Rock and metal usually feature electric guitars, electric bass, percussion, keyboards (electronic, piano, or organ), and, of course, vocals. There can be many other instruments in the mix: think sax with Bruce Springsteen, flutes in Jethro Tull, or bagpipes in Korn. Vocals and lyrics also play a huge role in rock and metal, be they screaming vocals or more soulful or fun-sounding lyrics.
