  • The ULTIMATE classic rock compilation

    So I'm putting together the ULTIMATE classic rock compilation and wanted to get your help on this. I figure a 100 different set of eyes are better then 1. What I'm going for is that traditional 70's classic rock sound. I know it gets sloppy and there's going to be alot of bands and songs that are sorta cross over and some that others think are classic rock but they're really not. Take a look at my current list and if you can suggest something I don't have, please do so. That's why I posted this hear. FYI - don't suggest bands like Styx, Foreigner, Journey (most of it anyway), Boston, etc. That's NOT classic rock. That was the next era following classic rock, and yes some of the songs do crossover so that said, let's hear what you have. Oh yeah, and even though much of Zeppelin, Aerosmith and things like that I don't consider classic rock. They were too much of a niche sound (although F'n fantastic) and I don't consider classic rock. Just listen to some of the songs below and you'll know that sound I'm going for. Things like Magic Carpet Ride, Long Cool Woman, Sweet Home Alabama, Black Betty, etc.

        I heard that if you leave Led Zeppelin of any kind of list with the word "Rock" in it that you are sentenced to death.

                  I don't know how I left those off. I had a great list several years back and had my HD crash on me and lost everything. I want to say I had those 2 on there but must have just forgotten to add them back. Those are 2 that definitely should be on the list. Thanks.

                    Yes I've heard both. Will add to the list. This is what I was looking for, I knew there were some great songs I've heard that I consider classic rock but just needed some others to chip in and help me remember and also give me some new ones I may not have heard before. Thanks.

                        But they are still considered "classic rock", whether you like them or not.

                            Really? That's called Heavy Metal dude. Same with Black Sabbath. Try again.
