  Cello rock - FoxyTunes
Cello rock is a subgenre of rock music characterized by the use of cellos (as well as sometimes also other bowed string instruments such as the violin and viola) as primary instruments, alongside or in place of more traditional rock instruments such as electric guitars, electric bass guitar, and drum set.
Cellos (often in groups of three or more) are used to create a sound, beat, and texture similar to that of familiar rock music, but distinctly reshaped by the unique timbres and more traditional genres of the cello (in particular) and other string instruments used.
The popularity of cello rock is steadily on the rise, as artists such as Metallica and Marilyn Manson lend support to the fledgling groups (Apocalyptica and Rasputina, respectively), though the genre is still somewhat of a cult phenomenon in the United States music scene.

 Rock and roll - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rock and roll (also spelled rock 'n' roll, especially in its first decade), is a genre of music that emerged as a defined musical style in the Southern United States in the 1950s, and quickly spread to the rest of the country, and the world (rhythm sample).
Early rock and roll combined elements of blues, boogie woogie, jazz, and rhythm and blues with influences from traditional Appalachian folk music, gospel, and especially country and western.
While increasingly it would became the fashion for rock and roll musicians to write their own material, many of the earliest rock and roll hits were covers of earlier rhythm and blues or blues songs.

The electric cello is a type of cello that relies on electronic amplification (rather than acoustic resonance) to produce sound.
Most electric cellos feature a traditional endpin and knee supports, but some are supported in other ways, such as by a tripod stand or a strap system that allows mobility while playing the instrument.
The electric cello has not yet achieved the status of the ubiquitous electric guitar, or even the widespread success of the electric violin, although rock groups such as Apocalyptica and Rasputina have helped to popularize the instrument.
