Un-Rock is a genre of rock and roll that evolved from psychedelic rock music first played by bands like Pink Floyd. By early 2005, there was enough analog and digital technology so that intricate and complex FX could be layered during live performances and recordings over guitar, live drums, bass guitar, vocals, or any other combination of instruments without the use of pre-recordings or computers. There is a heavy indie rock influence in this type of music. The guitar sound can range from clean to fuzz to heavy distortion. The drums are live and use a deep driving kick. The melodies tend to be simple with few chord changes. It can range from down tempo to punk rock fast. This type of music is considered to be the trip-hop of rock and roll. Sam Oak of Unfamiliar Occurrence helped shape the sound of this genre of music by getting inspired by bands like Wilco, Nirvana, Pink Floyd, and Arcade Fire.
Un-Rock bands include: Unfamiliar Occurrence, Wilco, Arcade Fire, Dove, Deathcab for Cutie...
|2.||Rock 'n Roll|
The phenomenon which began in the 50's with the combination of rhythm and blues, country music, and gospel. It was pioneered by Chuck Berry, transformed by The Beatles, hardened by Led Zeppelin and AC/DC, and through the course of the 70's evolved into the pinnacle of musical glory.more...
Since then, it has lost the "Roll" and degenerated into "Rock" a generic term for all manners of crappy, modern, guitar driven music that has nothing to do with the messages, anthems, and ideals of old. Rather than professing a belief in the "Livin' easy, livin' free" lifestyle professed by AC/DC and their contemporaries, "Rock" now aims to piss and moan as much as possible whilst backed by horrible, rehashed guitar and pre-pubescent vocals about slutty girlfriends and cannabis.
Rock and Roll is not just a genre of music. Beyond that, it is a philosophy, attitude, and way of life. The purpose of Rock 'n Roll as opposed to other types of music, is to rebel. True Rock asserts that we need to stick it to The Man and Rage against The Machine (see The Man, see also The Machine). Rock and Roll is a way to disent The Establishment, and somewhere along the ...
An adjective used to describe something that does not "rock;" something that isn't cool; the opposite of something that "rocks". This term can be used as a replacement for "sucks".
This term was first coined by Akari Najaro in a recent IM conversation.
EX 1: "That rock band so totally un-rocked tonight."
EX 2: "My life really un-rocks right now!"
indie rock is a genre of music that is "undeground", thus not many people in the pop culture world know about these music gems. although some indie bands become big (ex. death cab for cutie) then their followers begin to think of them as "sell outs". indie rock is the best music out there, too bad todays shit music blinds the general public.
indie although is very competitive and mos hipsters compete for who knows more "un-known" bands.
some examples of indie rock artists are:
some indie rock record labels:
Rock always has a guitar, a bass, drums, and kick ass deep lyrics. other instruments, including the piano, violin, and flute may be added.more...
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.
Peice of shit floating in an un-flushed toilet bowl.
Dude...is that a math-rock?
1. Four-piece metal band from Florida that garnered major-label attention with their album Ember To Inferno, released on the German imprint Lifeforce, then released the metal masterpiece Ascendancy on Roadrunner Records in 2005. Although they are a fairly young group, they possess a great knack for song composition, as well as ample talent in the instrument department. While there is not a song on Ascendancy below good, I'd have to go with "Rain", "Ascendancy", and "A Gunshot To The Head Of Trepidation" as some of their standout tracks.
2. A band that I like, and is nestled in my iTunes library along with bands like RHCP and Led Zeppelin. Just remember dude above me, "not un-similar" is both a double negative and a nonexistent word.
1. Matthew Heafy is the lead singer and guitarist for Trivium, and Corey Beaulieu lends great vocals as well.
2. To put it so you can understand it, you're un-good.
