35 Great Examples of Rock Band Website Designs

You can’t imagine your life nowadays without the internet. We all spend hours and hours doing various things, like work, research, entertainment. And, speaking of entertainment, although this domain is very vast, we will talk about music today, specifically about rock music. As you probably know, rock music emerged from the 1940’s and 1950’s rock and roll, which was influenced on its turn by blues and country.

The beauty of rock music consists in the fact that it is a style that was inspired from many more like jazz, blues, folk, classical and others. So this genre began developing during and after the 1960’s, mainly in the United Kingdom and the United States. The music is centered mainly on the electric guitar; most of the times accompanied by bass guitar and drums, placing a big emphasis on live performance and authenticity. This genre of music has served as a cultural and social movement, giving birth to hippie, punk, goth, emo and other subcultures.

Ok, so everybody has some favorite band, about which they would want to know every detail, updates, new albums and tours. It is now a usual thing for music creators to have their own official web page, where all the communication with the fans happens, new pictures from the latest concert are uploaded and discussed, and the most recent album is being promoted and so on. It is important that the official website represents the artists.

Especially if you are visiting it for the first time, it’s style should say a lot about the band. You wouldn’t use black and pink in a emo style for a band that sings hard rock, but you would use some dark designs with some desolate colors for a goth band. I hope you got the idea. Now, here’s a showcase with some of the most representative and great rock band websites.

    Some of them are like bad boys’ sites. Incubus and Artic are really boring :D

    Some websites included in this list aren’t well designed, there’s just too much going on. I think I prefer the simplicity of Deftone’s blog among the list.

    Impressed. Nice designs and good layout. I agree there are some designs that do not suit personality of a band website. Anyways thanks for this this post.

    Excellent designs :)

    Most of the websites are “dark-colored” and I think it is intentional because music lovers are passionate and dark color can expression passion more creatively.

      Dark color can express passion more creatively? lol
      I never have seen passion gone creative with colors:D

      for me dark color shows intensity, glam, influence and the impact

    A couple of the sites shown here aren’t that well designed when it comes to User Interface. NIN for example – the site navbar isn’t consistent with the rest of the pages in terms of mouse hover but I’m a stickler like that.

    The rest of the sites are nicely designed. Thanks for sharing! :)

    Isn’t it strange how some references are meant to come one’s way… Was speaking about re-vamping an existing recording studio’s brand ID to bring it more in line with their younger audience – that was YESTERDAY.

    Thanks for this post. Great luxuriously dramatic sites with style.
