Classic rock Information

Classic rock was originally conceived as a radio station programming format which evolved from the album oriented rock format in the early-1980s. In the United States, this rock music format now features a large playlist of songs ranging from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s, with some stations including a limited number of current releases.

The classic rock stations recreate the sound of Album Oriented Rock stations of the 60s-90s and appeal mainly to adults, rather than teenagers. Some classic-rock stations also play a limited number of current releases which are stylistically consistent with the station's sound, such as fitting the vibe of the other rock music, or from established classic rock core artists that are still producing new albums.

Classic Rock in recent years has been expanded to include glam metal and progressive rock acts. These artists are often put on "late classic rock" stations while the more traditional artists are put on "early classic rock" stations. Alternative band Bowling For Soup reacted to this in their song 1985, asking why Motley Crue has become classic rock.
