From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Boogie rock is a style of blues rock music that developed in the late 1960s.[1] Its key feature is a repetitive driving rhythm, which emphasizes the groove.[1] Boogie rock is distinct from the piano-driven boogie-woogie music popular during the 1920s to 1940s,[2] which was adapted for many early rock and roll and rockabilly songs.[3]

In 1948, American blues artist John Lee Hooker recorded "Boogie Chillen'", an urban electric blues tune derived from early North Mississippi Hill country blues.[2] Musicologist Robert Palmer notes "Hooker wasn't copying piano boogie. He was playing something else—a rocking one-chord ostinato with accents that fell fractionally ahead of the beat."[4] By contrast Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith's popular 1945 instrumental "Guitar Boogie", later dubbed a "hillbilly boogie", was based on the earlier style.[5]

Hooker's "repeated monochord riff" on guitar was adapted by the American rock group Canned Heat for "Fried Hockey Boogie", first released in 1968 on their Boogie with Canned Heat album.[6] Other artists soon followed, with Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky" (1969, Spirit in the Sky ) and ZZ Top's "La Grange" (1973, Tres Hombres) being two of the more popular songs in the style.[6]

Malcolm Young explained its influence on AC/DC:

The pub scene ... It was like, "Give us a boogie! Give us a boogie!" So everybody played a boogie ... [W]e used to like Canned Heat from way back, and we would just jam on their stuff, around their ideas, at the time, and we'd put a bit of boogie into our own material.[7]
