German Rock is a genre of rock music that originated in Germany in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is characterized by its heavy use of synthesizers, distorted guitars, and electronic drums. It is often associated with the Krautrock movement, which was a reaction to the commercialization of rock music in the late 1960s. German Rock is often seen as a precursor to the New Wave and Post-Punk movements of the late 1970s and early 1980s. It is also heavily influenced by progressive rock, jazz, and classical music. Common themes in German Rock include political and social issues, as well as a focus on experimentation and improvisation.
