In your opinion, it can be country, rock,disco,rap,hip hop or anything you think.

I'm going to go with Chubby Checker's " Twist " or Elvis's "Jailhouse Rock"

Hard to say. A Love Supreme by John Coltrane or Kind of Blue by Miles Davis are all I can think of right now. I'd probably need to go further back than that, though. Something from Louis Armstrong.

A bit of a strech for the thread but oh well.

Video Killed The Radio Star, by the Buggles ... Was the First song played on MTV. Since then MTV has taken over how music is percieved. We now have a certain look or style to music instead of talent and good writing/composing.

I can't pick one song, but I can think of several that changed music...

Carl Perkins "Blue Suede Shoes" (I see lots of Elvis and Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins was actually the first of the Sun Big 5 to do it, I believe)

The Kinks "You Really Got Me" -- DISTORTION??!?! :hail: :rockon:

The Beatles "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"

David Bowie "Changes" -- from Bowie, simultaneously sprung the roots of disco, punk, and 80's new wave

Yep, Bill Haley's "Rock Around the Clock" ushered in Rock 'n Roll. It was the first Rock 'n Roll song. 1954, I think.

Heh, this should make me popular...

Grandmaster Flash - Adventures on the Wheels of Steel.

This song ushered in a whole new perspective in regards to sampling, it opened an entire generation to a brand new genre of music, and made the turntable DJ a legitimate artist.

Oh, and BRC, before you come crashing down on me too, that's the name of the guy who did the song in front of the song.

We're talking about the boy band TREND. The Beatles were all alone in that aspect. The Jackson 5 wasn't really a boy band, so much as they were a more mainstream version of the "family" band of that era, like the Partridge Family. :D

Oh god, it makes me sick just talking about it.

I know he asked for a song ... but I think it was Elvis (and I was not a big fan of him... plenty of others that I liked much better) that really pushed rock n roll ahead. His popularity brought about the change that made to a daring style of music known as rock n roll. You can pick any of his songs ... maybe his first.... or one that really took off.... there are a bunch of them. I know there were other singers ahead of him but he seemed to be the ring leader of pushing the change to rock n roll. Then came the Beatles that cemented the change ... again you pick their song.

I used the " In your opinion " because of the age gap of the planeteers. To each his own, each member or most members will lean favoblly to his/her's generation of music.

Technically, any song that is more upbeat or faster than the generation before can qualify depending on the person.

Personally, IMHO, it had to come in the 50's era that possibly changed the industry from the blue,traditional,country /western,or big band type songs.

Rocket 88 by Ike Turner is recognized as the first Rock and Roll song ever recorded. Jackie Brenston, who was a member of Ike Turner's Rhythm Kings, sang lead. The single was credited to "Jackie Brenston and His Delta Cats" The Oldsmobile "Rocket 88" just came out and was the fastest car on the road at the time. It was advertised as having a V-8 "Rocket" engine.

While Rocket 88 was earlier, it did not achieve worldwide success or make it to the top of the charts like Rock Around the Clock did.

Agreed, there are so many good answers to the question.
I chose Sgt. Peppers not only because of the musical content, but because the album changed many things in the industry, such as how albums are marketed.
Being a heavy metal fan in the '80's, I would also add Black Sabbath/Ozzy works to the influential list.
A big ground breaker was Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, it still sounds modern and it was released 32 years ago. It still sells 8,000 copies a week and was on the charts for 741 consecutive weeks.
Metallica's Kill 'em All was also ground breaking.
There are so many.

Here's the original post:

The sentence in and of itself describes a trend, something that has occured continuously over the last 20 years. Of course, seeing that he said 20 years, that goes back to 1985, which precludes the Beatles AND the Jackson 5.

also

Elvis - Jailhouse Rock

All black blues players (Muddy Waters, etc) that were later covered by Rolling Stones, Clapton

the combination is what made rock and roll.

There are several - depending on your generation.

Most recent ones = "Rapper's Delight" and "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
The former ushered in the biggest music craze today: hip-hop/rap, and the latter killed the hair bands: brought "grunge"/punk back to mainstream.
