/thread because there's no classic rock song more well-known/better than Peace of Mind?

Lol ok.


We're all intitled to our opinion. And in my naive mind, Boston are Gods and I treat them more or less like a religion.

Limelight by Rush. It's a pretty well known Rush song among people who know... anything about music.
Currently attempting to learn: The Dissentience by Protest The Hero in it's entirety.

I would argue against that, but you admitted you're naive, so whatever :P

Just because Sabbath are the godfathers of Heavy Metal, doesn't mean their early stuff doesn't fall under the category of Classic Rock too. I mean, Led Zeppelin are also one of the pioneers of Heavy Metal, but we still refer to them mainly as Classic Rock artists.

Though, from my list, Sabbath are definitely the least classic rocky there.

Apart from Heard it through the Grapevine and Iron Man I think that list is brilliant.
Some contributions I would like to add though:
Derek & The Dominos - Layla
The Beatles - Hey Jude
Bob Dylan - Like a Rolling Stone
The Animals - House Of The Rising Sun
Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
- These a very common songs but are good if you are trying to get into Classic Rock.

No problem.

I actually learned a lot of harmony and lead guitar skills from playing/learning Boston songs, they pretty much taught me how to play.

Have fun
