The Big three
Most overplayed:
1-Layla
2-Stairway to Heaven
3-Freebird

They all are great tunes, but sheesh. Howabout some other tunes by these guys.

This isn't classic rock really, but I listen to "the mix" hits of the 80's 90's and more. ALL THE PLAY IS JOURNEY AND STYX.

I hate these bands. they remind me of Creed. Hewy Lewis is played a lot, Heart of Rock and Roll...

and someone mentioned Rock and Roll all night and party every day....maybe the worst song ever.

Actually, it's by Derek and the Dominoes.

But if I had to pick a song that sux now, I'd say Free Bird.

Stairway to Heaven...being played over and over again.

Yet another reason I don't like Led Zeppelin.

Anything by KISS is overplayed. Once is too many times.

Stairway to God Damn Heaven.
I hate that one song called "Downtown" by some girl singer, it's really old but it's so annoying and if you hear it once it's etched into your mind for the rest of your life.

He probably means the solo Eric Clapton version. Wasn't it written by Clapton about George Harrisons girlfriend at the time any-ways?

Here in Long Island, NY, U.S.A., they overplay Freebird and Scenes From An Italian Restaurant. The classic rock stations in the area have a rule: Billy Joel, The Doors, The Stones, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd must be played ever hour. They play a lot of U2, but always the same 5 songs. Stairway To Heaven doesn't get played that much anymore. Call me kooky, but I'll always love that song. I've got an awesome version from the Zeppelin BBC sessions. You gotta check it out!

Zooropa16,
What part of The Island are you from? I've never seen anyone from our area around here.

I have to agree with American Pie. I have never, ever, ever liked that song.

But then again, that damn "Like a Rock" chevy song drives me bonkers. Here are some sample lyrics:

Twenty years now
Where'd they go?
Twenty years now
I don't know
I sit and I wonder sometimes
Where they've gone


Okay, my ass could write better lyrics than that!
