  • Aerosmith: The Best of the 1970s

     |  Rolling Stone

    Aerosmith were initially written off as a poor man's Rolling Stones, but the Boston five-piece proved the doubters wrong with an incredible string of hits in the mid-1970s. Hard drugs and infighting lead to the premature death of the original line-up by the end of the decade, and when they reformed in the mid-1980s outside songwriters brought them back to the top of the charts – though with a significantly poppier sound. Here's a look at the best moments from their initial cre...  | More »

  • The Best of Rod Stewart

    October 30, 2012 12:00 PM ET
     |  Rolling Stone

    Rod Stewart is one of rock's all-time great vocalists. His brief tenure in the Jeff Beck group laid the groundwork for Led Zeppelin, and his early 1970s work (both solo and with the Faces) remains criminally underrated. His output over the past thirty years is spotty at best, so this playlist is focused on his incredible first half decade.  | More »

  • Hear Rolling Stone Readers' Favorite Taylor Swift Songs

    Earlier this week, Taylor Swift released her fourth studio album, Red. Like the 22-year-old singer-songwriter herself, it shines in its eclecticism: there are guitar wailers, pop jams and even a dash of dubstep. But where do T-Swift's new jams rank in her pantheon of past hits? We recently asked you to name your favorite songs from Swift's entire catalog – and while you've been down with seemingly all of her moves, it's her Speak Now classics that hit home the ha...  | More »

  • Playlist: Neil Young's Top 20 Obscure Songs

    October 23, 2012 3:20 PM ET
     |  Andy Greene

    This is shaping up to be an incredible year for Neil Young fans. After eight long years, Young reunited with Crazy Horse for the folk standards album Amerciana, and a return to garage glory on Psychedelic Pill.  We figured this was a good opportunity to look back at Young's lesser known classics. These songs were all released after his golden period of 1966-1978, and we also excluded material from his three late 1980s/early 1990s comeback albums (Freedom, Ragged Glory and Harvest M...  | More »

  • Listen to Ellie Goulding's Biggest Influences

     |  Rolling Stone

    After two years of watching live music while touring the world in support of her debut hit Lights, Ellie Goulding put together a very diverse playlist of songs she listened to constantly while making her new Halcyon album. The list of artists starts with the B's, as she puts it. "It's all the people beginning with B – Burial, Bjork, Bon Iver," she tells us. "Definitely Bjork is someone that I always have an affinity with, and not just the music, but her career and just the way...  | More »
