Their first album, "ZZ Top's First Album," was released in 1971 and featured songs like "Brown Sugar" and "Just Got Back From Baby's."

The album featured the hit song "La Grange" which became one of their most popular songs.

Throughout the 70s and 80s, ZZ Top continued to release hit albums such as "Fandango!" which included hits such as "Tush" and "Heard It On The X". In the 80s they experimented with synthesizers but quickly went back to their roots after realizing that fans preferred their classic sound.

The band's popularity peaked in the 80s when they released their album "Eliminator." The album featured hits such as "Gimme All Your Lovin'," "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Legs." The album went on to sell over ten million copies worldwide.

Despite a brief hiatus in the early '90s, ZZ Top continued touring throughout the decade. They released several more albums including “Antenna” (1994) which included “Pincushion” which topped Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

In addition to being great musicians, ZZ Top is also known for their distinctive look. They are instantly recognizable thanks to their long beards and sunglasses. In fact, Gibbons once said that he grew his beard so that people would remember him.

ZZ Top has been inducted into the Rock and Roll of Fame, received a Grammy Award and were given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They have also collaborated with several other musicians over the years including Jeff Beck, who they toured with in 2014.
