Not quite classic rock but Don MacLean's "American Pie" is my least favorite song of all time. Fuck you, Don MacLean.

I couldn't agree more.  Every time I hear that song I want to smash something with a hammer.

It's a cool song, but have you guys seen the cover art for the new Pink Floyd album? It's really something.



Listening to this right now. It's basically a new age album with some bluesy solos. It's about what I expected it would sound like.

EDIT: Spoke too soon. There's some rockin' moments on this.

Has "Come Sail Away" (or anything by Styx, really) been raked across the coals yet? I've heard that song incessantly over the past few weeks and each time I hate it a little bit more.

I always enjoy "Fooling Yourself" whenever I hear it.  I'm with you on most of their other stuff, particularly "Lady" and "Babe."  "Come Sail Away" is kind of a guilty pleasure, but I definitely wouldn't want to hear it more than a couple times a year.

So we can update the spreadsheet every time American Pie or Sweet Caroline makes us reach for the station dial?

Only mildly related comment since I don't know if any of songs mentioned in this post constitute as classic rock (although I think I've heard at least one of them played on a classic rock station). After getting diagnosed with conjunctivitis this afternoon, the first two songs I heard on the radio were "In Your Eyes" and "Private Eyes" :o

A friend of mine who DJs at another station says he's going to dedicate Corey Hart's "Sunglasses At Night" to me. 8)

Definitely not. Only scenario where it comes remotely close to sucking is if it comes on the radio after you've been diagnosed with pinkeye. Even then it's hilariously ironic!

Jefferson Airplane "Somebody To Love" is pretty awful and I've never ever been a fan of Bruce Springsteen.

Not gonna say hate, but Spirit In The Sky went from a song I was fine with to a song I never want to hear again due to many movies it has appeared in over the last twenty years or so. I'm blaming Guardians Of The Galaxy.  In just 2016/17 alone it appeared in Suicide Squad, TMNT: Out Of The Shadows, Mr. Right, I Am Not A Serial Killer, The Founder, Life, and I Tonya.

Hey! Me and my friend Nic started a classic rock podcast. Each week, we take a look back at a Billboard Rock Chart (from any time from the inception of the Mainstream Rock Chart in 1981 to 2012 when Spotify became prominent way to listen to music) and discuss the songs.

On the first episode, we count down the first Billboard Rock Chart from March 20th, 1981. So if you want to hear me and my friend Nic ramble about classic rock that fuckin sucks from 1981, here ya go.

Oh shit. If I can't listen on the plane home, I will when I get back.

I have no idea how much regular plays it really gets but local radio has busted out "Temporary Secretary" by Paul McCartney and I can't believe that shit is real. It's awful, but man I wish I could've gotten drunk and listened to Devo with Sir Paul way back.

This is somewhat ironic to me since I always used the first Billboard Rock Chart as the dividing line between "classic" rock and more contemporary rock, as it started to branch out into different styles and variations by this time.

Yeah, it is kind of interesting. Cause I think the era we're talking about on the podcast is the long, slow, and often sad decline of classic rock.

We have couple episodes in the vault already and boy howdy, the ones in the late '80s/early '90s are pretty grim with the stars of the '60s and '70s attempts to stay relevant.

Late 80s/Early 90s rock was HORRID.  Thankfully, the alternative boom was right around the corner.

That last comment kind of ties into just of my podcast is how our perception of the past DOESN'T reflect on Billboard Rock Charts. Hair metal made very little impact and the only time Nirvana hit #1 on the Mainstream Rock Charts was with "You Know You're Right", almost a decade after Cobain died.

I think it's because some stations were slow to incorporate the alternative boom into their playlists.  By that time (mid-90s), bands like Pearl Jam and STP were at the top of the heap.

Dave Matthews Band fans threaten to riot if the band doesn't make the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame on first ballot.

I don't want to know what a DMB superfan induced riot looks like but I imagine it ends with Cleveland smelling worse than it already does.

I have relatives that live in Charlottesville so they're massive DMB superfans (I think they're too passive to participate in any sort of Cleveland soy latte riot though). My aunt snuck an embarrassing photo of Dave Matthews mid situp at the gym  ;D ;D ;D :o

This year's Rock N Roll Hall of Fame Inductees; Depeche Mode, The Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious BIG and T. Rex.

They're going to have a hell of a time figuring out what to play at the all star jam at the end...

I'm glad T. Rex got in and I think NIN are about as deserving as it gets for non grunge '90s rock bands but we are clearly now in the "Sure. Why not?" era of RNR Hall of Fame inductees.

Not a song I think sucks (on the contrary, in fact) but "Black Hole Sun" has been getting played more and more frequently on my local classic rock station.
