The year 2017 was certainly a stupendous year for rock fans. Bands and artists from various subgenres in rock found their groove to get noticed with their brand of music.

The lyrical material on albums of several rock bands and rock artists has been top notch. A number of new rock bands have made pathways for a new sound in the realms of rock music.

That says a lot about the diverse musical influences that have emerged in a year where experimental sounds reigned supreme.

While mainstream rock songs by rock bands and artists did top the charts, it was non-mainstream rock genres that took the rock world by surprise. A number of rock songs from non-mainstream rock genres became cult hits globally. This is an indication that the roots of music are no longer held in mainstream. A number of rock albums and rock songs gave ‘epic sound’ a new meaning. There’s no longer a typical sound in the realms of rock. The musical influences of the current crop of musicians are rather diverse and this shows aesthetically in their songwriting and compositions.

Also, a number of bands and artists have released albums independently. 2017 witnessed the indie music scene get bigger globally. A number of new indie rock bands and heavy metal bands found their space in new forms of musical soundscapes rooted in rock. A number of experimental rock songs became underground hits.

Rock songs with thought-provoking lyrics both in mainstream and non-mainstream genres connected with listeners.
