We have great iconic images charting these genres from their early incarnations and artists right up to last nights hottest show.
Rock has its roots in the 1940s and 1950s with the merging of country music and the blues. Since then we've seen a countless number of spin offs covering a wealth of new styles and variations such as rock and roll, heavy metal, rockabilly, grunge, garage, math, punk and prog rock. Pop was also on the rise in the 50s, with the birth of the Teenager and subsequently the Teeny bopper.
