How nice would the world be if good intentions and pure-hearted passion towards one’s craft was all that mattered, especially in music. Sadly, we do not live in a Utopian society, and so, with mouths to feed and roofs to put over heads, commercialization has to work its magic.

In the rock industry, major players started with the meteoric rise of rock n’ roll. Soon enough, the standard pop-rock approach by The Beatles’ earlier years took over, marking some of the most well-received material to ever exist. Contemporaries like Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand competed well in the numbers game too, but were eclipsed by the rapid success of blues rockers Led Zeppelin as the 70’s rolled in. Soon enough, The Beatles lost their throne as the best-selling artists, but is still a commendable feat considering their position at the top 5 long after they parted ways.

Watch this demographic video of how artists from 1969 competed with each other in terms of record sales.
