When Rock arrived on the music charts in the 1950’s, a merging of African-American and White music, it made a huge impact on society. As a general rule I am not heavily into music, but I was drawn to Rock for some inexplicable reason. It is just the music I like. This genre will be difficult to write about because the origin of Rock is unclear; there are traces of Rock’s style back into the 19th Century. It is also a very broad subject and I will have to compress a lot of information into as few pages as possible. Be that as it may, Rock is, in my opinion the best music genre on the charts.
There is so much information on Rock that I will have to have questions I want to find the answers to about the music. My first question will be, “What instruments are commonly used in a rock band?” This will not be hard to answer as it is a very easy question that has a definite answer. The next question will be, “Who were the first artists to produce Rock music?” This is also an easy question were I will discuss the first Rockers. Continuing on, my next question will ask, “How was the term ?Rock and Roll’ created, and by who?” This may turn out to be a hard question to answer because I am sure there a multiple answers. “Has Rock become more or less popular since its inception?” will be my next question. For this question I will have to look for a survey or poll of some type and present its data. My final question will be, “How has the Music been changed over the years and who changed it?” This will also be an easy question, albeit a long answer. For that question I will be referring to Alternative and Grunge Rock, my preferred form of the music.
For my information I will mainly be using the internet. I also may get some of my answers from a dictionary or encyclopedia. My main sources on the internet will be the online encyclopedia at wikipedia.org, and anything I can find at google.com. I will also be asking my father who is more into classic rock, but a fan none the less. He has been listening to rock since the 60’s when he was about my age.
