How to use rock music in a sentence?

  1. Phil Lesh -LRB- bass -RRB-:

    The mainstream seems to be referencing '60s, '70s and '80s rock, rather than '30s, '40s, '50s blues and jazz and that sort of thing, our generation, the '60s 'jammers' let's say, our influences were people like Coltrane, and blues artists like Bobbie Bland, or Wilson Pickett or more of a roots-y thing. I think that young musicians today are more influenced by rock music. It's sort of narrowed down a little bit. That's not to say that it's not extremely expressive and diverse, but I don't sense a lot of roots involvement.

  2. Barack Obama:

  3. Dolly Parton:

    Well, I didn’t feel exactly right about that because my perception, and I think the perception of most of America — I just feel like that’s more for the people in rock music. I’ve been educated since then, saying that it’s more than that, but I still didn’t feel right about it. It kind of would be like putting AC/DC in the Country Music Hall of Fame. That just felt a little out of place for me.

  4. Joe Jonas:

    Our sound is definitely different from anything I think we've all done before, we've all really kind of agreed upon funk, dance and kind of rock music and that's where we pull our biggest inspiration.
