A Rundown of the Best Rock Bands of All Time, by Era by Connor R Sullivan

Music is one of the most talked about things in the world. Most people say that they would be lost without their iPod or other portable music player and music generally just makes things more interesting. One of the most popular forms of music in the world currently is rock and roll. Rock has developed a lot over the ages and is now very different from when it started. Most musicians would say that they are influenced by or get their start in classical music. Different things involved in classical music include pedal extenders for the piano, an adjustable piano bench and sheet music storage. In each decade in the twentieth century there was different rock and roll groups that helped turn the genre into what it is now.

When the genre was first starting out the only really important band in rock and roll was The Beatles. The Beatles were the band who started what was known as the British Invasion and were immediately a pop culture phenomenon. Almost everyone wanted to see the young men from England play their new brand of music that had not been heard before in America. The Beatles smashed record sales for their records and sold out essentially every venue in which they went to play. The style of music that they played mixed American R&B with pop lyrics and guitar, something that was previously unheard of.

In the 1970s one of the most famous rock acts was The Who. The band called, "The Who" was also from England and carried on the legacy that the Beatles had left behind. While playing the same general style of music as some other rockers from the previous decade, The Who brought a never before heard anger and angst to the stage in their lyrics, as evidenced by songs such as "Won't Get Fooled Again". In this song the speaker mentions that he feels all politicians are essentially the same and that he will not get fooled again by a political candidate's false promises.

Fast forward to the 1990s and one of the undoubted kings of the rock genre were Blink 182. This band was formed in California and wrote many songs about partying and generally being a young person and the struggles that some teens deal with. The group can be lumped into the general genre of punk, and to go along with that genre come the inevitable punk look complete with baggy pants, lots of tattoos and piercings and crazy hair styles. The band still plays together after a brief hiatus and took a comeback tour of the country in the summer of 2009 which drew massive crowds in every city they stopped in.

Rock and roll has evolved greatly over the past forty or fifty years and there are certainly more developments to come for the genre as musicians innovate even more. Because of the demand for music it is certain that soon enough there will be a new super group in rock and roll to take over the mantle as the most famous band in America.

Connor R Sullivan researched purchasing some pedal extenders for his piano. He ordered online an adjustable piano bench so his young children can reach the piano keys when playing.
