35 Salutes to Rock ‘N Roll Icons

— November 19, 2008 — Pop Culture
Rock ‘n Roll still rules, just this week we are being treated to previously undisclosed songs and images of the The Beatles. It’s no secret; call it retro, classic or eternal, the music and rockstars from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s are as popular today as they ever were. In some cases, the historic rock heroes of the past are making a more explosive comeback then what they experienced at their prime.

AC/DC has a satellite radio station, Grace Jones has launched a wild new video and Aerosmith is the ‘Guitar Hero’. Then there’s KISS, well, have they ever really left?

Check out all these ‘wicked’ updates of the coolest veteran Rock ‘n Roll icons on the planet.
