Rock always has a guitar, a bass, drums, and kick ass deep lyrics. other instruments, including the piano, violin, and flute may be added.

In the 60's and 70's, rock was starting to form different genres there was the un-nameable genre from the likes of queen/led zepplin/pink floyd, the beatles, and jimmy hendrix.

In the 80's, metal. these genres were typically louder and darker, very fast paced and hard. Now days, this is the only thing non-rock fans think of when they think of rock and make fun of it. Metallica is a very popular band from this time.

In the 90's Rock broke into many more genres, including punk, emo, alternative, industrial, and many more. Many older rock fans who can't get their heads out of their asses feel this is where rock went bad. Rock never went bad; the mainstream media made anything remotely loud that included instruments be called rock and played it on the radio making it the flagship for rock, which it isn't. Nirvana Nickleback became the "radio rock" and sucks.

In present times, there are many uneducated posers who see rock as "stupid", "loud", and" too much screaming" which is only screamo rock. Those people listen to shitty rap music and don't know what they're talking about. Many older fans of rock think rock nowadays is bad, which isn't the case. It's different and it's changed, but it's not bad. If rock didn't change, we'd be listening to the same thing forever and rock would disappear.
