The Top Ten
Without the major classical composers of this period, we may not have the music we enjoy today.
Tough call, its this or the British Invasion. Nothing else comes close. Relevant note, the British Invasion itself lasted less than 5 years, though several of the acts lasted much longer. The Classical Period lasted at least 100 years, the best of those are still well known today.
Notable Composers: Ludwig Van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johann Sebastian Bach
Notable bands: Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, AC/DC
+ Deep Purple, the most underrated band of all time. Most people always forget them.
This period was when many of the British groups we know and listen to today started to become popular and successful in America. How would music be without 60s greats such the Beatles, The Stones, The Who, The Kinks, or even Led Zeppelin?
The Brits stormed in and properly shook up the American and world music scene. It's never gone away. And it's highly unlikely that it ever will.
I'm glad that the British bands helped bring American music (like rock and roll as well as blues) back to the American people. A lot of kids in the 60s wouldn't know about this stuff if it wasn't for the British.
Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, and Starr made a powerful influence on American youths with rock n roll music. So many kids were screaming for more from the British band to make amazing hit songs from successful albums. Those were thrilling times for not just The Beatles who became famous during the 1960s. The Who and Rolling Stones came along too.
