The Beastie Boys. Need I say more? When most think of the rambunctious rap group from that came straight out of the 1980’s, they think about girls, partying, crude humor and maybe some music in between. Although The Beastie Boys as a group did a few things that had never been done before in music history. Thats pretty incredible considering nobody expected something so revolutionary to come from three middle class white jewish kids from New York.
From 2001 to today, Fall Out Boy has become one of the iconic teenage boy-bands. If you were to start playing it in a room full of females, there’s a 80% chance someone would start screaming. The legacy began in Illinois as a hard-core rock band, where Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, and Joe Trohman (they went through a series of drummers before deciding on Andy Hurley) stood in Joe’s garage fishing for old, battered instruments. There they created their first album, Take This to Your Grave. Next, they produced From Under the Cork Tree, Infinity on High, and the flop of Folie a Deux, before they went on hiatus just to come back three years later and create Save Rock and Roll. The most recent album they created was American Beauty/American Psycho, and they are in the process of making another one now. Fall Out Boy was one of the reasons Fueled by Ramen, an American record label that was struggling to get onto the music train, skyrocketed years later.
Jazz has shaped the world we know today. Jazz would have never been as popular without the help of the famous musicians: Jelly Roll Morton, Joe King Oliver, Sidney Bechet, Louis Armstrong, and Duke Ellington.

They were able to create timeless music that still continues to influence artists even years after the end of the group’s time. Not only did they surpassed every limit that was reached before them, they left a mark on the music industry that most artist can only hope they achieve. They changed the way music itself was created and the way it was presented to people listening all over the world. There are few artists in the world that have been able to have the success The Beatles did, their musical achievements truly were one of a kind
