Are y’all ready to Rock? Best Songs of all times that changed the DNA of Rock N Roll – Part 1

Guitars went electric, music changed forever and life was never the same again!

Don’t we all agree to this? At least, the rock lovers do!

The era of Rock N Roll espouses the unstoppable force of nature that always had the potential to deliver the goods, subsequently finding the audience that has the capability to pick up what’s being put down. From classic rock to punk and progressive lyrics, there’s something for everyone to engage with, making rock music one of the most volatile and unpredictable genre of the sonic territory.

The flamboyant frontmen, chunky guitar hooks and ballsy bass lines, in our view, that’s not all what defines the six decade long era of Rock N Roll. For us and for those who have grown up with Pink Floyd’s psychedelic elements, The Beatles’ sweet rock and AC/DC’s complex arrangements, Rock Music is sheer timeless, it’s a way of life…..

After all that’s been done, and being done, here are a few handpicked purest rock songs that changed the lives of millions, not to mention, the face of the musical ecosystem.

1. “Iron Man,” Black Sabbath

The journey through heaven and hell, Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” is anything but just another Sabbath track. Issuing an overpowering six minute anthem inspired by the Marvel Comics character, this one talks about a man who travels through time and witnesses the apocalypse.; how he encounters a rouge magnetic field in his own time that turns him into Iron Man – the one , we all know of through Stan Lee’s work of fiction. More than the words, it has always been the sentiment and the sound that attract listeners to this plodding track.

2. You Shook me All Night Long – AC/DC

Certified 22 times as Platinum, “You Shook Me All Night Long” from AC/DC’s “Back in Black” became a huge hit all across the world in 1980 for its equal parts of wit, pomp and swagger. Touting a simple beat, Brian Johnson’s raspy vocals, and boogie rock riff, what made this song instantly popular was its double-entendre, yet easy to understand lyrics. It was a revolutionary song of that time, and it still remains to be hard rock staple at music events and bars.

3. Atom Heart Mother Suite – Pink Floyd

Incredibly focused, well written and far more free, the “Atom Heart Mother Suite” from Pink Floyd’s double album Ummagumma, churned out to be one of the interesting ones of the era. Driven mainly by orchestra and avant-garde composition, this catchy progressive lead quickly impresses the psychedelic lovers, but is often intriguing for those who are yet to acquire a taste for such strong fantasia. This piece is sure to get you moving as it keeps getting better with larger picture and euphoric moments.

4. The Beatles, “Helter Skelter”

Written by Paul McCartney, “Helter Skelter” from Beatles’ “White Album” was famed as first heavy metal song ever that screams authority in history. A pure decadence and brilliantly composed, this song hits all the right notes creating “something different” that enthrusts listeners into the wild. Overall, a steep and sprawling slide that deserves a coveted space in your Rock ‘N’ Roll playlist!

5. The Doors – Light my Fire

There’s always that one song that can either make or break your chance of making it big in the music industry, and let’s face it, back then, it required laborious effort to even enter the palladium. But The Doors had their way, and what a remarkable one, we tell you! The Doors topped the charts with their breakthrough “Light My Fire”, a 3 minute single, which soon became synonymous with the ’60s psychedelic and sexual revolutions. It won’t be wrong to say that this little composition changed the life of the band. It is highly recommended to find the original version and listen to it.

The list doesn’t get over, just yet! Wait for our next edition on 10 classic rock songs that became rock staples, and are ubiquitous even in today’s musical ecosystem.
