Rock music has its roots in 1940s and 1950s rock n roll and rockabilly, which evolved from blues, country music and other influences.
In its purest form, Rock & Roll has three chords, a strong, insistent back beat, and a catchy melody.
In the late 1960s, rock music was blended with folk music to create folk rock, blues to create blues-rock and with jazz, to create jazz-rock fusion, and without a time signature to create psychedelic rock.
in the 1970s, rock developed a number of subgenres, such as soft rock, heavy metal, hard rock, progressive rock, and punk rock. Rock subgenres that emerged in the 1980s included synthpop, hardcore punk and alternative rock. In the 1990s, rock subgenres included grunge, Britpop, indie rock, and nu metal.
