Mount Rushmore is a fantastic tribute to some of the best Presidents that our country has ever had. If only it were easy to create such monuments dedicated to all things. Sports, music, pop culture. Let's put the faces of all the most influential people of all genres on a mountain. A Mount Rushmore of rock music is particularly necessary, a Mount Rock-more if you will. With so many artists to choose from though, who do you put up there?

Jimi Hendrix

 
 

Probably the most influential guitar player of all time. Jimi Hendrix needs to be immortalized in a mountain side because there is no one else quite like him. His songs are still covered to this day, and many guitar players draw their inspiration directly from Hendrix. Ranked as the number one guitar player of all time in countless publications, to leave him off would be an injustice.

Ozzy Osbourne

 
 

Without Ozzy Osbourne's involvement in Black Sabbath, we may not have the heavy metal that we all love. No arguably, we could put Sabbath on a Mount Rushmore all on their own, but Ozzy is the god father of heavy metal and needs to be here. He still sells out shows world wide, and sells millions of records.

Alice Cooper

 
 

The king of the shock rock. If Alice Cooper didn't come along, then there would be no KISS, no Rob Zombie, no Marilyn Manson, no Slipknot, need we go on? He's the creator of a genre of music that not only produces great songs, but even greater shows. he's still out shocking audiences to this day, while also spreading positive messages. Cooper is one of the great rock-icons of our time.

Dave Grohl

 
 

Sure, he still as a lot left in the tank as far as his career goes, but Dave Grohl has already done so much. He was part of the grunge era, and his band the Foo Fighters is one of the biggest on the planet. No one can forget that he is a great frontman, but also one of the best rock drummers of all time too. He can write a catchy song, a pop tune or even metal. Dave Grohl is keeping rock and roll alive for the world. That is why he has a well deserved spot on Mount Rock-more.
