan Freed a disc jockey from Ohio that first came up with the phrase rock and roll in 1955. With that, the history of rock music was well under way.• As stated before, just who started the history of rock music is under debate. This is because rock and roll music evolved from different genres and some songs that belonged to the blues, jazz, country, and gospel genres offered elements that could be considered rock and roll. However, it was Bill Haleys song, “Rock around the clock” that became popular enough to top the Billboard music charts.• In the history or rock music there have been many icons. Among the earliest rock stars are names like Bill Haley, Chuck Berry, and Little Richard. These early stars of the history or rock music led to the popularization or rock and a culture change that shocked the world. The dance crazes, fashion styles, and pop culture that followed the early history of rock music were made possible by these early stars.

  6. 6. The Rolling Stones• FORMED: January 1963, London, England The Rolling Stones define rock n roll. They are the longest running act in the history of rock music, having remained wildly popular and prodigiously productive over their 30-year career. The group was formed by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who met as schoolmates in Dartford, Kent. The legend has them bumping into each other on the platform at Dartford railway station, where Keith notices a blues album under Micks arm. A bond is struck immediately and the pair go on to form a band with a variety of personnel, who eventually include a boogie-woogie pianist called Ian Stewart and a gifted blonde blues guitarist from Cheltenham called Brian Jones (although at the time he is calling himself Elmo Lewis for added authenticity).
  7. 7. The beatlesThe Beatles were the most influential popular music group of the rock era. Theyaffected the post-war baby boom generation of Britain, the United States and manyother countries during the 1960s. Certainly they are the most popular group in rockhistory, with global sales exceeding 1.1 billion records.While they were originally famous for what some labelled light-weight pop music (andthe extreme hysterical reaction they received from young women), their later worksachieved a combination of popular and critical acclaim perhaps unequaled in the 20thcentury. Eventually, they became more than recording artists, branching out into filmand — particularly in the case of John Lennon — political activism. They achieved aniconic status with far reaching effects.The classic Beatles lineup consisted of John Lennon (guitar), (James) PaulMcCartney (bass), George Harrison (guitar), and Ringo Starr (Richard Starkey)(drums), all from Liverpool, Merseyside, in England.
  8. 8. Ac/dcAC/DC is an Australian rock band and considered pioneers of hard rock and heavymetal music. The group was formed in Sydney, Australia in December, 1973. Theiralbums have sold in colossal numbers — the total is now estimated to be around100 million copies worldwide.AC/DC is generally divided into Bon Scott era (1974-80) and Brian Johnson era(1980-present). Some fans have a preference, others point to the merits of bothsingers and appreciate them equally.Stiff Upper Lip is the 17th album from a group that many would call the world’sgreatest rock band. The 12-song disc finds AC/DC as unflappable as ever, avibrant, vital rock band at the top of their game.
