Rolling Stone Launches “40 Most Groundbreaking Albums of All Time” with the Help of Indian Motorcycle

Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, today announced it has joined forces with Rolling Stone in this week’s release of a chronology of the “40 Most Groundbreaking Albums of all Time,” exclusively presented by the groundbreaking new 2015 Indian Scout.

The compilation by the editorial staff of Rolling Stone identifies the most “monumental musical statements that changed the world.”

The chronological listing spans the nearly 60 years from Woody Guthrie’s 1940 “Dust Bowl Ballads” to Kanye West’s 2008 album “808s & Heartbreak,” and includes dozens of groundbreaking albums from the likes of Radiohead, Mary J. Blige, Dr. Dre, Nirvana, Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, Miles Davis and the Grateful Dead.

“We are proud to align with the folks at Rolling Stone on this seminal project to identify the 40 most important, industry-changing albums dating back to 1940, and we knew our industry-changing 2015 Indian Scout had to be associated with this endeavor,” said Scott Meek, marketing director for Indian Motorcycle.

“The Indian Scout has been around for roughly that same timeframe, and it clearly changed the history of motorcycling and was an important part of American culture. We think the new 2015 Indian Scout is destined to be a monumental motorcycling statement that will change the course of our industry.”

The 2015 Scout is the first truly new Indian Scout in more than 70 years, yet its design pays homage to the legendary early Scouts that conquered the infamous “Wall of Death” and notched countless innovations, racing wins, world records and industry firsts along the way.

A 1920 Indian Scout earned the title of the “world’s fastest Indian” at the hands of Burt Munro in 1967. The new Scout is powered by an all-new, 69 cubic inch, 100 HP V-twin engine that combines the design, performance and reliability elements that made the original Scouts unstoppable and combines it with cutting edge technologies and industry-leading engineering for unparalleled durability and reliability. The 2015 Indian Scout is available at a starting MSRP of $10,999.
