Are there still great rock bands today?

By Poppy Goldfarb

There have been a lot of rock bands over the years which completely changed music and had a major impact on the way many people lived their lives. These rock bands didn’t just create music for people to listen to, they created styles which people copied and ways of life which people followed. Some of these bands have had members unfortunately pass away since they were at their peak but nonetheless, they are still as well-known as they were.

Possibly the most influential band of all time is The Beatles as they completely changed the music scene in America. The Beatles broke into America when other British bands had not managed to previously and it opened the eyes of American music fans to the talented rock bands there were in the UK. The impact the Beatles had on the music scene ensured their status for many years to come.

The Rolling Stones followed on from The Beatles and reached a similar level in the 1970s when The Beatles split up. The Stones as they were often known became the greatest rock band in the world with their charismatic front man Mick Jagger. As well as The Stones there was Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Ramones and finally U2 who still have a huge following of young and old and still hold concerts for sell-out crowds today.

Although music has evolved a lot over the years there are still some very popular rock bands today which have huge fan bases and sell millions of records. There are lots of major bands around such as Linkin Park, Coldplay, The Kings of Leon and plenty of others and these bands perform at sold out venues around the world but it is unlikely that they will be remembered in the way that The Beatles or The Rolling Stones will.

To a certain extent yes great rock bands are a thing of the past, but only in the sense of bands which changed the music scene for ever. There are still some amazing rock bands today which are performing to crowds as big and selling as many records than those who went before them. The only difference is that today’s bands are unlikely to be remembered for as long as The Beatles and The Stones will.

For great band t shirts featuring rock legends and more, look no further.
