Music heavily influences our daily lives. This is an integral part of our culture and we can’t imagine ourselves living in the modern day era without any access to music. The music industry is teeming with music bands, artists, singers, composers and the likes that appear out of nowhere with a bright and promising future ahead.
With that said, the music industry falls under several categories such as pop, jazz, funk, hip hop, rock and more. American rock music is one of the cornerstones of the industry being one of the most notable genres which people still relate to even in this present day and age.
The foundation of American rock music stem from Rock and Roll in the late 1940s and early 1950s in the United States popularized by Elvis Presley who is regarded as the King of Rock and Roll. There is a very noteworthy difference when you listen to older American rock music compared to the newer tracks that are being produced today. This is because music just like technology continues to evolve with each generation and further iteration. Modern technology has paved the way in creating a new blend of music that was seem impossible to create before. This is quite apparent when you look at early beginnings of American rock music with blues rock, folk rock, country rock, progressive rock, glam rock and also to its newer counterparts such as alternative rock, metal, rap rock and digital electronic rock.
