Although the spectacle and accessability of arena rock has pretty much always been [[CriticProof popular enough with the public]], it isn't always [[DeadHorseGenre treated as kindly by music critics]], many of whom seem to regard it as HairMetal without any make-up on. The epithet "corporate rock" was originally applied to this type of music, with "Dad rock" also popping up sometime around the late '90s, due to the genre's popularity among aging Baby Boomers.

This was the dominant style of rock music for about ten years, starting in 1976 when Music/{{Boston}} released their first album and Music/PeterFrampton released ''Frampton Comes Alive!'' (the best-selling record of the year), and more or less ending in 1986 when Music/{{Journey}} released their last album for ten years and Music/BonJovi's ''Slippery When Wet'' put HairMetal on top of the mainstream rock pile. Listen to any "classic rock" radio station nowadays, and chances are arena rock is the genre you'll hear the most of.
