1970s decade of rock music.



















The dream is over. "With this phrase included inGod song, John Lennon, begins the decade of the70s in the rock music. After experiencing in the previous decade feast, the new did not look promising and from the very dawn examples of this were given.



Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, two symbols of the generation of 60 rock music, killed in 1970because of an overdose. During that same year, Paul McCartney officially announced the breakup of The Beatles, the group, as Lennon once said,was almost as popular as Jesus Christ. A year later, in 1971,
Jim Morrison, lead singer of The Doors and one of the main visual icons and sex symbols of the history of rock music, also dies of overdose.


With the bad omens, the first half of the decade, the rock music undergoes its mass and the establishment of visual paraphernalia on large scales at concerts. Led Zeppelin reign over the decade, and they will come afterThe Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd, with really impressive performances.

The heavy metal, hard rock and glam rock take over the taste of the masses throughout the first half of the decade, so bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Queen, Kiss, Bad Company live their moments of glory.

However, all that mass, glamor, visual paraphernalia and, in the case of progressive rock, virtuosity, alienateshis street roots rock and rebellion, so that young people no longer find an ID and a flag on it. It is then that in the New York suburbs arises punk, rock derived which incorporates the rebellion, along with a dose of anarchism,hedonism and politicization, making it one of the significant moments in the history of the genre.

The punk was born in New York engendered by the now legendary Ramones, but the English The Sex Pistolslead him to the end. Other notable significance bands are The Clash, The Damn, Generation X, The Misfits andBlack Flag. Thus, while the rock music was in a deep and disco reigned in the charts, the last great movementof the genus was present..
