Overview:

· The Velvet Underground is regarded as one of the most influential bands in rock history.

· Their first 4 albums were included in Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

· Ranked 19th greatest artist by the same magazine and the 24th greatest artist in a poll by VH1.

· Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.

· Critic Robert Christgau considers them "the number three band of the '60s, after the Beatles and James Brown and His Famous Flames".

· AllMusic wrote that "Few rock groups can claim to have broken so much new territory, and maintain such consistent brilliance on record, as the Velvet Underground during their brief lifespan [...] the Velvets' innovations – which blended the energy of rock with the sonic adventurism of the avant-garde, and introduced a new degree of social realism and sexual kinkiness into rock lyrics – were too abrasive for the mainstream to handle."
