list of rock and pop immortals?

a while back Rolling stone magazine made a list of artists that they claim "Immortal," meaning that they will never be forgotten for some reason or another. my challenge for you is to create your own immortal list. Name 10+ bands/artists that you think will be remembered forver, bonus pints if you give reasons why.

BQ: make a list of the same manner about the R&P regs.

    ooohhh!!! fun!!!!

    1) the beatles

    the beatles will go down as the biggest & greatest pop/rock/psychedelic band ever in the history of history. mostly because love them or hate them everyone knows who they are. they changed the face of music as we know it. rock would not & could not be the same with out them. *see a hard days night, twist & shout, lucy in the sky with diamonds, with a little help from my friends, while my guitar gently weeps & helter skelter*

    2) led zeppelin

    known for their tripped out riffs & gods of rock appeal, led-zeppelin is one of the biggest bands in rock & roll. with jimmy page's layed back guitar style, john paul jones' superb bass playing, john bonham spot on drumming & robert plant's moaning singing style can not be done to this much perfection again. women wanted to sleep with them & men wanted to be them. what more coud you want in a band. they are immortal because of there music & that oh so sexy rock gods style that they not only invented but perfected to an art form. *see dazed & confused, the rain song, immigration song, the battle of evermore, over the hills & far away, no quoter, stairway to heaven, when the levee brakes & whole lotta love*

    3) the who

    legend-wait for it-ary!!! is all i can say. they had this presets on a record that you just knew it was them. they can't be duplicated. a wonderful collaboration that consists of a before his time punk rock guitarist, a wildly crazy drummer, a wonderfully superb bases & a raw & powerful singer. these men made incredible music together. that is why they are immortals in rock history. *see baba o'riley, behind blue eyes, happy jack, i can see for miles, magic bus, my generation, sneeze box & love, reign o'er me

    4) queen

    one of the best & well know bands to ever excised. whether people know it or not they all know this band & like at lest one song. with a harmonic musical blend of brian may's guitar, freddie mercery's powerful vocals, roger talyer's drumming & john deacon bass is pure genius. queen will always be immortals. *see bicycle race, bohemian rhapsody, don't stop me now, crazy little thing called love, somebody to love, killer queen, we are the champions & a kind of magic*

    5) janis joplin

    she has one of the most distinctive female voices in rock history. she tops my immortals list because of that crazy cool voice of hers. no women can sing the blues like her (or ever will i think). she had a presents on stage that is just beautiful. *see me & bob mcgee, kozmic blues, bye, bye, baby, summertime, mersadies benz, another piece of my heart, a women left lonely & try (just a little bit harder)*

    6) jimi hendrix

    quite possibly one of the best guitarist ever. he is an immortal because of both his psychedelic guitar style & his trippie fashion scene. though he's not really known for his voice his guitar skills well make up for that. *see all along the watch tower, are you experienced?, purple haze, voodoo child & the star spangled banner at woodstock*

    7) the doors

    probably more know for jim morrison's antics on & off stage. though it can't be denied what the doors have done for music. with a grate blend of music making of jim morrison cetlic vocals, beautiful keyboarding ray manzarek, cool drummering of john densmore & the amazing guitarist robby krieger. they brought dark lyrics to the 60's (which was known as the era of love). those dark poetic lyrics is why the doors are immortals. *songs to see back door man, brake on though (to the other side), light my fire, moonlight drive, the crystal ship, the end, people are strange & roadhouse blues*

    8) the rolling stones

    these bad boys of rock were the sex deprived, women wanting & leaving, rock n' roll loving voice for many generations (& still are). they are another monumentally big band by perfecting blues rock. no one could replace the stones. *songs to see beast of burden, ruby tuesday, sympathy for the devil, let's spend the night together, under my thumb, it's only rock n' roll (but i like it), wild horses & paint it black*

    9) bob dylan

    a protesting voice for a generation. not known for his outstanding vocals but for his amazing poetic lyrics. i personally love his voice. it can go perfectly with his raw, emotional lyrics. he is another one where you ither love him or hate him. i don't understand how hate such a genius. *songs to see the times they are a changn', like a rolling stone, blown' in the wind, mr. tambourine man, a hard rain's gonna fall, mama, you've bin on my mind, forever young & rainy day women #12 & 35*

    10) pink floyd

    the most tripped out band of the 70's. a band that thought & meaning to music "drug" music. they made some of the best consented records ever.they can not be topped & are immortals in rock because of it. *see dark side of the moon, the wall, animals & wish you were here*

    first and foremost the beatles.. they were so innovative and creative their music was truly revolutionary

    queen.. freddie mercurys voice is pure brilliance and also im pretty sure every generation will listen to bohemian rhapsody, i cant see that song ever going out of style.

    alice in chains. Layne Staley is a GENIOUS. people can say what they want about nirvana.. but im pretty sure in time people will realise they take a backseat to aic in every way. they were the TRUE pioneers of grunge.

    metallica- they were really the first thrash metal band alot of people took note of, and for good reason. also they have been around forever

    pink floyd- very interesting and innovative sound

    led zeppelin- what can i say their legends

    black sabbath- in many peoples opinions they were THE FIRST metal band.

    uhh and i really dont wana do the r&p thing.

    Led Zeppelin


    I'm sorry, I'm really depressed right now.

    there are obviously more. I'm just..


    and it's a long.a*s.story.

    But lets just say I'm so depressed, that listening to Led Zeppelin can't even help me.

    Actually, music in general won't fix this.

    Nothing will :-(

    Sorry, that was so...depressing.

    **Ugh I've just been really stressed out lately and I got in a really stupid fight with my friend and then that made me really depressed...and then I had a panic attack at like 10:30 last night and my mom called 911 but by the time the ambulance came I was fine, and now I feel really sick and been crying for like 14 1/2 hours


    I don't even know why I got so mad at my friend, I just told her all this stuff that she can't do anything about and I didn't like her response and the panic attack thing just really scared me :|

    **It's okay, thanks for asking though, that actually made me feel ...half a percent better then I did before, which is a lot considering how sh*tty I feel.

    KISS-----They made makeup cool!

    GUNS N' ROSES-----They made the guitar just as big a part of the music as the vocals. The first garage band to make an impact. My personal fave.

    LED ZEPPLIN-----Genius for their musical arrangements. Opened the world up to a whole new type of rock.

    DEF LEPPARD-----Just an awesome group. No two ways about it.

    BEATLES-----DUH!!! They invented rock music!

    QUEEN-----Just totally changed the whole way you looked at music.

    ROLLING STONES-----They're just the Rolling Stones. Nothing more you can say about them.

    AEROSMITH-----Opened people up to a new type of rock. Awesome!

    EAGLES-----They have transcended every culture and era and have just been there through it all.

    THE WHO-----Kept Led Zepplin on their toes, just as Led Zepplin kept them on their toes.

    LYNARD SKYNARD-----Died too young...amazing impact on the southern rock genre. Their legend lives on. R.I.P.
