History of Rock

Rock music has changed since it first began in the 60s. When it first began there wasn't as much guitar or screaming, it was just music that was a lot more upbeat then other music. But later Rock music started to get a lot deeper and its fans started getting stereotyped because of what they listened too. Rock stars started to do drugs and as an affect the fans started to do more drugs as well. Rock music has progressed a long way from when it first began and this link should help you understand the different bands and different scenes that those bands imposed.

Controversy in Rock

Some people believe that Rock and Roll is linked with the devil. This was a high belief from Christian families when rock first began. The link below is an argument on whether or not Rock music is linked to Satanism or not.
