Recently, Esquire magazine has compiled the 10 greatest pop bands of all time.
Esquire is an American men’s magazine. In the United States, it has been published by Hearst Corporation since 1986,also has more than 20 international editions. Recently, this prestigious magazine announced the 10 greatest pop bands of all time.
The first one to be mentioned is The Beatles which is understandable. With sales of 600 million copies, The Beatles quickly became a cultural icon. From their high-tempo hits like “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “Help!,” to ballads like “Yesterday,” it’s hard to hear any opening chords of a Beatles song without imagining the accompaniment of hordes of screaming fans.
“The Supremes” is a convergence group that brings the breakthrough of three female members. They left a mark on the audience’s hearts with hits like “You Can’t Hurry Love”, “Baby Love” and “Stop, In the Name of Love”. Arguably the greatest Motown act in history, boasting the talents of music legends Diana Ross, Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson, and Betty McGlown, The Supremes were a beloved and groundbreaking group for all-women acts—pop, soul, rock and roll, and more. There’s little doubt that you’ve heard their hits like “You Can’t Hurry Love,” “Baby Love,” and “Stop! In the Name of Love.” And, if you’ve heard any of them, there’s also little chance you’ve refrained from dancing along to their catchy harmonies.
“The Beach Boys” founded in 1961, is a band with bold images of dreams from the American suburbs. With Brian Wilson at the helm and his brothers and friends in tow, The Beach Boys hung ten on the American charts for decades, tactfully balancing between their often ultra-digestible, nearly commercial tone and more daring, experimental efforts. Up to now, The Beach Boys has repeatedly reached the top 10 of the US charts.
Other groups selected in the list include: ABBA, The Temptations, Sly and the Family Stone, Destiny’s Child, Fleetwood Mac, Queen, BTS. BTS is arguably one of the vanguard acts to pioneer K-Pop’s immeasurable worldwide success. Their hit series such as: “Dynamite”, “Life Goes On” are soulful, opening the perfect blend of pop, hip-hop, disco and R&B. This is also the male group with the most numerous and passionate fans at the moment.
