Time to Follow

Social media became a game-changer for fans. Before the internet, all we could do was subscribe to magazines to know more about our favorite rock bands, what’s keeping them busy, where they’re headed next, and any news about future releases. But now, we only need to sign up to Instagram or Twitter, follow their verified accounts and voila! We get the latest updates, photos, videos, and basically snippets of their daily lives.

Here are ten bands you should definitely follow on social media.

1. The Rolling Stones

One of the few bands from the ’60s who have remained relevant today, they have also stayed active online throughout the pandemic – releasing new music and more recently, they announced that they’re launching a “world exclusive” flagship store in London this September.

2. The Beatles

Take a trip down memory lane as The Beatles share clips of their live performances along with interesting facts on the caption. They also post photos of the band making music in the ’60s or just lounging around.

3. Def Leppard

Their 2020 tour schedule was postponed because of the coronavirus but they still keep on entertaining and interacting with fans. Aside from their legendary gigs, they also like to repost photos of fans recreating their most iconic looks.

4. Led Zeppelin

Nothing says “I’M A LED ZEPPELIN FAN” better than apparel from the band’s own store. And it’s for a good cause too because for some of the designs, 100% of the profits will go to charities.

5. Foo Fighters

Some of the coolest rockstars on the planet, they don’t just post about music but also relevant topics which isn’t surprising because frontman Dave Grohl never shied away from voicing his opinion whether it’s about politics or current events.

6. Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd’s Instagram profile is well-curated because it’s not just a bunch of random photos but a mix of news clippings, old tickets, behind-the-scenes photos, and gig posters. It takes you back to the time when they dominated the airwaves and became one of the biggest rock acts of all time.

7. Metallica

Metallica has also kept an active online presence for the past few months. It’s not just on Instagram but most especially on YouTube where they stream past concerts. It’s definitely a treat for fans.

#KISSTORY August 18, 1974 – the #KISS Hotter Than Hell album photo shoot with photographer Norman Seeff takes place in Los Angeles.

A post shared by KISS (@kissonline) on

They had a lot of plans this year but all of those have been put on hold. But they constantly share photos from fans – tattoos, makeup looks, and even birthday cakes. It’s a simple but wonderful gesture to stay connected with the KISS Army.

9. Aerosmith

They had to move the dates of their shows so we don’t mind settling for the next best thing – videos of their performances in The Midnight Special and MTV Unplugged.

10. Guns N’ Roses

Their massive Not in This Lifetime… Tour continues but like everyone else on this list, the trek has been affected by the ongoing pandemic. Nevertheless, they’ve already released the new dates so at least there’s something to look forward to. Check out the awesome photos from the concerts on their page.
