Rock is known for its energy and aggression but many love songs also come from this genre. Rock music is that versatile. Surprisingly, they are not always about losing someone or being betrayed in love. They show just as many shades of love as any other music genre. Not just love, rock music has a sound for every expression and feeling. But some people get confused between pop and rock, and I am one of them. So if you are a 'rock purist' and think any of these songs do not exactly belong to the said genre, I apologize in advance. Also, this is a personal list and you may have different views.
