Rock and Roll History By: Haley Rider

60s rock and roll inculded

60s Rock N' Roll included Chubby Chase, Ben E. King, The Beatles and Elvis Presley. This evolved from African American blues, R&B, and British Rock. It developed in Britain during 1962 to 63, and reached the United States in 1964 to 65. As it reached to the United States many called this the, "British Invasion" like how The Beatles became so popular.



The 70's included Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder, Rolling stones and Queen. The psycadelic 60's music genre slowly fades into Hard Rock, Pogressive Rock and Heavy Metal. The beginning of the 70's rock started off as soft rock and as the years go by it got heavier and heavier. During the years around '75 glam and glitter rock were popular with the band Kiss.


80's rock included The Tubes, Whitesnake, Vane Halen, Def Leopard and Guns N' Roses. 80's music was told to be the most popular decade in the era of rock and roll. Believe it or not, rock and roll in the 80's was a weak genre next to pop music, even though some rock bands were able to keep up a high point to save the rock and roll genre.


In the 90's, they included Blink 182, Weezer, RadioHead, Korn, and Nirvana. 90's rock and roll slowly started to take the roll in a more alternative sound the more it go into the 90s. But this is also an era where a lot of new genres of rock started to emerge. Like foxcore, gothic rock, grunge and many others.


The 2000's rock and roll included All American Rejects, My Chemical Romance, Green Day and Three Days Grace. Before 2010, the early 2000's were filled with newer sorts of music like indie or hardcore, death core, metal core, black metal and many others. This gave the rock and roll meaning on a whole other level, but rock still remains to this day. Especially pop rock music like Fall Out Boy and Avril Lavigne.
