Most overplayed classic rock song ever

You know, the one they play WAY too much on classic rock stations and you get so sick of it. My vote goes hands down to Maggie Mae by Rod Stewart.

Note: you don't have to dislike the song to see it is overplayed, you can like it but still think they play it too much. I would also be interested to hear if anyone has ever been turned against a song they used to like because of this.

I'm glad someone finally feels the same way I do about "Hotel California." It's a horrible, horrible song.

gawd, me three. HATE IT. Always have.

How about Stairway to Heaven?

Tho I'll admit, with "Like a Rock" being played *ad nauseum* on truck ads, I'd say Bob is the real winner.

or is that loser?

Ditto! He's got some other great songs too, so why must they constantly torture us with that one? Also have to agree with Maggie Mae...that one always seems to be on too.

I never get sick of Hotel California, Free Bird, or Stairway. *hides* Guess I'm a freak...what else is new?

Just as you find me
Always I will be
A little bit too free
With myself

Definitely Hotel California. I used to love it, but now I can only take it maybe twice a year which sucks.
It also seems I hear a lot of Dream On whenever I flip on the classic rock stations here.

Do you have an opinion, a mind of your own?
I thought you were special, I thought you should know

Oh this is an easy one. 'American Pie' by Don MaClean.

Other possibles could include:

Absolutely anything by the Eagles or Elton John
Absolutely anything recorded by Fleetwood Mac between 1975 and 1977
Stairway to Heaven
Imagine (not ROCK as such, but well it is just a label, ain't it).


------------------
So will we die of shock
Die without a trial
Die on Good Friday
While holding each other tight
This is kind of about you
This is kind of about me
We just kind of lost our way
We were looking to be free

But one day
We'll float...

Ok. Triple M have intentionally killed many classic rock songs. Anything by Pink Floyd, Zeplin, the Eagles, Cold Chisel, Kiss, AC/DC, blah....anything rock. I used to listen to that station and now cant stand them or that music cos of it.
