The Doors
The Kinks
The Byrds
The Who
The Sex Pistols
Jimi Hendrix
Nirvana
David Bowie
Queen
And, Led Zeppelin
the kinks, the byrds and the who all came about because of someone else- the beatles. although i think the "you really got me" riff changed peoples attitudes towards the guitar for many years i dont think any 3 of those bands did anything to really trigger a new movement or style..not on their own anyway.

Ah yes, Metallica was very influential. They just did everything BIG.

great post. too many people in my opinion undervalue the influence the clash had on not just punk but music as a whole. more musical capability then the pistols, damned and buzz****s combined. the only punk band to really get close to them in terms of ability on their instruments is the stranglers. but influence well.....the clash by a long way.

This is what most people expect me to pick and for a good reason, I am not blindly allied to the band, I just recognize the talent. Metallica had always said they wanted to be the Anti-Motley Crue, and I think this brings them down to a punk mentality. They never played 3 min pop accesible songs about women or drugs (in a good way) or parties, they played songs about the corrupting force of narcotics and the horrors of war. Thier first CD might have had "lets fight" songs or "let drive fast" song but from Lightning on it was all meaningful lyrics, they never wasted a song, or a note. And to me, the latter is the most important. I don't care if you sing about Donald Duck not wearing pants, its the music is there, then so am I. Im unfamiliar with how many bands actually had multiple movements in a song like metallica did, but when I read articles today about how Jazz and Metal are similar, I know that metallica's classical influences helped push the genre farther than it has ever gone with another band. Their music accented moods created by the lyrics and to me, they are as close to progressive without being progressive as it gets.

These boards are overpopulated with a bunch of kids who listened to load and everything after and think Metallica sucks, and to me it doesn't matter what they do anymore because they've already laid the groundwork for musical advancement that has yet to be matched. It may not be popular opinion, but to me they are the Jimi Hendrix of Metal, the miles davis of metal, the beatles of metal.

No band souded like them before they arrived, and everyband has been trying to emmulate them in at least some fashion ever since 1984.

A-****ING-MEN! I could hardly have said it better, and I'm quite articulate.

What about Rush?! They influenced a lot of the sort of blues-rock of the late 70s, 80s, even early 90's for example Ten Years After, Dream Theatre, Etc. Also Eric Clapton with Cream

whooop i got quoted.

Did you see the S&M concert they did with san francisco symphony orchestra? that nothing else matters piece sends shivers down my spine and gives me goosebumps. For me that was them ON FORM James' voice was un-be-lieveable. And as for Lars Ulrich's drumming - i know he gets called a narcissistic this and an egotistical that - but for a damn fine reason. His drumming on for whom the bell tolls was insane.

The best thing about metallica - the majority of songs didnt sound the same, something some bands (including my beloved green day) struggle to uphold.
When you compare 'one', 'for whom the bell tolls', 'i dissapear' and 'nothing else matters' purely just for example, those 4 songs couldn't be any more different whilst still being in the heavy metal genre. A class act which no poor finale album could ever tarnish.

Robert Johnson's blues from the mid to late 1930's is directly responsible for what is known as rock music today.

He only recorded around 30 songs, and while he was not the first to play a blues type guitar, he was the first to play what is now known as the blues format. The Delta Blues explosion that followed in the 40's, eventually evolved into the birth of rock and roll in the 50's.

The rest is history.
