    Rock n’ Roll is more like elvis
    Rock is a very broad genre.

    early rock? jimmy hendrix!

    Rock’n roll, the old style, was filled with guitar solos and most of the songs were ballads! nowadays they are all mostly electronic and lack the passion in their music! The rock’n roll freedom is kinda gone!

  3. Personally, I think rock n roll and rock are pretty much the same thing. Rock n roll refers more to the beginnings of rock. In the late 60′s, early 70′s it just kind of got shortened to rock.

    A good song to exemplify early rock and roll?
    Let me name a few….
    Johnny B. Goode
    Great Balls of Fire
    The Great Pretender (for the softer side of rock)
    Good Golly Miss Molly

    Early rock n roll was a more simple tune. Very basic. Kind of innocent (but not really…example…Good Golly Miss Molly Sure like to ball)
    Experimentation with sound and lyrics graduated rock n roll into rock. Bands like The Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, Led Zepplin, all took the music a step further.

  4. Literally, Rock “N’ Roll, is like Chuck Berry, Elvis.etc ( especially from the 50s)
    And Rock is like everything after, from Beatles, to Rolling Stones, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, etc.

    But don’t get confused with the term of rock n roll, because some artists, people use the term rock n roll to mean rock. ( they dont mean the 50s rock).
