Best Rock Bands

Best rock bands
Rock is expressively one of the biggest genre there ever was. Which is why naming the best in it means a lot. It has a starting point, but it looks like rock won't ever end.
The parameters of deciding a rock band as the best one depends on, the popularity of the band, its record sales, touring history and the number of times the songs by that particular rock band are aired.

People all over the world enjoy different types of music. One genre of music that people love to groove and let their hair loose is rock and roll. Rock music emerged in the 1950s in the Southern United States and quickly gained popularity in the rest of the world. It was a compilation of gospel music, blues and country music. The term rock and roll (also rock n roll or rock & roll) was coined by a disc jockey from Ohio called Alan Freed. The music he broadcast was usually described as rock n roll. After the 1950s, many rock bands bloomed all over the country.
