2. A unique combination of black soul, jazz and classical guitar that can trace genesis to the late 1940s and early 1950s, which has evolved through every subsequent decade. Modern rock is comprised of a common drum setup, a lead guitar (for harmony, riffs and solos), a rhythm guitar (for treble clef melody), and an electric bass guitar (for bass clef melody and harmonization).
-NOTE A: Often misunderstood and underestimated, rock music is unique in culture and sophistication, often falling victim to stereotypes such as "satanic", "head-banger garbage", "a bunch of screaming people throwing guitars around".
-NOTE B: Because of this misunderstanding, certain media corporations have erroniously determined rock to be a dead venue, and have moved on to another form of fad music genre that will surely fail (see Mega 101).
2. Have you heard that new rock song by Pantera?
The beatles, the who, Led Zep, Hendrix, Berry etc. are REAL rock.
2.(noun) Form of music with very deep lyrics and awesome guitar/bass riffs, bakced by drums. Lately it has been given a very bad name by people like Avril Livigne and other whiney folk who think just because they have a guitar in their hand and sing about how they broke their toe, went out with a sk8er boi, or lost their girlfriend five years ago make them fit to be in this genre. People like them are the reason 'rockers' are given suck a bad name.
3.(noun) Rocker-A person who enjoys rock. Is often mislabed, misunderstood, and picked on by illiterate morons who think our music sucks. Mean while they listen to music that all they talk about is "yo yo son nigger bitches and hoez madd bling bling" and have no personality of their own. Rockers are also called Punks. But labels are gay and should die. b)Often used to insult a person who enjoys rock music, some times followed by some idiot moaning "aahhhh rock onn duude"
