I was born in the 90's, but that never stopped my parents from playing music from the 1970s and 1980s around the house and in the car while I was growing up. Here are six classic rock bands that I still listen to today.
1. Pink Floyd
My Parents are huge Pink Floyd fans. My dad has even threatened to haunt me if I do not play Pink Floyd at his funeral. Not to mention that a Pink Floyd concert was the first concert I ever went to when I was twelve. Pink Floyd has been an extremely successful and popular band, starting in London in 1965.
Rush is another extremely popular rock band that began in 1968, and still continues to play music today. Rush is one of those bands that shows the gradual progression of music through different eras and decades that existed in the 20th century. Rush began in Toronto, Canada.The two of the original members of Rush, Alex Lifeson, and Geddy Lee are still members of the band.
3. The Who
The Who has always been one of my favorite bands. In elementary school, when we had to do a project on our favorite band, I chose to do mine on The Who. The Who began in England in 1964 and still play music today. I also remember having to come up with a band name for a music camp that I went to when I was little, and we chose to name after a spinoff of The Who, calling ourselves, The What. The Who are one of the bands that were known to destroy guitars and drums on stage, which is awesome because who doesn't love destroying stuff?
4. Led Zeppelin
6. The Beatles
Even though some of these bands no longer play music, they are still some of my favorite bands. Each of these bands are able to transcend age and generation gaps with their music. All of these bands hold a special place in my heart, and I am so thankful to my parents that I grew up listening to them.
