Classic Rock.

I know a lot of the forum members are rock, metal, punk, rap fans. As expected of course, I enjoy all those as well, but how many of you actually hold a deep regard for the classics? I have quite the fondness for the rock 'n roll music of the 50's-70s. Back when music wasn't divided by races. No, back when bands/artists like The Who, Jefferson Airplane, Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, The Doors, The Mamas and The Papas, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Alice Cooper to name a few were on everyone's radio. Before all the really heavy metal, punk, and sub-genres took over. Where are all the hippy, stoner rockers? Whose busting out The Grateful Dead, Sly and the Family Stone, Foghat, who I ask!? Surely there must be some fans out there. The showmanship, the mythology, the backstage stories, the lifestyles, the music, oh the music, these artists are legends. Where are the fans?

I am a big fan of pretty much all of the bands you have just listed, I have always loved AC/DC and a bit of Led Zepplin. The who's My generation is still and amazing hit and the Stones are f!cking brilliant smile.gif. You also noted Foghat, I like slow ride, but have never really heard much of their other stuff, slow ride is a good song, is the rest of their music like that? Jimi Hendrix is just the sh!t, he really is. All along the watchtower is probably my favorite.

 

Currently I think it is just a shame how all music is just so commercialised, not like when the bands used to play because they liked playing for the crowds.

At the moment only a tiny percentage of the music I like, Black Stone Cherry for example is brilliant in my opinion, as are the Arctic Monkeys (May not be classed as rock monocle.gif)

All that rubbish like Rihanna is just plain blech in my opinion, it's all the same.

 

Well that's my say

I'm a big fan of all the bands listed above, and more. Don't forget bands like The Beetles, Cream, The Allman Brothers, CCR, Skynyrd, Stepenwolf, Iron Butterfly, the Band, and all the others I haven't listed.

I wish i could go back and be re-born in the late 50's so i could see all the greats that don't just tour for the money but for the love of the music. Doing gigs in pubs and sh*t like that. That and to see some decent chicks who didn't pack on the mack-up.

Thin Lizzy. Often forgotten when mentioning legends like Hendrix. But an exellent band, and very underestimated in my eyes.

Ever get the feeling that you suck?

Is it fair to say the bands named in this topic completely own the bands we have today? I think so...Now, it's all about going platinum and making vast sums of money, fitting into a 'scene.' Then, it was all for the love of the music. I still wished I could have attended Woodstock.

 

I'm sorry I didn't list the Beatles, they're fantastic. Before they all split up and Paul started Wings....

I don't care what you say, Jimi Hendrix is the best artist ever (except making lyrics, that's bob dylan wink.gif ). He took rock to another stage. I don't know how rock would be without him. It's just sad that his carreer was so short. It's also sad the bands we have today.

I like classic rock, but not so much the hard rock that often gets lumped in with classic rock (with the exception of Led Zeppelin).

 

The Beatles are my favorite band and I love Geroge Harrison's solo stuff. Lennon's solo stuff is great too, but Harrison's All Things Must Pass is one of my favorite albums evarrr <3.

 

bands/musicians I listen to often that are "classic rock" (bad genre name really)

 

-The Beatles

-George Harrison

-John Lennon

-Led Zeppelin

-Pink Floyd

-The Velvet Underground

-Lou Reed

-The Doors

-The Jimi Hendrix Experience (way more than solo Hendrix)

-Grateful Dead

-Creedence Clearwater Revival

-Bob Dylan and The Band

-George Thorogood and The Destroyers

-Cream

 

 

-edit-

That's some ignorant bullsh*t. Bands from the past are not comparable to bands of today, period. They are a different sound, different era, different influences, ect. How can you generalize so vastly that you can state that there is no more love of music and everyone just wants to cash in. Or that everyone band lives to fit a genre. Remember when it was cool to buy vintage Rock tees at target, that wasn't profit driven at all. sarcasm.gif I'm honestly so pissed at this statement that I'm ending my response with you're a f*cking moron.

Well that's just your opinion really although I think he's quite a good artist. I quite like a few of the bands listed here although I'm not really into The Beatles or the members solo works.

 

Although I've heard nothing but good things about Led Zeppelin, could someone recommend me an album of theirs, I've never actually heard anything apart from Stairway to Heaven and the Immigrant Song.

I think it's fair to say that our pop-culture is in a decline. Although what he said was a huge generalization, you have to remember that most of those bands were actually popular back in the day. Looking at today's music, it seems that popular music has been dumbed down immensely. I mean, there is good music being produced nowadays, but barely any of it is relevant to 'pop-culture.'

 

 

 

Bonus Question: Why is T-Pain in every popular song nowadays?

Billboard top 100 1969

 

1969 was the year of Woodstock. Yet, this top 100 popular songs for 1969 doesn't seem as damning as you guys are making it out to be.

 

Seriously, stop generalizing. The past is not what you thought it was.

This song owns, though. tounge.gif

 

 

 

They had the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan on that list. How is it comparable to our list, which was just recently riddled with American Idol runner-ups if memory serves me correct? Also, Linkin' Park.

Wow, didn't think I'd ignite such a heated response, it's quite flattering. However, you went about it rather hostile, don't you think? "f*cking moron", really? OK...Glad to see senior members acting so respectful over a post given no thought.

 

Well, I guess people cannot have the minute freedom to have an opinion. Especially an opinion praising the point of this topic, Classic Rock. I'm generalizing because what's popular, what clogs the charts is for a large part pop bullsh*t. But I'm not fishing for a fight here. I was just feeling the spirit of the topic and giving a post of respect for the music. Like when people say, Go Yankees!, Mets suck! They're just Yankees fans hailing the Yankees, with no regard for the Mets. I'm a classic rock fan hailing classic rock, and I dearly apologize for displaying no regard for today's music. I really didn't put a lot of thought into that post, never thought anyone would, but hey, you got it off your chest so it's fine.

 

In conclusion, CLASSIC ROCK is awesome, and so is today's music...

*Disclaimer*

No one genre, era, or style of music holds more love of the art than another, no more contempt of profiting, or skill at their craft. It all comes down to talent, dedication, and hard work.

Well obviously you didn't think before you posted, it seems to be a general theme.

I'm not being a 'music bigot' or anything; I just think that, on the whole, our popular music culture is in a decline. That statement isn't based on stereotypes or assumptions, but on a simple comparison. There's nothing wrong with comparing and 'rating' music. confused.gif

 

Sure you can say that it's a matter of taste--and it is to some extent--but there's no denying that at least some popular music in 1969 actually had political and social meaning. Now we have Carrie Underwood singing about slashing the tires on her boyfriend's truck(?), T-Pain objectifying women and condoning mindless consumerism, and Jordin Sparks, with her super-edgy name, talking about getting Tattoos when we all know that tattoos stopped being cool in the late 90s. tounge.gif

 

I'll drop it like it's hot, though.

Well that's a little unfair to say. One look in the IV forums and I look like mod-material...

 

I really wanna avoid bad blood here.

If you want to avoid bad blood then don't mix IV forum and mod material.

Although I've heard nothing but good things about Led Zeppelin, could someone recommend me an album of theirs, I've never actually heard anything apart from Stairway to Heaven and the Immigrant Song.

Wow, where do I even begin?

 

Let's see, there's Fool in the Rain, The Wanton Song, Misty Mountain Hop, Trampled Under Foot, Dancing Days, Moby Dick/Bonzo's Monteux, Dazed and Confused, When the Levee Breaks, Houses of the Holy, In the Evening, Hey Hey What Can I Do?, Rock & Roll, Black Dog, etc.

 

I know that's a lot of songs, but these are some of my favorites. I'm sure that you've heard some of these before, because some of these were huge hits. There's a lot more that I'm missing, but I don't want to water-down this post with Led Zeppelin songs.

 

If you don't want to spend time by searching for individual tracks, then here's a list of their albums from first to last:

 

-Led Zeppelin

-Led Zeppelin II

-Led Zeppelin III

-Led Zeppelin IV

-Houses of the Holy

-Physical Graffiti

-Presence

-In Through the Out Door

 

It may be a lot to recommend at once, so maybe you should just start by checking out their first album, and seeing if you like what you hear and then moving on from there.

Deal, that's a bad gauge for modship. Now let us have our opinions.

-Led Zeppelin

-Led Zeppelin II

-Led Zeppelin III

-Led Zeppelin IV

-Houses of the Holy

-Physical Graffiti

-Presence

-In Through the Out Door

 

Don't forget the legendary BBC Sessions, it's Zeppelin at their finest. It's a double album that's just classic after classic like Hearbreaker, That's the Way, Black Dog, Whole Lotta Love and Immigrant Song. Sensational stuff all around, and I'd check it out if you can.

 

I think The Song Remains the Same is pretty solid too, but it's not the seminal classic that BBC Sessions is for me. I'd say they're both worth a look though. smile.gif

 

 

just another thug, that list is f*ckin stacked, man. The Stones, Elvis, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Sly and the Family Stone and The Foundations are all historic bands...not to mention three of Creedence's best jams ever!! That's a Hall of Fame roster if ever I've seen one...it's not all classic rock, but it's great music. I'm with you that the two era's aren't comparable...but I'd take that list over almost all of the pop music I hear on the radio these days.
