Rock music is a genre of popular music that originated as "rock and roll" in the United States in the 1950s, and developed into a range of different styles in the 1960s and later, particularly in the United Kingdom and the United States.
The term "classic rock" is often hard to define and, as such, has grown to include an increasingly large number of artists over the years.
Classic rock really started in the 1960s, as new genres emerged from the 1950s rockabilly and folk rock. Stemming from what is known as AOR, or album oriented rock, these groups were pioneers of their time, creating new kinds of hits that weren't made for Top 40 air play.
