Various Artists 60's Beat [Crimson]. While the band has undergone several lineup changes, its music is quite relevant today and has been a major influence on bands like Rush, Dream Theater and Tool. It took some time for Priest to get its due as a heavy metal force, but 's " British Steel " was an album that left a lasting impression on bands like Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax. Rob Halford's operatic voice is one of the most recognizable in all of heavy metal and hard rock.
Though the band enjoyed more success into the s, it was never able to consistently sustain it. Yet in the annals of English hard rock and heavy metal, Priest is an important figure. Progressive rock and England, or the entire U. The Moody Blues were a major part of that movement but also shined by incorporating elements of LP) and psychedelic rock, with a touch of pop.
The family tree of musicians and bands that sprouted from Deep Purple is truly amazing. Though the dynamic voice of Ian Gillan and the raunchiness guitar of Ritchie Blackmore paced the band's most commercially successful period of the early s. The group, which spawned the likes of David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes, is one of the true pioneers of the hard rock and heavy metal sound. When the two were on, in sync, relatively sober and not totally at each other's throats, Oasis was tough to beat.
And when the the tension was high, the band still delivered some of the best music of the s. Almost 45 years after forming, Maiden is still packing venues as was evident by 's Legacy of the Beast Tour.
One of the main forces within the British wave of heavy metal, Maiden's themes of world history, religion and fantasy continue to play well to a new generation of rockers who are still pumping their fists to classics like "The Number of the Beast," "Run to the Hills" and "2 Minutes to Midnight.
Yet Genesis should probably be credited for adapting to the times while still not losing its creativity — not to mention, the group produced two of the most recognizable vocalists ever in Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins. The melodic, often melancholy, tunes of Robert Smith and the boys have been on display and praised for more than 40 years.
When it comes to the alternative, and especially goth or post-punk rock sound of England, The Cure is the trendsetter and has not stopped doing it well — throughout the world. From roughly to aboutthere was arguably no hotter band on the planet than Radiohead. It got to the point that fans worldwide could not wait to hear what was next from Thom Yorke and Co.
Radiohead went from a true rock outfit to excelling within the alternative and art rock scenes while also not being afraid to throw in some electronica. There is not a better run of albums with "The Bends"" OK Computer""Kid A" and "Amnesiac" in alternative rock — or any genre — history. Even today, Radiohead still has a major influence on the music scene.
While the Sex Pistols exuded the punk image, The Clash was also a major player in that overall scene in the U. Though singer Joe Strummer was born in Turkey, he was schooled in England from age 9, thus qualifying him enough for this list.
The band meshed the pop-rock feel of the British invasion, with a bluesy tint that offered a unique Volume Three (Vinyl that turned on the likes of the Ramones, The Doors, Van Halen and Oasis.
Under the blanket of rock 'n' roll music, lies heavy metal. It's generally acknowledged that the first true heavy metal band was Black Sabbath. Iommi's memorable riffs coupled with Osbourne's distinctive voice spewing generally dark lyrics made Sabbath turn the rock world in its ears — and we're still grateful for it all. The influence that the Floyd has had on bands that have come after is truly incredible.
Whether psychedelic rock, progressive rock, alternative rock and even some aspects of metal, Pink Floyd has been able to leave its mark with bands like Queensryche, Alice in Chains, Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam — just to name a few.
The band's smash, " The Dark Side of the Moonhas spent more than weeks on the Billboard charts over the years. Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend are still consistently playing under The Who name and not just doing the classics. However, songs like " Baba O'Riley " and "My Generation" still stand up well and have become loved by a whole new generation of fans.
The Who is also known as one of the great conceptional bands of all time, thanks to operatic rock gems "Tommy" and "Quadrophenia. While Black Sabbath and Deep Purple also influenced a hard, guitar-driven sound that opened the door for the heavy Volume Three (Vinyl movement, LP), Zeppelin did it better than anybody.
Paced by Robert Plant's incredible range, Jimmy Page's innovative guitar work and John Bonham's hard-working style behind the drum kit, Zeppelin's blues-tinged hard rock has that time-tested classic sound that remains a staple to those who still listen to music on the radio.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about the Stones is the band's ridiculous longevity. This summer, Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie, all well into their 70s, packed stadiums playing the hits that have influenced generations of musicians — and still do. And that is fitting since the band itself was influenced by the blues, gospel and country and continues to branch out while still pressing on.
Meanwhile, there were cover versions of "She's Not There" by the Ventures, Vanilla Fudge, and Orpheus, each in their individual styles. Blunstone went solo under the pseudonym Neil MacArthur and hit the British Top 40 in with a string-filled remake of "She's Not There" that continued to demonstrate its appeal beyond the original recording.
