  Classic rock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Classic rock is similar to oldies radio in that the format is based upon music of the past, hence the playlist and artists featured are relatively stable in comparison to Top 40 or other contemporary formats which are based primarily on current releases.
The 1970s "arena rock" era is perhaps of the largest subset of the classic rock format, though in most cases artists are represented by only a few of their largest hits (often top 40 "crossover" singles) and a few popular album cuts.
Classic rock radio artists are almost exclusively white (African-American Jimi Hendrix being the primary exception) and predominantly male; little of the diverse funk, disco, soul, blues, or singer-songwriter styles that co-existed with rock music earlier, and that may have been played contemporaneously on AOR predecessors, survives in the classic rock format.
