Origins l.jpg
Origins

Chinese Rock was started created by Cui Jian in 1984

He took his styles from Classic Rock in the U.S. and Britain, and combined it with Chinese folk melodies.


The northwest wind xibeifeng l.jpg
The Northwest Wind (XiBeiFeng)

Arguably the first style of Chinese rock, became popular in the 1980’s.

Combined Chinese Folk, Western tempos, aggressive bass-lines, and forceful singing.

Like Punk rock in its message, the singers and groups wrote songs about their dissatisfaction with their lives, their government, and so on.

Prison Songs (QiuGe)

Became popular in the late 1980’s along with XiBeiFeng, involved writing about time in prison.

Compared to XiBeiFeng, QiuGe was much slower and weepier, but had a stronger message.

Many “Prison Songs” used very vulgar language and bluntly attacked Chinese customs, again much like Punk rock.
