Last time we looked into some of the best rock bands that the world has ever witnessed. Now it’s time to carry on with that list forward. So without further adieu it’s time to get more insights into few more of these bands.

Queenqueen

“Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.”

If these lines don’t seem familiar to you and if you don’t get to sing along with “We will Rock You” and  Bohemian Rhapsody has 448 million views on YouTube and it was one of their best songs ever composed. Farrokh “Freddie” Mercury’s voice and his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range drove millions of people crazy with his and his band’s songs. Here are Queen’s top ten songs according to me:-

  1.  We Will Rock You
  2. Don’t Stop Me Now
  3. Under Pressure
  4. Bohemian Rhapsody
  5. Another One Bites The Dust
  6. We Are The Champions
  7. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
  8. Somebody to Love
  9. Killer Queen
  10. I Want to Break Free

 

Eagles

The Eagles

“Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (any time of year) you can find it here”

I hope you can guess the name of the song looking at those lines. Hotel California sold more than 16 million copies in the U.S. alone and more than 32 million copies worldwide. Formed in 1971 in Los Angeles the founding members were Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner. Their top ten songs, in my opinion, would be:

  1. Take it Easy
  2. Please come home for Christmas
  3. Already Gone
  4. Peaceful Easy Feeling
  5. Hotel California
  6. In the city
  7. Seven Bridges Road
  8. Try and Love Again
  9. Outlaw Man
  10. Love Will Keep Us Alive

Ramones

Ramones

“They’re piling in the back seat
They’re generating steam heat
Pulsating to the back beat
The blitzkrieg bop”

Considered as the first band to introduce punk rock to the world the Ramones were formed in 1974 in Queens. The band’s original members were lead singer Joey Ramone, bass guitarist Dee Dee Ramone, guitarist Johnny Ramone and drummer Tommy Ramone. Top ten songs of the Ramones have got to be:

  1. Blitzkrieg Bop

“Psychic spies from China
Try to steal your mind’s elation
And little girls from Sweden
Dreams of silver screen quotation
And if you want these kind of dreams
It’s Californication”

You have got to know these lines. Californication sold around 4 million copies in Europe alone.  The band was formed by vocalist Anthony Kiedis, guitarist Hillel Slovak, bassist Flea, and drummer Jack Irons after they met while attending Fairfax High School. Since its inception, Red Hot Chili Peppers has maintained a four-member lineup, with fourteen official members overall. Their top ten songs are:

  9. By The Way
  10. Give It Away

Nirvana

Nirvana

“Come as you are, as you were
As I want you to be
As a friend, as a friend
As an known enemy”

I hope you know the remaining lines. Nirvana was formed by singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen, Washington, in 1987. Despite releasing only three full-length studio albums in their seven-year career, Nirvana has come to be regarded as one of the most influential and important alternative bands in history. Though the band dissolved in 1994 after the death of Cobain, their music maintains a popular following and continues to influence modern rock and roll culture. They are also considered as the founder of the Grunge genre. Their top ten songs are:

  1. Smells Like Teen Spirit
  2. Come As You Are
  3. Lithium
  4. The Man Who Sold The World
  5. Heart Shaped Box
  6. All Apologies
  7. In Bloom

That’s it for today. Will be back with another list next week. Till then listen to these songs and have a good time.
