Psychedelic rock is a genre of rock music that emerged in the mid-1960s and is characterized by the use of distorted and experimental sounds, often created with the use of electronic effects. It is often associated with the psychedelic culture of the 1960s and 1970s, and is often seen as a precursor to the development of other genres such as progressive rock, punk rock, and heavy metal. Psychedelic rock often incorporates elements of other genres, such as blues, folk, and jazz, and is often characterized by its use of extended instrumental solos, improvisation, and surreal or abstract lyrics.
