Carl Posted July 9, 2014 Report Share Posted July 9, 2014 Fivethirtyeight.com used Songfacts to do a bit of research on this story about Classic Rock, examining what it is and how it has changed. They found that the peak year was 1973, and over half the songs played on Classic Rock radio came from the era 1973 to 1982. Also interesting is where the strongholds are for various artists in the genre (Washington DC loves REM, AC/DC is big in Denver). It's always a shock to the system when you hear a band you grew up with played on a Classic Rock station, but it appears to be more a factor of quality than age.
