What's the most underplayed classic rock song of all time?

Recommended Posts

Share The Land ~ The Guess Who

This tune gets almost no airplay. It's always "AMerican woman" or "no sugar tonight - new mother nature" that gets played from the Guess Who.

I was absolutely giddy when I heard it on Q-92 Classics Cafe (Jane's show). I even told her too. I live in the city where they come from and that song never gets airplay! :doh:

Another couple of songs that don't get played much up here in Canada are:

Seasons In The Sun

Volunteers

White Rabbit

I can imagine in some southern states (perhaps Tennessee :wink:) the song Volunteers is overplayed, but in Canada it doesn't get any airtime, just like White Rabbit. Not sure if there's a grudge there or something! :laughing:

The following bands/artists are underplayed here in Perth:

The Who

Lynyrd Skynyrd (except for Sweet Home Alabama)

CSN/CSNY

Bob Dylan

Led Zeppelin

Ramones

Well, of course there are many less popular bands that are severely underplayed, but I thought these ones might surprise some people, since they could be considered overplayed in other countries.

"Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zep

I only recall maybe once or twice ever hearing it on the radio.

Only heard it 7 times over 4 years on my radio station.

As for here:

Parachute Woman-The Rolling Stones

You don't hear this one on the radio.

Living in the UK, the ONLY Joni Mitchell song ever heard is Big Yellow Taxi. Kind of wish somebody would tow it away and start playing ANYTHING from Court and Spark.
