Classic Rōck

Recommended Posts

ChossenOne

I couldn't find any classic rock topics that weren't created by Slamman and/or died 2 years ago. And there was no such topic listed here. Now, I am lazy, and failed to look any further back than November 2008. But that would be to big of a BUMP, right? I'm not totally sure what classifies as "classic" these days. I 'spose 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s would do. Everything from AC/DC to Zeppelin, Led.

So without further ado... Let the good times roll!.

I feel sorry for your father.

 

On topic: I love classic rock just as much as the next person, but since it's played non-stop on the radio I've had just about as much as I can take. It's rarely something I willingly put on to listen to, but it's always there to comfort me.

I hate the radio mostly due to the fact that they only play the exact same set of songs day in day out. It's also only the obvious songs that are played too never something that no one really here's. For example on the radio they always play Another Brick in The Wall Part2, do have any clue how many other great songs are on The Wall album? I'll take my own playlist over the radio any day of the week because I know my library is more vast then pretty much any radio station or any DJ on the radio.

Who is that song by I've never heard of it. My favourite song at the moment that is classic rock has to be BABA O RILEY by the who.

Because a lot of the songs from The Wall are not as easily accessible as "Another Brick In The Wall, Pt. I/The Happiest Days of Our Lives/Another Brick In The Wall, Pt. II", "Young Lust", "Hey You", "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell". You think people who've never heard the album are going to know that "Bring the Boys Back Home" is Pink Floyd, or that it's even rock? "Vera", "Goodbye Cruel World", "The Show Must Go On", "Stop", "Outside The Wall", etc. wouldn't work on the radio. However I have heard "Mother" and "Goodbye Blue Sky" on the radio before, along with the songs I mentioned as being the most popular from the album.

 

Anyway, I don't listen to the radio. I've got my '60s, '70s and '80s playlists for when I want to hear rock from those decades.

It's the exact same song. Baba O'Riley is the proper name, Teenage Wasteland is just a misprint of the name. The thought that it's called teenage wasteland comes from it saying teenage wasteland a number of times within the song.

Do it, dude. I bought SA on xbox live arcade the other day and have been loving it.

 

Anyway, I've been jamming to some Stones lately as well as some Tom Petty. Great summertime music. Classic rock is, hands down, my favorite genre.

 

edit - Another good one just came up on my ipod: James Gang's Funk 49..

I like pretty much all songs by Queen and The Beatles.

Aerosmith is pretty cool too, and there are a couple other classic bands out there that I like.

Also, AC/DC.

But those topics were created by me for a real reason, LOVE!! More then life, music is my passion, I love Rock till I die. Thrash, Grindcore, Heavy Metal, melodic, operatic, progressive?!... Many different styles of just good music with guitars, drums, and bass providing the backing.

 

Ah, for some 70s retro KICK YOUR ASS TILL IT BLEEDS rock, some of the best ever committed to vinyl. NAZARETH...

Slamman you bastard!!!!

 

Before I post my song, you all have to listen to my short story. It is beyond a vivid memory for me.

Back in the day tounge2.gif :

While driving to the mall with my mother we stopped to pick some cat 'o nine tails along side the road. Discarded along side of the road was the 8 track of Nazareth Hair of the Dog. It was the first time I heard it and I played the sh*t out of from that day on. My older friend down the street (huge Kiss fan) mocked me and said it was 'pop'.

 

Now how in the hell could this classic be called 'pop'?

I got into the band mainly with their release 2XS, which was about 1984. They have a rich 70s history, and I always felt there's a band that's under-rated, even then. I do recall someone in Jr High or High School who was seen wearing a Nazareth ball cap, I never got lucky there, but this band should be every bit as vital and respected as AC/DC, they are VERY similar!

I was listening to some Nazareth earlier. Changin' Times

I only found them earlier this year. Glad I did. This was my song of the month for May:

 

 

Epic, man. Better than KISS, IMO.

For me, in my youth, FLAMING YOUTH was where it's at so KISS were my musical universe, They were prolific and larger then life enough to make it reality. Other bands without a presentation like Kiss wouldn't automatically cater to a younger demographic, so as you get on, you see how the pieces fit. In 1979 however, I'd say Pink Floyd rocked my World, and soon after, the bands UFO and MSG!

 

 

 

Solo cut at the critical moment, ARGH!!!! Well, you know it I hope!

You BB code the last part (the random alpha characters), so to open with a BB code :

To close the script with a BB code; ...just remember the "/" or they won't work, no matter what specific BB code, they follow the same syntax.

 

ROCK the QUEENIE! hahaha, I forgot to add...

Time for a well deserved bump for this topic. Just got hold of a pack of "500 greatest rock songs of all time" pack, and I've never really strayed into this genre much before, due to a narrow-minded pre-judgement of these groups, but now I'm loving the genre. A few of the stand out songs for me at the moment from this pack include the following:

 

 

 

^Goes absolutely perfect whilst smoking a joint or two. inlove.gif

 

 

 

^Unless someone did a cover of this, think my dad used to play it as the first time I played it yesterday I instantly recognised it.

 

I already listen to groups such as The Who and whatnot, after my brother got me into it all at a young age.
