By the 1970s, rock and roll was established as the major force in American music, eclipsing all other forms in popularity and record sales. The 1970s also saw rock fragment into a number of different directions, from the soft pop-rock of such musicians as the Eagles, James Taylor 1948and Joni Mitchell 1943 ; to the music of such hard rockers as Alice Cooper 1948Aerosmith, and Led Zeppelin ; to the punk see these entries under 1970s Music in volume 4 rock movement of such bands as the Ramones, the Sex Pistols see entry under 1970s Music in volume 4and the Clash; and towards the end of the decade, New Wave as practiced by Talking Heads, Blondie, and another Elvis Elvis Costello 1955.

These variety of styles proved that rock and roll could be many things to many people. Rock continued to grow as a commercial presence in the 1980s and 1990s.
