Music plays a large roll in most of our lives. But sadly, some people actually know very little about where those phat beats originated. Thankfully, The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has brought music history to the masses with a brand new application on the App Store.

The $1.99 application comes complete with 600 recordings from the most influential bands of all time. The app is all about the music as you traverse from 1920 through to modern era music.

The cool thing is that the App also lets you jump out of a song and into the iTunes store to purchase the music that you’re enjoying.┬áIf you’re even remotely into music, you’re going to want to check this one out. The app is universal, so you’ll be able to enjoy it on both your iPhone and iPad.
