Yup.  You played in a few bars, didn't you?  Been there.  Hated that. 

Yeah, more than I would care to admit, although I did tour professionally for about 10 years.

I don't listen to the radio like I once did, but these songs will cause me to break a finger smashing the radio buttons to get the channel changed in time: Steve Miller: Anything. Everything. His

Right there with you on Nicks.  I describe her voice as a bleating goat and her lyrics as angsty middle school girl poetry.  She screwed her way into the band and then caused more than her fair share

Will the setlist be all of the songs/artists mentioned in this thread?

lol!  Don't forget the Kars For Kids jingle.
But again, we're talking about played out songs from long-established artists.

Sheesh. I'd not seen that and I'm not better off for having taken the bait.  But...I'm not sure it's any better than this shitty earworm from the late-80s:

 

You're welcome.

The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is really anything by Journey or Fleetwood Mac post Peter Green.  I never liked Journey, but I did, at one time, like Fleetwood Mac all right.  Ever since School of Rock it seems, there has been this resurgence of women who seem to seriously think of Stevie Nicks as some kind of witchy, middle-aged role model.   It's so cringe inducing that it pretty much completely put me off the band.

Holy reeks of the desperation of starving musicians, Batman.

Doood! Stones get a pass; I mean they’re, you know, Jagger & Richard! Nothing Mick and Keef do is uncool.

Bruce Kulick said the same thing about Rock N Roll All Nite. 

When my band played it we always had people singing along.  It made the bar crowd happy.

Absolutely. It's a crowd pleaser for the most part. But after rehearsing and performing it thousands of times, you'll beg for mercy.

If you feel like you've got to have it in the playlist, try segueing into "Land of 1000 Dances" during the drum break for a chorus and a verse before ending it Alive! style.  Or is that just as bad?

Check out the Bob Welch era, ca. '70-'75. No Nicks.

Supposedly (according to the note attached to the YooToob post), Brian Jones wrote the music, while the advertising company they did it for supplied the lyrics.

Reminds me of this clip from Sid and Nancy...video quality's not the best, there's longer versions of the whole scene on YooToob that are clearer, but you have to sit through more of it for Nancy's reaction:

BTW, has anyone mentioned Wagon Wheel yet?

I'd gladly listen to most of what's been listed if I never have to hear Yngwie Malmsteen decide he needs to sing again.  

Oh, sorry, I meant Yngwie J. Malmsteen, should you think I was referring to one of the myriad of other Yngwie Malmsteens in the music business.

"Once you get the hang of his name...." being the greatest line of that rant.

I got Yngwie stories for days.....

For some reason, we ran into each other a lot back in the day in LA (and not because of my 'talent' lol)

My wife absolutely HATES  "Lime and Coconut"

and if we are both together and I want to play it, I'll be calling the doctor, wake him up and say...

Don't know how I missed this thread, but it's reducing down to a simmering sauce that exposes classic rock radio for the 500 song rotation that it is.

That said, I HATE THE FUCKING EAGLES.

 

 

 

 

 

 

*I could listen to Ray Charles sing Georgia on my Mind and Susan Tedeschi sing Angel from Montgomery for the rest of my life

Using your 500-song example, I hate that if you listen to a Clear Channel classic rock station anywhere in the country, the song list is 450 of the same songs and 50 that might be more popular in that area.

I just watched a documentary on Amazon Prime about the corporate radio takeover.  Some of my friends worked for one of the biggest stations in my area and the stories they told me were very similar to the ones in the doc.  It's called Corporate FM for anyone who is interested.

Luckily there is a tiny station in Ashland, VA (WHAN) that plays whatever the hell they want to.  If they say they're going to play a Cars song it will probably be Candy-o or Moving In Stereo or something even deeper.  They also play deep country gospel on Sunday mornings and bluegrass a good part of the day.  I often find myself saying "I know that's [whatever band] but I don't know that song".  I've used Shazam listening to them dozens of times and I'm sure it will continue.  The only problem is their signal is very weak.  I live less than 10 miles from the station and you can only pick them up for about 15-20 so as soon as I leave the house I get about 5-10 minutes to listen to them before I'm out of range.
