1. The Rolling Stones
Mick Jagger and the gang were at the forefront of the British Invasion in U.S. music. They became synonymous with the counterculture of the 1960s and helped make blues a part of rock and roll. Called “The World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band,” their estimated album sales are at over 250 million. They’ve released 29 studio albums in addition to live albums and compilations. They’ve been making music for over 50 years, and pretty much all of it is timeless and insanely cool.
