    v Naw, Freak Out! by the Mothers of Invention came before Sgt Pepper, but the rest is correct.

    /THIS/ is the correct genre. There's no such thing as "classic rock." This refers to the point in the late 60s when artists began to release albums as a whole, and not in the single-based style of the 50s and 60s. Sgt. Pepper began this trend, with the insane artwork and inclusion of the full lyrics.
