Everyone’s Favorite Era

Okay, maybe not everyone but most classic rock fans point to the 1970s as the greatest decade in the genre. After all, it wouldn’t be called the golden era for nothing. Whether it’s the music, the birth of several subgenres, or the launching of the career of future rockstars, there’s so much that went on in the ’70s that we could still hear its influence in today’s music.

For now, let’s focus on five rock bands who were a cut above the rest – not an easy task to accomplish especially since at the time, there was no shortage of talent. But somehow, these groups knew how to stand out.

Their songs stood the test of time and have all aged well – kept popular by hundreds of cover versions on the internet. They pushed the envelope when it came to making music, taking advantage of current studio techniques and technology to create sounds that no one thought was possible in the ’70s. Most of them met criticisms and other hurdles along the way but they answered critics and haters in the best way – by flaunting their genius with their music.

Check out the list and let us know what you think.
