Guitars, bass and drums… That’s your basic recipe right there. Throw in some keyboards and synths and you’re rocking a new style. Or how about some organ and harmonica and you’re channeling the blues… Whatever your vibe, rock music remains a favourite with video and content producers. Let’s say you’re working on a video and it needs some raw energy and power. Perhaps your project focuses on thrilling action or epic adventure. Maybe it’s fast-paced racing and muscle cars. Edge-of-your-seat sporting moments and highlights also comes to mind. You name it. One genre of music that’s always a winner with these topics is… rock! From catchy guitar riffs with driving bass and foot tapping drums, to the heavier stuff featuring big, in-your-face distorted guitars and pounding rhythm sections, rock music can certainly convey a certain kind of mood and catch the attention of your audience. After all, that is what you’re looking to achieve, right?
Here are some cool examples of rock music used in videos:
Rock music takes many forms – blues rock, alternative rock, indie rock, pop rock, hard rock – there are loads more and the genre is still evolving today. This popular form of music has attitude. It can inspire. It can motivate. It can make you feel like breaking free from the day-to-day routines that are getting you down. What’s better than hitting the open road in your car and cranking up that stereo? You know the feeling!
