54.  Love

Much like anything in the music world, even the simplest debates can become so complicated. Since it is still in debate just who or what songs really shaped Rock and Roll, we will throw in another ambiguous first, that of band often dubbed the first great underground band, Love.

Classifying Love can be difficult. Their music was influenced by Folk, Hard Rock, Blues, Jazz & Symphonic sounds to create a mesh that was uniquely their own. Like many artists on this list (or any other music list for that matter), Love’s career was very much a tale of what “could have been”. Love never toured with any frequency and with compounding drug issues that accelerated their own implosion prevented them from any decent follow up from their critically acclaimed album, Forever Changes. Even if they had gotten their act together it is uncertain whether the late 1960’s was really ready for them to be successful commercially. Regardless, the amount of musicians that they influenced is certainly extensive. With the principal musicians in Love long deceased only a renascence in their music could even get them even an outside shot to get inducted.
