Rock and Roll music that takes you on an adventure. Similar to Adventure Metal, the umbrella term of adventure rock also encompasses the softer genres. All Adventure Rock music shares characteristics in name, style, and subject matter. Bands often have names depicting destinations or traveling, such as Journey, Kansas, Boston, Foreigner, Rush. AND/OR they create songs with different movements and fancy solos and develop fantastic and epic sounds and experiences: Queen, Tesla, Van Halen, Whitesnake. The ultimate Adventure Rock band is, of course, Led Zeppelin.
