Never been a huge fan of that song. I know it's not a bad song but it bores me to death... maybe cos it's so damn overplayed on classic rock radio!

The Fray sucks.


They play Avenged Sevenfold a lot here and they're complete trash. Songs by Sublime get played a lot too, and they're terrible. I'm thinking more of bands that get constant play, but yeah, those come to mind.

I don't listen to 102.1, our alternative station, anymore anyway. Either it's gone way downhill or my tastes have really changed. It's probably a combination of both

that fact is most radio sucks, they play lots of shit music and they play the odd good song so many times that you get sick of it. i haven't listened to any radio for years. literally.


Whenever I put on the radio in the car I end up channel hopping so much that I just turn it off and sit in silence the rest of the drive.
That's only when I don't have my iPod with me, naturally.

Uhh, this might also explain why I'm so distant from modern music today too .
It has it's drawbacks. :/

word, me too

radio pretty much sucks

and don't even get me started on the rap they play on the radio. Bubba Sparxx? The hell? Terrible.

When I lived in Evansville our local "alternative rock" station would play some "classics" too, and they always played that Cat Scratch Fever song... i HATE that song

I don't get why radio stations don't have more varied playlists, like even stations that play a mix of modern and old always play the same 5 new songs and the same 5 old songs... like there are so many songs out there you could play, why play the same ones over and over

Oops, dunno how I missed your post. Yeah I agree actually. I liked the song the first few times I heard it. But after the 94857594th time, it just gets to your brain. Dream On is quite probably the #1 most ridiculously overplayed song on NY's 104.3. I've completely stopped listening to that station cos of all the same songs they keep playing over and over again. There are so many untapped resources that they never even touch like Pink Floyd's discography before Dark Side, for instance. Why???

Thank God for B&C. Or else I would have continued to rely on the radio for discovering new music.


Also, Canadiens mentioned Stairway. Surprisingly, it hardly gets played over here on the radio. On the other hand, that Talking Heads song Once In A Lifetime... I don't know any other TH song cos they don't play anything else.

Tre is right. The radio has ruined many good songs for me. But for many years, it was the primary route to discover new music!

you aren't gonna discover new bands listening to classic rock radio.

I know! I didn't just listen to classic rock radio. But nevertheless, even the contemporary and alternative rock stations for the most part play the same shit over and over again.

Actually it's funny. The classic rock station here plays new songs by classic bands all the time. They played Beautiful Day all the time in 2000/2001 and they play COBL now.
