I disagree, I think they're all rock. Rock and roll is hard to define, a lot of things fit under that blanket term. The real question is, are all of these "classic" (ie Nirvana, Metallica, Bon Jovi)? Not that I don't like those bands, but I think that's using a pretty loose definition of classic.

That's one of the first signs that you are getting older. Bands that were new or upcoming are now turning into "classic" rock bands. There's some 10 year old kid laughing at your taste in music right now.

I remember when songs from my youth got played on the oldies station in New York. Oldies?? It can't be....but it was...

Although I may ask,Meatloaf??

Hey Blue....I have to say I don't think Paradise By The Dashboard Light would be a question being on a top 199 list. On the other hand Bat Out Of Hell is a great rock classic and I would have placed it higher, perhaps in the top 20.

Back about ten years ago, at that time I had heard the album continued to sell upwards of a million copies a year. I am sure it is still a big seller.
