Southern rock

Southern rock is a subgenre of rock music. It developed in the Southern United States from rock and roll, country music, and blues, and is focused generally on electric guitar and vocals. The sounds coming from obscure but now legendary recording studios such as Fame in Muscle Shoals, Alabama drip with southern charm wrapped within a hard, slightly twangy electric guitar.

    Kings of Leon is a very good band of southern rock despite their recent albums does not refer to its roots...if you listen "aha shake the heart break" or "youth and young manhood" you will see what is my point here man... people often do not recognize the quality of the new bands just because they are contemporary which is a pity

    To say there is nothing Southern in the musical DNA of Kings of Leon is absurd, in my opinion. They are clearly very strongly influenced by the both the geography and the personalities of their Southern upbringing among the impoverished pentecostal set. Anyone who can listen to an album such as Aha Shake Heartbreak and tell me it is not the product of a Southern band...I don't know. [2]

    ilivebymusic: I have to agree - they get lumped in here purely because they're from the South, don't they? But sonically they're a garage rock band (albeit one whose later arena rock has a southern tinge).

    Amberson-Baggett Band is a great new/old band from Alabama. Southern rock like 1978. If you like southern rock you should like them.
