  1. "Once Bitten, Twice Shy". Ian Hunter's original version was clunky and awkward. Great White took that song and made it their own. I'm amazed I forgot to mention that one in my first post back on the first page of the thread, and even more amazed that no one else here has picked up on it instead.
  2. Didn't they record two or three more albums after Jim Morrison died? (And didn't those two or three albums pretty much completely suck?)
  3. Today was a big day in satellite radio as the recently merged XM and Sirius finally combined their channel lineups. Not surprisingly, the move was aimed at cutting costs by combining and/or eliminating redundant channels. Needless to say, as an XM subscriber (what, you didn't know?) for almost seven years now, this is going to take a lot of getting used to. Even many of the channels that are sticking around have been rebranded (e.g. the channel once called "Top Tracks" is now "Classic Vinyl" but has more or less the same radio-oriented classic rock format) and/or moved to another spot on t
  4. My 2-year-old niece is a Wiggles freak. And didn't they make more money in one year (2005, IIRC) than the next two biggest entertainment acts from Australia (AC/DC and Nicole Kidman) combined? It'll be interesting to see if they can outdo AC/DC again in a year when the latter group has a new album out.
  5. I checked every band except Aerosmith and AC/DC, and even those two I left unchecked on the basis of their "classic" material. If the question only related to their music of the last 10-15 years, I would have checked them all.
  6. "Stairway To Heaven". Robert Plant himself introduced it as "a song of hope" in The Song Remains The Same, so who am I to argue?
  7. U2 usually opens their shows with "Where The Streets Have No Name". Rush's opening number changed from tour to tour, but they've typically used "Three Blind Mice" followed by the Three Stooges theme as their intro music as they took the stage. Yes used an excerpt from Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite" for the same purpose.
  8. Weren't all the girls on Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy album cover originally nude?
  9. I bought a PS3 a few months ago, mainly for use as a Blu-Ray player, and have been slowly building up a Blu-Ray library, so far mainly upgrades from my standard DVD collection. My latest acquisition is U2 Rattle And Hum, which has always been my favorite music-oriented film, and has recently been released in the Blu-Ray format. As one would expect, the film itself is just as good as it's ever been. For those unfamiliar with the film, it depicts U2 at (IMHO) their peak, during the Joshua Tree tour of 1987-88. The music is a tour de force through the band's 1980s catalogue, plus a few "new" s
  10. Q: What do Deadheads say when they run out of drugs? A: "My God, what is that awful music?"
  11. Or the songwriting front, for that matter. Back on topic, don't forget the drum solo in Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida". Also, someone mentioned "Moby Dick", but an even better John Bonham drum song is "Bonzo's Montreux" (from the Coda album). And I'm not sure if this counts, but Frank Beard is tapping his drumsticks on something (probably the edge of one of his drums) during the first part of ZZ Top's "LaGrange".
  12. "Time Table" - Genesis "Mr. Radio" - Electric Light Orchestra "The Rock/Love Reign O'er Me" - The Who
  13. "Rock Me Amadeus" by Falco is another song that refers to itself (not to mention the artist) by name: 1985, Austrian rock singer Falco records "Rock Me Amadeus"
  14. "Hang On To Your Life" by The Guess Who ends with a spoken quote from Psalm 22: They gaped upon me with their mouths As a ravening and a roaring lion I am poured out like water And all my bones are out of joint My heart is like wax It is melted in the midst of my bowels My strength is dried up like a potsherd And my tongue cleaveth to my jaws And thou hast brought me into the dust of death
  15. Actually I'd stop at New Adventures In Hi-Fi. I thought Up was hit-and-miss, and Reveal was lackluster all around.
