Music Facts: Rock
Rock music originated from the American rock and roll sound of the late '40s and early '50s.
Rock has roots in Black rhythm and blues. Iconic Black artists like Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and Little Richard are among some of the founders of rock music.
Rock has since grown to encompass many styles and subgenres throughout the decades, including punk, garage rock, heavy metal, grunge, Britpop, indie rock, post-hardcore and emo, pop-punk, and many more.
Rock icons include Joan Jett, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Prince, Patti Smith, and Aerosmith.
