Rock music is a broad genre of popular music that originated as " rock and roll" in the United States in the early 1950s, and developed into a range of different styles in the 1960s and later, particularly in the United Kingdom and in the United States. It has its roots in 1940s and 1950s rock and roll, a style which drew heavily on the genres of blues, rhythm and blues, and from country music. " God Save the Queen" ( alternatively " God Save the King", depending on the sex of the reigning monarch) is the national or royal anthem in a number of Commonwealth realms, their territories, and the British Crown dependencies.
The author of the tune is unknown, and it may originate in plainchant; but an attribution to the composer John Bull is sometimes made.
