Pop Music in the 70s


Led Zeppelinadds extra volume and energy to r&b to create heavy metal, inspiring a legion of hard-rocking groups like Aerosmith and AC/DC in the process. Bobby Sherman, Donny Osmond and Leif Garrett combine sweet pop tunes with a pin-up image to create a new era of teen-idol music. On the dance floor, The Bee Gees add soul to their sound to join Donna Summer and K.C. and the Sunshine Band in a wave of danceable pop known as disco. Waaaaay at the other end of the spectrum, The Sex Pistols and The Ramones fuse raw rock with serious attitude, and punk rock is born.

  1. I notice that no wjhere is anything mentioned about the Jamaica music what was hitting the charts from 1962 onwards even up to when Reggae became commercialised in the mid 70’s, also there is no mention of the Original Skinhead in 1969 til its dimise in the mid 70’s before 2-Tone arrived, you mention the 60’s mod era but that is where the skinheads came from after the hippy movement started, if you want more info on the Original skinhead movement and about what well known clothes they wore from “grandad shirts, waffle cardigans, Sta-press, Levi’s, Crombies, sheepskins then give me a shout.
