Top 10 Things that are Common in Rock Music

Things that you might commonly hear in some genres of Rock. Because all Rock Genres are kind of different in their own way.

The Top Ten

1 Guitar Solos

They might be short, or long solos but again varies on the rock band/ artist you're listening to. - CaptainMowzker

My favorite guitar solo is he one at the end of Hotel California by the Eagles.

Pow wow! come on dudey patooty heck yeah boi!

It’s not common in punk rock though or pop rock. But I hear it in other subgenre of rock.

2 Guitar Riffs

It's common because it's usually one of the first things you'll hear in a Rock song. - CaptainMowzker

Rock songs are based around guitar riffs most of the time to be honest - NightmareCinema

The Sunshine of your love and Smoke on the water guitar riffs are one of the best guitar riffs in my opinion yet iconic.- Kevinsidis
