A genre of music which spanned from about the early 1960's, starting with British Invasion Rock and The Beatles, to as late as the mid 90's, by which time most of "the greats" had died.
Classic rock is remembered and revered by most in society as the grounds for all forms of rock, many of which can be linked to a specific classic rock band, such as Metal
to AC/DC, and Psychadelic Rock
to Pink Floyd.
There is some descrepancy as to which bands are Classic Rock bands, and which bands were simply the first in their own area. some people group british invasion rock bands, such as the beatles and the who, seperately from Classic Rock, but most include them.
Many Classic rock songs are recognized by youth today, who dont even realize that someone actually CREATED such amazing music, and in some cases children actually believe that Classic Rock song exist from their "sheer awesomeness"
Each Classic Rock band has a distinct style, making the genre incredibly diverse and experimental, unfortunately, while the exact date of the end of Classic Rock is debated (some place it as early as the late 70's to as late as the death of Freddie Mercury
in 1991) it is a general consensus that Classic Rock is no longer in the making, and while it may be listened to forever, will not progress any further than it already has
