More advanced. Contemporary pop music would have evolved more from jazz, swing, and bluegrass and would be based on modes rather than the boring format of >verse >chorus >verse >chorus >verse >chorus >bridge >chorus >chorus >chorus
>>59608241 That would probably happen too, but I think maybe a less religious and rural bluegrass sound would probably dominate, since it has a lot of drive, and often predictable structure, like rock. Bluegrass that was made to gel with the youth culture of the 50's would probably suck ass though.
How would other music styles like R&B, soul, funk, disco, house, hip-hop, etc. develop? There might not be a direct musical influence by rock music, at least it's not as the main influence, but there's still some influence.
>>59608493 There is no fucking way. You seriously think the most popular genre for the last 65 years being gone wouldn't affect all other genres to? Honestly, not just music would be completely different, I bet the world as a whole would be too.
>>59608575 >>59608596 R&B started before rock. Soul, funk and disco came from R&B House came from disco Hip hop came from Jamaican music which came from R&B mixed with traditional music + jazz drum breaks. Techno came from synthpop and funk via electro. Electronic music started before rock.
Sure, some influenced them a little, none needed rock to exist.
