The most appreciated rock bands ever
If you are a rocker you must already know about these bands, but if you are new to this world then you need to keep reading and read some interesting, good and fun facts about the biggest names ever in the Rock band industry. Although heavy metal is what every person imagines when hearing rock, the heavy metal rock bands are not the best known ones, and certainly not the most popular ones.
Gold, silver and bronze
Many people would say that The Beatles are the best rock band ever, but they are not. The most famous rock band of all times is, according to many online surveys and professional music analysts Led Zeppelin. It is an English, of course it is English, I mean is there any famous band or actually good musician that was not formed in England. Their most famous albums are called simply Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II from 1969 and also a III and IV one that came out in each of the following years, Houses of the Holy from 1973 and Physical Graffiti from 1975. They all brought them huge commercial success. But they are not only the most famous rock group ever, they are also one of the most successful musician in the whole history of music.
The silver medal goes to The Beatles. The only reason they are not the gold medalists is that they were not long enough on the scene. Their fame was, for the time they were here - only 10 years, enormous and could not be compared to anything before and for many years later also. The Beatles came on the music scene 8 years earlier then Led Zeppelin. They were formed in Liverpool in 1960. We all know the names of the famous band members, so we won't bother to mention them here. I think it is a real shame that after only 10 years they broke apart. Rubber Soul from 1965, The Beatles, known as the White Album from 1968 and Abbey Road from 1969 were and still are one of the best albums of the 70s and even of all time.
Many people's most or least favorite rock band ever is Pink Floyd. They are on our number 3, getting the bronze medal. This band was also formed in England, but this time in London. If you ever go to London make sure to not only visit their museum but also take a London escort with you, the girls from http://www.escortguide.co.uk can tell you a lot about this beautiful city. Pink Floyd was, and still is quite famous from their first album on, as well as the other two from our list. Their progressive and psychedelic music made them stand out and became the reason for their success. Their albums The Dark Side of the Moon from 1973, Wish You Were Here from 1975, the beautiful album Animals from the year 1977, The Wall from 1979 and The Final Cut that came out in 1983 are their commercially and critically most successful albums. The amazing album called The Dark Side of the Moon is one of the best albums of all time. Pink Floyd entered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. Today you can see their symbol on many T-shirts all around the world.
Honorable mentions are: Queen, Metallica, AD/DC, The Rolling Stones, Guns N Roses and Nirvana.
