List of Space Rock Bands and Artists   : Vote for your favorites.

Space rock is a rock music genre characterized by loose and lengthy song structures centred on instrumental textures that produce a hypnotic, otherworldly sound. It may feature reverberation-laden guitars, minimal drumming, languid vocals, and references to drug use. The term was initially used to describe the style of early 1970s progressive rock bands such as Hawkwind and Pink Floyd who explored a "cosmic" sound. However, it now refers to a "new generation of alternative/indie bands" drawing on psychedelic rock, ambient music, experimental/avant-garde music, krautrock, classical minimalism, and noise pop. This later style was pioneered in the mid-1980s by Spacemen 3, whose "drone-heavy" sound was avowedly inspired by and intended to accommodate drug use. By the 1990s, it became associated with shoegazing and post-rock.
