Rock music is a broad genre of popular music that originated as " rock and roll " in the United States in the late s and early s, and developed into a range of different styles in the mids and later, particularly in the United States and the United Kingdom. Rock music also drew strongly from a number of other genres such as electric blues and folk , and incorporated influences from jazz , classical, and other musical styles. For instrumentation, rock has centered on the electric guitar, usually as part of a rock group with electric bass , drums, and one or more singers. Like pop music, lyrics often stress romantic love but also address a wide variety of other themes that are frequently social or political. By the late s " classic rock "  period, a number of distinct rock music subgenres had emerged, including hybrids like blues rock , folk rock , country rock , southern rock , raga rock , and jazz rock , many of which contributed to the development of psychedelic rock , which was influenced by the countercultural psychedelic and hippie scene. New genres that emerged included progressive rock , which extended the artistic elements, glam rock , which highlighted showmanship and visual style, and the diverse and enduring subgenre of heavy metal , which emphasized volume, power, and speed.
