Classic Rock, whatever fits

Discussion in 'Music genres, Bands and Artists' started by GhtFuqt, Jan 24, 2014.

  1. I've been trying to fill the void in my life that is the lack of great music. Unfortunately I was raised listening to the "hits" station and have only had little excerpts of good music. I know that classic rock (led zep, billy joel, styx, the police, rolling stones) has always sounded fucking amazing even when I'm sober. Help me build my library.. Currently I have (I pick the songs I like, I don't keep entire albums)
    Bad Company
    Billy Joel
    Black Sabbath
    Bob Marley
    Elton John
    Fleetwood Mac
    Grand Funk Railroad
    Johnny Cash
    Led Zeppelin
    Lynryd Skynrd
    Motley Crue
    Phil Collins
    Pink Floyd
    Ram Jam
    Steely Dan
    Steve Miller Band
    Steve Winwood
    The Animals
    The Clash
    The Doobie Brothers
    The Eagles
    The Police
    The Rolling Stones
    The Who

    No prob man happy to aid you in your quest for actual music. The list you have are all on my phone. Just love throwing on the headphones and baking out to music created by actual musicians not computers. Thing about Classic rock is it is an ever changing genre because as time goes by what is new becomes old. There isn't much that has come out in the past 5-10 yrs that will ever be consider "classic"
    One thing to try tho is to listen to many of these bands albums Front to back as that is how they were intended back then. For the most part they didn't hold back songs to sell their next album. Download some "discography" torrents of these bands, keep all the tunes so you'll always be covered. On the other hand greatest hits compilations would give you the staples of the bands to at least introduce you.
    Other bands to look into:
    David Bowie / Mott the Hoople
    Rod Stewart /  The Faces
    Iron Butterfly (throw on InnaGaddaDavida and just listen)
    Jethro Tull
    Janis Joplin
    Deep Purple
    Joe Cocker
    Meatloaf (Bat out of Hell front to back)
    Marshall Tucker Band
    Simon and Garfunkel
    Stevie Wonder
    Travelling Wilbury's
    Ted Nugent
    Humble Pie
    Arlo Guthrie
    Blue Oyster Cult
    Peter Frampton
    Max Webster
    Talking Heads
    Derek and the Dominos
    Dire Straits
    Van Morrison
    Iron Maiden
    Judas Priest
    KISS (70's)
    Def Leppard
    Nirvana  (especially live)
    Pearl Jam
    Damn I could go on and on but I gotta stop for now. Go after these bands and you will be well on your way to some awesome baked out listening (don't just hear it Listen to it).
