Other contenders for the best year in Rock History – 1956 or 1977

Other contenders for the best year in Rock History – 1956 or 1977

Well 1956 was really something with a gigantic shift in music with the Advent of Rock ‘n’ Roll:

Elvis Presley

Little Richard

Bo Diddley

Carl Perkins

Chuck Berry

Eddie Cochran

Buddy Holly

Everly Brothers

Jerry Lee Lewis

Fats Domino

 

Or 1977 with the advent of New York New Wave and Punk

Sex Pistols

Stiff Little Fingers

Clash

Blondie

Talking Heads

Ramones

Patti Smith

Television

Buzzcocks

Damned

Ruts

Dead Kennedys

Wayne County

New York Dolls

 

Can either of those compare with 1967? Or has there been any mega shift and burst of nascent creativity since?
