The height of rock music is encapsulated in 70s Classic Rock
It's fast, aggressive, powerful and energetic. But it can also be emotional and extremely poignant and personal. These incredible qualities allowed rock music to dominate the airwaves for decades, and it still is one of the most appreciated and beloved genres in the world of contemporary sounds. The fast, playful and forward-thinking sound of rock music re-defined a generation and helped break cultural barriers, bringing pop and black music under one roof. Although naysayers back in the 50s proclaimed that rock would only last a few months as a fleeting trend, it is still alive and it is getting LOUDER. In the 70s, some say that rock reached its highest point. For the first time, rock bands were playing big Stadiums, performing anthems that changed the definition of rock as we know it. By then, the genre branched out in many different directions, embodying many different influences and reaching the biggest crowds ever. Whether you are a fan of Pink Floyd or love grooving to some Blues-inspired Led Zeppelin hit, this gift mixtape is all about discovering the world's most resilient and eclectic music genre. Show your friends, family or loved ones that your love is strong as a rock! (pun intended)
