Classic rock is a style of music that arose in the late 50's/early 60's out of the then-popular blues genre. It was mainly derived from British teenagers who attempted to emulate the blues movement in the U.S. but created a whole new style all their own. Classic rock is known for its warm, overdriven guitar sounds, unique drumming patterns, melodic vocals, and simple yet innovative chord progressions. 90% of classic rock is based off the I-IV-V chord progression, and yet it all sounds different-quite an accomplishment if you ask me. Some of the best music in the world falls in the classic rock genre. In the 70's, classic rock began to progress and sound more modernized, with bands such as Journey, later Pink Floyd, and Boston spearheading the movement. Classic rock is not to be confused with southern rock.
Some well-known classic rock bands are Led Zeppelin, Cream, AC/DC, Jimi Hendrix, Dire Straits, Queen, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, ZZ Top, Journey, Boston, Foreigner, etc...

Possibly the greatest genre of music of our time. Most influential and innovential music that makes every genre look completely helpless, rapping about having sex with some fat black bitch in an alley way. Classic Rock is a genre that is a mixture of awesome backround music and genious lyrics that takes true talent and a love for good music.

Music these days is too violent. Drugs, sex, killing or whining (emo) is all I hear on most radio stations these days.
