Transcript of 70's music

The 70's music
Punk Rock
A more upbeat and harsher version of the 60's which heavy guitar riffs motivated those who were still upset about the state of their country.
In the 1970's, rock had a lot of variations such as hard rock, new wave, soft pop and the most important, progressive rock.
The end of Disco
The audience started seeing how commercialized disco was, making them angry, since they were fighting against that years before.
Disco Fever
Tired of all the fighting, people found safety in dancing, creating the disco movement.
This way, they would vent their frustrations through dancing, therefore, making disco the definition of the decade.
The 1970's were an important decade for the people to express themselves the best way they could.
Despite having the opportunity to pick which of the many styles of music they loved and identified themselves with the most, they could also show who they were, by grabbing the latest fashion ideas and making them their own.

The 1970's
A bridge from the
of the 60's and the happy songs from the 80's was created during this decade.
The 70's were unique because each style of music had different influence on people.
"Music was our way of expression. Some music showed how people felt about the Vietnam wars, other types were against conformity."
Even though this genre was short-lived, some hits from that decade are still succeeding today, such as:
The Hustle
by Van McCoy;
Stayin Alive
by Bee Gees;
I Will Survive
by Gloria Gaynor;
by Village People.
Many youths were seen supporting 'Disco Sucks'
t-shirts in many protests, claiming that there was a lack of significance in the music
Usually these songs were about the ills of society and tried to persuade people to rebel against these problems.
One of the bands that gave punk rock its true meaning, were the American Ramones. This group of brothers were sometimes addressed as the 'punk beatles'.
I Wanna Be Sedated
' is their most popular song and the song means that the society they're living in is so messed up that the only way to get through life is to be sedated.
The decade started with the same bands created in the 60's taking over the music industry such as The Rolling Stones, Queen, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and many others.
Progressive Rock
This type of music combined rock music with classical music or opera to create a hybrid style. The songs were often longer and bands tended to be more spontaneous and experimental while they were playing live. Their albums were usually conceptual, meaning they followed a theme throughout the album.
Pink Floyd were the most famous band to do that and their album 'The Wall' explores the loneliness one feel because of the 'walls' they build up around them.
The fashion
The 70's was a decade where expressing yourself meant everything. Teens would dress for themselves and not for the others. They'd get the inspiration from the most popular artists on the charts and mix it with their unique fashion sense.
Bell-bottoms, mini skirts, jumpsuits, platform heels, sneakers, puffer vests,etc...were all apart of the decade's fashion.
