Noise Rock is a Genre of music that derives from Post Punk and New Wave that developed during the 1980s. Musically, the genre uses typical rock instrumentation, however incorporates atonality and dissonance, and discards common songwriting conventions. Bands like The Velvet Underground, The Stooges, Captain Beefheart, Ornette Coleman, composers like Schoenberg, Stockhausen, and Cage, and Sonic Youth all helped pioneer and influence later bands within this field. Much of the guitar tones in Noise Rock rely on heavy feedback created by the guitar and its amplifier.
