    Hard rock is a term used to describe a range of music, usually played loudly using electric guitar, bass, drums, and vocals. The genre sits between the original rock bands of the 1960s, such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, and the sound of heavy metal, as originated by Black Sabbath. It also incorporates earlier influences of the blues and has developed over the years into various incarnations that cover the likes of glam and grunge, amongst others.

    Hard Rock's roots

    Hard rock's origins are more evident in underground US garage and psych bands of the sixties than their more popular UK counterparts until The Who brought the distorted noise to a broader audience. Later, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin's amplified repetitive riffs gained worldwide appeal. These guitar trademarks mixed with heavy drums and rasping vocals epitomize the sound of hard rock.

    During the first decade of its use, hard rock was considered a desirable music type, and its fans developed a noticeable style of long hair and skinny trousers. However, the genre became derisory from the late 1970s and through the 1980s. While using similar methods, the arrival of punk was seen to dismiss the validity of existing rock acts such as Pink Floyd. Despite this, hard rock continued to grow in popularity amongst the public in America and Europe, with AC/DC, Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses, and Bon Jovi achieving colossal chart success and stadium appeal.

    New wave of hard rock from Seattle

    In the 1990s, the rise of grunge music in America, spearheaded by Nirvana, brought a new version of hard rock that overtook its unfashionable predecessors. Subsequent movements in electronic music and technological advancements meant that hard rock as a genre has since been considered traditional and old-fashioned. Yet, it has remained a constant attraction throughout the music world, whether mixing with dance and hip hop, sticking with its roots, or developing exciting new bands like The White Stripes and Arctic Monkeys.

    Bright future for hard rock

    Now, what constitutes hard rock can cross many boundaries, from stadium pop to experimental metal and every crossover in between. Still, ultimately it stays happily homed in its traditions of rhythmic drums, pounding bass, riffing guitars, and screaming vocals. For this, hard rock's popularity will live long into the future.
