Acid rock music on the radio

Acid rock is a sub-genre of rock music that emerged in the late 1960s, characterized by a psychedelic sound and lyrics that often touched on themes of drug use and counterculture. Some of the most popular acid rock artists include The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Pink Floyd, and Grateful Dead.

Jimi Hendrix is often regarded as one of the greatest guitarists of all time and his innovative use of distortion and feedback influenced countless musicians in the acid rock genre and beyond. The Doors, led by charismatic frontman Jim Morrison, were known for their dark and poetic lyrics, while Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick became an iconic figure of the counterculture movement. Pink Floyd's use of experimental sounds and elaborate stage shows made them one of the most influential bands of the genre, while Grateful Dead's improvisational performances and loyal fan base helped to define the acid rock scene.
