Hard Rock
HARD ROCK is a loosely defined subgenre of rock music that began in the mid-1960s, with the garage , psychedelic and blues rock movements. It is typified by a heavy use of aggressive vocals, distorted electric guitars , bass guitar , drums , and often accompanied with keyboards . Hard rock developed into a major form of popular music in the 1970s, with bands such as The Who , Led Zeppelin , Queen , Black Sabbath , Deep Purple , Aerosmith , KISS , AC/DC and Van Halen . During the 1980s, some hard rock bands moved away from their hard rock roots and more towards pop rock , while others began to return to a hard rock sound. Established bands made a comeback in the mid-1980s and it reached a commercial peak in the 1980s, with glam metal bands like Bon Jovi and Def Leppard and the rawer sounds of Guns N\' Roses , which followed up with great success in the later part of that decade. Hard rock began losing popularity with the commercial success of R"> Drum notation for a back beat . Hard rock is a form of loud, aggressive rock music. The electric guitar is often emphasised, used with distortion and other effects, both as a rhythm instrument using repetitive riffs with a varying degree of complexity, and as a solo lead instrument
