Talking about the greatest rock bands of all times would go incomplete without mentioning The Beatles. They were extremely popular in their days and till date people continue to listen and dance to their songs. Band members John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, influenced the world of rock ‘n’ roll. They created music that was aimed at changing the world or in the least touching people’s hearts.

The Rolling Stones with members Brian Jones, Mick Jagger, Ian Stewart, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman, however managed to outdo The Beatles. They were honored with the title of “World’s Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band” and held on to the title of the next thirty years. By 1993, Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts were the only remaining original members.

The music industry will never forget the legends of rock like U2, The Grateful Dead, Velvet Underground, Bob Marley and the Wailers, The Ramones, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. Till date, rock fans have posters of these legends hanging all over the rooms and continue to listen to their music. Today there are so many genres of rock music and newer ones come up each day.
