70's Classic Rock Music Hits

Updated on October 31, 2016

Classic Rock Bands Of The 70's

The 70's was a decade that had a large influence on me . Mostly because I was a pre-teen and music was a big part of my life. Listening to the radio and playing records is what shaped my love for music. 70's Rock Bands like Styx, Journey, Boston, Kansas, America,The Eagles, Black Sabbath, Elton John, Led Zeppelin and Fleetwood Mac just to name a few. Here is a list of music from the 70's bands I could think of. Tell me your favorites too!

70's Rock Music

My memories of the 70's

The 70's was a time when rock music and "Bell Bottom Jeans" where the rage!! I loved music, television and just hanging out in the neighborhood with my friends. Do you remember any of these wonderful bands? For me, this decade brings back many memories. A funny story about me in the 70's was, I used to wear patchwork bell bottom jeans, Indian beaded jewelry (Indian beaded jewelry was very popular in the 70's), wore cherry flavored lip gloss and I feathered my hair. LOL. Remember that?

If you are reading this and you don't know what feathered hair is take a look at Farah Fawcett from the 70's . Google her... I will wait... Okay. Every girl on Earth wanted to be her or at least have her hair. Anyway, back to the music. I lived in the Midwest at the time and I loved watching television, playing records (real vinyl records) and playing games outside with my friends.

When I wasn't outside playing with my friends, I would listen to my favorite records for hours and sing along. That's how I learned how to sing, from bands like Boston, ELO, Journey, Rush, Abba, Bee Gees and many more. Those were the great rock bands that shaped our rock music sounds today.

Take a stroll down memory lane, and have fun listening to all of the music videos I have put together. These were my favorite rock bands of the 70's. If you have any favorites, tell me what you like. I would love to hear what you liked.

      It seems that the best rock music happened in the 70's..

      since then there was nothing good in rock music, actually rock music is dead.

      these new era rock bands are more into pop than into rock music.

      so just sit back and enjoy bands like led zepelin and pink floyd instead of bul**** we have these days.

      Styx is definitely my favorite from the 70's, then Rush. However, I do believe "Bee Gees Rock songs" is an oxymoron. Lol. Thanks so much for the lens.

      The Doors! While I suppose they were mostly a 60's band, they at least survived long enough to kick off the 70's with their last album.

      Is there a limit to what can be called 70's rock? Seem not much was out in the beginning of the decade, and some went into later years.

      Maybe a profanity but my favourite is Deep Purple (http://www.squidoo.com/deep-purple-rock-band), but my second most loved band is Led Zeppelin. :)

      Looking back, I was a young kid then, I enjoyed Abba and the Bee Gees the most. Now, while I still like them, I also some of the others, that were just too old for me then. Great lens, good job.

      I've been rediscovering 70s music lately. My favorite is the 90s but music today is SO bad that I've been going back and finding tunes from the 70s I like. Fleetwood Mac has caught my attention lately. Great lens!

      I was born in the mid 70's so 70's rock "should" be before my time, but it's definitely my favorite! Led Zeppelin (Going to California, Battle of Evermore, etc) and Fleetwood Mac (Big Love, Rhiannon, Tusk, etc) start off my day right.
