The first sounds I remember hearing were the lovely tunes of The Beatles
and Elvis Presley
. Thanks to my parents I've been introduced to many different genres and eras of music, helping me explore and experience different emotions through them. Although I've grown to enjoy most of them, Rock
has always been my preference, being influenced by rhythm and blues
and country music
. With such a history and variety of sub-genres
, it seems impossible for me not to enjoy all of them. It gives a sense of freedom to us, a feeling that not all music can accomplish. In a way, it allows us to separate from reality to feel and act however we desire. It has no limits, no boundaries. Rock music is about expressing what you feel, when you feel it; even if what you feel is absolutely nothing.
Along the years the genre has developed so many different styles that shock and influence society in such a way
that could be divided in ages of rock.
Although I've had moments in my life where I listen to some sub genres more
, I mostly enjoy listening to the 20th century sounds of rock. Along with these, I appreciate the great
cultural impact it had, such as the different fashion trends it inspired. Rock music has been a part of my life since
I can recall my first memories of picking up a bottle of milk while singing to my Beatle's inspired song. Hopefully,
along the years, rock music will gain the strong influence in society it once possessed. Allowing them to find comfort
and freedom to express themselves in it, as earlier generations once had.
