Best Blues Rock Bands/Artists

Combining bluesy improvs over traditional 12-bar blues, blues rock bands are some of the most important bands in music history. The best blues rock bands are often times - and rightfully - considered some of the greatest rock bands of all time. Blues rock became popular in the UK and U.S. in the 1960s at the onset of the rock explosion and these bands took elements from traditional blues music and amplified it through the use of electric guitars, explosive bass lines and heavy drum beats. Over time, blues rock evolved to include heavy riffs that came to include elements of hard rock as well. That said, blues rock bands are some of the most beloved and the best blues bands have a legacy that goes far beyond their best songs.

So, what are the best blues rock bands? When people think of blues rock, bands like Led Zeppelin, Cream, the Allman Brothers Band and solo blues artists like Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn and B.B. King are widely known as some of the best blues rock artists. Though primarily known for being guitar rock driven, the best blues rock bands have awesome guitar solos that are often times more memorable than a song's lyrics, which is a testament to brilliant musicianship that best blues rock bands incorporate into their sound.

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best blues rock bands. If you think a band is missing from this list, and should be, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best blues-rock bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest blues-rock musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular blues-rock bands that you might've heard of.
