Slovenian rock

Slovenian rock

Rock and roll is a musical genre from the United States, popularized worldwide beginning in the 1950s. Though rock had become popular earlier, it was not until the mid-1980s breakthrough of Laibach, who are now internationally renowned, that Slovenian rock became well-known. Other famous Slovenian rock bands include Hic et Nunc, whose 1998 tour of the United States brought even more international attention to Slovenian rock.

In the former Yugoslavia, Slovenia was the center for punk rock. The most famous representatives of this genre were Pankrti, Niet, Lublanski psi, Čao pičke, Via ofenziva, Otroci socializma and others.

Laibach are, without doubt, the most internationally famous Slovenian rock band. Other popular bands, largely unknown outside the country, include Devil Doll, Šank Rock, Big Foot Mama, Siddharta,Buldožer
