The Stern Show welcomed an incredible lineup of musical guests in 2016, from up-and-coming pop stars to unquestionable rock legends. This year's slate of musical masters performed a smattering of spectacular songs, including new singles, chart-topping classics, and several Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, and Beatles covers. Take a look back at the year in musical guests:
In March the classic rock legend chatted with Howard before performing a Beatles cover, as well as one of his own classics.
The Coldplay frontman spoke to Howard about performing in the Super Bowl Halftime Show, and then covered a David Bowie classic.
The band stopped by in April to celebrate its long-deserved Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. Stern Show listeners were also treated to live performances of two of the band's hits.
The young pop star performed "All About That Bass" during her debut in May.
The longtime rocker performed a medley of his hits in June, including "The Joker" and "Gangster of Love," after being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The band stopped by in June to play songs off its new cover album, "Train Does Led Zeppelin II." This led Howard to dare the band's drummer to attempt the solo from "Moby Dick."
The 20-year-old Norwegian singer-songwriter visited the show in July and talked dead moths before covering a David Bowie classic.
The legendary metal band performed "Sad but True," "Master of Puppets," and its new single "Hardwired" in September, ahead of the release of its new album.
In October, the iconic punk rock band returned to the Stern Show and performed "Welcome to Paradise," "Holiday," and its new single "Bang Bang."
The returning Stern Show guest revealed in October that she was once in a Led Zeppelin cover band ... and then she proved it.
Jon Bon Jovi
The New Jersey-born rock star returned to the show in October and performed "Runaway" for Howard.
The legendary solo artist and Police frontman performed a new tune and several classics in November, including "Message in a Bottle."
