Here's a question for you. Our cover band plays a mix of rock songs from the 70's to now. We do a lot of common bar songs that people know and like, basically the ones everyone here trashes. But it works. I'm not sure we really ever put ourselves in a category, other than to say we're a loud rock cover band. Last Friday night we played at one of our repeat venues (really great place all the way around), and they advertised us as a "Hot Classic Rock" band. Which got me thinking; is that what we are? What defines Classic Rock? While it is true that a large number of our songs are traditional "Classic Rock" songs, we also have a large number that are not, at least not in my mind. Because when I think of Classic Rock, I think Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nazareth, AC/DC, Tom Petty, etc.. (and these all appear on our setlist), but we also have songs like; Paralyzer- Finger Eleven Gold On The Ceiling- The Black Keys Flagpole Sitta- Harvey Danger The Middle- Jimmy Eat World Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy- Big-N-Rich American Ride- Toby Keith Hicktown- Jason Aldean Let There Be Cowgirls- Chris Cagle Man In The Box- Alice In Chains Runaway Train- Soul Asylum (also Just Like Anyone) Little Miss Can't Be Wrong- Spin Doctors Beverly Hills- Weezer (also Hash Pipe) Song 2- Blur My Own Worst Enemy- Lit She Hates Me- Puddle Of Mud Now, when I look at it and think about it, a lot of these songs are 10-20 years old now, so technically I guess they could be Classic Rock, but how is the genre defined? And is that what we are? A "Classic Rock" band (yes, we do a couple modern country tunes and they are some of our most requested songs)?
