Deep Purple mut have been going for about 30 years at least. They're like the definitive hard rock band.
Sadly, although they've recorded loads of really catchy, good hard rock type tunes, they're mostly known because of a tune called "Smoke on the Water", about a time when they were in Geneva and the recording studio caught fire.
Apparently there was (*adopts an air-guitar pose....) "Smoooookkkke on the waaaaaa-terrrrrrrrrr....." Dah dah daaaaaah, dah dah da daaaaaahhh......
Rock 'n' Roll I s'pose.
