* Music/TheBeatles redefined pop music with ''Music/RubberSoul'', ''Music/{{Revolver}}'', ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'', ''The Beatles'' (commonly known as "Music/TheWhiteAlbum") and ''Music/AbbeyRoad''. They also redefined pop music with every single other album they released, just not as much. Also responsible for a unique fandom phenomenon: what other band has ever been so popular that they had to ''stop touring'' for fear of widespread riots? Their music went from '50s-influenced rock to folk-rock to swirly psychedelia to acoustic pieces to blues, soul, jazz, pop, music-hall, country, rockabilly, the avant-garde, reggae/ska, Music/BeachBoys influences, proto-punk, proto-metal, proto-prog, proto-funk... and yet, they developed their own distinctive style(s), and distinctive slant on the styles they tackled.

* TheBeachBoys: the Sixties' masters of memorable melody. ''Music/PetSounds'', arguably the band's finest album, is a masterpiece of songwriting and production by Music/BrianWilson; they'd still be going strong today if Wilson hadn't suffered a massive CreatorBreakdown while working on ''[[Music/{{Smile}} SMiLE]]''... and if manager Murry Wilson (father of the three Wilson brothers) hadn't created a massive tangle of royalty- and copyright-related red tape that took the judicial system twenty years to resolve.

* NeutralMilkHotel: Basically the Descartes of the indie scene, they combined your usual fuzzy lo-fi guitars and unusual vocal style with brass, accordion, musical saw, bagpipes, and some of the most mindwarpingly odd yet strangely poignant lyrics ever created.

** Diana Ross and the Supremes: The definitive GirlGroup of the 60s, arguably the yardstick by which all others of the era are judged. Diana went solo by the time the 70s rolled around and just kept rolling out the hits, in both pop and soul.

* ''{{Prince}}.'' The only reason he's in the R&B section is because that's where he started and based the better part of his music around, but the man is one of the best examples of NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly of all time. He redefined {{Funk}} for TheEighties. His use of synthesizers set the stage for the early 80s SynthPop sound. His sexually-charged content set a new standard for what could be said on record (which wound up inspiring the Parental Advisory stickers). His music became so textured critics could only call it The Minneapolis Sound. He wrote so much material, he had to give tons of his songs to other artists, and went so far as to create protege acts (such as Vanity 6, Appolonia 6 and most famously The Time) just as additional output for him. This just scratches the surface of his achievements, but let's just say he has one of the richest bodies of work in modern music. Oh, and he plays guitar like a man possessed.

Added DiffLines:

* The Beatles may have collapsed at the dawn of the 70s, but that didn't slow down the former members too much. In particular: Music/JohnLennon went on to become of the most iconic {{Singer Songwriter}}s of all time, cultivating the famous "Prince of Peace" persona and raising the bar for political activism in music. And Music/PaulMcCartney barely missed a [[{{Pun}} beat]]: he formed a new backup band, Wings, and went on to be one of the biggest {{Arena Rock}}ers of all time.


Added DiffLines:

* Music/TheB52s are one of [[NewWaveMusic new wave's]] weirdest outgrowths. They had a love of [[RummageSaleReject tacky, second-hand clothing,]] liberal use of {{Camp}} (vocalist Fred Schneider is walking, talking camp by himself), and a curious mixture of ironic {{Genre Throwback}}s and circa-early 80s dance music. (Also Music/JohnLennon's favorite band before his death.)

* Music/LouisArmstrong: The man who comes closest to the [[TropeCodifier Trope Codifier]] for this genre. His innovative and influential trumpet solos essentially created the role of the modern jazz performer. Not to mention he also sung and invented the singing style known as [[SingingSimlish Scat]].

* Music/JellyRollMorton is renowned as an excellent composer of early jazz and a distinctive pianist. Also infamous for his bragging (no, he did ''not'' invent jazz himself).

* Music/TheInkSpots and Music/TheMillsBrothers were the forerunners of the vocal groups that would characterize the late 40s and 50s.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/EddieCochran. Alongside Buddy Holly, he was one of the first rock & roll singers to write his own material, and was an early adopter of the overdubbing technique. Had a gritty style of guitar playing - characterized by his use of an unwound third string for bending notes up a whole tone - that guitarists for years afterward emulated.
