Rock & Roll

  1. 1. Rock & Roll
  2. 2. Rock & Roll <ul><li>What is Rock? </li></ul><ul><li>- The Beginning. </li></ul><ul><li>- Influences. </li></ul><ul><li>- Instruments. </li></ul><ul><li>- Accomplishments. </li></ul><ul><li>- Rock’s sub-cultures. </li></ul><ul><li>- Rock is… </li></ul>
  3. 3. Begining <ul><li>Rock and Roll started in the 50’s in the middle of a dark age for the world. </li></ul><ul><li>There were wars, hunger, lack of money and serious discrimination affecting lots of people, among other things going on. </li></ul><ul><li>So, Rock began in America, as a state of revolution against all the hate in the world. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Influences <ul><li>Rock & Roll was born from the mix of 3 types of music, very different from each other, Blues, Country and Jazz music, where all American types of music bind to give birth to the best type of music in the world. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Instruments <ul><li>The most common intruments in Rock are the guitar, the bass, the drums, and many times the piano or the keyboards. </li></ul><ul><li>In the beginning, instead of a guitar there was a sax. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Accomplishments <ul><li>This is our favorite part of the work, because we can finally justify why we say that rock is the best type of music ever.. </li></ul><ul><li>No music has ever changed the world as rock has. At a time when taboo dominated, rock came as a rebellion against everything. People didn’t have the courage to stand up against what they thought they should, and it actually made a difference upon people who listened to rock. They started having their own ideas about the world they lived in, and together they did things like bringing political regimes and dictatorships down. People brought down the big wall of Berlin at the sound of Pink Floyd!!! </li></ul>
  7. 7. Rock’s sub-cultures <ul><li>Country Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Folk Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Hard Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Heavy Metal </li></ul><ul><li>Indie Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Noise Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Pop Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Soft Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Space Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Stoner Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Progressive Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Punk Rock </li></ul><ul><li>- Grunge </li></ul><ul><li>- Acid Punk </li></ul><ul><li>- Hardcore Punk </li></ul><ul><li>Alternative Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Garage Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Gothic Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Psychadelic Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Symphonic Rock </li></ul><ul><li>Samba Rock </li></ul>
  8. 8. Rock is.. <ul><li>… a feeling, more than just good music; </li></ul><ul><li>… ‘ a bang in your head’; </li></ul><ul><li>a feeling; </li></ul><ul><li>the natural teenage riot, wasteland, anger inside each of us, allowing you to let go; </li></ul><ul><li>… a sense of freedom inside our own heads, freedom to think by ourselves and say what we mean. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>&quot;Punk is musical freedom. It's saying, doing and playing what you want. In Webster's terms, 'nirvana' means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that's pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock.&quot; by Kurt Cobain. </li></ul>
