Definition of the noun Space rock
What does Space rock mean as a name of something?
- A subgenre of rock music, characterised by long psychedelic instrumental passages.
- Space rock is a subgenre of rock music; the term originally referred to a group of early, mostly British, 1970s progressive and psychedelic rock bands such as Hawkwind, Gong, and Pink Floyd, characterised by slow, lengthy instrumental passages dominated by electronic organs, synthesizers, experimental guitar work and science fiction or outer space-related lyrical themes, though it was later repurposed to refer to a series of late 1980s British alternative rock bands that drew from earlier influences to create a more ambient but still melodic form of pop music. The term was revived in the 21st century to refer to a new crop of bands including The Flowers of Hell, Comets on Fire, Flotation Toy Warning and Angels and Airwaves who diversely draw upon the ideas and sounds of both waves of the genre's founders.
