Watch the Entire History of Rock Reimagined as a Facebook Timeline

A U.K. design studio has reimagined all of rock history as a Facebook timeline condensed into an incredible 15-minute video.

Ithaca Audio chronicles more than 50 years of music history and the dissemination of influence from one artist to another in their super-creative “History of Rock” video. The team of designers envisions that history as a Facebook timeline comprised of video posts featuring archival footage of Elvis, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix with comments (sourced from actual quotes) from Dave Grohl, Jack White and Kurt Cobain. Watch it all unfold above.

You can download “History of Rock”’s soundtrack — which spotlights Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, David Bowie, Radiohead, the Strokes and more — right here. See the entire track list below:
