Where’s my Led Zeppelin, dammit?

April 18, 2012 at 2:48 pm (Stuff that Bugs Me Right Now) ()

So I’m having to drive the van for work, which only gets your basic radio stations (which is annoying enough, if you ask me), and the classic rock station starts playing Green Day?

Like, since when is Green Day classic rock?

Or even rock at all? I always thought they were pop-punk.

    I’m pretty sure the definition for Classic Rock is anything 20+ years old, which does fit Green Day. And yes, that makes me feel really old, and very sad. Also, it would annoy me, except that i have “Tales of Brave Ulysses” by Cream going through my head this afternoon, so i’m doing fine 🙂

      By definition, “Classic Rock” should include music that is not only “classic,” (i.e., “old,” apparently) but also “rock.”
      Which Green Day is definitely not.
      Also, classic shouldn’t mean old. It should mean classic.
      Like Zeppelin, dammit.
      Man, I hate the radio.

        Well… “rock” is a very broad category. While i agree that Green Day sucks, I’d have to say that pop-punk still falls under the category of “rock.” However, your point about “classic” meaning “classic” instead of “old,” is an excellent point.

        As for the radio, you oughtta listen to Mojo. They play a lot of crap i don’t like, but since they’re the only non-corporate FM station in town, their playlists are much more broad and generally cool than anyone else. I mean, where else are you gonna hear Charlie Daniels and Ton(e?) Loc back-to-back?

        In my nightmares?

        How could you not want to hear “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” and “The Funky Cold Medina” back-to-back? Peanut butter and chocolate, peanut butter and chocolate.

        Oh, there’s many reasons.
