The following bands and artists are generally older groups whose popularity has spanned at least decade and sometimes much more.

Most are profoundly influenced by bardic, shanson, or folk styles. Note that most Eurasian cultures do not actually use the term “classic rock” – and instead rely on less-time sensitive terms.
