- in Classic Rock
Formed by sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted group not only pioneered the female-fronted rock band, for all intents and purposes, but they also soundtracked four decades and counting. Throughout this time, the band sold over 35 million records, garnered four GRAMMY Award nominations, landed ten Top 10 albums, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and achieved "the longest span of top-10 albums on the Billboard charts by a female-led band."
HEART's influence can be palpably felt everywhere from rock and heavy metal to hip-hop and pop. As time goes on, the sound, spirit, and soul of HEART only gets louder with each passing year. In the end, they ultimately opened doors for countless musicians to follow, and their place in rock’s pantheon as pioneers stands solidified forever.
