The first band on this list is the legendary Led Zeppelin. This band released hit after hit during the 70's, and continues to tour with its remaining members to this day. Their music has been ingrained in pop culture ever since it came out. Whether it be movies, TV, video games, or any other form of media, Led Zeppelin has stayed timeless.

They have a signature sound that no one else has yet to replicate, and no one else should even bother to.

The Beatles changed the course of music history. They influenced genres of music that were not even around when they were popular during the 60's. The Beatles consistently were changing their sound, which is one of the reasons they left such an impact.

From their early days of touring the UK in dirty clubs, to headlining concerts across the world, to releasing concept albums, to ending it with a final unannounced concert on top of a roof, The Beatles always left fans captivated. Decades later whenever people hear a Beatles song they recognize it almost instantly.

On the flip side of The Beatles coin was The Rolling Stones. They were another English band that consistently hit the top of the charts during the 60's and 70's. They were almost an alternative to the early days of The Beatles pop songs, and were good competition for them.

They managed to go from smooth love songs, to disco-inspired rock, to dark and moody sounds. The Stones have left an imprint on music that will never be replicated or outdone. The remaining members of the band are still touring all these years later.

Queen is a once in a lifetime band. They had a sound like no other, with a front-man like no other. They started with traditional rock and roll roots, but quickly started to develop their own unique sound. Releasing hit after hit in the 70's and 80's they made their mark on the music landscape for generations to come.

They have some of the most recognizable songs in the world, and even had a movie made about their story release last year to much fanfare. Queen will live on forever.
