Best of Rock Music:

Best of Rock Music Consequence of Sound

Led Zeppelin :

Led Zeppelin Jimmy Paige, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham revolutionized rock and roll music in the late 60’s and early 70’s. With face melting guitar solos by Jimmy Paige, thumping blues bass riffs of Jones, the shrill piercing voice of Plant, and backing drums of Bonham, Led Zeppelin experimented the full range of what rock and roll music could be. Perhaps the best all time rock and roll group, Zeppelin put out nine full length albums in just over a ten year period.

The Doors:

The Doors Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger, and John Densmore helped pioneer the psychedelic rock movement of the early 60’s. Forming in 1965 in Los Angeles, Jim Morrison’s vocal stylings pushed The Doors into the spotlight, his dominating, wailing voice and insane stage antics championing their live performances. The Doors were once of the first rock and roll bands of the 60’s to experiment with keyboards and synthesizers as an instrumental part of their sound. Unfortunately The Doors tenure was cut short by the death of Jim Morrison at the age of 27

The Jimi Hendrix Experience:

The Jimi Hendrix Experience Jimi Hendrix, Noel Redding, and Mitch Mitchell formed one of the first great Brit psychedelic rock bands of the 60’s (the Beatles and Stones don’t truly fall under this category). Jimi Hendrix might be held as one the greatest guitarist of all time. A natural lefty who filliped his guitar over to play it right handed as lefty reinvented some of the ways people thought about playing the guitar. The Jimi Hendrix Experience was one of the first bands to execute the power trio of guitar, bass, and drums.

The Rolling Stones:

The Rolling Stones Mick Jagger and Keith Richards make up the bulk of the Rolling Stones, followed by other past musicians and musicians they currently tour with, Jagger and Richards are accredited with a majority of the creative genius of the Stones. The Rolling Stones were one of the first “stadium rock” bands to pack full houses of sports stadiums and actually have a great sound while doing it. The Stones “blue M&M” rider became something of famous legend, in which the rider was placed to ensure the venues cared enough about their music to get even the tiniest details correct before they would go out and perform.

Pink Floyd:

Pink Floyd Originally Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright, Pink Floyd added David Gilmour after Barrett’s mental breakdown from drug abuse. The British psychedelic rock band became famous for more progressive rock stylings, as well, Pink Floyd was one of the first rock bands to conceptualize their albums as one piece of art. All the songs on each album would lend themselves to a higher theme or idea, making their albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Animals, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall massively popular in the 70’s.


Queen Arguably one of the best stadium rock bands of all time, Queen’s ability to control audiences is legendary. Freddie Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon, and Roger Taylor formed in 1970 in London. A true rock band of the time, Queen rarely broke from rock and roll into psychedelic or other types of rock music, but Mercury’s voice powered them into the stratosphere of fame. Songs like “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “We Are the Champions”, and “We Will Rock You” became anthems for generations following Mercury’s death.


Nirvana Nirvana championed the 90’s punk rock movement. The Washington trio of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl immortalized the punk rock aesthetic of loud, in your face grunge rock music. They destroyed how people thought about rock and roll music in the 90’s, they played a harder more visceral type of rock and roll most had never heard before. Accompanied with brilliantly dark lyricism from Kurt Cobain, the group’s second major album Nevermind brought them unimaginable stardom, which ultimately drove Kurt to suicide at the age of 27.

The Who:

The Who One of the earlier bands of the British rock invasion consisting of Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle, and Kieth Moon, The Who became famous for a more mainstream type of rock and roll. Some critics now deem some of The Who’s music as hard rock or power pop, the band became famous for their classic guitar licks and power ballads.

The Beatles:

The Beatles Last but certainly not least, the arguably most influential band of all rock and roll, and perhaps the band that started rock and roll: The Beatles. Britain's first rock band consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison. The evolution of sound the Beatles produced was unheard of, from where they started to where they ended, with the amount of music they produced, a group such as the Beatles will never be heard of again. They transformed the genre of rock and roll music from early pop rock beginnings to the psychedelic transformations in the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Beatles (White Album). In only a mere ten year span, the Beatles put out 12 full length albums and a plethora of unreleased music still hangs around in the vaults.
