I Love Classic Rock

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,411 People

    I am a product of my parents' generation of

    music. Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath/Ozzy Osbourne... I'll take the worst of their songs over a lot of modern music.

    I know HOW it happened,

    but I don't remember which song, in particular, was instrumental in me becoming a life long devotee of the genre. I'm hooked on 60s 70s and 80s "classic rock" and pop. When I was young, my Dad used to play a lot of British rock on the stereo. I used to just love to look at...

    Deja Vu By Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

    One of the best rock songs I've ever heard in my life. Don't believe me? Listen to it. And if you don't get it, keep listening until you do.The song begins at 19:19 although, it could also benefit you to listen to the whole album.

    Everyone in my school is always playing those

    annoying pop songs that play on the radio 24/7. What gets me through the hallways of my school are my earphones playing the classic rock that rules my world.

    Just recently had an MRI done,

    and they asked me if I wanted to listen to music. My answer "as long as it is classic rock, yes please!" Turns out they play good music in those things!

    Highschool is stressful

    and music helps me get through it. Some of my favorite classic rock bands are Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Turtles, The Kinks, Thin Lizzy and the Rolling Stones. There are more but the list is too long. I listen to music constantly... When I shower, when I exercise.. Even when I...

    The Kinks

    I think "The Kinks" are my favourite rock band. When I was a teen-ager I remember listening always the same record with great songs : "The Hard Way" , "Schooldays", "Headmaster". I came to tears sometimes even if I do not understand all the lyrics. I love the voice of the singer...

    I am sitting on the coach listen to the radio

    and a old great song came on. Imagine by John Lennon as I sat in silence listen to the words I could feel tears sliding down my checks. I don't know about anyone else,I know that is a great song. And I will miss him alittle bit more today.

    such a broad, broad genre... But I love a lot of older music, especially rock. Everything from 1940s - 1990s. I could write you pages and pages of my favorite bands... But some of my favorite artists include: The Kinks, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Los Bravos, Chuck Berry, Johnny...

    In my opinion, people are losing touch of the

    real acoustics in music. It's mostly all electro and computer generated music, not that there's anything wrong with that. Anyone can make a mix on a computer and add a bass drop, but you don't see people using real acoustics like back then. It may just be evolution, it may not

    The music of the sixties

    and seventies is still holding up. Even top musicians of today refer back to Bowie, Aeorsmith, Led Zepilien, Black Sabbath, Stevie Wonder, Sly Stone. Those guys stood the test of time and are still relevant.

    here I was this little guy watching Gene S. Blew fire out his mouth. Plus there was 3 other guys all with make up on their faces. I wasn't real sure what they were saying, all that I did know is that parents didn't like the actions. I think that is what got me into classic rock...

    No band exemplifies classic rock better

    than my favorite band, Rush. Their unparallelled instrumentals are just a joy to my ears. Aerosmith, the Eagles, and many more are among my favorites too. Makes me wish I was born in that era!
