Nirvana, Metallica, Linkin Park, Beethoven > Mozart (Sorry, Mozart is well known but he didn't make any serious changes like Beethoven), Aerosmith, Beatles, Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath, Guns N Roses.


I'm just going by what I know in terms of what bands/artists/composers have made changed modern culture. Beethoven brought us into the Romantic Period which has a sound that is sometimes still done today.

Are you serious? You value Linkin Park's "change to culture" more than that of the Beatles'?

Are you trolling? If not, please, do explain.

Their debut album sold more units worldwide than Metallica's Black Album, and almost as many as Britney Spears' debut.

Linkin Park became much more famous than Korn. Like it or not, they left a pretty big mark on the music of this decade.

they didn't really change anything though. yeah they were popular, but that doesn't make them influential or even good.

i'd say the beatles, nirvana, metallica, hendrix, you know blah blah blah. the ones we all know and hate/love.

He never said they had to be good bands.

And he also said bands that influenced culture, not music.

Of course I could've named off the countless clichéd bands that pop up every time the words "influential" or "best" or "most" are used. But I didn't feel like it.

White Stripes. Strokes. Talking Heads. Micheal Jackson (not in a good way in my opinon). Pavement. Pixies (without them, no Nirvana). Django Reinhardt (cause he invented a new language for the guitar)

but how did they change culture? they didn't really even do that afaik. their music was popular and that was it. no real change in the cultural landscape. if i remember correctly, they were even riding on the last wave of the nu-metal phase.

as far as i can tell, they didn't change anything and didn't really bring anything new to the table. all they were was popular.

just my opinion tho

Bach (started using dissonant and imperfect consonant (don't know the English term for those) harmonies), Beethoven (Romantic period), Charlie Parker (I think it was him, started real Jazz, and not that big-band shit), Chuck Berry/Elvis Presley (started Rock N' Roll and broke taboos), THe Beatles (no explanation necessary), Metallica/Led Zeppelin/Black Sabbath (Metal).

robert johnson, and some of the other delta blues players, they influenced all the bands of the 60s and early 70s

Almost all music has a pretty big impact on culture.


Slayer has definitely had a HUGE influence on culture.

A great deal of people have, such as Chuck Berry, The Beatles, The Stones, Beethoven, Mozart, Dylan, MJ etc, but Elvis is the guy who changed everything. I'm not a huge fan, he's good but I'm a Chuck Berry fanboy, but no one can ignore that he is what made rock popular, albeit The Beatles are the ones who changed it from a fad to music's next thing.

Well, apparently he didn't have that much of a cultural impact cuz nobody talked about him before I did.

And what is that you don't like about the jackets? Everbody had or wanted to have one back in the eighties.
