Stoner rock is a subgenre of rock music that emerged in the late 1980s and early 1990s, characterized by its heavy, fuzzy guitar riffs, slow to mid-tempo grooves, and a strong influence from psychedelic and blues rock. It is often associated with themes of marijuana use and a laid-back, hazy atmosphere.

The origins of stoner rock can be traced back to bands like Kyuss and Sleep, who are considered pioneers of the genre. Kyuss' 1992 album "Blues for the Red Sun" is often regarded as one of the definitive stoner rock albums. Sleep's 1992 release "Sleep's Holy Mountain" also played a crucial role in shaping the genre with its massive sound and droning riffs.

Key characteristics of stoner rock include heavily distorted guitars with downtuned or dropped tunings, thick bass lines that provide a powerful foundation, repetitive drum patterns with an emphasis on groove, and often extended instrumental passages. The vocals in stoner rock can vary from melodic singing to gritty shouts or even growls.

Over time, stoner rock has evolved and diversified. Various subgenres have emerged such as desert rock, which focuses on the desert imagery and atmosphere; sludge metal, which incorporates elements of doom metal; and psychedelic rock, which emphasizes trippy effects and mind-altering sounds.

Significant artists within the stoner rock genre include Monster Magnet, Fu Manchu, Electric Wizard, Queens of the Stone Age, and Orange Goblin. Monster Magnet's 1998 album "Powertrip" achieved commercial success and introduced stoner rock to a wider audience.
