    Songs that should be retired for ten years

    Africa - Toto. No explanation necessary.

    Imagine - John Lennon. I bet if he was alive he'd agree.

    Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen. Seriously, give it a rest. Punk rock was invented because of shit like this.


    Feel free to add to the list or say fuck off.

    Love me some Africa. Helluva song.

    But yeah. Bohemian Rhapsody. Great song, but got overdone with the recent movie.

    Old Town Road and the Cowboy Boogie need to go away. Forever, ideally.

    I'd chose a different Skynyrd - What's That Smell?

    And yes on the Stones. And I'm getting there on the Beatles.

    I would go the other direction and say if I could only listen to the Stones and the Clash for the rest of my life I would be ok, but hey your world.

    I was gonna say that. I’d be okay, really okay, with never hearing Stairway To Heaven again, ever.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    Back when I worked in a guitar store we had a similar thing. There was a whole group of annoying lurkers/customers we called Stevie Ray Vaughanabies.

    Too funny - wasn't this a boomer/gen-X complaint 20+yrs ago?
    The only music I hear that I can't dictate to the artificial intelligence is CBC radio now. Guess that's the nice thing about being stuck in the vehicle, forgot the mobile device, and all there is is radio 'pop' music on the airwaves - the hit cycle can't be more than a few months theses days, if that. But ya, there is overplayed stuff that makes me cringe when doing my best to engage my lady' friends at a gathering. At least I am not listening to it for the money or laziness

    U2 - When the Streets Have No Name. People are dying trying to find the Joshua tree from the album cover. Do us a favor and bring the song with you.

    The Doors - Riders on the Storm. Stop playing this every time a rain cloud appears on the horizon. Just stop playing it, period.

    John Denver - Take Me Home, Country Roads. Why the fuck would you play this at a hockey game?

    The Deep Tracks channel on XM is good when I feel like a little classic rock. Plays the bands, just not the usual tracks.

    Ha ha, plate o' shrimp, I just listened to It's Only Rock & Roll nearly all the way through (and a good chunk of Exile fairly recently). Still holds up; if you're too jaded, it's your loss.

    Yeah, though, the only Beatles music I've felt I've needed to listen to in the past year or two has been cover versions (for example, the freaking awesome Beatles covers album by the Japanese punk band Nicotine gets played, loud, when I'm in the right mood).

    Jesus, the local Classic rock station plays Boston a lot. For fucks sake. And Steve Miller. I mean, even if you're a fan, how many fucking times can you hear shit that's been around OVER FIFTY YEARS before, saying, eh, maybe something else?

    Thank God Billy Joel isn't played much anymore.

    Wow, those are both strange projects. I think I'd commit suicide if I had to spend that much time there. 'The Walmart of music stores' is an apt description, but I think it's more like Best Buy in that it's a guitar store for people who know nothing about guitars.

    I remember the first time I set foot in a Guitar Center. The one on Ventura in Sherman Oaks. The minute we walked in I was searching for the door. It was the antithesis of cool. My brother picked a brand new Strat off the wall with a ridiculously low price tag and said, "well this just killed everyone else". And he was right. When they finally opened one in my small town (about six years ago) it put the final nail in the coffin of the independent music store near my house.
