ok ok, i admit it, i'm a classic rock nut. i love led zeppelin, the beatles, the who, eric clapton, the doors, and so on. most of the bands i listen to broke up years before i was born. at 17, nearly every song on my playlist is older than me. but is it just my imagination, or is classic rock experiencing sort of a revival. i am running into an increasing number of classic rock fans my age. at my school (an all boys high school), the school newspaper took a poll of everyone's favorite genre and band. led zeppeling got 5th and the beatles got 6th, behind that rap crap. classic rock made up a large percent of ppls favorite genre. is this just by me, or are other ppl noticing this too?


This is the thread for general classic rock discussion.

I have always been a classic rock fan. The first band I really liked was Led Zeppelin. From there I started to get into Rush, the Who, Van Halen, Pink Floyd, Boston and Cream. Now I'm more into progressive metal, but I still listen to classic rock from time to time.

yea i was worried that was just my imagination. o i just discovered a great classic rock band by the name of The Moody Blues. now they are good. check out "Nights in White Satin," "Tuesday Afternoon," "Ride my SeeSaw," and "I'm just a singer (in a rock and roll band)."

well i think the best band ever was the Beatles. they had more good songs than any other band i've ever listened to. plus all the songs sounded different. no two beatles songs sounded the same. and while their songs were maybe not on the same level as say Baba O'Reily, Won't Get Fooled Again, or Stairway, they still outdo the other bands by sheer number of good songs. i would love to see another band with the kind of talent they had. maybe that's what the music industry needs to get off this rap crap...

I've noticed kids only liking popular and well known Classic Rock bands, like Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, ect...

They missout on some of the greatest lesser known Classic rock bands. Like The Byrds, or Buffalo Springfield, Big Brother and Holding Company, The Velvet Underground, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Van Morrison, ect. Most of those bands were pretty big in their day, but the kids these days aren't looking for those bands. Usually, they are looking for the heavier, or louder types, but that's only the kids I know.

And of course there are more hugely popular Classic Rock bands that should be known forever. Like, The Who (My favorite). They make music like no other. Each member was fabulous, all craftman. Or The Grateful Dead, who defined a generation, and started a long line of San Fransico bands. Or Crosby, Stills Nash, and Young. Who in many ways were the American, more talented Beatles. They had it all. For most Classic rock listens, that band is usually over looked, and The Grateful Dead.

I recomend all Classic Rock listeners to listen to these lesser known Classic Rock bands

Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, The Hollies, Blind Faith, Big Bro and Holding Company, The Mother of Invention, The Lovin' Spoonful, ect. There is just to much to name.

i love:
Ac Dc
Creedence clearwater revival
Pink Floyd (just got thier best of CD its awesome!)
Tubular bells!!!!
The beatles

I dont think there will ever be a band as good as the beatles because they had three songwriters who could have all easily been Bigger than anything before but lucky for them they were all in the same band. i dont think as much talent could be packed into one band nowadays. Notice on the later albums they all started to explore in thier own directions but they still made **** good songs.

Would ac/dc be counted as classic rock? They are one of my favorite bands but I have always thought that they are just plain rock.

Yea, Buffalo Springfield are like no other. I think it is odd how so many people would say that their favorite member of C,S,N,Y, or Buffalo Springfield is Neil Young. He didn't really write that many songs, but he did play some good guitaring playing. But so many people over look the genius Stephen Stills. Who wrote almost all of the B.S songs, and was the driving force behind C,S,N,Y. He is also one of the greatest acoustic and slide guitarists ever. I try to blab and give appreciation Stills as much as I can.

Classic rock is by far my favourite genre

Of course you've got to love the big names, zeppelin, the who, hendrix, clapton, floyd, beatles, doors.

But i find often it's no good to talk to people about classic rock that only know those bands, unless to introduce them to more. Quite simply because even when talking about those bands they only seem to know the popular songs (stairway always comes up with these types of people). It's alot more fun to talk with people who know, cnsy, the greatful dead, cat stevens, BTO, the guess who, derek and the dominoes, cream, the yardbirds, the eagles, lynyrd skynyrd, jefferson airplane, tull, deep purple, Steppenwolfe, the band, lighthouse, band of gypsies. People that know the members names and all the bands albums, how the band started etc etc...

But ya that was sort of a pointless paragraph, yes i have noticed sort of a revival, and i am also much younger than 99% of the songs i listen too. All of my really close friends listen to classic rock and all my band plays is classic rock. But ofcourse once you get into a larger group of friends you start seeing more rap, hip hop etc. But i do think it's makeing a come back, i'd like to see some new classic rock (as contradictory as that may sound).

Rock n roll and classic rock are pretty much the same thing. At least I think they are anyway...

id call rock n roll things like the beatles, elvis, and at times the rolling stones.
hard rock is more like aerosmith, led zeppelin, etc...

03-17-2004, 12:48 AM
Yeah .. I find myself listening to more and more classic rock...besides Dream Theater. I can't get "Layla" by Eric Clapton outta my head. And "Flirtin' With Disaster" by Molly Hatchet is awesome. Zeppelin is wicked too.

Classic rock is also my favorite genre of rock n roll. I like some of the more recent bands but they pale in comparison to bands before them. My favorite classic rock artists are David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Cream, the Who, and Pink Floyd. The Stooges are really good too.

im a huge fan of bands such as led zeppelin, rush, the beatles, cream, and the who, but the whole catagory of "classic rock" seems debatable. start with 3 bands: the beatles, led zeppelin, rush. they can all be classified as classic rock but dont really sound remotely the same. Led zepplin is blues/rock mainly, the bealtes are brit pop/rock, and rush are a prog rock band, but they can all be considered as classic rock since i guess they reached success during the 60s and 70s. so when i hear people saying "i only like classic rock" they are talking about pretty much any band that played anything but punk from the early 60s to the early 80s. So, you could assume they like bands such as canned heat and the greatful dead which they might of never even heard of. So, i guess its a catagory such as grunge, which basically sums up bands that grew popular in a certain era of time. and about classic rock today, check out the datsuns, they seem like AC/DC meets led zeppelin.

As I see it rock N roll is whenever and classic rock is old rock N roll such as the bands that we have been talking about. I guess the darkness might be rock N roll but they certainly aren't good. And they aren't classic rock because they are recent.

I like lots of classic rock from Zep to Chuck Berry, Deep Purple, Cream, Neil Young & Crazy Horse etc. I saw Neil Young last year..fück was that awesome! I saw Roxy Music in 2001, they were also great. I'm seeing KISS in May!!! I wanna see Deep Purple with Gillan (but no Ritchie) but I have no money! :angry: and it's like at a 500 seat INTIMATE VENUE playing all Machine Head and earlier stuff!!! I'm so disappointed, it was either KISS or DP, Kiss was cheaper and I like them just a little bit more. The Who are rumoured to come out to Aus, and AC/DC to tour again, so hopefully them too :)

Classic rock is awesome, but it isn't experiencing a revival. At least where I'm from, there has always been a large portion of classic rock kids. If anybody wants an awesome band, check out Stratovarius.
Just as a sidenote, everything that isn't rap or pop is awesome (with the exception of bands like Slipknot, whom do not have a genre). By the way, The Darkness is not very retro rock, and are not overly talented.

Ahem! your only missin out the start of Hendrix's career! for me, hard rock started with Hendrix, i hate Zep and consider them, along with the Beatles, to be the most overrated band in history. But thats just my opinion...

Well actually, hard rock started in the early 60's with The Troggs. So we're both wrong, but I corrected myself. And I didn't say '68 because of Zep, I hate them.

Edit: Well now that I think about it. Hard-Rock started out with The Kinks begining in 1964.

who played "classic rock" in '61?

The Beach Boys, and there is actually some bands who are more Blues-Rock, but can still be classified as Classic Rock before '61. Like The Ventures or Johnny Kidd and the Pirates.

i think the master of classic rock is still bob dylan...no1 writes songs like bob dylan...no1 else sings like bob dylan either, which is a good thing. but he plays a mean guitar and harmonica and has written some of the most amazing music ever.

I'm with you there, BOnzO. I too am 17, and while I'm a big fan of new rock as well, I love classic rock. This is probably largely due to my upbringing. I listen to lots of my Dad's CDs. Some of my favourite bands include:
The Beatles
The Eagles
Led Zeppelin
Herman's Hermitts (more pop but yeah..)
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Deep Purple
Billy Joel

And two of my very very very favourites that hardly anyone I know has heard of are:
Supertramp
Badfinger

It would be great to see a classic rock revival.

well i think the best band ever was the Beatles. they had more good songs than any other band i've ever listened to. plus all the songs sounded different. no two beatles songs sounded the same. and while their songs were maybe not on the same level as say Baba O'Reily, Won't Get Fooled Again, or Stairway, they still outdo the other bands by sheer number of good songs. i would love to see another band with the kind of talent they had. maybe that's what the music industry needs to get off this rap crap...

but floyd isn't starting a new popular revival of psychadelia. i wasn't even aware they had new stuff, and if they do, it's not bringing the industry as a whole back to the quality of the classic rock. they aren't getting any radio play, and thus aren't getting new fans. while they are probably bucking the formulas, as they did when they started, the odds of them coming out with another Dark Side, and exploding onto the mainstream of contemperary music is not likely...especially without roger waters

They are a pretty raw blues-rock band, I like them a lot. They are a bit like Zepp but more raw. They also came before Zepp and influenced them a lot.

it must have been great growing up in that time period. where every band that came out was amazing, bands wrote albums instead of hit singles, and everyone was into rock for all the right reasons (which IMO the right reason is because its a lifestyle) rather than a trendy phase.

Yea, I know that and I listen to all of those great bands too(besides The Who). I'm just mentioning The Grateful Dead because they were one of the best, if not the best groups back then(and still now). Plus I'm in a Jerry kinda mood. Also there were more great bands back then like Steppenwolf, Steve Miller, Pink Floyd, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hendrix, Cream, Byrds, Yardbirds, Blue Cheer, The Band, Zappa(not a typo) and maybe a few others a forgot. PHEW!

Most of those bands are good. Especially The Animals, they are true british blues. The Rolling Stones don't play blues half as good as The Animals, yet the R.S are known for doing it best.

thanks you!

Kiss, i never knew what people saw in Kiss until i saw them live and went home and listend to my Kiss cd's and than it hit me....Kiss wrote some of the most energetic, uplifting, and powerful music id ever heard. alot of people know in here that i am an Ace Frehley buff, i love Ace to death...a real bluesy lead pioneer in hard rock bands and you can spot his influence in countless 80's shredders like Freidman and Skolnick among others. Even his 4 solo albums are just incredible rock n roll music the way it was ment to be played, loud and heavy. The fact that all 4 members took turns writing for the band, not to mention singng, Kiss had so much to offer song wise. Rock shows were great before Kiss came around, but when Kiss introduced their side of what they thought a stage show should be like, fans immediatly took onto it, and its not hard to see why. Kiss didnt write songs, they wrote anthems...words to live by, and are the driving force behind what made Rock n Roll a lifestyle for some people. women, sex, drugs, and rock....Kiss are untouchables.

kiss sucks to begin with. who cares whether they're dead or not. they are still better 99% of contemperary music. and many of those artists are coming out with new material. Eric Clapton has released two or three albums in the past couple of years. all of them were quite good. The Yardbirds had a great album after a 20 something year hiatus. the Eagles are back together.

New music is pretty pathetic in general. I like a few new bands like RHCP, audioslave, Nirvana (sort of new I guess) and Dream Theater but none of the stuff these days even comes close to beating bands like Zeppelin, Rush, Ac/dc, Pink floyd, Van Halen, The who x1000, Guns n roses, Jethro Tull, Deep purple... etc. It is better to listen to what is good than what is still out right now.

anyway my favorite classic rock bands include boston, zep, pink floyd, sabbath, rush, ac/dc, and i guess the talking heads would be considered more of a new wave kind of thing, but considering how old some of their stuff is i guess they're classic

A band can be many differnet things. Led Zeppelin did some folk, some rock, some blues, some country and some other kinds of songs. Simon and g-funk had some rock and some folk so they could be be folk/rock. I find that bands that don't limit themselfs to just one kind of music are much better than one dimentional bands.

the odds of them coming out with another Dark Side, and exploding onto the mainstream of contemperary music is not likely...especially without roger waters

IMO Syd Barrett>Roger Waters

I've been saying that all my life; I don't know how any band can play just one particular style, looks like things would get pretty tedious. I guess they're just trying to stick with what they're good at, but what about people that only listen to (mostly) one genre? I've never had a favorite band that was one-dimensional.

Moroii
03-24-2004, 03:24 AM
Yeah. Greatest band ever. I worship them, I have all of their cds exept for Zeppelin 3 and that's only because I heard is wasn't all that good so I decided to spend my money on some Neil young and Pink Floyd. I'll get Zeppelin 3 soon though.
Zeppelin are my fave, too; I fell in love with rock music to the sound of Page playing a Telecaster (w/ a bow, occasionally.) Page is the most influential guitarist for me (Jimi's second, of course). Almost every aspect of his playing appeals to me; I share most of his interests music-wise. Especially the way Zep used dynamics and atmosphere, which lifted them above a lot of heavy bands at the time, and especially later on.

The only thing is, I hope like Badmoon said that people aren't overlooking bands from that era and just listening to Zeppelin, Floyd and the Beatles. I know alot of my favorites tend to be pretty obvious, but I'm just being honest about what I like.

EDIT: Sorry 'bout posting three times in a row, I thought someone would have posted between them by now.

i wouldn't call van halen entirely one dimensional. i mean u can't even compare "hot for teacher" with "i can't stop loving u". but ac/dc is pretty one dimensional.

Alice Cooper, I recomend everyone to see him. There is no doubt in my mind that he does the greatest shows.

The Who, they're not as energetic as they used to be, yet still fabulous.

ok ok, i admit it, i'm a classic rock nut. i love led zeppelin, the beatles, the who, eric clapton, the doors, and so on. most of the bands i listen to broke up years before i was born. at 17, nearly every song on my playlist is older than me. but is it just my imagination, or is classic rock experiencing sort of a revival. i am running into an increasing number of classic rock fans my age. at my school (an all boys high school), the school newspaper took a poll of everyone's favorite genre and band. led zeppeling got 5th and the beatles got 6th, behind that rap crap. classic rock made up a large percent of ppls favorite genre. is this just by me, or are other ppl noticing this too?

o and for u classic rock fans, the crime of the new century was that the Yardbirds new CD, Birdland, recieved no attention at all. that deserved a grammy, or 6.

so are there any other classic rock fans out there, and even if ur not, have u been noticing somewhat of a revival in interest for that sort of music?

Not exactly, when you just start listening to classic rock you only know about those few popular, most known bands. After you listen to them for a while though you will start discovering new, equally good bands. You will want to hear more of this awesome genre. That's how everybody starts out. So basicaly just give these kids some time and before you know it they will be rocking out to ALL of the great bands for 60's' 70's, etc.... That's just my theory.............

You do know that whole post I was kidding right? I wasn't attacking his taste I was imitating some of the arrogant people on this forum who would of attacked his opinon. That's why I used the poor spelling and the :rolleyes: smilie. You just made an idiot out of yourself.
No. He is a power metal fan, so it seemed like you were bagging him out. I mistook it the wrong way.

I believe that Sammy's a better singer (And guitar player), but many think different. Both are great for V.H either way.

As long as they have Eddie they will always be good. I like David Lee Roth better but either would be fine.

^ The Allman Brothers must have been crazy. "Blue Sky" = One of the greatest songs ever!!

As I said before Alice Cooper did the best show I've seen. Some runners up would be The Who, and Ted Nugent.

I wouldn't be surprised if he was the best out of them.

cut Townsend.

:angry: No way!

Edit: Add Paul Simon. That is a suggestion not a demand by the way. I just think he had some writing talent.
