The Top Ten
Dylan goes electric; and the world changed.
I look online, looking for something PSY.
I mean 2 billion views, I had no idea why! - DapperPickle
Seeing The Beatles and Bob Dylan below Justin Bieber and Gangnam Style makes me sad. - PetSounds
The Beatles and Elvis actually established "trends" that are still going strong until today.
Psy and Bieber are mere blips on the radar, with even Queen and MJ being pale by comparison.
John Lennon said it best, "Before Elvis, there was nothing".
Ah, the trend of hate, it's a beautiful thing... - DapperPickle
"DYLAN GOES ELECTRIC" was the third most important [trend setting] moment in rock history, trailing only the Beatles and Elvis first appearances.
Hendrix' debut at the Monterey Pop Festival was earth-shattering, in part because nobody knew who he was, or expected anything like what they witnessed.
Well, an absolute trend setting song by an absolute trend setter.
One of the most popular songs of that era.
Old-school's finest hip-hop work ever done.
Perfect lyrics. Jaw dropping beat and flow.
Emimen, the evergreen. - itsflashbuddy
Something which initiated an entire industry of wonders. - PositronWildhawk
Pharrell, were you high when making this song? - DapperPickle
Even though Ike Turner was a huge jerk, this is considered the very first "rock and roll" song, and was long before he met Tina.
Think "Gangnam Style", but in Spanish.
Arguably the very first "country rock" song, although their contemporaries, The Byrds usually get credit for inventing the genre.
