Most Americans understand that when it comes to the best types of music to listen to that rock and roll, or just rock or classic rock, is definitely one of the most popular genres in the world or at least in most western cultures, and that has a lot to do with the progression of music in the middle of the twentieth century and how a lot of really innovative artists came about and started rocking out on electric guitars, and I guess it kind of took a little while for technology to build up and allow for music to become more electronic and digital for rock and roll to come about, but when the technology did come in the 1960s and it started to evolve and get better and better in the 70s rock music evolved, and it definitely became a huge sensation really quickly when the most innovative artists of all time were in their hay days. Of course in today’s times rock music is still pretty consistent to what it used to be like back in the day, and I think that a lot of people have said that hip hop and electronic music has kind of in a way replaced rock music and that rock is dead, and maybe to some extent that is true because rock music may not be as popular as it used to be, especially with the younger generation today, but it still is pretty popular and will sell out huge venues all over the place. I think in today’s rock and roll age we see a lot of great bands like Umphrey’s McGee and String Cheese Incident and a lot of other jam bands who have stayed true to what some of the greatest rock bands of all time stood for, and of course these bands were greatly influenced by some of the best rock bands ever. So if you just so happen to be a younger person in America who really likes music, and if you particularly like rock music and maybe you are just looking for your next artist to get involved with and fall in love with then you have definitely come to the right place because this entire website and list of articles is all about talking about the best rock and roll bands ever, and what we are going to do is go into extreme detail about all of these bands so that we can have a better idea of who exactly is the best ever and what exactly has made them so impactful on our societies and what makes them so memorable even still today.
So the first person that we are going to talk about when it comes to the best rock and roll bands of all time isn’t actually a band but simply an individual who really paved the way for a lot of other people to follow him, and I think we simply have to just mention Elvis Presley first although he definitely was not the most talented musician on this list at all. The thing is that Elvis was not even that talented at all, but he started doing things a lot differently in an age when he was surrounded by country music and folk music he started to get people dancing and doing so through a rock and roll type of style, which is what has made him the King of Rock, and he will always be the King, so we definitely had to mention Elvis a little bit in these articles just to be sure that we got him in there, but now that we have gotten Elvis mentioned we can start really talking about the bands that came after him.
