ock music is a genre of popular music that developed during and after the 1960s, particularly in the United Kingdom and the United States. It has its roots in 1940s and 1950s rock and roll, itself heavily influenced by rhythm and blues and country music. Rock music also drew strongly on a number of other genres such as blues and folk, and incorporated influences from jazz, classical and other musical sources. Musically, rock has centred around the electric guitar, usually as part of a rock group with bass guitar and drums. Typically, rock is song-based music

with a 4/4 beat utilizing a verse-chorus form, but the genre has become extremely diverse and common musical characteristics are difficult to define. ‚This beat is the soundtrack to my life. It‘s one of the things that made me who i am today. I listen to music all day. When I get up, the first thing I do, is to start up my macbook and play a song.When i‘m leaving the house, my ipod is already running. Thats why, when I had to invent a logo and name for my own brand, I knew I had to put a part of Rock ‘n Roll in there. This is the first reason why the brand is named nroll.‘

kateboarding was probably born sometime in the late 1940s or early 1950s when surfers in California wanted something to surf when the waves were flat. No one knows who made the first board. It seems that several people came up with similar ideas at around the same time. These first skateboarders started with wooden boxes or boards with roller skate wheels attached to the bottom. The boxes turned into planks, and eventually companies were producing decks of pressed layers of wood. ‘That‘s where it started 10 years ago. I got a skateboard for my birthday. A low-quality board made out of

plastic and with giant wheels on it. As soon as I coud barely stand on it, I instantly felt the love. I quit all other sports I did at that time and started to skate every day. After a few years I got my first pc and started to spend more time exploring the Internet. Thats when me and my board lost contact. But hen we met up again, a year ago, it was better than ever before. Now I skate whenever I can. I love the feeling just to roll down the street. Thats why, when I had to invent a logo and a name for my own brand, I knew I had to put a part of Skateboarding in there. This is the second reason the brand is named nroll.‘
