A few more from me:
Black Sabbath - The inventors of heavy metal. Pioneers.
Deep Purple - Also pioneers of metal/hard rock. And who doesn't know Smoke On The Water?
Some more NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) pioneers.
Iron Maiden - Still going strong after all these years.
Motorhead - We've lost all 3 classic members in the last few years: Lemmy (2015), Phil "Philthy Animal"Taylor (2015), "Fast" Eddie Clarke (2018). They crossed the divide between hard rock/metal & punk, with fans of all genres flocking to their unique take on heavy music.
Lynyrd Skynyrd - Legends of Southern Rock. They have a brilliant back catalogue, including the song everyone knows, Sweet Home Alabama.
