Noise rock is a genre of alternative rock that emerged in the late 1970s and gained popularity in the 1980s. It is characterized by its abrasive sound, dissonant guitar noise, and unconventional song structures. Noise rock draws influences from various genres such as punk rock, post-punk, and experimental music.

The origins of noise rock can be traced back to bands like The Velvet Underground and The Stooges, who incorporated elements of distortion and feedback into their music. However, it was the New York-based band Sonic Youth that helped define the genre with their groundbreaking album "Daydream Nation" in 1988. Sonic Youth's use of alternate guitar tunings and unconventional playing techniques created a unique sonic landscape that became synonymous with noise rock.

Key characteristics of noise rock include heavily distorted guitars, aggressive drumming, and often chaotic vocals. The genre embraces dissonance and feedback as musical elements rather than flaws. Bands often experiment with unconventional song structures, incorporating improvisation and extended instrumental passages.

Over time, noise rock has evolved to incorporate elements from other genres such as shoegaze, post-hardcore, and metal. Bands like My Bloody Valentine and Swans have added layers of atmospheric textures to the genre while maintaining its aggressive edge. Other notable noise rock bands include Big Black, Jesus Lizard, Shellac, and Lightning Bolt.

One significant album associated with noise rock is "Psychocandy" by The Jesus and Mary Chain released in 1985. This album combined noisy guitars with pop melodies, creating a unique blend that influenced many future noise rock bands.

Noise rock's impact on the global music scene cannot be understated. Its abrasive sound challenged conventional notions of what constituted "good" music, inspiring countless musicians to push boundaries and experiment with new sounds. Many alternative rock bands in the 1990s were heavily influenced by noise rock's DIY ethos and disregard for traditional song structures.
