'60 Days That Changed Rock’ on Apple Music

One of the most important moments in music history, the '60 Days That Changed Rock’ on Apple Music will celebrate the albums that showed the world the mighty force of rock ’n' roll.

In 1991, rock ’n' roll was going through a seismic shift. The 80s had created mega rock bands like Metallica and Guns n Roses and they were bigger than ever as the 80s rolled into the 90s. The alternative scene of the 80s was initially isolated to college campuses and “in-the-know” clubs but bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and the Red Hot Chili Peppers made sure that they were no longer going to be defined as simply a college rock band

Debuting with Metallica’s ‘The Black Album’, each week for six weeks a different album will be featured and added to the rock music feature. In addition, Apple Music radio hosts Strombo and Jenn from Rock Classics will create companion radio shows for each album that will air on Apple Music Hits.
