    Something I started thinking about when my wife and I were talking about Appetite turning 30. Songs that pump the blood and make you want to crank the volume...UP!

    Foriegner: Juke Box Hero
    George Thorogood: Bad to the Bone
    Golden Earring: Radar Love
    Green Day: Holiday
    Jars of Clay: Flood
    Zeppelin: (This was the hardest. cliche as it is, I picked Stairway)
    The White Stripes: Seven Nation Army

    There are some positively bad ass heavy metal covers of Twilight Zone out there too.

    And a kick ass metal version of Kenny Loggins Danger Zone.

    I turn it up for Heavy Metal, Baroque, or Bagpipes with heavy drums. Naturally, as I am a Gentleman, I don't listen to Confederate music.

    Yes, that's is much better than watching the hot chicks on the original dancing to a great Latin beat... hey! you know how I know you're.... oh, never mind...:roll:

    And I'll add Santana to my short list, specially Smooth.

    I listened to rock I'm my youth but in the late 70's or 80's I got to where I didn't care for it much. I listened to oldies for a while but that got old then I heard a garth brooks song and I started listening to country. I didn't like old country but have got to where I appreciate now. I can't take some of the new country or country rap but I do like some of the songs coming out now. Siggal we went to the Grand ole opry and was very disappointed too. Downtown Nashville is quite enjoyable though.

    Some Golden Earing trivia: The band still tours, and they've been together since 1961. They formed the band when most of them were 13 years old!! Of course band members have changed over the years, but they've been the same since 1970.

    Smooth is barely Santana in my book. Old school Santana is cool though. Back when Greg Rolie was singing and Neil Schon on guitar. Those guys split and formed Journey. Journey was good, until Greg Rolie split in 81. He never found commercial success after that...shame.

    When Greg Rolie left, Jonathan Cain came in from The Babies, Journey flipped from blues rock to pop and they've sucked ever since.

    I have NOT always disliked every rock song mentioned here so far. Being stuck working in a restaurants' kitchen for the better part of my early adulthood, classic rock radio was the only option to listen to at work. Pretty much all the standard classic rock anthems are now dead to me. It is sad as they were all once like good friends that I visited from time to time, but thanks to these stations and their 10 or 15 song daily playlist of Zeppelin, Skynyrd, Bad Co, Doobies, Who, Floyd, Stealy Dan, Hendrix, Foreigner, Clapton, Van Halen, .38 spl, Boston, Journey, Eagles, these stations made these "friends" seem like bums who cleaned out my refrigerator, spilled beer on my couch, ran up the phone bill, ordered every porn movie on my cable box, and paid for none of it.

    Some how 80% Rolling Stones' songs are still quite tolerable to listen to today.

    Old school Sanatana was indeed great but I'm not one to stand in the way of progress. Smooth appealed to a wider audience and the collaboration with Rob Thomas worked, landing them both a huge hit. It's a great song that has catchy lyrics, great rhythm and good vocals with enough Sanatana Latin flair to make you tap your feet and "turn it up". I'm a guitarist but I'm also a percussion guy and while I definitely miss Chepito raw pounding on the skins Smooth (and for that matter the whole album Supernatural) was a much more polished production.

    Also, add in anything by Jimmy Buffett. His A1A album is my all time favorite, and A Pirate Looks at 40 easily makes my top 10 list.

    Anything by Guy Clark or Jerry Jeff Walker.

    Moody Blues are/were great, but I hardly ever hear them played on the oldies stations. Seems like every other song is Rolling Stones or The Steve Miller band, which has led me to have a healthy dislike for both.

    For likes, add in a lot of 60s/70s rock, such as Steppenwolf, Iron Butterfly (can you say InnaGoddaDivida), Crean (or anything by Clapton).
    Jerry

  • AntonioAntonio Senior Member Posts: 2,285 Senior Member
    Nice selections....agree with many of them.

    In my mind comes "Good times bad times" (Led Zeppelin), "Highway to hell" (AC/DC) and "Daughter" (Pearl Jam).

    There's but a few Rolling Stones songs I can handle. Never was a fan. Yeah, they were mainly before my time, but I like a lot of music that was before my time. Steve Miller is just....strange. Some stuffs ok, some was obviously penned in a drug induced stupor.
