Rock music is a genre of popular music that originated as “rock and roll”
in the United States in the 1950s, and developed into a range of different styles in the 1960s and later, particularly in the United Kingdom and the United States.
It has its roots in 1940s’ and 1950s’ rock and roll, itself heavily influenced by blues, rhythm and blues and country music. Rock music also drew strongly on a number of other genres such as electric blues and folk, and incorporated influences from jazz, classical and other musical sources.
Musically, rock has centered on the electric guitar,
usually as part of a rock group with electric bass guitar and drums. Typically, rock is song-based music usually with a 4/4 time signature using a verse-chorus form, but the genre has become extremely diverse. Like pop music, lyrics often stress romantic love but also address a wide variety of other themes that are frequently social or political in emphasis.
Существует точка зрения, разделяемая большим числом экспертов, что рок-музыка — это не просто один из жанров музыки, но и особый социокультурный феномен второй половины XX столетия, породивший свою субкультуру.
Рок — это, с одной стороны, рупор молодёжи, музыкальное воплощение раздирающих её противоречивых настроений, конфликта с общепринятыми нормами.
С другой стороны, рок — один из инструментов шоу-бизнеса, направленный на коммерческую прибыль в индустрии развлечений. Эта двойная природа и обусловливает противоречия, «пилообразность» развития жанра. По сути дела, вся история рока состоит из схожих циклов, в начале каждого из которых — бунт, протест, рождение новых стилей и новых ценностей, возникновение групп и исполнителей-основоположников стиля -1955, 1967, 1977, …, а затем — постепенный процесс «приручения», коммерциализации, порой — упрощения, возникновения вторичных рок-групп.
