It is not so simple to determine the existence of temporal boundaries of this direction. It is believed that modern rock music MP3s came from the traditional African-American blues. And this is probably true. Equally important role in the formation of top rock music was played by folk. This has led to the emergence of many national schools within the genre.

In the history of this style one can clearly trace two stages of its development:

  1. Rock and roll (1954-1962).
  2. Rock itself (from 1962 to present).

Period of rock'n'roll

Many experts keep arguing about the first composition written in this style, whether it was played by one of famous rock music groups or by almost forgotten artists. And there is no consensus on this point. However, the following good rock music artists had the greatest influence on formation of the genre:

  • Bill Haley;
  • Fats Domino;
  • Bo Diddley;
  • Chuck Berry;
  • Little Richard.

It is worth mentioning that one of the most popular rock music hits was Bill Haley's Rock Around The Clock, which is now available for purchase at our site in FLAC format. It was covered by numerous performers, whose compositions you can also buy at our site.

Rock period

Over time, rock 'n' roll began to fade and the beginning of the 1960s was marked by the appearance of the best rock music groups that have had the greatest impact not only on the musical direction, but also on the development of a kind of subculture as a whole. These were The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

The Beatles at first looked like nice boys. Their compositions were full of romanticism. Many still consider and the main slogan of the group, a phrase from and the name of one of top rock music songs of the time –  All You Need Is Love John Lennon. And virtually all of the hippie movement passed under that slogan.

Unlike the Beatles, Rolling Stones proved to be more aggressive, which absolutely contrasts with well-established customs and traditions. Young rebels behaved very provocatively on stage. Their lyrics and music still remains clearly rebellious and provocative.

In 70s and 80s rock music artists developed the style of metal. It all started with Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, AC / DC, Aerosmith, Scorpions and many others. Today, metal has many areas that it is simply impossible to count them. Some combinations of genres are really unusual, for example, some artists even release western rock music albums.
