Rock (Rock N’ Roll or Rock Music) is a genre of music derived from American R&B and Country music. It came to popularity in the 1950’s in America.
Rock typically uses an A/B song structure, a 4/4 time signature with an emphasis on the back beat, and consists of electric guitar, electric bass, drums, and vocals (often with an emphasis on live performance).
