The globally popular and universally influential music genre of Rock has undergone a number of changes, transitions and alterations during its existence. Regardless of which traits spawned its numerous subgenres, most listeners have an idea of what basic characteristics define a rock song. Here’s a better question: What makes a rock song soulful?
Rock’n Roll is unequivocally the defiant, rebellious offspring of traditional soul music; it’s questioned authority, threw tantrums, talked back to its teachers and elders, and stormed out of rooms. Filled with and fueled by unquenchable passion, Rock both snarled at the floor in the darkest basements and smiled at the sky from the highest penthouses. Rock music cursed at itself in the mirror, yelled in its parents’ faces, aggressively stood up for those in need, and cried the hardest at funerals.
Creating soulful rock music is an art.
Over the next several weeks LiquidAE.com will reveal the most soulful rock singers of all time. We’re proud to announce Anthony Kiedis of Red Hot Chili Peppers made the list!
