15 Moments That Nearly Destroyed Rock

Keystone, Hulton Archive

As anyone who has studied time travel (or simply seen ‘The Terminator’) knows, life turns on a dime. Seemingly mundane events are actually extremely significant, and our tiniest decisions have major ramifications for the future. That’s especially true in rock ‘n’ roll, and we’ve teamed with our fellow nerds at Loudwire and Ultimate Classic Rock to compile this list of 15 Moments That Nearly Destroyed Rock. These are brief episodes in rock history that could have played out differently, and if they had, they would have changed the course of music forever — and not for the better.

First Moment: Sing, Joey, Sing!
