National Rock Music Day

Rock music was one of the first major genres ever created, pushing technological boundaries and contributing to social revolutions – making it one of the most beloved forms. Rock’s timeless appeal stems from its soulful sound and exhilarating energy.

Today is National Rock Music Day; let’s celebrate by learning more about this awesome musical genre and exploring some of its greatest musicians and bands ever to take to the stage!

Women Rock! Day

Origins of International Women’s Day can be traced back to 1987, when Aretha Franklin became the inaugural woman honored with induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This event signaled the start of an initiative designed to recognize and honor female musicians who defied norms while having an impactful musical career; additionally it highlighted a need for greater recognition within an industry traditionally considered male-dominated.

Women Rock! Day honors those women who helped pave the way for future female musicians, by breaking into spaces traditionally occupied by men and thriving. From Aretha Franklin’s blues-tinged soulful music, through punk rocker The Runaways and Courtney Love and Hole’s hard-edged grunge sound and hard-edged grunge created by Courtney Love and Hole; these female rockers were some of the most influential artists of their eras.

Not only is Rock Music Day an opportunity to recognize these pioneering women of rock, but it is also a day dedicated to encouraging young girls from diverse backgrounds to pursue music careers. Rock began as an outlet to push technological limits and break social norms – it remains relevant today through inspiring new generations of artists and fans who come together across generations and cultures through music.

Women Rock! Day can be easily celebrated through several simple actions. One way is listening to music created by women – perhaps start by listening to female inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or looking through lists of albums from female artists. Or you could celebrate by reading a book or watching a documentary on this topic!

Make the day more interactive by curating a playlist of women rockers. Choose from country (Dolly Parton), rap (Missy Elliott or Cardi B), 90’s grunge (Hellembrand or Hole), and 90’s alternative artists – the more diverse your selection, the greater its impact in showing support for talented female musicians! Share this playlist with others so they can also appreciate its music!
