Everyone has their own taste of music. Mine? Well, I like rock and country the most. But to choose out of those two, I would have to pick rock. It's just something about the way it's played. The drummer, the guitarist, the bassist, the singer, and the keyboard player (if there is one) are all equally needed, and shown throughout the music. The way it's all put together...and the songs! The songs are always true. Rock is like country music, it's just that the beat is speeded up.
My favorite rock bands? Well...I'll only write my top 5:
1. The Beatles
3. Led Zeppelin
5. The Black Keys
