Genre Description

One of the more general genres, sometimes there's just a need for a simple descriptor, and "Rock" is that, more often than not. Created through a combination of country and blues, a "rock band" is typically signified by the two guitars, bass and drums setup, with lots of energy and loudness. Distortion is often used. Rock is a genre that hasn't really died, in fact there are just as many practicioners of the genre as there has ever been; it has just been so finely criticized that the simple word, "rock," does not seem to be a good enough description anymore. In place are a wide variety of subgenres and styles of the popular trend that stretch from the manic Industrial Metal to the subtle Singer/Songwriter.

Rock and roll was a musical genre from the second half of 20th century Earth, distinguished by a contempt for authority and status quo. It was also quite common on Simpson's Planet. However, unlike Earth, people who wanted to become successful rock and roll performers on Simpson's Planet tended to attend university, sometimes even to a doctorate level. There was also several types of rock and roll. (RIS Bouteina: "Fundraiser")
