Post rock is a genre of rock music coined by British music Simon Reynold as "using rock instrumentation for non-rock purposes, using guitars as facilitators of timbres and textures rather than riffs and powerchords." Post Rock will often times be built like classical music with different movements and emphasis on musical composition and dynamic movements. Common instruments used by post rock bands are guitars and basses as well as drums, auxillary percussion, string instruments, pianos, and even bagpipes and the occasional tape loop run through the record.

One of America's finest musicians and the greatest musician of country music. A fan of blues, gospel, folk, and bluegrass, he took wandering grassroots genres of music and made them into important musical achievements of our time. With hits like "Hey Good Lookin'" "Jambalaya" and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" to name a few, he paved the country music landscape with his lyrical talent and fondness for American born music. A rockstar before there were rockstars, he abused alcohol and died at the young age of thirty.
"Here that lonesome whipporwill,
he sounds too blue to fly,
The midnight train is whinin' low,
I'm so lonesome I could cry"

A fantastic hip-hop group formed in the late 80's-early 90's by now successful solo artist Q-Tip. They had a unique blend of jazz, rock, and alternative hip-hop that was not rivaled by many other groups. They have now disbanded, but their classic album "The Low End Theory" will live on as one of the greatest hip-hop albums ever recorded.
"Back in the days when I was a teenager,
Before I had status and before I had a pager,
You could find the abstract, listening to hip-hop,
My pops used to say it reminded him of bebop,
I said 'Well, daddy, don't you know that things go in cycles,
Way that Bobby Brown is just ampin' like
Michael,
It's all expected, things are for the lookin',
If you got the money, Quest is for the bookin''"
