Rock is a type of music that is very general. People who dont like rock probably only listen to classical (good for them) or rap/R&B (stupid). Many things in the punk, emo, goth, alternative, metal, indie genres are rock. There are bad rock bands and there are bands that scream but this is not at all representative of most rock. Rock is not always about bad things in life but can be upbeat. Rock sometimes contains sexual language but never as often as rap. People who like only rap need to realize it is good for dancing but how talented is someone talking over a beat. And I ask you, is it better to complain about your life when it is really good (emo, I dont like)or is it better to sing about how rich you are (rap, I dont like)? People who rock are definitely not idiots and are smarter than those rappers who never got a full education and who are rich but still shoot at each other. (I hate Mike Jones). They also do drugs. As for the pop-pers they are just dumba$$es. Most rockers are talented but they need a little more to be great.

Rock music usually has several guitarists, a bassist, a drummer, possibly a keybordist and a vocalist (who might play an instrument).

Rock is is being taken over quickly by rap. In my city, Dallas area, there is one "alternative" station that mostly plays crappy nu-metal. There are a bjillion rap stations. People get hooked on the generic beats and simple, sexual lyrics and cannot go back. To save rock by a Muse, Spoon, Interpol album!!! These albums will not get you labeled (ok possible a little depressed) and can help SAVE ROCK!
Muse - They have created amazing sounds with just 3 people (and sometimes a fourth for certain songs). Muse rocks but they do not scream. They are not dumbasses. They are talented. They get their own genre

Nu-metal - Korn (I dislike nu-metal, it is a rap-rock combo)

Metal - DragonForce (metal is OK but there is often a lot of screaming)

Punk-pop - Green Day (punk music has been destroyed)

Punk - The Offspring? The Sex Pistols (punk music is mostly dead but it is not bad)

Emo - Jimmy Eat World or Fall Out Boy (emo used to be alright, but has degenerated into neo-emo, such as Panic! At The Disco)

Pop-rock - OK Go (this genre can be alright but is filled with many pretenders)

Alternative Rock - Spoon (the best genre in my opinion, wont get you labeled {possibly by idiots} either)

Hard Rock - Alter Bridge (not too bad, can be some screaming)

Goth - *dont know any goths* (this kinda creeps me out but not too bad)

Industrial - Marilyn Manson (this genre is a little heavy for me cant say its horrible though)

Brit-pop - The Kaiser Chiefs *might be considered alternative or pop/rock* (I like a lot of Brit-pop but it can get annoying)

Indie - The Yeah Yeah Yeahs (ehh ... not that great and I dont like the vocals of many indie bands)

Experimental - Radiohead (im not in love with them but they are good)

*all bands listed are still creating music or stopped recentely, except maybe for the sex pistols*

Originally created by the black community in the mid-1900s, it was a combination of Jazz, Blues, R&B, etc and was called rock & roll, named after the motion of sex. Evolved greatly through the 60s and 70s (a large part of which was due to The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and The Rolling Stones). In the 70s, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath introduced heavy metal. Today, rock has branched off into several categories including: Alternative Rock, Adult Alternative, Punk/ Skater Punk/ Garage, Emo, Metal, Hard Rock, Soft Rock, Classic Rock, Arena Rock, Motown, Doowop, Folk Rock, Industrial, Thrash Metal, Nu Metal, Psychedelic Rock, Progressive rock (broken up into German and Italian proggressive), Disco (hard as it is to accept), New Wave, Grunge, and Indie Rock. Evolved greatly during the first and second British invasions (The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, The Kinks, The Cure, Duran Duran, Eurythmyics, The Who, Boy George, The Birds, Chad and Jeremy, Deep Purple, The Troggs and The Sex Pistols). Took off at Woodstock, in Bethel, New York on August 15th, 16th and 17th, 1969. the most famous rock concert of all times. Made another turning point in the 80s with such bands as Mötley Crüe (technically formed 1979), Guns & Roses, Metallica, and Poison. (On a side note, John Lennon was also killed in the 1980s). However, the 80s marked the beginning of the end for rock - MTV. MTV, music televison, was originally around to promote rock (the first music video it aired, aptly enough, was "Video Killed The Radio Star"). However, as time went on, MTV shifted its focus to rap, and whatever rock was left was rock/rap hybrid: Limp Bizkit, Korn, POD, Linkin Park, Nine Inch Nails, etc. This later became nu metal. As nu metal gained huge popularity, genuine rock was left in the dust, and the networks realized that rap was the way to go. Now, rock is left with Coldplay and The Killers as its powerhouses, who, frankly, don't deserve the name, especially as they're becoming more and more overplayed. Rap is replacing it, apparent to residents of Philadelphia and the Delaware valley, who woke up on morning to find that Radio 1 had replaced Y100, an alternative rock station, with ANOTHER rap station. As if we needed more. Save rock!
I mourn the loss of rock.

A form of music, and probably the most well known. Rock started in the '50s as "rock n' roll", and was made popular by musicians such as Elvis Presley and Little Richard. It was mainly inspired by the blues and jazz, so it would be upbeat and appeal to young people. Rock has been instrumental in the history of America, and without it, we wouldn't have our society as we know it. Rock has evolved largely over the years. In the '60s, it was the common music of hippies, THE counter-culture of that decade, and was made even more popular by the arrival of British bands such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. In the '70s, it went even further as the music of rebellion, and split off into various subgenres, such as psychedelic rock, progressive rock, punk rock, and early heavy metal. The '80s introduced MTV, music television, as well as furthering heavy metal, which spawned its own offspring, such as NWOBHM, thrash metal, and glam metal, also known as hair metal. In the '90s, alternative rock and grunge took over the radio, MTV, and the charts. Sadly, in the new decade, the 2000s, rock is being thrown off by rap, pop, and R&B, none of which are nearly as good. Unfortunately, today's youth would rather listen to shitty, repetitive, synth-laden pop and rap than real music. Rock isn't doing too well by itself, either. Most rock bands nowadays suck, as they also write overproduced shit. The question I have is, "What in the fuck happened to good old-fashioned rock n' roll?"
Stupid 12-year-old wannabe gangster: YO ROCK IZ DEAD, GET WIT DA TIMEZ YO!!!!!!!!11111!!!!1111 YALL NEEDZ 2 LISSENZ 2 SUM RAP!!!!!!!!!!!11111
Me: Learn how to speak English you dumb shit. And no, just because rock is slumping in CD sales this year doesn't mean that it's "dead". Rock will always be better than rap because:

1. They sing, rather than just talk about a bunch of bullshit that no one with an IQ of 100 or over wants to listen to.

2. They play instruments.

3. They have always been, and always will be, the all-time best-sellers of the music business.

Wannabe gangster: STFU DOOD, ITZ GAY AND U KNO IT!!!!!111

Me: Oh really? Well, you should know that not all music is about being a "gangsta". It's not dependent on synthesizers and not all of it has to be stuff you can dance to in some shitty nightclub. You getting me here?

Wannabe: YO, THIS SHYT IS GAY. IMA GET MA BOYZ HERE AND WE Z GONNA FUCK UZE UP!!!!!!!!!!1111111

Me: (sarcastically) Oh, I'm so scared. (grabs the little shit by the head and drop-kicks him)
