Rock loses the roll but gains amplitude and attitude.
The harder, edgier younger cousin of rock & roll, rock music is more commonly associated with white acts but was pioneered by Black artists. Musicians such as the inimitable Jimi Hendrix, Death, The Bad Brains, and more have influenced subgenres of rock music including psychedelic, punk, and metal.
The number one biggest game
It's when they gain the most fame
It's like a race to the top
Because they wanna be boss
They don't care who they step on
As long as they get along
