Patti Smith is widely referred to as a chief influencer in the 1970’s New York rock scene. She shot to fame with her debut album ‘Horses’ in 1975. Her unique style of blending poetry with rock made her an icon.

The Black Eyed Peas are no stranger to millennials and baby boomers alike. From ‘where’s the love’ to ‘my humps’, few haven’t had one of their songs as a momentary soundtrack to a part of their life.
