Boogie Rock

Boogie rock is a music genre which came out of the hard heavy blues rock of the late 1960s.[1] Largely designed for dance parties, it tends to feature a repetitive driving rhythm in place of instrumental experimentation found in the more progressive blues-rock bands of the period.


Boogie rockers concentrate on the groove, working a steady, chugging back beat, often in shuffle time.[2]

Notable bands

Bands include Canned Heat, ZZ Top, George Thorogood & The Destroyers, AC/DC, Vardis, Molly Hatchet, Status Quo,[3]Savoy Brown,[4]Grand Funk Railroad, Foghat,[5]Humble Pie,[6]Cactus,[6][7]The Doors, and The Rolling Stones.[8][9]
